We are 


THE tech company to watch in the healthcare industry! The Collaborative Health Team, part of the great TELUS Health family, was founded by practicing physicians and tech futurists. Our team is made up of highly skilled problem solvers who are responsible for improving health care solutions within the primary care ecosystem.


We are a diverse team of over 200 passionate individuals committed to building technology solutions that provide meaningful transformations to how health care workers deliver patient care.

Our focus is to always improve - improve the processes; improve the products; improve our client's experience; and improve yourself.


Our business is connecting Canadians. Our social impact is using our world-leading technology to create meaningful change, give back to help communities thrive, and help those who need it most. As a part of our team, you help make the future friendly.

You are 


  • A leader and mentor
  • A self-starter and a closer. You don’t hesitate to step up and then get it done
  • Not just a coder. You analyze, decompose, design, and plan
  • A collaborator. Good ideas can come from anyone and they evolve through conversation
  • An artisan. Quality matters. Defects and technical debt kills velocity and stymies innovation. You test first. Refactor mercilessly. Write a little code. Repeat

The Role – Better. Faster. Stronger.

  • Speed it up. Our data is getting bigger. Our health teams are getting larger. The information they need to understand is more complex. Use your keen analysis, experience and creativity to increase application performance
  • Crush technical debt. Not all solutions stand the test of time. Identify and refactor anti-patterns and poor/incomplete implementations, before they become a problem
  • Find the fault in our code. Even the best make mistakes. Diagnose and resolve production incidents
  • Add more stuff. The world of healthcare is constantly evolving. Analyze business requirements. Design and build solid solutions


You will


  • Perform full lifecycle software development
  • Design secure and scalable solutions
  • Mentor other developers and provide constructive feedback on their code and designs
  • Work in an Agile development environment with multiple SCRUM teams
  • Write well designed, testable, Java code

  • Solid design skills and a desire to keep current with new and changing technology
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills to accurately articulate problems and solution designs
  • Must be a team player who can work in an Agile team of developers, QAs, and product owners
