We’re building a like-minded team that is passionate about building a beautiful product that will change the way people think about eating. We work closely with one another to creatively solve problems and grow at a rapid, sustainable pace. Most importantly, though, we’re always surrounded by delicious food.

Who You Are:

We’re looking for a sharp, focused, and clever Back-End Software Developer to help shape and build our outstanding platform. You speak many (code) languages, and love learning new ones. You have outstanding attention to detail, love solving complicated problems, crushing bugs, and coming up with new features that make people love using our site. You’ll be so proud of the code you write for Platterz that you’ll make sure Grandma is using it.

Desired Skills to Crush It:

  • Ruby and Rails experience is a must
  • You’re comfortable working with OAuth and a REStful API
  • You’re familiar with Postgres, or another relational database server
  • Having worked with Heroku, Redis, Elasticsearch, and Twilio is always a plus- Experience with a third-party payment provider is a plus
  • You’ve used Git (or other version control), and wouldn’t start a project without it
  • You have a sweet portfolio of projects you’ve worked on or contributed to

As with any new startup, your day will be dynamic and exciting, and you’ll be asked to contribute and provide valuable input as we grow. You should also have a love for good food. If you don’t… no comment.

Working With Us:

We’re a performance-driven entrepreneurial team passionate about a job well-done. We embrace learning opportunities, creative problem solving, and ridiculous inside-jokes. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, and make sure to balance out challenging days with fun nights.

We’re accessibly located at Yonge and St. Clair, with lots of amazing lunch options. Not that you’ll need to go far for lunch… We are Platterz after all. If you like being part of startup strategy sessions, attending events with good food and interesting people, and contributing to a creative, innovative environment, then we might be “the one” for you. If this sounds good, let’s talk.

Please provide a resume and cover letter telling us why you think you’re a good fit at Platterz and send it to jobs[at]platterz[dot]ca. Make sure to include your contact details and anything that might help you stand out (projects, portfolios, poems, etc). We read every application that comes our way, and will reach out to successful applicants.

Platterz is an equal opportunities employer, and we don’t discriminate based on race, sex, colour, faith, age, height, hair colour, shoe size, dietary preference, or if you like OneDirection (before or after Zayn left). We encourage anyone who’s right for the job to apply.
