ABOUT US

Newton is Canada's first no-fee cryptocurrency brokerage. Newton is crypto as it should be: with native mobile apps, instant approval, and no commissions. We’re looking for an experienced software engineer to help us build scalable and robust services in supporting our core business and growing user base.

Our platform runs entirely on AWS. We’ve built our core services with Python in the Django framework and use Postgres databases. Not limited to Python, we also use Java and Javascript for our other services. We use Ansible for configuration and deployment, Docker for our local dev environment, and Jenkins for CI.

ABOUT YOU

To be successful in this role, you will own the software delivery cycle, from gathering requirements, to leading the design and implementation, as well as maintaining and improving existing solutions.

You can make technical decisions and can communicate the tradeoffs. You write high-quality, testable code. When mistakes are made, you own up to them and fix them. You work well in a small collaborative team; every member is a key contributor. You will mentor junior engineers in delivering solutions and guide them on best practices.

  • Excellent written and oral communicator

  • Familiarity with Scrum
