About the job
Over the past year we have launched several new products, including our commission-free stock trading platform, and a peer-to-peer cash app. Along with these new products, we’ve also seen our client base grow massively, taking us towards our goal of helping Canadians access financial freedom.
To support this next stage of Wealthsimple’s growth, we are hiring engineering managers across all of our teams (currently focusing on our Trade, Growth, Money Movement, and Invest teams). Engineering management at Wealthsimple provides a unique opportunity to help influence and architect the next stage of our engineering culture, with an emphasis on building diverse, happy, healthy, and high-performing teams.
Our services help millions of Canadians manage billions of dollars across a full suite of financial products, and our ambitious product roadmap provides an opportunity to reimagine financial services in Canada.

  • Adjusts quickly to changing priorities and effectively manages complexity and change
  • Can coach people in their current roles to improve performance and prepare them for future roles
  • Has exceptional communication skills and is able to communicate effectively to both technical and non-technical teams
  • Plans, organizes, schedules, and budgets in an efficient, productive manner
  • Believes that open discussion, inclusivity and transparency result in better products
  • Is eager to teach and learn from your team. We value making each other successful!
  • Is a lifelong learner. You’re constantly seeking and welcoming feedback to continue improving yourself and your craft

  • Familiarity working with front end JavaScript frameworks
  • Knowledge of agile development process
  • Demonstrated experience with microservices and distributed systems at scale
  • Proven track record of delivering well-designed and tested software
  • Solid understanding of relational databases (SQL) and architecture best practices

Our tech stack:

  • We have a service-oriented architecture with over 100+ services
  • These services are a mixture of Ruby on Rails, Java/Kotlin, and front end UI libraries written in React or React Native
  • We host our services on Amazon Web Services and use things like RDS, Aurora, SQS, SNS, S3, Kafka, etc.
  • We have amazing infrastructure & security teams
  • We follow best practices and have great tools for profiling, logging, tracing, tracking, and experimenting
At Wealthsimple, we embrace difference. We believe that getting to the best outcomes requires diverse perspectives and backgrounds. We create a space where all voices can be heard so that we can all do our life’s best work. We’re committed to openness, curiosity and creating an inclusive culture as we know that diverse teams build better products and generate better ideas.
