  • Coordinate the delivery of features from the roadmap through each stage of the development cycle.

  • Lead by example in terms of excellence, attention to detail, evaluating priorities and risks, designing scalable solutions, etc.
About You

  • You have a few years of experience being one of the most experienced developers in a team (or teams), with responsibility over their outcomes, acting as a multiplier and have learnt some lessons along the way.
  • You are passionate about learning, continuous improvement, and excellence in software engineering as a craft, and love nurturing a culture that embraces those values.
  • You thrive when given autonomy and responsibility to identify problems, drive solutions and bring the team along encouraging a healthy and inclusive work environment that’s both supportive and challenging to promote growth.
We offer a competitive salary along with a dynamic and collaborative work environment including:
  • Fast-track Growth:
