Senior Full Stack Developer
Vantage is looking for 2-3 Senior Full-Stack Developers to join our team.
At Vantage we turn data into insights and actions. Join one of the hottest emerging tech companies in Toronto at the forefront of an emerging $11B global market. Leading retailers businesses use the Vantage turnkey Retail Media Network solutions to drive more value from their data. Vantage continues to significantly out-perform industry benchmarks due to its advanced AI technology.
We deliver Amazon-like data driven marketing capabilities for vendors, CPGs, brands (think: Whirlpool, Makita, Dewalt, Huggies, Pampers, Enfamil, Adidas) by integrating with retailers (think: Home Depot, Walmart, Lowe’s, Longo’s, Metro, Ren’s Pets) and making their retail data valuable. We help our clients to act, react, and grow their business based on what retail data is telling them. At Vantage we’re building the tools for the retailers that want to win.
Headquartered in Toronto with a New York office when we’re not working fully remotely, the Vantage team is diverse, creative and fun. Our culture is open and flexible. We believe that people do their best work and are happiest when they have the freedom to shape their environment and are surrounded by amazing colleagues. Our Friday debrief and bevvie session is an important part of who we are.
Vantage is well funded, and we are enjoying strong early success. We are looking to expand the team and take it to the next level. That said, we’re picky about the people we invite to join the team. We’re looking for true professionals with a passion for doing great work and driving real success. We’re looking for people to help build out all aspects of the pipeline, processes and our partnerships.
We are a small team but growing quickly. You will report directly to the CTO, and subsequent hires that you source will join the team under your leadership. For the first 6-12 months, you’ll be spending the bulk of your time coding, but you will be expected to lead projects, design architecture, make technical decisions about the future of our product and help with recruiting to grow the team further.
Vantage’s tech stack is Python/Django on the backend, with React on the frontend. Based on our current priorities, the expected split for the next year is about 75% backend and 25% frontend work. We use Postgres, Redis, Redshift for storage and analysis of huge amounts of ecommerce data.
Most of the backend work is building integrations with other platforms.
The other component of our platform is the AI tooling for using commerce data to help retailers and brands succeed. You don’t need to be an ML expert, but you will be expected to learn at least the basics, and will be responsible for the development and integration of AI components into the system.
Desired Qualifications and Experience
- 5+ years of relevant experience, ideally with a Python stack web application. Python experience is not required as long as you’re willing to learn fast.
- Experience with dev ops, basic Linux system admin tasks and AWS, Azure, and GCP
- Extreme attention to detail with the ability to juggle multiple projects
- Excellent organizational, verbal and written communication skills
- Previous experience working with retail, advertising, ecommerce or start-ups would be a huge plus
