Petal is a leading Canadian healthcare orchestration and billing company that revolutionizes healthcare systems to make them agile, efficient, and resilient by enabling the forecasting and shaping of world-class healthcare through Healthcare BI, advanced analytics, and informed insights.

Our commitment to fostering an exceptional workplace culture has earned us notable recognitions, including being listed as a Great Place to Work in both the technology and healthcare sectors.

Join us in our mission to empower healthcare innovators and improve healthcare differently.

Let's talk Tech Stack

The backend stack you'll be working with mainly consists of Node.js services interacting in an event-driven model on the Kafka platform.

We use the FHIR standard, which is highly recognized in the healthcare domain, for data storage and operations. We are a SaaS (Software as a Service) company targeting the implementation of best DevOps practices.

Our infrastructures are cloud-based, entirely managed as code with Terraform, and our latest applications are containerized and deployed using Kubernetes .

Automating the deployment pipeline is a top priority for us, and we use various platforms including GitLab for implementation.

We strongly believe in a continuous deployment approach and have achieved high maturity in this area, deploying code into production environments multiple times a day.

Our web and mobile applications utilize modern tools such as Angular and React Native , along with RxJS , Redux , and Storybook .

Quality is central to our principles, and all this code is tested using frameworks like Jest , as well as end-to-end testing libraries and services.
