Right now, we have a rare opportunity for a Junior Developer to join CBC for a one-year contract starting in February. This is an exciting opportunity for a Developer who is eager to innovate, quick to learn, and wants to expand their skills with hands-on work. A chance to be part of a team that is responsive to the needs of our audience and releases frequently, with continuous delivery, using metrics, running audience-facing experiments, including A/B testing.

If you're passionate about Canada and you love technology, learning, and bringing out the best in others, you'll love working at CBC.
