Wealthsimple is democratizing financial investing to make smart investing easy, accessible, & transparent for everyone. With over $4 Billion in assets under management & over 150,000 clients, we're the market leader in Canada & are fast growing in the US & UK. Our team is working together to build one of the largest & most innovative fintech companies in the world. Join us & change the future of finance. Read our culture manual to learn more about us & how we work.

Engineering @ Wealthsimple
We have a high-performing engineering team that is doing real impactful work. Wealthsimple has several engineering teams ranging from product focused to back office. We practice agile development methodologies with short iterations. We have a micro-service architecture which utilizes continuous integration & deployment. We ship frequently, deploying server side code over 100 times a day & releasing our mobile app on a weekly basis.

Our mobile team is responsible for the Wealthsimple iOS & Android app, for setting best practices & standards for mobile app development at WS & for advocating for a great mobile experience for our clients. This often breaks down into two main focus areas: improving the existing client experience & increasing the likelihood that an interested user will become a Wealthsimple client. Our UI & application logic is predominantly written in Javascript leveraging React Native supported with native code where it makes sense (eg. networking, navigation, platform features). This has allowed us to ship new features & improvements quickly across both platforms, & has enabled other engineering teams to contribute to the mobile codebase with our guidance & support. We make sure to leverage our native expertise in developing features tailored to a specific platform, like our use of biometrics (Touch ID / Face ID, Android fingerprint) for authentication, SceneKit for our iOS funding experience & our cross-platform navigation API.

The Role
Our team is looking for a talented Software Engineer with experience building best in class front end experiences. This role will be responsible for shipping features across both iOS & Android, participating in architectural decisions, maintaining existing code & managing the continuous integration build pipeline. Our mobile apps are built primarily using React Native, so the ideal candidate should have experience building React applications on web or mobile & should be willing to dig in & learn native (iOS & Android) languages/frameworks when necessary.
