Software Engineering
Toronto, ON, Canada
Posted on Wednesday, October 11, 2023
Our mission is to provide access to life-changing educational and career opportunities. Passage's platform empowers immigrants and international students by matching their talents with the most crucial workforce needs in their destination countries. We then work to provide financial solutions and connect them to the logistical support they need, facilitating their transformational journeys to study or work abroad.The team that we have assembled thus far is very impressive (including IOI medalists, previous co-founders and C suites of successful startups.) Since we want to build a very lean team, we are looking for super talented and mission driven Senior Software Engineers to join our team. We code in Python, Django, TypeScript, React, and React Native, and are open to adopting new technologies when needed.We are currently in search of full-stack engineers, and we recognize that software engineers often have their strengths either in frontend or backend development. If your expertise leans towards frontend development, we highly value your eye for design and the ability to craft engaging user experiences. On the other hand, if your expertise is primarily in backend development, we expect your proficiency in architecting complex services and databases. In both cases, we place a strong emphasis on your ability to contribute to informed product decisions.It's important to note that we maintain an in-office working policy, and we require candidates to either reside in Toronto or be open to relocating to the area and committing to a five-day-a-week in-office schedule.
