Position Overview:

As a squad leader in the Fountain Worker Experience team, your role will involve guiding a product team of 2 to 4 engineers throughout the entire product cycle. This includes tasks such as planning, architecture, development, and maintenance. You will receive support from product managers, designers, and other software engineers.

To succeed in this position, it is important to have a proven track record of working with products, strong leadership skills, and a solid technical background in backend development, data structures, and architecture.

The Worker Experience team is organized into product squads, each responsible for independently developing new products using a product-led growth approach. New products are released every quarter, with a focus on product-based software development. It is important that you are comfortable with this approach.

The team operates with agility and speed. You will be expected to make decisions even when faced with uncertainty, and you will have the freedom to do so. In fact, you will operate with the autonomy typically found in early- stage product development, rather than in a larger organization.

This role requires collaboration within a globally distributed organization, spanning different time zones, continents, and cultures (including Western and Northern Europe, USA, South Africa, India, and more).

Responsibilities :

  • Plan and take responsibility for delivering your product
  • Lead, train, and coach your team members
  • Design, develop, test, and maintain product features
  • Collaborate to enhance core stack technologies and architecture
  • Review and collaborate with other developers’ work
  • Ensure the quality, reliability, operations, and security of your product
  • Collaborate closely with the product team throughout the product life cycle
  • Implement and maintain the stack using best practices and current pragmatic boundaries
  • Provide clear reports on your product scope, planning, and team members to your superiors

Qualifications :

  • 8+ years of experience in software engineering
  • Demonstrated experience in product-oriented software development
  • Extensive experience in leading engineering teams
  • Strong technical expertise in software development and architecture, TypeScript, and cloud-first solutions
  • Ability to work independently and confidently, even in dynamic situations and with limited information
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal, in English, to facilitate effective collaboration with the team. Proficiency in French is also highly regarded

Nice to have:

  • Previous positions in global startups will be highly valued
  • Familiarity with event- drive n architecture, serverless architectures, high volume architectures, API strategies, MongoDB, AWS, micro-services, web security, and Agile methods is highly desirable

Location: You will work remote ly from the US or Canada during East Coast time zones.

Salary Range: $220,000-$286,000

Even if you do not meet all the requirements above, we still encourage you to apply for this position. While we try to be thorough with our prerequisites, not everything about you as a candidate can be condensed into a list of bullet points. What do you have to lose?
