Senior Software Developer - JavaScript

I’ve never heard of PointClickCare. What do you do?
We’re a cloud-based software provider for the senior care market in North America. But we’re also the industry leaders in terms of growth potential and our expansion into new markets of Senior Care.

Our technology is helping to improve the quality of care for the additional 58 Million Seniors that will reside in North America over the next 16 years.

So what does a Software Developer at PointClickCare do?
You don’t just get stuck in the usual Enterprise Software world here. We work with Sensors, API’s, 3rd parties, mobile apps, hybrid apps, and other cool technologies, and although your key skillset should be JavaScript you will be encouraged to interact and learn other tools, technologies and languages as well. We look for T-shaped skillsets. We operate in an Agile SW Development environment, and we’re continuing to invest heavily in R&D.

What does a typical day look like for a SW Developer?
  • The majority of your day would be spent working with a cross-functional team of developers, business analysts, and quality analysts to specify, design, develop, test, and implement software. They’re all great people to work with. Trust me.
  • You’d also spend some time in the design and development in all tiers of web application. You’re expected to bring the JavaScript and Front-End expertise, but you will be part of the back end design, database, and testing discussions as well
  • Time permitting, debate Star Wars versus Star Trek.
  • Have a look at a video by our Engineering department:

  • Many of our open jobs in Engineering are filled with internal employees. A Senior Engineer will typically progress to Principal Engineer, Architect, Distinguished Engineer or Manager. There are also opportunities to move into other departments depending on your areas of interest.
  • Even if you’re not looking to change jobs, we offer free training on new SW technologies, project management, agile training, leading others, and improving your public speaking / presentation skills to name a few.
What qualifications do you look for?
  • Ideally, we’re looking for someone who gets JavaScript, React that’s for both front end and back end (fullstack Development), good experience with writing JavaScript code is required.
  • A solid knowledge of modern web development paradigms
  • Understanding of CSS, DOM and HTML and how it relates to working with desktop, mobile and/or hybrid applications
