This job requires a strong focus on improving educational opportunities and outcomes, particularly for disadvantaged students, in the context of a competitive business environment. As a Lead Software Engineer, the ideal candidate will have designed, implemented, tested, and documented solutions that include not only the code to support business functionality, but also the underlying infrastructure required to run that code and the systems required to deploy it. The candidate should also possess technical skills and experience in the virtual infrastructure domain, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and be enthusiastic about building software products and data pipelines with Node.js, frontend JavaScript frameworks, and automated CI/CD. The candidate will report to the Executive Director and work within an agile and cross-functional application team and guide a lean yet diverse software engineering squad in striking an effective compromise between best practices and rapid innovation. The candidate will lead by interacting with all levels of software engineers to establish and enforce application technology standards, design patterns, processes, development, and deployment. The candidate will also work closely with product owners in planning and estimating new features and releases.

The candidate will build software products and data pipelines using a diverse array of technologies such as React.js, Node.js, and AWS, and enhance existing continuous integration and delivery pipelines to enable our team to efficiently deploy into production.  Additionally, s/he will be expected to ensure communications and relationships with customers and cross-team members are professional and productive.

Successful candidates will be innovative thinkers, skilled communicators, and active partners, adept in interpreting and understanding the needs of the team and its stakeholders.
