      Position(s): Backend Developer, Frontend Developer, Information Security Specialist, Salesforce Developer, Technical Writer

      Location: Montreal, Ghent, Amsterdam, Toronto


      Lightspeed is a point of sale SaaS provider. We have products for retail, restaurant, eCommerce, payments, loyalty and recently golf. We use a fair amount of different tech depending on the team you’re on. We have technical debt, but we actively work to combat it. We have developer openings in Montreal, Amsterdam, and Ghent at the moment, but we’re often open to the right candidate even if there isn’t a posting that exactly fits you. We’ve got plenty of challenges and ambitious goals. Our dev managers are former developers, and we do our best to make sure the techincal aspects of the product are prioritized as well as the business aspects.

      Some of our stack: MySQL, PHP, Java, Go, Python (primarily for test automation), React, Node, GraphQL, REST.

      We’re on AWS and GCP (migrating to GCP). We use lots of fancy cloud technology: k8s, terraform, helm, docker, etc.

      Check out our current openings here: https://www.lightspeedhq.com/careers/overview/all/ and feel free to apply online, or reach out to me directly.

      This is my second time working at LS, I left and then came back, and it’s overall a pretty great place to work.

          We’re looking for an experienced (senior-level) Python dev (Flask experience a big plus) to work on our front-end middle-end code. Good SQL experience is likewise a big plus. As we’re migrating some old PHP code, it would be nice if you had some experience with that too.

          Austin, TX, USA is preferred but I believe (don’t quote me on it) that remote work is possible. US citizenship is required.

          PM me for more information.

          1. 3

            In my day we called it middleware.

            1. 1

              Python dev with Flask and SQL experience for front-end code? Are you sure that’s correct?

              1. 1

                “Front end” in this case being “API that talks to our engine on one side and the JavaScript UI on the other.” “Middle-end” sounded weird. The API itself is also going to be directly consumable by customers as well.

                1. 1

                  Friendly advice: the kids will be very confused if you call this front-end. (I didn’t really know this use of “front-end” until pretty recently).

                  I think language has shifted here. What you’re describing is just a backend web developer.

                  1. 4

                    Ugh, kids these days with their long hair and their rock music and their perfectly reasonable evolution of terminology…..I’ve updated the comment, thank you. :)

                  2. 1

                    Yeah, that’s middleware. Tons of it in enterprise space.

                    1. 1

                      Middle-end is what I’ve called it at other jobs. :)

                    Company: Enthought

                    Company site: https://www.enthought.com/careers/


                    • Software Developer: Scientific Applications
                    • Scientific Software Developer/Python Trainer
                    • Technical Lead: Life Sciences

                    • Full Stack Developer
                    • Front End Developer
                    • Manager Marketing Communications

                    Location: Austin, Houston, Cambridge, Tokyo

                    Description: If you are passionate about scientific and analytic computing, dedicated to quality, and pragmatic about problem solving, we’d love to hear from you. While domain expertise and strong technical skills are almost always required, we weigh “really smart,” “highly productive,” and “dedicated to developing quality products” more heavily than any specific skill set or degree.

                    Ideal software developer candidates often have a strong background in scientific fields, but also find themselves gravitating to the software development and design aspects of their work. Read more about the developer profile we think fits best at Enthought.

                      If you are interested in using your skills to have a positive impact on people’s lives, Outschool is hiring senior software engineers.

                      I would be happy to answer your questions.

                        Company: ddm marketing & communications

                        Positions: Frontend Designer / Developer, Backend Developer

                        Location: Grand Rapids. MI


                        On the frontend position, we’re really focused on design - there’s always some architecture and wire framing that goes in, but our real need at this time is design. The majority of the work will be (as in our name) marketing and communications websites.

                        Frontend at ddm is a position designed to be well supported by backend - backend steps in to assist with integration, build process and pipeline, and javascript. If you’re not totally up-to-speed on the latest in the JS world, that won’t be a big deal. But if you are: fantastic, all the better!

                        Our backend is primarily PHP. We currently have an in-house CMS, but the tides are turning toward other solutions (but not toward Wordpress). Familiarity with Laravel in backend devs is a big bonus as that’s gaining a foothold and will be a part of our future direction.

                        Backend devs are often on larger sales integration and tooling projects; tools used internally by companies in healthcare, finance, and education. We do boring stuff like SAP integration and fun stuff like AR tools and toys.

                        Big, big plus if you’ve also done mobile app development in iOS and/or Android.

                        We are a client service company focused on effective solutions. We pay competitively and have a profit-sharing bonus program that includes all employees with over a year of tenure. As well as a rewards program for working out that can earn you extra paid time off or extra cash.

                        If any of that sounds interesting, PM me with questions.
