Lead Software Engineer (Go)
Quoter
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Job Description

About Quoter

Our cloud-based sales quoting platform allows IT companies to fire off beautiful, accurate quotes in seconds. Our disruptive pricing model and automated approval workflows empower IT companies to turn every customer touchpoint into a sales opportunity. Our customers report significant improvement to their bottom line with more quotes being created with better margins in less time.

We’re looking for brilliant and highly motivated people to join our rapidly growing team. This is a ground-floor opportunity for the right individual to join our tightly-knit crew and have a direct impact on the future of our partners and organization.

We understand that our success as an organization is equal to the sum of its individual parts – the people behind it. We are committed to providing an environment that you will thrive in. One that is challenging; one that is supportive toward your personal and professional goals; one that is transparent and collaborative; and one that recognizes and rewards hard work. Our core values are the cornerstone of who we are:

  • Hunger – Think big
  • Agility – Start small
  • Transparency – Transparency promotes trust, accountability, and responsibility
  • Continuous Improvement – Encourage continuous, incremental improvement of our product, process, and people
  • Empathy – Approach every situation with kindness and respect
  • Humility – Crave feedback. Be open-minded. Celebrate failure
  • Collaboration – Work together as a team. Support each other
  • Positivity – Create an environment that is positive and fun. Stop negative behaviour
  • Equal Opportunity – All people are created equal in their potential to achieve greatness

We’re well-funded and have an amazing team experienced in growing and scaling modern SaaS companies.

We have a beautiful office in downtown Vancouver, but are remote flexible. Most of our team is located in Vancouver, which is ideal, but we are looking for the right person for the job regardless of location.

The Opportunity

Beyond the obligatory perks you'd expect to find at any burgeoning tech startup (see below), the following is what you can expect life at Quoter will be like:

As a key member of our foundational engineering team of eight, you will be architecting, estimating, developing, and testing new features and improvements using an agile development approach. You will be working directly with the founders of the company, who are experienced developers with a proven track record in SaaS.

You will be working on greenfield Go microservices that will build on, and over time, replace, our monolithic CakePHP app. You’ll be working with bleeding edge technology including Go, Docker, Kubernetes, RabbitMQ, Terraform, Github, and AWS.

Clean code, collaboration, iterative development, rapid releases, and continuous improvement form the culture of our engineering team. We prioritize team velocity over individual performance. We work closely together and love sharing knowledge to elevate the collective skill level of our team. We lead with trust, transparency, and autonomy and focus on results.

Our development process involves two-week sprints, with epics being split up as granular as possible to parallelize work. We build and ship one core feature at a time, as we believe juggling too many things creates bottlenecks and ultimately slows us down. No individual developer owns any one part of the app – anyone can pick up any task. Collaboration, pair-programming, and peer review allow us to ship faster while maintaining code quality and reliability. And we're constantly optimizing how we work in order to be as efficient as possible.

About You

  • You are a true self-starter. You thrive on being productive with little external motivation, and feel a sense of urgency to get things done.
  • You take pride in your work and strive for quality in everything you do
  • You enjoy being challenged and taking ownership of projects to see them through to delivery
  • You love problem solving and have an innate sense of curiosity
  • You are always eager to learn and improve and have very little ego
  • You enjoy collaborating closely with others
  • You are comfortable and productive working remotely
  • You have 3+ years of software development experience
  • You are passionate about code quality and have a thorough understanding software development concepts that promote readability, maintainability, and testability
  • You are experienced in Golang and have a solid grasp of idiomatic Go programming
  • You have experience with microservice architecture
  • You have advanced knowledge of unit and integration testing
  • You have exemplary written and verbal English skills

Job Description

There’s no denying it, the financial world is messy and confusing. People suffer as they try to manage their financial lives and financial institutions haven’t cracked the code at helping them along the way. Legacy systems and antiquated distribution models have created a huge gap in the market, leaving hundreds of millions of people vulnerable in North America. As unexpected events occur in these people’s lives, many will encounter life changing situations and serious debt. It’s an inconvenient truth, but the one size fits all products, paper forms and fax machines are often the harsh status quo of the industry.

At Breathe Life, we’re building technology that helps people take control of their financial future so they can do what’s right for them, their loved ones and have peace of mind. Our platform helps them learn about financial products, identify the ones best suited for them, and make their purchase online when they’re ready. Breathe Life is shaping an industry that hasn’t changed in 100 years and having a massive impact in the process.

Breathe Life has secured significant financial and strategic backing from Diagram, a venture launchpad focused on insurance, financial and health technology. Diagram is backed by Power Financial Corporation, Great-West Lifeco, and IGM Financial through Portag3, along with 50+ leading angel investors. Our backing from Diagram gives us a significant competitive advantage that will help us win our market.

We’re looking for software engineers, programmers, devs, coders to join our growing engineering team. We believe it’s important for our team to represent the society we serve and we value diversity.

There is a lot of software to build as we tackle this huge opportunity: from managing and deploying great content online, to building education tools for our consumers, to building best in class user experiences on par with the best consumer startups in the world, to building tools for brokers to assist where they are most valuable. Our company is inherently data driven and there are plenty of opportunities down the road to apply Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning against actual problems with high quality data.
