If you:

  • Are a leader who believes in leader-leader self-organizing teams and is willing to work on that evolution
  • Are a coach who supports broad growth because you know that developers have careers and not just jobs
  • Are a pragmatic problem solver who can identify process inefficiencies and find creative ways to eliminate them
  • Are excited by the challenge of helping us evolve from a midsize SaaS application to a global enterprise platform

Then we are looking for you!

We are big fans of Turn the Ship Around! by L. David Marquet, and are working to build and reinforce a culture of action and ownership. You will help foster leadership through all levels of the organization. You are not a master developer, but have a strong technical background and familiarity with patterns and practices. You know that agile is a description, not a dogma, and that continuous improvement is achievable.


  • Foster a team culture that encourages ownership, continual learning, and customer delight.
  • Provide hands-on coaching and mentoring to Software Developers for technical and soft skill growth.
  • Work with product owners and clients to contribute to strategic growth of the platform.
  • Remove barriers to keep product teams close to the client and product to find value in what we build.
  • Champion product ownership and spread leadership throughout the team.
  • Ruthlessly identify process weakness and build and use metrics to drive improvement.
  • Take a lead role in recruiting and hiring Software Developers.
  • Familiarity with the enterprise Java technology stack. While we are not dogmatic about what technologies we use, this is the one we are using right now.
  • Help lead the team to balance commercial viability, scalability, security, and technical innovation to evolve the Shareworks platform.
  • You are a cultural addition to our team and will bring a unique and diverse perspective.


  • Bachelors of Science in Computer Science, or equivalent experience
  • Familiarity with development and deployment of enterprise applications
  • Working knowledge of management techniques and strategies
  • 8+ years’ experience as a developer or engineer
  • 5+ years’ experience as a development or engineering team lead (or other technical management)
