Who's hiring in Toronto? Nascent Digital, Heritage Toronto, Artscape and more

Some of the more interesting employment opportunities we've spotted this week include:

For the technically inclined, Nascent Digital, a local software design and development house on Adelaide Street, is attempting to fill multiple positions. They're hiring a front end developer, a full stack developer, a QA analyst, a QA lead, a support engineer and an UX designer.

All told, the firm seems like a great place to work; they've worked on some compelling projects in the past—they helped Tumblr create a unique Windows Phone version of the company's mobile app, for example—and they have a diverse and talented team already in place. Each position has slightly different requirements, though the common theme here is that they're seeking candidates with about three to five years of experience in a related field.

Heritage Toronto is seeking an executive director. The person that takes on this role will become the organization's de-facto CEO, responsible for leading it in its planning, fundraising and outreach initiatives. The group hasn't listed overly detailed requirements, though one imagines they're looking for an organizational maven. It should also go without saying, but only those with a strong passion and love for this great city should apply.

For those not ready to take on a significant leadership role at present, but see themselves in such a role down the line, Artscape has an interesting opportunity. The arts charity is looking for an executive assistant. The role involves working with the organization's president and CEO, Tim Jones. In other words, this is an opportunity to learn from one of Toronto's leading social entrepreneurs.

Finally, Textbooks for Change, an Ottawa-based startup that's moving to Toronto in 2015, is hiring a business developer. The company collects textbook donations from Canadian post secondary institutions and sends the majority of them to African universities—the other half is either recycled or resold to students in North America. According to its positing, Textbooks for Change is growing quickly and needs help expanding its operations into the United States, which is where the business developer comes in.

Like the Heritage Toronto's listing, this listing is light on specific requirements, though the company does warn this is not a “cushy” or “easy” position. “This job will be the most challenging role you've ever had,” they say in their posting.
