Software Developer (DApp Experience): Maple Ridge, BC

Do you consider yourself a wizard-like developer of APIs and frameworks? Are you tickled by the thought of showing off your hard work to other developers and showing them just how easy using our platform is? Do you nerd out about bridging the gap between highly technical underlying network framework and the developers themselves? Perhaps you consider yourself a unique creative that expresses yourself by efficiently creating artistic code? Then continue reading because you might be the Software Developer (or one of the few) we’re looking for.

Have you heard of Left?…We do things Right! If you haven’t heard of us, don’t worry, we will forgive you. Our award-winning Community Engagement Program and our top-notch culture have led us to win an award as “Best Workplace BC” and be recognized by the BC Tech Association as the best in BC for “work, life, and play”.

At the heart of our business (what you’ll be working on) is a platform to connect the next billion people using a fully-distributed mobile mesh network for Android and iOS mobile phone platforms, along with IoT devices. Our platform will enable affordable, reliable, resilient, and secure access to the internet and connectivity to all users. Because this platform will be used by more than just us, we need you to ensure that our product meets the needs of our users while meeting the objectives set forth by the company. Through research into market and customer requirements, you will become the subject matter expert for the RightMesh platform and SDK. As you champion the features and functionalities of the product through the release cycle, you will work closely with our technology and development teams to ensure milestones are reached.

Where does all this magic happen? We might have the coolest office space in the Lower Mainland (BC) complete with a games room, library, lots of beer, and plenty of smart and silly people. We are purposefully located out in the ‘burbs so that our employees can live and work in their community. If you do commute it’s only 40 minutes against traffic from downtown Vancouver, and we’re just across the Golden Ears Bridge, so we are extremely accessible to many in the Lower Mainland. And speaking of sky-high real estate prices, you have room to breathe out here and can afford to exhale. Are you ready to join us and change the world yet?
