Our innovative programs have a lasting impact on the health, financial security and productivity of 24,000 workplaces.

The opportunity

LIfeWorks is on a mission to respond to the emerging trends impacting mental health and total well-being. Mobile devices, remote offices, the immediate and long-lasting effects of the global pandemic, and the need for employees and employers to find rewarding ways to commit to each other are drivers for our next evolution.

Everyone who joins LifeWorks benefits from the professional reward of working in a more agile human-centric framework and the personal reward of knowing the architecture you build, code you write, the product you release, and the service you provide is supporting the mental, physical, social and financial well-being of clients and millions of their employees around the world. We empower our people to make a difference and play a direct role in nurturing and growing our mental health-focused portfolio of globally consistent and locally relevant omnichannel solutions.

LifeWorks is a Canadian-headquartered public company, on a journey to impact 1 billion lives around the world by improving our members’ mental, physical, social and financial wellbeing. We are looking for bright, passionate and motivated developers to join our Enterprise Platforms (EPPS) group to help reach that goal and deliver a positive impact on our members’ lives through technology.

The EPPS group develops and supports key platforms and products within LifeWorks, from our APIs to Machine Learning and Cognitive apps. Our technology is used across the LifeWorks portfolio of apps, and we follow a product-driven agile methodology.
