At Vena Solutions, our mission is to help smart companies better manage their data, spreadsheets, and files. Our cloud solution leverages the flexibility and ease of use of widely-used spreadsheets while adding web-based automated workflows and a powerful cloud-hosted database to make mission-critical Finance and Accounting processes simple. Viewed by many as one of the most innovative Canadian startups, we’re part of a growing industry where there are many opportunities for new solutions and product innovation in response to real world business problems.
About the Role
We’re looking for a Full Stack Developer to help us create one of the most sophisticated SaaS cloud technologies for managing business processes. We are seeking innovative, analytical software engineers with an aptitude for big data, machine learning and full-stack development who love to be continually challenged to create scalable and performant software solutions. You will work with our small team of passionate, talented software engineers who love solving hard problems to build highly scalable web services, reporting systems, business workflow software and so much more.
You are a well-rounded programmer, probably with one area of expertise and depth, but a passion for working throughout product stacks and with good global knowledge of how different layers of a software solution work together. You have a passion for new and emerging technologies and you are excited about taking risks when pushing the limits of what is possible. You love to work with and learn from a closely-knit team as you strive to grow and learn your own skill set.
About Our Technology
We are currently using the following technologies in our solution:
- A small but powerful C# .NET Excel add-in that treats spreadsheets as the window to a client’s data, using VSTO, Excel Interop/VBA, and LINQ technologies.
- A RESTful API built from a Java-based DropWizard framework of Jetty, Jersey, Jackson and Google Guice to support both the web client and Excel add-in.
- RabbitMQ, MongoDB, MySQL and a variety of caching technologies are leveraged in the application server to support the demanding data analytics provided by the API.
- A highly available operations platform currently supported by Amazon AWS cloud infrastructure that provides a variety of services including monitoring, scalability and dynamic controls.
Our technology stack is constantly evolving because we help foster a creative environment where there are many opportunities to take ownership and grow Vena’s product ecosystem. We want to build teams of leaders, innovators and people that share a passion for technology and who are interested in leaving their mark on our product in a fast growing business domain.
