Here’s the impact you’ll make and what we’ll accomplish together:

As a Senior Developer for the Chat team, you will mentor junior team members and help build new features to enhance the overall chat experience for our customers. You will be responsible to roll out chat experience to new business units and pages, work on code refactoring, and lead your team in shipping large-scale applications. You are a guiding voice for developers, who can balance day-to-day workload, with an eye for future improvements of your team and their work.

As a software developer with TELUS Digital, you will be responsible for designing, building and running the software applications which enable innovative, data-driven, customer centric digital experiences for TELUS customers.

You will be working as a part of a friendly, cross-discipline agile team who helps each other solve problems across all functions. As a custodian of customer trust, you will employ best practice in development, security, accessibility and design to achieve the highest quality of service for our customers.

We use a range of technologies to get the job done: JavaScript and Babel (ES2018) coupled with Webpack, React, Redux and other libraries to provide a modern, easy to use Javascript toolchain. A central Design System is used for styling and hosts shared components, while our RESTful APIs are built with Node.js powering our custom services. Quality is a primary concern and we test our applications at multiple levels with automation testers and Product Owners embedded within teams.

  • Ensure cohesive experience across multiple devices.
  • Develop scalable solutions with performance and security in mind.

  • Knowledge about database management and architecture.
  • Understand what technologies other teams are using.
  • Work with designers to help them understand possible technical restrictions.
  • Identify problem areas in code & solutions.
  • Assist with and rapidly test solutions for the team.

You're the missing piece of the puzzle:

  • Demonstrable history of excelling in a team based collaborative environment.
  • Strong team leadership skills (helping lead the team's work)
  • Experience mentoring junior team members, overseeing code quality and evangelizing best practices
  • You also have strong interpersonal, critical thinking, analytical and problem solving skills
  • Proficient with frontend development (ES2015-2016 JavaScript, CSS)
  • Highly experienced knowledge of backend development (Node.js, PostgreSQL, Redis)
  • Expert level knowledge of client-side testing best practices and tooling (we use Jest)
  • Highly skilled in React and Redux
  • Proven experience designing and documenting APIs (we use Node.js, Express, OpenAPI Spec)
  • Highly demonstrable knowledge in building scalable production services and monitoring performance (we use Kibana, NewRelic)
  • Experience with FRP (functional, reactive programming)
  • Experience with the Docker ecosystem

Great-to-haves:

  • Experience with securing applications to common security threats (OWASP Standards)
  • Familiar with accessibility (WCAG 2) best practices
