Java Technical Lead

We are looking for a Software Development Lead that is an innovator and problem solver. You thrive in a fast-paced entrepreneurial environment handling multiple responsibilities, quick and able to think on your feet. You are the one everyone come to when they have a problem they can’t solve, and the one that can take any idea thrown at you by the product people and turn it into a “grown-up’s” software that is fast, reliable and maintainable. You have few years of leading development teams, but you can still out-code any of them in a hackathon. You know how to leverage software to help a growing and dynamic business succeed and enjoy developing technology that has an immediate and measurable impact on the business.

A Day in the Life Will Likely Include:

Leading, supporting and mentoring the engineering team, reviewing code and providing guidance where needed
Maintaining highest level of code quality and team velocity by predicting potential issues and solving those you didn’t predict
Staying abreast of the latest advances in the following areas
Web-based and Mobile-based applications
Restful API
Complex integration with distributed systems
Integration with AWS services
Working with business owners to design and assess new features
Leading requirements analysis and system design
As a Lead software developer, you will be given tremendous opportunity to innovate and contribute new ideas. You will be part of our small team of top engineers, with the means to directly impact the success of the organization. We believe strongly in self-organization, mentoring, team programming, and sharing of knowledge and expertise.
