Principal Software Developer - SEO

We are looking for an experienced Developer to join our team of seasoned professionals. Within the larger company which spans the globe, our local Ottawa group has earned a reputation for continuously exceeding big goals by using a strong blend of data analysis, product sense and technological horsepower.

In most cases you would work on projects with only a few other people and be responsible for the full technical solution and overall quality of the code, analysis and results. These can be as simple as a single front-end change designed to drive revenue or a multi-month analysis to understand the impact that user reviews have on traffic from Google and then trying to figure out how to leverage that to drive more traffic.

Our team has been together for the better part of a decade and we cover a broad range of subjects within a forward-thinking company that is competing within the compelling travel industry.

We are looking for an entrepreneurial developer who has shown leadership, creativity, curiosity, flexibility and who enjoys the fast-paced nature of the web.

Our group is all about using metrics and code to solve business problems that move the company forward in a meaningful way. If this sounds exciting to you, we'd love to hear from you.
