  • Contribute actively to strategic technical decision-making processes, identifying opportunities to enhance engineering velocity and improve the overall quality of work-life
  • Guide and spearhead changes to engineering processes and cultural practices, ensuring continuous enhancement and optimization
  • Set a compelling example for the engineering team across all aspects of work, from decision-making prowess to maintaining a healthy work-life balance

  • Passion for fostering talent and supporting the professional development of a team of skilled engineers
  • Ability to seamlessly switch contexts between languages, frameworks, and paradigms
  • Eagerness to learn from colleagues and contribute to a collaborative environment
  • Ability to approach technical problems at both high and implementation levels, demonstrating strong systems-thinking skills

  • Knowledge of Domain Driven Design (DDD) and Command Query Responsibility Separation (CQRS) to manage coupling and define boundaries
  • Experience with MySQL/Postgresql and Redis
  • Familiarity with programming languages like PHP, Javascript, Kotlin, Java or Swift/Objective C
  • Previous experience in the restaurant-tech industry
Our commitment to our team members:
  • Opportunity: It’s an exciting time to work at 7shifts—our product is evolving and our team is scaling quickly. Scale like this offers many unique learning opportunities in a short period of time, accelerating the professional growth of our team members
  • Challenge: We’re tackling real problems for restaurant owners and we’re just getting started. Working at 7shifts means playing a key role in solving those problems and elevating an entire industry
  • Culture: There’s a reason we’re one of the best workplaces in North America! We value integrity, adaptability and collaboration in an environment that moves quickly to drive incredible impact

  • Health and Wellness: Competitive health benefits right from the start, lifestyle spending accounts, access to corporate discounts, and a parental leave program that supports caregivers during an important time in their lives
  • Flexibility: Our team is intentional around how and where we work—whether that’s remotely, in person at our Toronto and Saskatoon offices, or a mix of both. Plus, we offer a flexible vacation policy to encourage everyone to recharge when they need it. Oh, and a ‘90 Day Shift’ program that supports our team members in exploring the world
  • Support: We set our team members up for success with the latest Apple technology, a home office set up, and some fun 7shifts swag to make it official! Plus, we take professional growth seriously and support this through coaching, IDPs, peer and leader feedback, internal promotions, and more
