At Altus, we believe that great students are more than just book smart. We develop and deliver a platform for assessing professionalism for today’s top academic programs.
At Altus Assessments, we work in partnership with post-secondary academic institutions to help get people with the empathy, resiliency and communication skills into the programs that grow our future medical professionals and teachers in Canada, the US and as far away as Australia. We uncover humanity through psychometric evaluations and tests consisting of situational, open-ended questions that don’t have a right or wrong answer. Using our rigorous, well-researched and tested assessments combined with data-driven insights, we help determine what the chances of them successfully completing a program is, as well as how professional they will be.
If you are passionate about building tools that measure people and their human responses rather than marketing algorithms and hashtags, this is the place to be.
Who we need
We’re looking for a Senior Fullstack Developer to bring a level of depth, a willingness to mentor and an ability to inspire to our team; someone with technical expertise, dedication to curiosity, continuously learning and a desire to make a positive impact on society. We need a Fullstack Developer with hustle who has some serious coding skills but is also abundantly humble, can be wrong and wants to seek out the best solution, whatever the source. We want a Fullstack Developer who can step up and step in to help bring our team and our apps to the next level; someone who can proactively optimize our infrastructure and reactively put out the fires. This is an exciting opportunity for someone who enjoys taking the reins and getting the work done; a Fullstack Developer who has opinions, technical knowledge and best practices they want to share.
Our Technical Team
We’re a tight-knit team that’s very supportive of one another. We know there’s always room for improvement, so we’re open to, and encourage each other to share our ideas with the team. We’re not afraid to experiment or make mistakes, as we recognize this is a necessary part of innovating. Transparency is at the core of what we do, so we are honest and upfront about where we win and lose. We’re continuous learners who are eager to share our technical expertise with one another and try to grow our skillset, not ego, every day.

Our leadership team is all about building out your career, helping you get where you want to go and implementing your bright ideas.
Along with full benefits, enhanced parental leave and self-directed vacation, we provide you with a budget for learning.
