Button is hiring a Technical Lead

Button Inc. was born out of its founders’ desire to take complex tasks and ideas, and deliver them in a simple, fun, and usable way. That’s always been the guiding force behind the projects we’ve built. We built socks that can detect real-time emotional stress. We took a NASA study on plants that can clean the air and made the world’s first indoor plant-based air purifier, and we are helping the Government of BC track and reduce industrial greenhouse gas emissions.

Our team is looking for a Technical Lead who thrives on problem solving, and loves to build bridges between a small, high performing start-up team and the technical architecture needs of enterprise clients. We care deeply about projects that help combat climate change, build strong partnerships, and have deep social impact. Not all superheroes wear capes (although if you wish to wear one to work, that’s totally fine too!)

The Technical Lead is responsible for code, decision-making and stakeholder management related to DevOps, security engineering and technical architecture. You’ll play an integral role in applying policy frameworks relating to security and privacy to ensure the product deliverable meets requirements for building scalable web systems application in a continuous deployment environment.

The ideal candidate for this role will be adept at making strong project management and engineering decisions that empower the rest of the developer team to build an accessible, clean and interactive user experience. In this role, you’ll be working as part of an Agile team in a creative work-space where multi-disciplinary teams of public servants and private sector consultants can learn, and in turn implement, new ways of working using technology as an enabler.

We really value people learning new skills on the job, but here are some of our preferred skills:

· OpenShift

· Kubernetes

· Docker

· Jenkins

· Technical Architecture

· DevOps

· Security engineering

· Javascript

· NodeJS

· API development

· PostgreSQL or Oracle

· .Net

This is a full-time role, situated in Victoria BC.
