Position Type:Full Time
Pay Rate : $ 100,000.00 - 135,000.00 /Year
Our client is looking for a Lead Software Engineer to collaborate with the VP of Engineering on technical vision, set standards across teams, resolve issues, and unblock complex problems. Lead Engineers are explicitly charged with vetting the technical rigor of their solutions.

As a Lead Engineer, two Team Leads will report into you. You will help guide, coach, mentor, and develop their technical and leadership skills.

Lead Engineers split their time roughly 80/20 between hands-on engineering/coding and administrative (pr review / planning / architecture / 1:1's) work. Lead Engineers enjoy a great degree of autonomy in their work. Their 80% coding time can be spent working with one of the teams below them or they can identify impactful work outside the traditional green light process to attack heads on.

  • A seasoned engineer with technical street cred passionate about open source who enjoys sharing your experience with the team through mentoring, and technical leadership
  • Proven track record delivering SaaS products to market in a startup environment
  • Experience coaching and developing engineers
  • Passionate about writing code that is scalable, maintainable, reusable, and well-tested
  • Interested in building reliable, fault-tolerant, production grade systems
  • Feel comfortable debugging large applications and refactoring them to well-tested components and services
  • Have experience designing, implementing, and maintaining APIs as a service for your team and customers
  • Enjoy optimizing complex data models for understandability and performance
  • While it can be hard to measure experience strictly in terms of time, you should have a strong, proven background in Javascript and Node.js. We'd expect something on the order of 6+ years of full-time professional Javascript experience.
