Lead Frontend Developer

We are looking for a lead developer with strong problem-solving and leaderships skills. Your job would include leading a team of 3–5 developers, helping to set priorities, and communicating with client leads. The work will be focused on Sourcetoad’s flagship product, but it would also involve working with other teams, ideas, and tooling.

Sourcetoad is not a cog-in-a-wheel kind of place. We are a mix of laid-back and professional, with space for flexible work schedules. We have tried to make this as nice of a place to work as possible, with top-of-the-line tools, lots of snacks and meals, and well-stocked fridges.

We are a company almost exclusively consisting of programmers, so expect high engineering standards (and lots of nerd humor). We believe in selecting the correct technology to solve specific problems, so a desire to learn and adapt to new things is a must.
