Why Work For Us

We are changing! We have a new vision for HelloPeter and need the right team to drive us forward.

We have an exciting roadmap, and welcome self-driven people who will help our small team shape this roadmap. Team members have lots of freedom to build the best products possible in what is a very flat structured company. For this reason experienced candidates are needed as opposed to those who prefer more day-to-day guidance or mentoring.

Our Team

Our current dev team is currently made up of a product owner, two developers (one of whom also deals with dev ops), and a front-end developer & UX designer.

Our Ideal Developer

The developer is experienced in using different tools and languages for web applications. Their experience means they are adept at taking on new languages and tools to produce the best product possible, but also fine with using existing setup if that does the job perfectly well. They are aware of the need for regular communication to ensure shared priorities, validation, and quality control.

Our Engineering Processes

We follow a scrum with sprint-driven work and team ceremonies like retros, demos and grooming. Our Git and deployment workflows follow a branch driven approach, with regular code reviews to ensure quality code, and as such quality assurance is owned by the whole team.

As a small team, we are not process or meeting heavy. We are also open to improving and changing any part of our technology stack as long as it can be done without untenable delays to our product roadmap and/or can be shown to improve both the quality and speed of future deployments.

Our Hiring Process

The first step is to complete an online technical assessment. This will be followed by an interview with our backend / dev ops developer (remote in Canada), and our front end developer, before meeting with our product manager and director.
