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

As a Senior Technology Architect for the My TELUS team you will help build new features to enhance the overall self-serve experience for our customers in managing their telecommunication services and providing the technical strategy to improve our process.
You will be responsible for engaging multiple stakeholders to determine how our evolving tools and platform enable our teams to deliver intuitive, responsive, and accessible experiences for our customers.
You are a mentor and guiding voice for developers, who can balance day-to-day workload, with an eye for future improvements of your team and their work. You have the ability to build a community of practice, and rally team members towards a technology vision.
You will be working as a part of a friendly, cross-disciplinary agile team who helps each other solve problems across all functions. As a custodian of customer trust, you will employ best practice in development, security, accessibility and design to achieve the highest quality of service for our customers.
We use a range of technologies to get the job done: JavaScript and Babel (ES2020) coupled with Webpack, React, Redux and other libraries to provide a modern, easy to use JavaScript toolchain. A central Design System is used for styling and hosts shared components, while our RESTful APIs are built with Node.js powering our custom services. Quality is a primary concern and we test our applications at multiple levels with automation testers and Product Owners embedded within teams.

Here’s how


  • Ensure cohesive experience across multiple devices
  • Develop scalable solutions with performance and security in mind
  • Have the dedication to learn and research new technologies
  • Work together with others and build solutions collaboratively
  • Create technical documentation on new system or solution designs
  • Review results of technical spikes and proof of concepts at the code level
  • Incorporate accessibility as part of the development process
  • Actively participate in the development of new tools to be used by our Digital teams
  • Work with designers to help them understand possible technical restrictions
  • Identify problem areas in code & solutions by breaking them down into architecture design patterns
  • Engage with the Technology Review Board to represent My TELUS
  • Identify places where automation could bring value to our process
  • Promote a strong governance culture to avoid silos and lower technical debt
  • Develop a keen understanding of our systems and architecture in order to optimize our development and operational overheads





You're the missing piece of the puzzle


  • Experience leading a team of highly-skilled developers
  • Strong team leadership skills and a passion for building a community of practice
  • You also have strong interpersonal, critical thinking, analytical and problem solving skills
  • Proficient with frontend development (ES2018 JavaScript, CSS)
  • Highly experienced knowledge of backend development (Node.js, Redis)
  • Experience building RESTful and GraphQL APIs
  • Expert level knowledge of client-side testing best practices and tooling (we use Jest)
  • Experience building web and mobile applications using web technologies (Reach Native)
  • Highly skilled in React and Redux
  • Familiar with accessibility (WCAG 2) best practices
  • Proven experience designing and documenting APIs (we use Node.js, Express, OpenAPI Spec)
  • Highly demonstrable knowledge in building scalable production services and monitoring performance (we use Kibana, NewRelic)
  • Experience with FRP (functional, reactive programming)
  • Experience with Docker 
  • Experience with Kubernetes (we use OpenShift)




  • Experience with securing applications to common security threats (OWASP Standards)
  • Experience with Web/HTTP security controls (CORS, CSP, TLS, etc ...)
  • Experience designing, building, and maintaining High Availability systems
  • Experience with GCP and/or AWS ecosystems.
  • Experience working with design systems
  • Demonstrated ability to design & build both REST and GraphQL APIs
  • Strong understanding of application level and system level software design patterns
  • You are recognized as a domain expert who is equally comfortable talking financial projections or business process modeling as you are advocating for Agile methodologies
  • Experience with Continuous Integration practices to ensure application reliability
