This is where you step in and apply your database development skills and software development prowess, to a wide range of retail and supply chain systems. Does that sound like something interesting for you?


In this Database Developer position, you will work closely with a team of software developers in a conveniently located Burnaby office. They need someone like you, who can bring handle their various data sources coming from their point-of-sales systems, inventory systems and financial systems (to name a few!)


In this full-time position, you'll earn a competitive base salary, an RSP matching program, and extended health and dental benefits.


You will have the chance to make a big impact on a long-standing, traditional company. The executives have the willingness and desire to modernize their systems and processes, and now they need your experience and ideas at the table to move the agenda forward. You can think of this as your chance to drive a 'digital transformation' within a well-established, well-funded company.


The list of projects is long, and you will have plenty to tackle. The projects touch all facets of the technology organization, including business software applications, IT infrastructure, and support staff. The company is generally a Microsoft-centric shop, including their ERP software (Microsoft Dynamics AX) and their database technology (mainly Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Azure SQL)
