About Lufa Farms

Lufa Farms is an urban farm-to-table e-commerce platform helping create a better food system.

Job Description


Before You Read Any Further: We’re looking for self-driven developers, ready to learn, and motivated by the opportunity to innovate by working in an environment that encourages project ownership, tackling new code stacks, teamwork, and jumping outside of your comfort zone.

Lufa Farms is a company with the vision of building a city of rooftop farms. With four already spread across the city, and an online marketplace focussed on fresh, local, and responsible food, we’re looking to grow our Software Development team. However, our pretty marketplace isn’t the only part of the job. We’re innovators in the food space, developing all of the software we use to pick, pack, and ship thousands of orders each day, in-house. Take note, if this post is up, we’re still looking at all applications submitted.

We’d like to thank all applicants in advance for your interest and effort in applying for this position. However, only selected candidates will be contacted for an interview.


  • Develop and maintain a wide range of built-in-house software and tools. Past projects have varied widely; from using open-source facial recognition algorithms for an employee punch-clock. React web and mobile applications for our warehouse, to numerous customer facing projects to better the experience of our users;
  • Take on projects individually and as a team, owning your work, and that of the team, to ensure a successful outcome;
  • Focus on the implementation of best development practices (clean, maintainable code, ongoing integration, code review, etc.);
  • Take the initiative to continually improve existing infrastructure to facilitate scalability, and code efficiency;
  • Stay up to date with the latest web development technologies (Current framework is heavily PHP based, with recent projects incorporating new technologies such as NodeJS and React Native);
  • Determine and correct bugs (a necessary part of owning your own work).


Some or all of the following requirements are great, but your own initiative to learn some of the following is also an asset to the team.

  • At least 1-2 years of relevant experience (yes, junior developers welcome, but you’ve got to impress us);
  • BS/BA in Computer Science, or equivalent experience;
  • Excited at the opportunity to work on a variety of different projects;

  • Familiar with MVC frameworks such as Yii and Lumen Laravel;
  • Basic proficiency in a UNIX/Linux environment;
  • Experience with SQL queries and database schema design (every project utilizes at least one SQL query);
  • Capable of managing pressure in a time sensitive environment;
  • Ability to learn new technologies or paradigms;
  • Comfortable investigating and problem solving independently;
  • Excellent communication skills (French and/or English proficiency).


  • Genuine interest in Lufa Farms, our mission, and business model.
  • Attention to detail. Please include the square root of 81 somewhere within your application.


  • 40-45 hours per week within a flexible schedule (Monday to Friday);
  • Office is located directly across from Marché Central in Ahuntsic. A modern office space with small kitchen and plenty of physically distanced space;
