The Opportunity

Web Engineering Technical Lead

Snagajob is looking for an exceptionally talented and passionate full-stack tech lead to help us build the platform that powers the largest job marketplace for hourly workers. This role has tremendous growth potential as well as an opportunity to manage other engineers. With more than 47 million active hourly workers and 450,000 employer locations nationwide, we are reinventing the way employers and workers connect. You will be working closely with product and design teams to transform the worker’s job search experience. As a member of the Snagajob Engineering team, you'll be working in an Agile development environment with a team that prides itself on innovation, is focused on product development, and doesn’t shy away from solving difficult business problems. 

We’re looking for someone who enjoys being a key contributor in an entrepreneurial environment. You’ll work alongside – not for – UX designers, product managers, and other engineering team members. This isn’t a task-receiving role; we want your hands, brain, and heart-making solutions and will shape the platform’s future.

Our tech stack is modern and always evolving. Currently, we utilize .NET Core, Angular 10, Angular Material, TypeScript, RxJS, NGRX, Sass, Docker, NodeJS, NGINX, CircleCI, AWS, E2E testing with Protractor and Cypress, Unit Testing with Karma and Jasmine, and other technologies. You might not have experience in every area but if you have the drive to learn and grow, we encourage you to apply.

This role may be based remotely or in our Arlington or Richmond, VA, or Charleston, SC offices.

Expand your skills with our weekly tech talks and book clubs. Learn about, and experiment with, new technologies/ideas in our monthly hack days and chapter meetings. Engineering at Snagajob isn’t just about keeping the lights on and the site running. It’s a place for you to learn and grow in a supportive team environment.
