  • Making pragmatic decisions, taking into account concerns and ideas from the rest of the development team about the overall system architecture.
  • Promptly fixing build errors.
  • Helping to provide support for our production environments as we strive to meet stringent uptime goals.
  • Challenging yourself and the team to experiment with and introduce new and better technologies into the system.
  • Collaborating with your team members and documenting your work using tools like asana, JIRA, wikis, HipChat, and a whiteboard.
  • Presenting occasional Lunch ‘n’ Learn sessions so everyone on the team is familiar with what you’ve been working on.
  • Participating in weekly iteration planning, testing, bug fixing and deploying releases.

Required Qualifications:

  • A Computer Science degree/diploma or equivalent experience.
  • Knowledge of object-oriented design patterns.
  • Experience with the latest web application development frameworks, and an understanding of best practices for web-based user interfaces.
  • UX/HCI experience and a strong empathy for users.

  • A solid grounding in mathematics and statistics is beneficial.
  • Experience developing web applications in a Linux, Mac, or Windows environment is desired.

About Us:

We're passionate about protecting the environment and working with the latest technologies.  Most of our employees live and work in the Vancouver area but we have employees across North America.

Our office is conveniently located in downtown Vancouver a block from a SkyTrain station and adjacent to the Dunsmuir separated bike lanes, so most of our employees take transit or ride their bikes to work.  We have a bike room to hang up wet gear, tools for quick bike repairs, and we subsidize transit passes.

The company provides bagels and fresh organic fruit year round and ice cream in the summer.

The Pulse Energy team is a diverse team that works in a fast-paced, collaborative environment. We value passion, creativity, focused perseverance to get things done, an obsession for customer success, and integrity.  We work hard and have fun, with board game nights, annual company retreats, and social lunches at nearby food carts and local restaurants.
