Responsibilities
  • Build robust, well-designed and effective software that solves complex problems.
  • Test, review and deploy code quickly. Our team is exceptional and we TDD most changes, so we don’t slow ourselves down with excessive release processes or meetings. We deploy over 5 times per day and manage major releases with feature flags rather than coordinated deployments.
  • Research, learn and share new techniques for solving complex engineering problems. We’re a highly collaborative team and we push each other to find better solutions every day.
  • Write tools and develop practices for the engineering team. From GraphQL-to-Typescript compilers to fully automated deployments, we take the time to invest heavily in our own productivity.
  • Own projects from end-to-end. On a given day you might be building a system to measure search engine performance, reworking an integration with a telephony provider, or designing a UI component library.
  • Analyze and design solutions to business problems. No one wants to work at a company that throws solutions over the wall to engineers. At Tegus, you’ll be fully involved in determining what to do, not just doing it.
About You
  • You’re motivated and eager to learn. Software and technology rapidly change.
  • You have a team-first mentality and you work collaboratively with different stakeholders to set the technical direction for our products, developing easy-to-use solutions for our customers.
  • You have deep empathy for users and use it to help build products customers love.
  • You take pride in working on projects to successful completion involving a wide variety of technologies and systems.
  • You’re excited to own projects from beginning to end. We believe in hiring great people and getting out of their way. 
Qualifications
  • Experience as a generalist working on both the frontend, backend, and anything it takes to solve problems and delight users both internally and externally.
  • Experience with Python, Ruby on Rails, Vue or Typescript is a plus but not at all required.
  • Familiarity with Agile software development processes and software testing.
  • Ability and desire to work in an open and team-oriented environment.
Benefits & Perks 
  • Remote-friendly - work wherever you're most productive.
  • Comprehensive medical and dental plans. 
  • 401(k) plan with an employer match.
  • Paid parental leave for all parents.
  • All employees are granted equity through our Restricted Stock Units (RSU) Program.

  • Fantastic culture with regular virtual company-wide events, including cooking classes, yoga, meditation and more.
  • Generous employee referral bonus program.
  • The opportunity to attend peer-nominated quarterly DEI events.
  • Working for a thriving, performance-based company that values promoting from within, career advancement and transparency.

And for candidates in Chicago:
  • The option to work from a state of the art office in the heart of Chicago’s Loop featuring standing desks, nursing parent rooms, gender neutral bathrooms, subsidized gym access, and full amenity floor.
