Why would you want to work here?
We’re a bootstrapped, profitable company started back in April of 2011. We're a young, ambitious company who only answers to our customers and we don’t just claim to be customer-centric - we live it.

  • Strong benefit package including a 401k with 6% match, health/dental/vision insurance for you and our family, funding for continuing education, paid parental leave, kindle + unlimited books, home office setup, company meetups, and 20 PTO + 10 sick days

  • Based in the USA, with a quiet home office with fast internet.
  • At least 8+ years of experience in web development, at least 3 years of management experience.
  • You have a desire to grow and learn as a manager, grow and develop others, and get results through others rather than personal technical proficiency.
  • You are proficient with software development practices for triage, prioritization, and execution. We use Shape Up.
  • You communicate clearly and are able to develop positive relationships with others, regardless of their rank or role.
  • You resolve problems, manage risk, lead change, facilitate collaborative decision-making, and delegate to team members with different skill sets from your own.
  • Strong technical background, preferably with PHP, React, RDBMS, and AWS.
  • Exceptional time management skills.
  • Attention to detail and commitment to quality.
  • Pragmatic decision making.

Your responsibilities will include:
  • Mentor and provide regular feedback to employees regarding code quality, career development, communication style, and work-life balance.
  • Communicate your team’s goals, the scope and risks of your projects, and be responsible for the delivery of initiatives on clear timelines.
  • Ensure the software your team delivers is on time, high quality, measurable, and maintainable.
  • Participate in hiring and sourcing to build a diverse, high performance engineering team.
  • Collaborate with engineering, product and design leadership to define and prioritize projects that help us meet our objectives.
  • Provide clarity to the team and the company, ensuring they have a clear understanding of the direction of the projects and the reasoning behind decisions.
  • Ensure our service runs with a high level of reliability, performance, and security.
  • Encourage an environment of technical excellence, and facilitate architectural discussions and decision making.
  • Be a technical point of contact for partnerships as we grow.
  • Technical vetting of product pitches.
