We’re Zuva. We’ve built machine learning software that helps businesses make better decisions by understanding the details of their documents. We’re accelerating this opportunity by making our machine learning available to developers and software vendors, helping them build new and better solutions for their customers.  

Zuva is a unique early-stage company. We’ve been building, refining and selling our technology for 10+ years, and now as a newly formed spin-out company, venturing into the business document intelligence space.  

Our team is primarily based in Toronto, with plans to become a global workforce. From building trusted partnerships with our clients to delivering an employee experience that is second to none, our people are at the center of all that we do. 

Zuva is hiring an experienced Full stack/Backend Developer with experience in using Go to be a key member for one of our cross-functional product teams. You'll be joining a small but nimble team of empowered developers in a supportive environment that values experimentation. We work in small and focused cross-functional teams, usually made up of a Product Manager, Designer(s), and a mix of Frontend and Backend Engineers.

The work is cutting edge, constantly changing and focused on building and operating critical, highly available, low latency, scalable solutions. You will play an active role in introducing new technologies, applying machine learning solutions, and collaborating on technical and architectural decisions. Participate in greenfield projects and enjoy end-to-end ownership from concept to deployment, including building and operating infrastructure, toolset and deployment pipelines. 

Here are a few of the tools and methodologies we utilize:


Infrastructure: Azure, Kubernetes

Ways of working: Pair Programming, 100% remote, DevSecOps 

(Don't worry if you don't have all the experience - we are really looking for capability)

Familiarity with cloud and containerisation technologies, test automation tools and CI/CD pipelines

Interest in owning projects end-to-end and supporting them as they go live in production

Why Join Zuva?

We’ve got a dream team. Zuva is filled with smart, curious, independent, and self-motivated people. Together, we make up a culture that values diversity of thought, creative thinking and fun.

There is room to grow. We work on challenging problems. It’s hard (in a good way) and it gives ample opportunities for growth. We also believe in the power of learning. We provide an annual learning budget to all Zuvans, as well as regular learning sessions hosted by internal and external experts. 

The future is flexible. While we’re all remote right now, we have a number of fully remote team members around the world. Covid-19 has reminded us that our health and well-being come before anything, which means you have flexibility when it comes to designing your work day. It also means that we have a flexible vacation policy that allows you to take time off when you need it. 

We’ve always got your back. Literally. Got a knot in your back? We have a comprehensive health and benefits plan for you and your family, as well as access to Employee Assistance Programs. We’ve also implemented and are continuing with “company shut-down days” that we started since last year. These provide an opportunity for everyone to step back and recharge at the same time.

Proven Technology and Design. Machine learning is driving a new industrial revolution, and we have a product with proven technology and clients who are excited about our product! Moreover, we care about great design and a great customer experience.
