JS Full Stack Software Developer 1

Date: Aug 22, 2019

Location: Mississauga, ON, CA

Company: Hatch

Requisition ID: 21761 

Job Category: Information Technology 


With over six decades of business and technical experience in the mining, energy, and infrastructure sectors, we understand that challenges are changing rapidly in every industry. We respond quickly with solutions that are smarter, more efficient, and innovative. We draw upon our 9,000 staff with experience in over 150 countries to challenge the status quo and create positive change for our clients, our employees, and the communities we serve.




Are you a serverless-loving, arrow-function wielding, API-taming, cloud-native full-stack ES6 developer looking for the challenge of a lifetime? 

Hatch Digital is a new division of Hatch Ltd which is a Global EPCM (Engineering, Procurement & Construction Management) organization. Hatch Digital works with the world’s largest industrial companies, helping them transform their businesses using the latest digital technologies. By that we mean projects like: autonomous 45,000 Kg mining haul trucks, drone photogrammetry-based stockpile level analysis, monitoring a half a billion dollar platinum furnace from anywhere on the planet, or using predictive machine learning algorithms to determine the remaining useful life of kilometers of pipes carrying corrosive chemicals.

We are developing a series of PaaS and SaaS products that are already showing the potential to disrupt long-standing industrial players while providing amazing value to our clients. We are in the early stages, but over the next 3 years we intend to develop a significant portfolio of digital products based on a common (and ever-evolving) platform of cloud-based PaaS components, custom code and standardized design patterns. We are looking for hard-working, talented individuals at almost any stage of their career who are eager to learn and try new technologies. 

We are looking for full stack ES6 masters (and experienced apprentices) that can work in self-organizing Agile teams to rapidly prototype MVP functionality with our subject matter experts. As a full-stack developer, you are as comfortable building front end data components (Angular services or React components) as the back-end API functions that support them. We make heavy use of serverless tools and public cloud resources and we place a heavy emphasis on using our CI/CD pipeline to productionize testing, deployment and automated orchestration of resources. You know, DevOps. You should be familiar with these and other areas in a modern software development lifecycle.

Due to the nature of the work and the rapidly evolving platform it is being built upon, we are looking for practical coders, not fanatics or zealots. Do you agree with the following statements? “Features are an asset, code is a liability”, “Done is better than perfect” & “The value of code is inversely proportional to the time it takes to understand it.” If so, we want to talk to you and see your code!  

Are you looking for a change? Are you tired of working on projects and features that have little or no impact on the real world? Does the idea of building Industrial IoT data ingestion and processing pipelines for telemetry from factories, mine sites, solar/wind farms and smart cities excite you? Are you undaunted by the prospect of helping our clients overcome years or decades of technical debt? Do you want to make the world a better place by helping our clients maximize the efficiency of their resource and energy consumption while reducing their environmental impact?

Come join us! At Hatch you will work in a team setting around the globe and be based in Mississauga, Ontario. We are in search of a task oriented, self-starter who is confident and has exceptional communication skills. You are also a person that can work around flexible working hours as we are bound working with people in various time zones.
