Who we are looking for

Geotab is always looking for talented Software Developers across our Oakville, Toronto and Waterloo locations.

These products include MyGeotab, our web-based fleet management software, the GO device, our embedded telematics device, our Mobile apps, as well as many internal systems that are vital to business operations.

We are constantly looking for developers with Front End, Back End, Full Stack, Mobile or Embedded Development experience to join our Software Development efforts. You may write high performance C, C#, Java, Rust or Python code and SQL queries to process and store this information in real-time. Our framework is .Net Core on Windows and Linux, so you will use the latest and greatest tooling and technologies, across platforms. You will write JavaScript and TypeScript code using Angular and React Frameworks to create fast and responsive user interfaces. You will develop mobile applications and SDKs using Kotlin (Android) and Swift (iOS). You will automate tasks using Powershell, Bash, and Python. You will write low-level embedded software using C and Rust. Using Google BigQuery you will develop tools for analysis, to help measure the impact of clean code, threading and good UI design, the scalability of our systems or how well the embedded device is performing in the field. If you are a candidate who finds reward in building robust software that can function 24/7 with no downtime, this is the ideal role for you.
