Senior Fullstack Developer who wants to lead teams & mentor developers

Are you a senior developer who is looking to have high impact? We are looking for senior software engineers who want the chance to lead teams, manage, mentor & grow other developers, and shape the technical direction of Bauer Xcel.

Experience in a specific tech stack isn’t important to us - we’re much more interested in people who love to grow others, and understand that agile is a mindset not a fixed process.

We offer competitive salary, paid time and budget for professional development, good vacation and health benefits, and we really, truly care about your quality of life.  If you are looking for work-life balance, we would love to talk to you!

What you would be working on-

  • Our CMS team builds the CMS that supports 13 magazines, including Life & Style, Women's Weekly, In Touch and J-14.
  • Our sweepstakes team builds our global sweepstakes platform Sweepon, that is used by over 150 international partners.
  • Our BI team builds the recommendation engine and user segmentation service.

We are 15 fullstack developers in total, both co-located in New York and distributed along the East Coast. We don’t have a separate ops team - all our developers support their own code in production.

About You

  • You are familiar with test driven development and wouldn’t work any other way.
  • You are happy to pair with others.
  • You are familiar with agile and how to use it to best serve a team. You enjoy finding bottlenecks in the process and helping teams work faster.
  • You enjoy mentoring and teaching others.
  • You enjoy writing clean, idiomatic and readable code.
  • You are happy working in backend code as well as javascript - although you may have a preference for either one

You are happy working in the following tech stack  - experience is not needed, as long as you are willing to learn:

  • Ruby on Rails
  • Backbone JS
  • Node JS
