Senior Full Stack Developer

PicThrive is a software platform that is dedicated to improving the photo & video experience of tourists and tourism businesses everywhere. We are a small, dedicated team that works closely with our customers so we can build solutions that make a real impact. We are committed to continuously improving and bringing that change to all our customers.


TLDR: We build the software platform that enables Skydiving, Whitewater Rafting, Ziplining (etc.) companies to display and sell their photos and videos to their guests. It’s the fun part of tourism :)

As a member of this team, you will get to work with all aspects of our platform. We enjoy the variety and challenge of working on different components. It can be quite refreshing to switch from one focus to another when ready and not be stuck working on one feature forever.

  • Build in all areas of our tech

    • Back-end (GoLang webserver)

    • Smart TV (GoogleTV, FireTV)

    • Android+iOS Apps (Ionic)

    • Multimedia Processing (NodeJS)

  • Improve our video & imaging processing pipelines to deliver better content faster

  • Incorporate emerging AI tech that actually impacts customers

  • Work independently

  • 4+ years experience in software engineering role or similar
  • Passion for innovating and finding a better way. We love constant improvement and fresh ideas
  • Experience with SPA and REST architectures
  • Good understanding of of distributed systems, databases, workload sharing, and associated trade-offs
  • Experience talking to customers and applying Design Thinking or similar principles
  • Local (Kitchener, ON) or Remote (Canada)

    Benefits

    Health Insurance (Dental, Vision, etc).

    HSA for extras like the Gym, Massage, etc.

    Take control of your time. We follow a Results-Only Work Environment, meaning you own your hours of productivity. Feel free to step out on an errand, wake up late, or pick up your kids from school.

    About The Company
    PicThrive Photo & Video Sales platform for adventure tourism

    We are a small team, with less than 10 employees. We are mostly located in Ontario. We are fully bootstrapped.


    PicThrive is a family business like many of its customers. It was started by brothers Keith and Neal Belovay who share a love for travel and anything and everything outdoors. The brothers created PicThrive because they wanted to take their families along on their adventures even when they were thousands of miles apart.


    We worked at the photo desks of adventure tour operators. We camped at ziplines to understand the needs of their guests. We learned from the ground how a zipline can wow their guests with better photo sales and delivery software. We have discovered great mentors along the way from accelerators Travelport and Communitech. Since 2016, PicThrive has grown to serve hundreds of customers across outdoor and adventure businesses. Today, the PicThrive family is spread all over the world.


    PicThrive’s reason for existence is to make photos the best part of the tour experience for staff and guests.
