We are looking for a leader who is both an experienced web application developer and has previously participated in designing/developing a web application product from inception to launch and beyond.

  • An Enjoyable Work Life - Though we take our work seriously, we believe a balance between concrete and time-bound project goals and a relaxed working environment that allows time for iteration and mental ‘white space’ is most conducive to great work
  • Merit-based Compensation Package - Competitive pay based on a combination of market standards and your experience, an impact-weighted quarterly profit-sharing bonus program, and fully funded comprehensive health benefits plan

The Day-to-Day

  • Build a big (new) application, that will empower other teams and drive company growth as we disrupt our market with amazing new tools
  • Be the software development leader, finding the path to excellence for the team, the product and each project.
  • Participate in mentorship with other developers while working together to bring creative new solutions to market
  • Collaborate on product development with the Founders and UX/UI team

  • Participate in ideating, pitching and planning new application features and enhancements

The Tools You Need

  • Previous experience providing mentorship/leadership to a growing team of software engineers
  • Proven ability to implement UI using JavaScript frameworks (Vue.js/React.js)
  • Comfortable with writing, editing, and maintaining Unit/Feature tests
  • Experience with Test Driven Development (TDD)
  • To be a communication pro, always able to pleasantly explain technical issues to a non-technical person
