The Role You’ll Play
The mission for the role of Lead Software Engineer is to standardize, evolve and unify our internal data administration interface. This person will be skilled at partnering with internal stakeholders on their technical needs.
We focus on modularity and reuse where it makes sense, while ensuring that there are no constraints to delivering world-class software continuously.
The Lead Software Engineer is a technology focused role for a hands-on coder who will have broad impact on the team and the engineering department. It is not a manager or a team lead role. Strong communication skills, adaptability and a collaborative mindset are key attributes we are looking for in a candidate.

- Collaborate with the product team to develop business requirements.
- Mentor and guide senior software engineers.
Experience and Qualifications we’ll be looking for
- Architecture experience with the ability to lead multiple projects at any given time
- Experience working in an AWS cloud-based environment
- Proven ability to guide and influence the technical practices of an organization
- A desire to constantly improve your skills and the software system
- An analytical and detail-oriented mindset with strong communication skills
- Experience working with engineers that are remote as well as from the local office
- Experience with, and a desire to, follow an Agile and Lean approach to software development (we follow a variant of Scrum and use Jira)
