At the beginning of 2019, we set up shop in Montreal and with an increasing number of clients, we are now looking for a passionate, experienced, and talented Lead Developer to spearhead our development team in Canada.

At Signifly, we combine the power of strategy, design, and technology to help ambitious North American companies seize digital potential and scale business. As our Canadian tech lead, you will be an essential part of developing new digital concepts together with our clients.

Your daily tasks will include:

- Collaborate with our CTO and Tech Lead from our headquarter in Denmark.

- Consulting our clients on technical solutions.

- Estimate the costs of building new digital concepts and consult the sales team in the proposal phase.

- Code smaller and bigger projects – after all, you are a developer and you love to code and lead by example.

Our new Lead Developer is (Tech Stack and Process):

You are seasoned in Vue.js (or React/Angular and ready to switch track - or convince us that we should switch...), and have experience with back-end PHP (Laravel) development. You are an entrepreneurial and creative soul. You also deeply appreciate design like it should always be (functional, relevant and carefully crafted). We are an agency, meaning that we work with a range of clients, typically in focused sprints where we build new products for them or make improvements on products that we previously built with them (NO development on stuff that we did not build ourselves!). We have an excellent team across our Copenhagen and Montreal offices, and we look forward to welcoming you, throw challenges at you, teach you new stuff, get stuff taught from you and make sure that we grow together and deliver on our ambition to set new and higher standards.

Signifly Canada

We recently opened our office in Montreal. We are a small but strong team of strategists, designers and developer. We work with both North American and European business - and we are not alone! We work closely with our team in Copenhagen! Signifly is ONE company, so whether you work on Canadian, Danish or global projects, you can expect to be working with team members from either Canada, Denmark, Norway, Brazil, Hong Kong... You get the point :-)!

Please expect from us

The most important thing that we offer, is an inspiring and ambitious work environment, with emphasis on learning and developing, both personally and as a team. We have an informal organisation with minimal hierarchy, where there is plenty of room for being ambitious within your own area of expertise, as well as taking part in shaping our team, culture and product offering.

But of course we can also tempt you with:

  • Yearly one-week team trip with both social and professional focus (last year was in Spain). 
  • Coffee, tea, soft drinks, snacks, ColdBrew, etc. day and night
  • Paid equipment of high quality - you choose what you prefer (we prefer Mac)
  • Beautiful office space with emphasis noise reduction, centrally located in Montreal

And if you think something is missing, just let us know. We can probably work together to add it. After all we are trying to create the best possible place to work!
