Successful businesses understand their customers and their competitors. As a market research consulting firm,
Advanis helps its business clients to gain this understanding. We provide consultation services to some of the most
successful and forward-thinking corporations in the world, as well as to all levels of government (from federal to
municipal in Canada).

To ensure that our market research team delivers reliable, timely, and actionable information to our business and
government clients, Advanis develops and continuously improves its own suite of state-of-the-art marketing and
analyses software tools. This in-house software expertise has proven to be a core competency of our organization.
Advanis’ team of expert programmers pride themselves on using Test Driven Development (TDD) and follows the
practices described by Robert Martin in his book entitled Clean Code.

We are excited to have a full-time opening for the position of Junior Programmer.

We are seeking candidates who are extremely intelligent, love to be fully focused on problem solving, are intrigued
by wading into “uncharted waters” because they are confident in their ability to learn quickly, and who aspire to
be highly revered amongst their professional programming peers. Such candidates should also possess the

following technical qualifications:
  • A university degree or a diploma in an applied field;
  • Familiarity with the following: JavaScript, HTML, CSS, Python, and SQL;
  • Familiarity with database design; and
  • Familiarity with Unix.
Successful candidates will have a passion for computing science. Candidates who do not have a strong desire to
improve their programming skills need not apply. Junior Programmers will receive internal training – frequent code
reviews by Senior Programmers, iterative quality of code feedback and direction for improvement, problem-
solving meeting participation, and self-directed or classroom courses as required.

Successful candidates will enjoy a competitive remuneration package including a salary along with dental and
extended health care coverage. Our work environment is fast-paced, challenging, and continuously learning-
orientated. Interested applicants should forward their resumes, quoting the competition number, to:
