Full-time
Formidable is a boutique engineering consultancy and open source software organization, specializing in React.js, React Native, GraphQL, Node.js, and the architecture of large-scale JavaScript applications. We are a team of consultants working together to find holistic and sustainable solutions to challenging software and process problems for our clients. We build products for some of the world’s biggest companies while helping their internal teams develop the skillset to create and maintain thoughtful and scalable systems.

We are looking for a Cloud Infrastructure Engineer to join the Formidable Toronto office. You will help clients build cloud platforms at-scale, assisting in every part of the process, from concept to production. The cloud landscape is continuously evolving, with new tools and services being released daily. You know how to distinguish hype from reality and are comfortable making recommendations that best suit our clients’ needs.

Formidable’s growing platform team has experience with all major cloud providers. You are comfortable leading teams and mentoring engineers in core concepts like high-availability, scalability, and monitoring. You know architecture is more than just drawing boxes, and are excited to dive in and lead by getting your hands dirty. We're a JavaScript-first consultancy and you'll help engineers implement your vision using Node.js on the server.

We make sure our employees get opportunities to grow within Formidable and participate in daily decision-making processes. Our engineers are leaders in the community and frequently speak at key conferences. Working with other Formidables, you are guaranteed to continually cultivate your skill set by staying atop of industry trends and tools.

This role is a Formidable full-time position in Toronto, Canada. It will be a remote work-from-home role to start. The intent is to repeat our Denver and Phoenix successes in Toronto by building a team and setting up a centrally located permanent office. The position is open to residents of Toronto, ON. Sorry, no relocation assistance is available.

If you’re interested in joining a collaborative community that supports employees and understands the importance of maintaining a work-life balance, we would love to talk to you!
