At SoapBox we’re building a future where it’s easier for businesses to listen to their employees than to ignore them – resulting in an engaged, high performing workforce. We are looking for a passionate and talented individual to join the team and see this vision through. This is a junior-intermediate engineering position based in Toronto, Canada reporting to the Director of Engineering.

You would be responsible for building core features of our Platform.
