Job Description

We like to refer to Signiant as Ottawa’s “Best-Kept Tech Secret”! While we are well-known in the Media and Entertainment circles (we even have an Emmy!), and boast one of the most impressive customer rosters of anyone in the city, some folks still don’t know we exist!

Our company is low on ceremony and process and is really about getting out of your way so you can get stuff done. We have been successfully using an Agile Development Methodology for many years that empowers our Software Engineering Teams to develop and advance our products with maximum efficiency and release frequency. We are looking for Agile software developers who have demonstrable skills in collaboration and communication, and can balance feature velocity with high quality code delivery.  


Desired skills and experience:

  • At least 5 years experience in macOS and Windows application development
  • Skilled in moving apps through the approval process
  • Experience in Electron App development
  • Exposure to test-centric Development
  • Familiarity with Agile/Scrum methodologies, and a desire to work within a highly-collaborative, fast-paced team
  • Passionate about delivering high quality software
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills
  • A degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or Computer Engineering


Nice to Have:

  • High-speed networking and network transport protocols
  • Cloud technology including AWS, Azure and GCS
  • Golang exposure
  • Familiarity with AWS, Azure or Google Cloud storage protocols
  • Low-level networking experience
  • Practical machine learning knowledge



If you think you can fit into this environment and want to contribute to making it an even better place to work, give us a shout!
