SpaceList is Canada's leading marketplace for office, retail, and industrial space for lease and for sale. Hosting over 800 million square feet of available space and generating over 150 inquiries each day, we make it easy, transparent, and fun to search for space! Businesses and brokers are given complete, rich, and accurate information to help them discover incredible spaces and make smart decisions about where to locate.

SpaceList is looking for a passionate Software Engineer to join our small (but mighty) team. We’re a group of dedicated, hard-working people developing the best commercial real estate platform available today. We’re looking for someone with serious Ruby on Rails chops and has worked on projects using AngularJS or another jQuery-based framework. You’re interested in contributing a unique vision to the team, but also appreciate kicking back and talking shop on a Friday afternoon, beer in hand.

As a Software Engineer, a typical day involves building solutions to solve our customer’s problems like tweaking a style using LESS, improving page interactions in our Angular application, increasing the performance of our web API, and answering a data question with a complex query.

Sound like you? Awesome. We can’t wait to hear from you!
