Toronto /
Technology Team /
Full Time
Coinsquare's Product & Engineering team is looking to add a highly skilled software developer to our Exchange Product Team.

We are looking for an experienced software developer to help drive implementation and delivery of solutions to challenging technical problems. You wake up in the morning desiring to make an impact. You are passionate about your craft and enjoy collaborating and helping others. You are known as someone who is reliable, resourceful and a creative problem solver who has a strong track record of delivery. You are an advocate for building sustainable, secure and scalable software.

The Exchange Product Team is responsible for Coinsquare’s digital currency exchange offering, targeted for our retail and wealth customers in the Canadian market. This team’s mission is to provide access to crypto currency investment opportunities to Canadians while offering a delightful experience.

If you are passionate about your craft then we encourage you to reach out. We value your personal insight and ideas as much as your technical skills. In no particular order, some of the things we look for most in candidates are: a desire to collaborate on complex problems, a willingness and interest in learning from anyone (aka a "growth mindset"), a sense of humbleness, and an appreciation of puns.
