SENIOR FULL STACK ENGINEER / TEAM LEAD
Why hello there!
Thanks for stopping by! We’re stoked to have you here and are excited at the chance to meet you!
We’re looking for a senior full stack django/python engineer to take the lead on a total rebuild of our platform. This leadership role will work with and report directly to our CEO, requiring a high level of technical knowledge and guidance as you’ll be working with us to build our platform from the ground up.
If you’ve been looking for a chance to build a product from the ground up… this is it. As Lead Developer you’ll have direct input over every technical aspect of our new platform, from the first line of code to the last.
You’ll be responsible for building and managing a support team under you and working with our design / map to create the perfect platform for our users. This full time position will involve a mix of at-home remote and on-site work requiring a fun, energetic, organized and well rounded personality who isn’t afraid to think outside the box and go with the flow.
We’re a start-up, however, we’re a secure & profitable startup built on sales and revenue, not investments and dreams. We’re well beyond proof of concept with over $2m processed in our first 8 months and are ready to scale, and scale fast.
As a part of a start-up you’ll be required to wear multiple hats including lead development of our new platform (yay), light development of our current platform (OK), data migration (boo), feature building for future releases (yay), and building up a dev team as we expand (yay).
If you enjoy being part of something new & fresh, are able to think for yourself and thrive in an environment where you’re writing the instruction manual vs following it, this is the position for you.
Pavement is a vendor first food ordering marketplace, a virtual shopping mall for the F&B industry. We’re the first e-commerce solution built by the industry for the industry. As a vendor-first platform built on the idea that a product focussed on the support vendors and their brands will result in the best possible customer experience. We currently offer scheduled (and contactless) pickup all over Ontario and commission free on-demand delivery within the GHA. Really, all this is a long way of saying we’re a food ordering platform that doesn’t suck.
Pavement wasn’t born from big-tech, it was the product of 15 years experience in the hospitality industry throwing large scale events and creating unique and wild dining experiences. Our goal is to build a fair-for-all platform that supports local industry and the hard working people behind it. We’re firm believers that code is for everyone choosing to hire our team based on passion and willingness to learn. No matter what the “Tech Bro’s” tell ya, if you’re able to send a text message you can learn basic code, so don’t be scared to apply.
We’re strong believers in local communities, choosing to build our business on the idea that money made from a community should stay in a community. On a micro level we employ local teams to manage local vendors, invest what we can of regional profits back into small local humanitarian organizations. On a higher level we recognize our roll as a business to the global community by supporting small, grassroots humanitarian organizations with a particular focus on youth and refugees/newcomers. On the whole, we generally try to be decent & fair people.
