We’re looking for someone who can change the paradigm for Canadian youth living in poverty. Someone who enjoys building partnerships, making an impact, and working with energetic, high-performing teams. Is that you?

Pathways to Education is a national, charitable organization breaking the cycle of poverty through education. Its award-winning program is creating positive social change by supporting youth living in low-income communities to overcome barriers to education, graduate from high school, and build the foundation for a successful future. Through the collective power of partnerships, Pathways to Education’s innovative program is preparing youth for tomorrow.

You will also help with DevOps and application support.

  • Strong knowledge of important programming and computer science concepts.
  • Experience programming in one or more of the major programming languages.
  • Proactive personality with a passion to deliver your best work.
  • Excellent communication skills to collaborate efficiently with all members of the Technology team.

  • Experience developing cloud services and APIs.
