Senior Back-End Developer

Foko Retail is looking for a talented Senior Back-End Developer to play a pivotal role in our company’s success.

We’re an Ottawa/Gatineau-based startup with a get sh*t done attitude creating retail task management and communication software.

Why Foko Retail?

We offer competitive compensation, bursaries to attend industry events, weekly in-house yoga classes, a casual office setting (lunchtime Netflix, office dogs, and retrogaming, anyone?), and a lax dress code (jeans and tees encouraged).

For now, because of COVID-19, we’re all working from home. But our team culture is still awesome, and we’ve never been so busy.
