We’re looking for a development leader who can both code and manage others, and knows how to get things moving. On a day-to-day basis you will be discussing product requirements, asking questions, and building. We like MVPs, proof of concepts, and speed.
We don’t reinvent the wheel here, we’re smart, pragmatic, and we’re obsessed with delivering and picking up new and more efficient ways of doing things in order to get there.
