How will I make an impact?

As a Software Development Manager reporting to the VP of R&D, you will manage a team of around 7-12 people, you will set goals, provide coaching, communicate on behalf of the development team, and do a little bit of development work as well.

Within your first 30 days, you will take initiative to learn about your team and our codebase, putting together individual career plans for each team member and removing any roadblocks that impact productivity.

What’s the tech stack?

  • We’re a C#, .NET, Java, React.js, Elasticsearch, Azure, Kanban-ish shop
  • Familiarity with ECMs like SharePoint, FileNet, etc. would be awesome

Not sure if you have enough or the right experience for this job? Apply anyways. Only 1% of candidates will ever meet every single requirement on most job postings. It’s not a big deal if you don’t know how to code in every language we use, but you do need to have a technical background and have managed a team in the past.

What are the challenges?

We’re a fully bootstrapped small company that is growing very quickly. There will be growing pains. It can be a bit chaotic at times and that backlog just keeps growing, but it’s an evolving company culture and you can help shape it. Until then, you have to be very comfortable with lack of structure, understand that you won’t have time to do everything, and know how to prioritize tasks on your own. Don’t be surprised if priorities change.

Why join?

We’re a team of experienced grownups who work hard and get home on time. Our product isn’t glamourous but it’s satisfying work. We’re solving real problems within our space, impacting hundreds of organizations, and making work life significantly easier. We are a profitable scale-up that values sustainable growth.

We promote continuous learning in a flexible work environment, innovate often, pivot when needed, and iterate rapidly. We value creativity and encourage autonomy. You’ll also hear us laughing often throughout the day, either with each other, at each other, or at ourselves.
