What you’ll do:

  • Manage & coach a team of 4 full-stack developers ranging from junior to senior levels of experience.
  • Enable and facilitate your team's projects, partnering closely with your PM to plan work and help the team execute effectively.

  • Experience with people management (hiring, performance management, etc).
  • Demonstrated success building great products on top of strong technical foundations.
  • Respect for the industry we serve.

What you do NOT need:

  • A college degree, or high GPA or SAT score.

  • Any equipment – we’ll provide a MacBook and monitor.
  • To drink alcohol! Many of our colleagues do not.

    • API Services - services like search and order processing that are both used by the web applications and integrated by some of our customers directly
