Software Engineer At CareGuide

Location: Toronto, Ontario
Salary: $55K - 100K CAD per year

Job Description

CareGuide is one of Canada’s fastest growing startups. We make it easier for families and individuals to find care for their loved ones through a portfolio of specialized marketplaces, including, Nanny Lane,, and 26 others.

We’re a tight-knit group. Our regular team socials, bi-weekly cross-team meetups, and catered Friday lunches help with this, but the real secret is hiring people who care about their colleagues and are excited to build something big.

This culture helps fuel a high-trust workplace, which allows us to do fun things like offer unlimited vacation. Our team is constantly looking to improve and works hard to build each other up. We succeed and fail together. In this vein, our company is seriously committed to your growth.

What We Can Promise You

Unmatched learning. CareGuide has significant expertise in growth hacking, scaling systems, and technical topics like Ruby on Rails, React, and GraphQL. Our goal is to help you develop your technical leadership and management skills, and give you the runway to do your best work ever.

Extensive mentorship. Weekly one-on-one’s, frequent skip-level meetings with technical and business leadership, and a learning budget all exist to help you excel.

Continuous growth. We hope you’re excited to feel challenged every day here. We’ll make sure you’re constantly exposed to new opportunities to push yourself.

Exponential career trajectory. “Careers not jobs” is a central value at CareGuide. We're committed to making CareGuide the best place to grow your career.

Who are we looking for?

Software engineers at CareGuide ship high impact features that delight our users. You work well with other stakeholders in the company to make our best ideas a reality. Your colleagues see you as an expert in one or more areas of the application. You break down high level goals into achievable projects for yourself and others, with clear boundaries for staged delivery to track progress, understand value, and validate assumptions.

You use your experience and clarity of thought to reduce complexity not only in the projects you are working on, but across the whole team. You quickly identify the risks and alternative approaches to the projects you and your team work on.

Our cross-functional product squads are organized around areas of impact for our users. You'll join a squad working on features to help get new users to join our marketplaces, help users find a match, or kick off a special project. You'll help mentor those around you to improve their skills and expand the breadth of their capabilities. You are interested in the next steps of your career and are able to articulate your journey. We can help you get there: whether it be people management, a pure technical track, or across functions into Data Science or Product Management.

How we do it

We follow modern software development practices, including TDD, have a solid CI pipeline, and perform rigorous code reviews. We are analytics driven and continuously run a/b tests to inform our product design. You will be responsible for creating clean code, demonstrating great judgement with your pragmatic design and architecture choices.

Our current stack is Ruby on Rails, React + Redux, GraphQL, MySQL, Redis, NodeJS, and AWS. What would you add or change?


- Many years of professional software development experience on the web
- Deep understanding of various data stores: traditional SQL databases, and newer NoSQL solutions too
- Track record of successful project delivery, preferably with a consumer product at scale
- Strong communication and leadership skills


- Expert in React, Ruby on Rails or NodeJS
- Good judgement on how and when to use unit and integration testing and CI platforms to ensure the integrity and stability of large-scale web applications
- Experience in DevOps and scaling web applications to hundreds of millions of users

Anything else?

CareGuide cares about you. As an employee, you'd be enrolled in our benefits program, have a budget for educational purposes, and the hardware you'd need to be at your best. Given our product and space, we offer maternal and paternal leave policy for new moms and dads. Our team values diversity. In fact, one of CareGuide's values is "Greater Than Our Parts: We know diverse people, ideas, and approaches create better outcomes."

We encourage applications from individuals of all races, ethnicities, religions, genders, sexual orientations, gender identifications, abilities, incomes, and ages. We are happy to provide accommodations during any part of our hiring process.
