    Ask Us Anything

    You can expect to work closely with your team in a fullstack, CSS-to-Database, Agile environment that includes consistent use of AWS.

    We are a social bunch, but when it’s time to work, you’ll need to be a head-down code warrior and get the job done. In Software Development, we work with your lifestyle, not a 9-5 punch clock.

    ​Nope. We need anyone who can make a difference or shares our passion.
    Absolutely. Many team members are Red River College BIT and University Of Manitoba Computer Science graduates. We also work with various post-secondary institutions in their co-op programs to hire students – many of whom have transitioned into full-time employees.
    Our diverse projects will allow you to grow from a support role, or junior developer to a senior developer and team lead. Because we retail some products to third-party customers, there is constant growth and opportunity in the Innovations department at Birchwood.

    • PHP
    • C#
    • AWS Tools & SDKs
