Software Engineer - Toronto at VTS
Toronto, CA
Our mission is to be Commercial Real Estate’s modern operating system, the place where deals happen, customer relationships are nourished, and real-time market data comes to life. We're growing at an incredible pace and opening a Toronto office to continue to scale our engineering team in a new city! We are looking for experienced full-stack developers to join the team and help build out an ambitious roadmap. The ideal candidate has a passion for user experience as well as meticulous attention to detail.
We’re a team that cares a lot about shipping awesome products that our customers love, being a feedback focused team and making sure everyone feels like an owner in what we’re building. You'll be a key driver of instilling these values in our new Toronto office and play a big role in helping grow the team.

What You'll Do

    • Work closely with engineers, product managers, designers, QA, and other business partners to discover and solve challenges for our customers
    • Collaborate with other engineers to incrementally craft high quality products and APIs for our customers (we deploy multiple times a day)
    • Have organization wide impact through your work, departmental initiatives like brown bags and recruiting, being a mentor or on-boarding buddy, etc.

Build Products That Help...

    • Brokers and landlords manage the lifecycle of a commercial real estate deal - from inquiry to close
    • Landlords manage relationships with their tenants (we analyze the graph of their relationships, provide insights to help close deals, expose risk, and more)
    • Landlords and brokers shorten negotiation and approval times from weeks to hours when closing a deal
    • Landlords analyze and understand risk in their assets
    • Landlords explore the breath of their leasing data with custom reports and business intelligence software

Some Other Challenges You Might Help Solve

    • How do we rethink some of our core data models and foundation to support an international product? (As we’ve expanded into Europe and beyond many of the assumptions we made for a US based market need to be reconsidered for a global user base)
    • How do we reduce the time it takes to onboard new customers onto the VTS platform?
    • How do we drive more usage on our mobile app?
    • And many more… :)
