Our disruptive pricing model and automated approval workflows empower IT companies to turn every customer touchpoint into a sales opportunity. Our customers report significant improvement to their bottom line with more quotes being created with better margins in less time.

We’re looking for brilliant and highly motivated people to join our rapidly growing team. This is a ground-floor opportunity for the right individual to join our tightly-knit crew and have a direct impact on the future of our partners and organization.

We understand that our success as an organization is equal to the sum of its individual parts – the people behind it. We are committed to providing an environment that you will thrive in. One that is challenging; one that is supportive toward your personal and professional goals; one that is transparent and collaborative; and one that recognizes and rewards hard work. Our core values are the cornerstone of who we are:

  • Hunger – Think big
  • Agility – Start small
  • Transparency – Transparency promotes trust, accountability, and responsibility
  • Continuous Improvement – Encourage continuous, incremental improvement of our product, process, and people
  • Empathy – Approach every situation with kindness and respect
  • Humility – Crave feedback. Be open-minded. Celebrate failure
  • Collaboration – Work together as a team. Support each other
  • Positivity – Create an environment that is positive and fun. Stop negative behaviour
  • Equal Opportunity – All people are created equal in their potential to achieve greatness

We’re well-funded and have an amazing team experienced in growing and scaling modern SaaS companies.

We have a beautiful office in downtown Vancouver, but are remote flexible. Most of our team is located in Vancouver, which is ideal, but we are looking for the right person for the job regardless of location.

The Opportunity

Beyond the obligatory perks you’d expect to find at any burgeoning tech startup (see below), the following is what you can expect life at Quoter will be like:

As a key member of our foundational engineering team of eight, you will be architecting, estimating, developing, and testing new features and improvements using an agile development approach. You will be working directly with the founders of the company, who are experienced developers with a proven track record in SaaS.

You will be working on greenfield Go microservices that will build on, and over time, replace, our monolithic CakePHP app. You’ll be working with bleeding edge technology including Go, Docker, Kubernetes, RabbitMQ, Terraform, Github, and AWS.

Clean code, collaboration, iterative development, rapid releases, and continuous improvement form the culture of our engineering team. We prioritize team velocity over individual performance. We work closely together and love sharing knowledge to elevate the collective skill level of our team. We lead with trust, transparency, and autonomy and focus on results.

Our development process involves two-week sprints, with epics being split up as granular as possible to parallelize work. We build and ship one core feature at a time, as we believe juggling too many things creates bottlenecks and ultimately slows us down. No individual developer owns any one part of the app – anyone can pick up any task. Collaboration, pair-programming, and peer review allow us to ship faster while maintaining code quality and reliability. And we’re constantly optimizing how we work in order to be as efficient as possible.
