This is how we do 😎

As a lead developer, you’re the king of the castle. A good king that is, no Leopold II shenanigans around here. You are a beacon of light and expertise; you’ll represent and guide a team of developers, keeping them challenged and focused. You also make sure they’re somewhat presentable as human beings, you know how they can get.

Are you that somebody?

As you might have gathered from the intro, your communication, people & strategic skills are as essential, if not more so than your technical abilities

  • You care deeply about customer service and you’re able to communicate effectively and timely; it’s the only way to make close collaboration work as it should. You’re down with the business lingo as well, as in you can translate a buzzword-drenched conversation into technical next steps.
  • Ideally, you have a history of mentoring people. You need to be able to give others your undivided attention, taking time to understand the points they make, ask direct questions in an appropriate fashion, and you’re able to deliver constructive feedback time and time again. Together with HR, you’ll also supervise the hiring process of new developers and mentor the newly hired ones. 
  • By using the powers of logic and reason, you can identify the strengths and weaknesses of alternative approaches or solutions to problems. You can effectively break down large development tasks and set up a smooth workflow. If you love filling up backlogs, this one's for you.

Time to get technical

Even though you’re backed by a bunch of talented developers, you’ll still need to lead by example. You are a full stack developer yourself, after all. Below is a huge list of languages and technologies we use on the regular. It would be great if some of these sound familiar to you! We ‘d love to dive into that a bit deeper during an interview so make sure you have some examples with you.

Modern JavaScript front end application development:

  • Languages: Modern JavaScript ES2017, optionally TypeScript
  • Frameworks: React/Next, React Native, Vue.js/Nuxt, Svelte/Sapper
  • Linting: ESLint, Prettier
  • Quick deployments: now.sh, surge.sh
  • Design systems: Figma, Zeplin

Modern back end API:

  • Languages: JavaScript, Python, PHP
  • API Standards: REST, GraphQL, JSON API
  • Frameworks: Express, Koa, RESTify, Serverless
  • ORM: Sequelize
  • Continuous Integration: Gitlab, Circle CI
  • Containerization: Docker
  • Data Storage: Airtable, SQL, Firebase/Parse, Elasticsearch, Redis, MongoDB
  • Server OS: Ubuntu
  • Cloud Providers: Digital Ocean, AWS, Google Cloud Platform

Bringing it home 🚀

Believe us when we say our team of heroes means the world to us. Simply put, we care about three things: personal growth, having a high impact, and getting paid. It’s hard to get a company to thrive if the people in it can’t grow along with it. And you can’t force personal growth either; so where does the motivation to learn and grow come from? That’s right, it’s knowing your efforts are making a difference. Every day, we want you to leave the office with a sense of accomplishment. Oh yeah, and a nice paycheck also helps.
