  • Identifying future technical needs and creating plans to meet them
  • Providing feedback and guidance to help us continuously grow and scale

What do we need from you?

  • 5+ years experience leading a team 
  • 10+ years of overall development experience (Ruby on Rails, Javascript, or strongly typed languages preferred)
  • Deep proficiency with web application development and building scalable architecture
  • Ability to be a hands on contributor when need be
  • Experience planning and leading development efforts on large projects
  • Previous experience leading and mentoring teams and driving them toward big goals with consistent execution

  • Experience leading Agile/Scrum ceremonies
  • Previous experience working within a balanced engineering and product team
