At Loblaw Digital, we know that our customers expect the best from us. Whether that means building the best, most innovative online shopping experience, or designing an app that will impact the lives of people across the country, we’re up for the challenge. From our office in Downtown Toronto, we’ve created leading eCommerce experiences in the online grocery shopping, beauty, pharmacy, and apparel spaces, and we’re only just getting started.
Our team creates the software powering the latest business offering from Loblaw Digital, an online Marketplace shopping experience. Everyday we live and breathe our core value of placing the "Customer at the Centre". A successful day for us is one where we can go home knowing we made a positive difference in the lives of Canadians, because we genuinely care about the people that use our platform. Building software is great, but building software that impacts lives is that much more rewarding.
To be part of our group is to always be looking for the best way to do something for our customers. As a new business, we diligently adhere to the Build, Measure, Learn feedback loop. We build things to see how they perform in the real world, measure that performance, and use the results to test our assumptions and hypothesis. Sometimes that may mean a great idea or piece of code has to go away, but that is a small price to pay to ensure we are building the right things for Canadians to solve their needs.
What You'll Do
You will be a relentless voice for the customer in delivering quality user interfaces and platforms that are both performant and accessible. Every day, you will push our team to improve our software standards and best practices, settling for nothing less than excellence. Using your exceptional experience, you will deliver high quality software and features that make everyday Canadians lives easier.
Working in agile scrum teams, you will work collaboratively with designers, content creators, developers, data analysts, product owners, SEOs, performance gurus, and other subject matter experts to challenge the status quo and improve the lives of Canadians, one deployment after the other.
Your colleagues will share a lot of these responsibilities and philosophies with you. However, not everyone will be at your level and some of your colleagues may just be starting their engineering journey. Each day you will find teachable moments using your background and experience to help our engineers become their best selves.

The ability to pick up technology quickly. We don't say "I'm not familiar with that technology," without adding, "but let me read up on it, and I'll get back to you on it."
Communication skills are paramount. Documenting once is not enough; being able to explain something in 5 different ways is key.
You enjoy taking ownership of your work in an environment where leadership is a shared responsibility.
A degree in computer science or computer engineering would help. Complex problems require complex solutions, and formal training in computer science allows us to have a common basis and language in tackling these problems.
