Director of Software Engineering

Location: Can be fully remote anywhere in the US

The Company seeks a director of software engineering. In addition to leading and mentoring our developers and QA engineers, this position will assist in making infrastructure-level decisions and participate in day-to-day development.  Successful candidates will have experience with a variety of software development technologies and aren’t afraid to jump in and learn more. This position will report to the head digital officer.

Primarily languages used are Javascript and PHP. We use graphql for our APIs and React for most of our interactive frontends. Most of our infrastructure is hosted with AWS. We used a combination of Docker containers hosted on fargate managed instances and some stand alone EC2 servers. Our data is housed in a combination of MySQL and PgSQL databases. If this sounds like a stack you would like to work with then you may be a good candidate for the position!

While this position is a management position there is the expectation that you will directly help the team develop new features and maintain the existing stack.

This position will manage a team of 5 software engineering employees dispersed across the US.

At a minimum, you’re a candidate if you can demonstrate:

  • 3 or more years of experience managing people, ideally developers.
  • 6 or more years of current experience with web software development technologies and tools.
  • You are self-motivated to learn new and emerging technologies.
  • You are a strong team and individual motivator with a positive attitude who enjoys working with others.
  • You have the ability to work both independently and collaboratively on large projects with team members, including stakeholders, product owners, designers and other developers.
  • Experience maintaining existing enterprise web applications.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Experience optimizing and working with high traffic web sites using caching and scalability technologies.

An ideal candidate will have:

  • Experience working with PHP MVC frameworks, namely Symfony.
  • Experience working with front end technologies: React.js and ES6+.
  • An understanding of best practices and design principles as they pertain to architecting web applications.
  • Experience working with consuming and writing GraphQL and REST APIs.
  • Experience working with source control, specifically GIT.
  • Experience developing within a virtualized environment using docker.
  • Experience working with AWS and managing infrastructure as code with services like Terraform, Chef, Puppet or Ansible.
  • Experience working with Agile/Scrum methodology and use of project/story tracking software (Shortcut, JIRA, Trello or similar)

Our team

You will join an energetic group of colleagues who aspire to the best processes for development that fit our team. Our team members don’t take themselves too seriously, but we are serious about working together as digital innovators.
