BC Housing is a provincial Crown agency with an annual budget of $1.6 billion (2020/21) and a portfolio of housing services and programs that assist approximately 117,616 households in over 300 communities provincewide. As such, we continually seek sustainable housing solutions that are supported by excellence in service delivery and research, and take into account social, financial and environmental impacts.

Our Information Technology Department plays a mission-critical role within this complex environment by ensuring that BC Housing has the right systems and applications in place at all times to deliver on its mandate.

You’ll also support the Quality Assurance team in developing testing strategy, and work closely with the IT Data Integration & Analytics team, Business Systems Analysts and business users to ensure data quality within the systems.


Your application development expertise is built on a solid foundation, namely, a bachelor’s degree in Information Technology, Computer Science, or Engineering from a recognized postsecondary institution, and considerable development experience in small to medium projects, IT solutions and services, designing operational reporting applications, interacting with project managers, business analysts, and technical resources such as application development team members and users, and complete lifecycle application development projects.
