Our platform strives to be the easiest delivery management software on the market, empowering small businesses to save time and fuel, and to work as efficiently as possible. Today, Routific has optimized routes for delivery fleets in more than 900 cities around the world.

We are looking for an exceptional and ambitious engineer who enjoys architecting systems and developing in an agile development environment. As part of our tight-knit engineering team, you will be the specialist in building scalable, flexible systems with an emphasis on improving maintainability. You will be a key contributor to the engineering best-practices at Routific, while working closely with the rest of the engineering team. You will lead the technical design and implementation of our next generation delivery management platform.

We believe employee happiness brings team productivity. Company perks include: generous extended health benefits plan, free gym membership, unlimited vacation policy, education budget for conferences and workshops, top-of-the-line Apple hardware, electric sit/standing desks, and the state-of-the art Herman Miller Aeron chairs.

Routific is a Techstars ‘15 graduate and the winner of Startup Weekend Vancouver 2012.

As the ideal candidate, you:

- love mentoring, leading, and assisting other engineers
- can explain complex systems or algorithms in a clear and concise way
- have 5+ years of professional experience developing full web stack applications

- believe test automation is the only scalable way to ensure quality, and have built and maintained a complex automated test suite
- have built or maintained a large-scale microservice infrastructure
- have production DevOp experience in AWS and Docker

Extra bonus points if you also:

- are a polyglot by nature (besides Javascript, we also use Rust and Common Lisp)
