Senior Full Stack Developer (Back End)

As we are growing our Customer Journey teams, we are looking to add Back-End developers to the RBC Omni team. We design, build and operate the services we own and we give our journey development teams all the autonomy they need to move fast and innovate.

The development teams deliver services and user experiences to both internal and to external partners, built on a modern hybrid cloud platform using latest micro-services architecture.

Everything is cool when you're part of an awesome team. As an engineer, you will work as part of a small, autonomous team to deliver services and experiences for use in both internal and external applications.

We are looking for top notch software engineers who are great team players and obsessive about the quality of their code and delivered service.

We give our engineers the freedom to innovate in software design, development processes and automation so that they can deliver the very best result for our customers and continuously optimize the performance of their team.

Our teams design, develop, test and support their services so you’ll have the opportunity to be part of every stage of the process and take pride in delivering great new services with excellent reliability.

We expect our engineers to take on significant personal responsibility for delivery but we do it in a fun team-oriented environment.

As an engineer focused on banking services, you will be part of an exciting journey to change how we deliver our services to customers and how we integrate with business partners.

Customers are looking for richer, more personal and lower cost services every day and you will play a key role in delivering on those expectations.

More than anything else, we’re looking for people who want to be part of an elite engineering team and have the opportunity to learn and grow.

RBC believes in building diverse teams. We actively try to bring together people with a wide variety of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives.

We encourage collaboration with internal partners and team members to achieve a collective result. We want our team members to think big and simplify things that are complicated.

Our engineering culture is built on continuous learning and supported by transparency, trust and cooperation. We have a great mix of senior and junior engineers which gives everyone a chance through teamwork and mentorship to build their knowledge and experience.
