Responsibilities

The selected candidate will lead our team of back end and front end software developers. Your role is focused on management and mentorship, tracking progress of builds, resource allocation, development process improvement, and measurement and team accountability. Although this position will not be expected to develop code, you should be technical enough to brainstorm and troubleshoot issues with a developer or Product Manager and be able to review a developer’s code and provide feedback. You should have a strong operational mindset, be process-oriented, and highly focused on implementing systems and frameworks that set the team up for success and growth.

In this role, you will be responsible for the following:

  • Management & mentorship. You are responsible for creating and fostering a culture of continuous learning and collaboration for developers. You are responsible for developing pathways for more junior developers to grow into mid and eventually senior developers. You are responsible for evolving the role of your senior technical leads to ensure their continued growth and development. You are responsible for evaluating the performance of employees based on their progress and providing ongoing, constructive feedback to aid in their growth.
  • Process: You are responsible for defining the development methodology and processes for the team aimed at building quality products, removing obstacles, and increasing velocity. You are responsible for evolving and iterating on those methodologies and processes as it makes sense to improve the team’s performance and to ensure seamless delivery of work
  • Standards, Measurement, & Accountability: You are responsible for establishing standards for quality management and holding the team accountable. You are responsible for determining how we should be measuring things like velocity, quality of code, and system performance and putting a system of measurement in place.
  • Leadership & Collaboration: You will partner with Product Managers, Software Architects, and tech leads on your team on technical solutions to advance product roadmap priorities. You are expected to help size, scope and shape work at a high level before all requirements are known.
  • Project Management: During builds, you are expected to keep the project moving forward and dealing with any setbacks that prevent that. You are responsible for identifying problems, raising red flags, and proposing solutions.
  • Hiring & Onboarding: You are responsible for hiring employees for the development team based on their skills and onboarding them successfully onto the team.

  • You feel job satisfaction in fostering a team environment that creates excellent work, even if you don’t have your hands directly in the code yourself.
  • Collaboration is your middle name. You can partner with many types of people across roles. You can see a situation from all angles and find compromise as it makes sense, but aren’t afraid to weigh in with your recommended approach.
  • You love problem solving, whether its troubleshooting an issue with a developer on the team or working with product management to determine the best way to move forward on a new feature.
  • You have experience leading a large development team and implementing change that led to positive outcomes for the people on that team, the product the team is building, and the company overall.
