Software Engineer


Toronto, ON, CANADA


BDT - Thomson Reuters Canada

Thomson Reuters Finance & Risk is looking to add a Software Engineer to our new World-Check One team at our new Technology Center in Toronto, Ontario. We have recently announced the expansion of our Canadian operations with the creation of a new technology center in downtown Toronto, Ontario. Toronto is home to an emerging ecosystem of world-class technology talent and the new Technology Center will be the preeminent hub of innovation. Our plan is to create around 1,500 technology and operations jobs in the coming few years, starting with an initial tranche of 400 roles at the new Center. 


This challenging position requires someone to think independently, but still work well with others. This is a chance to get in and make an immediate impact. It is an opportunity to work for a great company with smart people on a large and successful system that is used worldwide.

Experience in this area is highly desirable.


The Software Engineer should have the ability to deliver high quality work on time in a high-energy environment while collaborating and brainstorming with other developers in a dynamic team environment.  A combination of strong planning, organization, time management skills, and the ability to handle multiple projects are key.
