Sr Backend Engineer (Python, AR Startup)

Toronto, ON M5J1A7

Employment Type: Permanent Job Category: Python Developer Job Number: 1854

Job Description

We're recruiting a Senior Engineer (Python) for a Toronto-based Augmented Reality startup that has real product, real customers and is set to be an industry leader in this emerging space.



  • Founded in 2013, our client is a core of designers and engineers building the next category- defining enterprise platform situated at the intersection of AR, computer vision, AI, and human computer interaction.

  • AR is widely regarded as the 4th computing platform (i.e., mainframe > desktop > mobile > AR). Our client is a software company (not HW) that is building software that leverages data & the cloud to be ready for the wave of connected devices (incl. AR) that are coming to market. 

  • There are 2.7B workers that don’t sit behind a desk that over time will begin to wear connected devices as part of their job. One guiding principle informs everything our client creates: the full potential of wearable tech is realized only when that technology works in harmony with the people who wear it.

  • Original customers include aerospace manufacturing companies and they’ve since expanded to other manufacturing, healthcare & automotive industries.

  • They’ve built a SaaS enterprise solution that uses AR as a tool currently. Once AR devices are introduced, then it’s an easy switch from current mobile devices & tablets to an AR device. AR will be the next major platform. 

  • The Senior Engineer will lead design, development, implementation and maintenance of applications & back-end services demonstrating service-oriented architecture and secure applications development technology best practices.

  • Tech Stack: Python, Django, React.
