Ledn has built a proprietary technology and operational stack which allows us to deliver world class financial products across the globe.

As an important member of our Engineering team, you'll build intuitive, accessible, reusable UI components that define our user experience with the least amount of clicks possible.

    • Maximize page speed, both for loading and interactions
    • Implement TypeScript throughout the codebase
    • Collaborate with UI/UX designers, engineers, marketing, and other stakeholders to help design and implement new features, simplify the existing codebase, and scale our systems as we rapidly grow and evolve.
    • Implement a more modular architecture to our product suite
    • Collaborate with designers to develop a component library which is used across applications to bring continuity and standardization of design
    • Continuously improve our user experience
    • Use your creativity and provide recommendations on user features or new products

    • Have strong ownership of their work and pride in what they build
    • Work transparently and collaboratively in a true team setting
    • Favour regular, incremental delivery over perfection
    • Strive for continuous learning and improvement for themselves and their teams

It's COVID, where are you working?

We're all working remote until Summer 2021. After that, if and when it's safe to do so, we'll return to a part-time office arrangement in downtown Toronto. We've learned a lot working remotely and are pretty good at it, but also miss connecting and collaborating with our team!
