We are hiring software engineers to help us improve our online marketplaces: CanadianNanny.ca, Sitter.com, Housekeeper.com, PetSitter.com, ElderCare.com, and HouseSitter.com.
We need to iterate faster on our core features, and to add new things. Just as importantly, we run several unique automated marketing systems (which have powered our outstanding growth) and have big plans for where to take them.
We follow modern software development practices, including TDD, CI, and rigorous code reviews. We are very analytics driven and continuously run a/b tests to inform our product design.
Our current stack is Ruby, Rails, Haml, Sass, React, MySQL, Solr, Redis, NodeJS, and AWS. We built a mobile app using React Native. What would you add or change?

We are a fast-growing company with unprecedented investor support. We have the most robust seed investor group in Canadian history with more than 60 angel investors and venture capital funds behind us, including a number of female funders such as Heather Payne and Katherine Hague. We even have $1M from Canada?s largest bank.
An interesting thing about CareGuide: as a tech startup, we employ more women than men, and have a high degree of ethnic and religious diversity. We also have employees in their teens, 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s. We hire the best and build careers. We are an equal opportunity employer.
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 a fulsome maternal/paternal leave policy for new mommies and daddies.
CareGuide is a family of online services to help families connect with care providers. Finding the right care provider shouldn't be as hard as it is today.
