Why LegacyX: We believe LegacyX is not just a place to work but an opportunity to seize a new lifestyle. The last two years have really turned society upside down and many people are questioning the work life they have. As a software development company that was created by a software developer with the desire to create the perfect place for software developers to work, we have always seen ourselves as a great place to be a part of. However, we recognize that we need to continue to evolve as a company to maintain a culture where people love what they do.

We strive for work-life balance. “Crunch Time” is the exception, never the norm. Our office is very deliberately in St. Albert. If you live here, welcome to the 10 minute commute. If you live outside St. Albert, chances are you are driving against the flow traffic both ways.

Although we are a small organization, we offer market competitive compensation, an excellent benefits plan and a great work environment to be a workplace of choice. We have a relaxed work environment full of perks – DIY lattes, kitchen stocked with drinks/snacks, motorized standup desks, Aeron Chairs, top of the line computers, flexible hours and most importantly - brilliant co-workers.

We are in the process of refactoring our office to align to the new reality of flextime workstyles where team members come to collaborate when they need to or want to and not when they are told to. We embrace creativity and innovation within both our research and development and project teams. We provide opportunities for continued growth through mentoring and formal training as a way of life not an event.

We foster an environment of support and progression always striving to realize the "wow" factor in what we do. If you are looking for a new start after what we have all had to go through, check us out, we would love to chat!

Who We Are: LegacyX is a boutique software development company located in St. Albert, Alberta. We have been in existence for over 10 years and have grown to 17 employees with established client contracts that support a strong balance sheet. In the beginning our focus was on rescuing organizations with legacy software. Over the past decade we have evolved to now deliver on business automation projects and creation of SaaS solutions to address the business needs of our growing North American client base. We work very closely with our customers in an agile way, to help them overcome challenges caused by their existing legacy systems and construct new modern solutions to address those challenges. It is not unusual for us to reverse engineer existing proprietary systems while maintaining the current operation to ensure the continuity of their business.

We are on continued growth path, and we are looking for enthusiastic, energized team members that will take on the new challenges our clients present. As a Senior Software Developer, you are passionate about solving problems with code and helping our Scrum teams deliver amazing solutions. Candidates would reside in the greater Edmonton area or be willing to relocate.

At LegacyX, there is always a new challenge - you may assist in reverse engineering closed systems, helping design, develop and deploy a new system for our clients or assisting us to evolve our own proprietary SaaS solutions. We are a dynamic team that tackles a wide variety of challenges for our customers – always looking for innovative solutions to add to our growing portfolio.

The Role

Our dream candidate has had experience in a variety of software development projects including experience with agile software development methodologies. Currently we are doing a lot of work in React with .Net core or node.js back-end code, typically with a SQL Azure or SQL Server database back end. We have projects that leverage the Microsoft WCF and WPF stacks (though these are being evolved). We leverage Microsoft Azure extensively. That said, we expect that you have mastered whatever technology stack or language you have been using and that you will master the tech we currently use. When the time comes for us to change technology you will be able to master that as well.
