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


You are an experienced, hands-on lead full stack developer, who has led teams in shipping large-scale applications. 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.

 

As a Tech Lead with TELUS Digital, you will be collaborating with internal and external project teams to design, build and operate the software applications which enable innovative, data-driven, customer centric digital experiences for TELUS customers.

 

You will be working as part of a friendly, cross-discipline 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 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:

 

  • Lead the technical team to execute on the product owner’s roadmap
  • Leading the mentorship and upskilling of more junior developers and being responsible for the delegation of mentorship within the team
  • Maintain applications and ensure they are up to date and secure
  • Guide and implement Squad’s architectural “direction” within the portfolio
  • Write code and understand the ins and outs of the application
  • Point of contact for other teams to ensure integration is smooth in the commerce flow
  • Technical interviews and assessments of candidates applying for roles
  • Advise on technical feasibility, review visual design and work through technical implications with designers
  • Facilitating pair programming and developer day to day support
  • Coordinate and facilitate professional developer meetings across the tribe - coding exercises, jam sessions and playing with new technology
  • Support ad hoc technical delivery of the team
  • Advocating and reinforce code by adhering to accessibility and performance standards
  • Uphold standards of coding & standard methodologies
