You shouldn’t also have to be a marketing expert to get customers for it.We want to become the leading reputation marketing platform globally, through creating products that ensure that great work never goes unrecognized, unappreciated or unrewarded.

Since January 2018 (when we were just 2 employees, the Founder leading product and the Director of Growth leading… well… growth), NiceJob has grown to nearly $2 million in annual recurring revenue. We now have 20 staff, have been listed as one of the fastest growing tech companies in BC, and were recognized as a top 2 startup by New Ventures BC. All without any outside funding, purely our own revenue, of which is cash-flow positive.

When you’re offered a seat on a rocket ship, normally you don’t ask what seat, you just get on. But here at NiceJob, we look for incredible talent at every level, hiring people who are looking for careers, not jobs. Innovation is our blood, and we’re redefining what it means to grow and market a business.

Role Requirements

There’s no cookie cutter model of the perfect applicant, so anyone can apply.

As long as you think you have either the necessary skills, or the ability to learn them very quickly to do this role, you’re good. We care about your ability to execute, not your experience – though it certainly can be an indicator, especially your past projects. There are some requirements however.

That said, if this role is local, you must be legally allowed to work in Canada, with the intent of staying local for the long term.

The ideal candidate is probably someone who…:

  • Is looking for a company to grow with, who plans to stick around for the long term in Vancouver (and reap all the benefits that entails)
  • Could be described as intuitive, data-driven, creative, professional, strategic & smart, friendly, independent, thoughtful
  • Is someone who loves to write code and wants to create the next generation of socially impactful software
  • Has a strong written and verbal communication skills, and emotional intelligence
  • Is as excited and passionate about the products we’re making as we are
  • Has a willingness and ability to learn quickly, and hit the ground sprinting from day one
  • Has a Bachelor’s degree or greater (or other education/proof of knowledge) in a related/relevant field
  • Would rather write code than manage developers
  • Is willing to take risks, but is not reckless, and thinks before they act.

Required experience…:

  • Full-stack development
  • Pushing to code production
  • Any cloud platform experience (AWS, GCP, Azure)
  • React
  • Node.js (or a lot of experience in a similar language like Python or GoLang )

Proof of completed projects using the above skills will be required.

Other experience we’d love to see…:

  • Google Cloud
  • GraphQL
  • React Native
  • Machine learning
  • Event-driven architecture
  • Micro-services

Training and Your First Month

We may be a startup, but we’re not just going to throw you into the deep end and expect you to swim. We’ll give you floaties too. 😉

Jokes aside, here’s what’s in store for you:

  1. Pre-start date: You’ll go over some material about the company and our product, which we’ll discuss once you start.
  2. First week: You’ll spend your time learning the product, our industry, and, depending on your role, talking with customers to learn what makes them tick. You’ll use this info to help formulate a plan moving forward in week 2.
  3. Second week: You’ll begin any occupational skills training we have for you. We’ll run you through our existing systems, processes, what’s worked so far and what hasn’t, and your team leader will work with you to develop a plan moving forward.
  4. Third week: You’ll be starting to work on executing on easy wins to test the waters and put your plan in place. You’ll be mostly independent by this point.
  5. Fourth week and beyond: You’ll put your plan into place, and we’ll see what happens! You’ll be given the autonomy to make decisions, but will be held accountable to the results as well.

You Can Interview Immediately
