Development Team Lead

Development Team Lead

Are you tired of working on the same applications? Are you looking for a new challenge? Here’s a little bit about the kind of things we’re doing at InvestX:

• We’re building the only cross-border private equity marketplace
• We’ve adopted a lean framework for accelerating our growth
• We’re a small team so everyone gets to contribute across the board – coding, testing, architecture, etc.

We’re looking for a senior-level developer for a mixed Team Lead role – it is about 80% development, 20% management, but that may change over time – to round out our team in downtown Vancouver. You would report into a CEO who provides overall leadership for the group but does not do hands-on development. We’re a small, self-reliant team, so you’ll need to be someone who takes responsibility for his or her code: you don’t mind talking to customers to figure out what they need or writing your own test code.

Things we like about working here

• We work in a freshly renovated office with lots of white board and flexible space for thinking
• We’re 3 buildings down from the Burrard Skytrain Station, close to lots of food options
• Free drinks juice and pop, plus monthly beer o’clock
• Competitive salary and benefits
• We’re a small company so there’s no bureaucracy, office politics, or layers of management

Responsibilities

• Your primary leadership responsibility is to ensure our small team of developers are working cohesively, including leading code reviews and ensuring our standards are adhered to
• Write code
• Write tests to ensure your code is bullet proof
• Conduct architectural and systems analyses, including research and development
• Act as a Scrum Master – we follow a relaxed Scrum methodology and need someone to make sure we’re disciplined in the processes we’ve agreed on (both our team and our product owners)
• Provide leadership for the development group

Qualifications

• You treat coding as a profession, which you can demonstrate by your knowledge and your dedication to continuous learning and have senior or expert skill level
• You have a deep understanding of object oriented analysis & design
• You demonstrate a team-focused work ethic
• You have a solid understanding of the .Net framework, ASP.Net (MVC 5, Web Api 2), C#, SQL Server, HTML, CSS, source control systems (git)
• You have demonstrated experience in agile development environments (Scrum, Kanban)
• You’ve lead developers in the past, either formally or informally
