Development Team Lead

Austin, Texas, United States · Development

Description

We’re looking for an experienced technical leader to support and grow our development team in Austin, while also continuing to be an individual contributor. Together we’ll build both great products and a great team.

As Development Team Lead, you’ll provide mentorship and support to the other developers in your office with one-on-ones and reviews. You'll also be working to grow the development team, our reputation in Austin, attracting great projects, and working inbound opportunities. You’ll work together with the local management team, and global thoughtbot leadership, to manage the business and success of the studio.

Requirements

Alongside hands-on technical work, you'll be helping to support the Austin development team: working with team members on their professional development, hiring new people, and finding new projects. Along with the other Directors in Austin, you'll be responsible for profitability of the studio.

thoughtbot web developers are able to rapidly build high-quality web applications in Ruby on Rails or Elixir and Phoenix, fully test-driven. Qualified candidates have an excellent knowledge of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SQL, Unix, deployment, performance, debugging, refactoring, design patterns, and other programming practices. While Rails experience is a must, we're also rapidly expanding our work into other languages and frameworks.

Very well-qualified candidates will also have experience with consulting, and have a proven track record of attracting potential customers.

All persons hired will be required to verify identity and eligibility to work in the United States and to complete the required employment eligibility verification upon hire.
