Are you looking for a fun career in software development and knowing that your efforts directly impact the success of the business? Do you want to work in small teams where you are part of the design and direction of the projects? Do you want to work with smart people and grow with the group, sharing your knowledge and learning from others? Do you have a passion for writing code and finding solutions to difficult problems?
At Labatt Food Service we consider ourselves a sophisticated software company that sells food, and our track record speaks for itself. We continue to grow every year and succeed against competitors 50 times our size by being innovators and building long term, respectful relationships with our customers, vendors and employees. Though we are smaller than some larger competitors, we are often first to market with new technologies. Many of our new initiatives eventually become standard across the industry, and we have thus established an unrivaled reputation as being a thought-leader in our industry.
Role & Responsibilities
Labatt’s developers create and continuously improve all the systems that run the business. Software and data analytics play a huge part in the success of the company, and therefore software developers have a significant impact on the company. Since the very beginning, Labatt has focused on writing all of its own code, allowing the company to move quickly into new areas and be flexible to customer needs. Our team of software developers design, test, and continually re-engineer the critical systems that keep all aspects of the business running at full steam. Developers work as members of small teams, and employ Agile methodologies to bring about the internal-efficiency and customer-facing innovations that are necessary to keep our lead in the industry. Our philosophy of investing in clean code and developing people from within allows us to build for the long term and leverage the most forward-thinking APIs, languages, and practices, to take on the most intellectually challenging projects that our industry faces.
As a software developer at Labatt, you will take on projects approximately 6 months in length, iterate on a small team of 3-5, test thoroughly, design clean & modular code, experiment, learn, be challenged, and serve the needs of the business. All developers are expected to contribute to the team's success by solving non-trivial problems and sharing lessons learned with the group. Developers are also expected to follow the group's established coding and process best practices as established by the group to ensure quality and consistent code - code that will last for many years. That said, developers have a significant amount of freedom over their projects and the ability to experiment with newer technologies and practices that may help the group overall.

Proficiency in coding and the ability to write clean, functional code is a must, although we train everyone to our particular style and needs.
