Senior Front End Developer

Maple

About Maple:

Founded in 2015, Maple is a fast-growing health tech company with a vision to power the future of healthcare by building a connected and superior experience for patients, doctors, and other types of health providers. 

We're the team behind the Virtual Emergency Department at Michael Garron Hospital in Toronto, and the Trillium Health COVID screening program in Ontario’s Peel region. We've partnered with the province of Nova Scotia to support VirtualCareNS, which provides primary care to individuals in under-served regions. We also have a partnership under Maple Maskawâhtik with the Saa Dene group to embed culturally appropriate healthcare protocols to best serve First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples. 

With a growing network of 1,600+ healthcare providers and more than 2 million Canadians with access to our services, Maple is one of Canada’s fastest-growing virtual care companies. 

We have established an entrepreneurial culture centered around our mission to "build a connected healthcare experience." We attribute our success to our employees, who have helped us achieve numerous noteworthy awards including; Globe and Mail's #6 Top Growing Companies in Canada in 2021, Deloitte's Fast 50 Companies to Watch, LinkedIn's Top 10 Startups in Canada, and Bay Street Bull’s The Power 50: Canada’s Most Impactful Companies 2021.

About the Role 

We’re growing our technology team in order to scale multiple business lines and enhance access to healthcare for Canadians. We’re looking for passionate developers who thrive in a fast-paced and dynamic environment, with an open culture and flat hierarchy. 

At Maple, Front End Developers work with both React and React Native to build a unified UX for both patients and providers on our platform. We build out our component libraries using TypeScript, Jest, and Storybook to ensure our components are unified and WCAG accessible at launch. The business logic of our apps is built using test-driven development (React Testing Library) and Redux to ensure we maintain a predictable state – whether the user is in a live chat, a group video call, or simply booking a follow-up appointment with their doctor.

You’ll thrive at Maple if you’re versatile, display strong technical leadership qualities, and are passionate about creating solutions that improve the health care experience for Canadians. 

You’ll develop your technical and leadership skills as Maple scales up its mobile applications to support our mission. You are someone who enjoys thinking creatively, solving challenges, and coming up with fresh ideas to design the world’s leading virtual healthcare platform.
