Join our team


TELUS Health Virtual Care is a rapidly growing division of TELUS Health. We develop and operate a next-generation telemedicine service that lets Canadians access primary care and other healthcare services through an app. With nearly 2 million members across Canada, we're reimagining the doctor-patient relationship, leveraging technology to make Canadian healthcare more accessible, compassionate, and patient-centered.

Here’s the impact you’ll make and what we’ll accomplish together


As our team of 40+ developers and designers scales to support the growing scope and complexity of the healthcare services offered by TELUS Health, we're looking for experienced developers to join our team.


Our existing frontend applications are all developed in TypeScript/React, and many of our backend systems are deployed as TypeScript/Node microservices. 


As a senior full-stack TypeScript dev, you will:


  • Work with a focused team of other talented engineers, designers, and product managers to enhance our existing TypeScript-based frontend and backend applications
  • Develop new systems and enhance our overall architecture
  • Work with engineering and product leadership to identify new opportunities to optimize our existing systems and develop new features and products.


You should be the kind of person who:


  • Loves developing software for its own sake
  • Has learned the hard way when to do things right vs when to do things quickly
  • Thinks deeply and critically about problems, tools, and processes
  • Is passionate about building systems that have a positive social impact
  • Has a decent sense humor (our dev team has a weird obsession with the Simpsons, sandwiches, and questionable emoji)




You should have:


  • 3 years developing in JavaScript and at least a year of that in TypeScript
  • 5 years’ experience building complex, web-based systems
  • Demonstrable experience with React or another framework based on unidirectional data flow
  • Demonstrable experience building microservices in Node.js or Deno
  • A desire to build things for the long-term, with the understanding that the care and attention you put into your work now will pay off later
  • We think big. If you're looking to work on something that matters, TELUS Health Virtual Care might just be the place for you
