Nest Wealth is Canada’s largest independent digital wealth management platform, offering both direct-to-investor and advanced business-to-business solutions. It’s an exciting time, as we are experiencing significant growth and looking to add an ambitious Software Engineer to join our Technology team.

Are you a passionate Software Engineer who thrives in a high-reaching environment, loves a good challenge, and hates leaving problems unsolved?  If you're eager to join an innovative team and want to demonstrate your technical acumen (in particular in JavaScript) and leadership abilities, we want to hear from you!

Our cross-functional pods have built a world-class platform that supports all four of our lines of business and they are tackling new revenue-generating problems every day. Our Software Engineers are able to see the positive impact of their work not only on the company, but on the wealth management industry as a whole.

We are located across the street from Roy Thomson Hall in the heart of the Entertainment District in downtown Toronto.

At Nest Wealth you'll be:

  • Writing maintainable, testable, and performant code.
  • Designing and building out the Nest Wealth platform and REST API using Node, Angular, TypeScript, MySQL, Mongo, and Cloud Services.
  • Keeping up to date with best practices and tooling from the JavaScript community.  
  • Collaborating with your team to tackle problems and learn from failures.

What you'll bring to Nest Wealth:

  • Expert level JavaScript knowledge (ES6 and beyond) coupled with 2+ years of experience in Node.
  • Experience with Mongo and MySQL.
  • A solid understanding of Promises (we use Bluebird and async functions).
  • A real passion for learning and staying up to date with best practices.
  • Experience with enterprise level SDLC and automation.
  • Excellent debugging skills.

It would be great if you had:

  • Experience with AWS.
  • Experience with the open source community.
  • Knowledge and use of D3, Microservice Architecture and Machine Learning.
  • A familiarity with financial and investment terminology and theories.

In addition to joining a phenomenal team, we offer:

  • A competitive salary with customizable extended health benefits and group savings (RRSP) plan.
  • An employee stock option plan. We believe work means more when you have ownership in what we’re building.
  • A yearly education budget for your own professional goals (workshops, courses, conferences, classes, and more).
  • Flexible hours. Our employees have the latitude to take care of the other parts of their lives and be there for the things that matter to them.
  • Weekly catered team lunches, a fully stocked fridge, and healthy snacks and fruits for everyone to enjoy.
  • Company events and other fun team outings.
