Allovue is looking to hire someone who loves leading, mentoring, and growing technical talent. Their primary responsibility will be helping our development team grow their technical and interpersonal skills through quality and supportive mentorship. They will collaborate with product leadership and our development team to identify staffing needs and grow our team, maintain quality development and delivery processes, and keep up to date technical systems documentation. We have six individual contributors and are looking to grow that team to 8-10 over the next year. All individual contributors will report to you as the new Director of Development.
We are currently transitioning from primarily using Ruby on Rails and EmberJS to Elixir and Phoenix. We do not expect candidates to have a deep knowledge of our specific technical stack, but they should have experience managing development teams, mentoring and advancing early career developers, and working collaboratively with product managers and designers. We do not expect this role to directly contribute to our product regularly. This role will be approximately 80% management and mentorship, which may include paired programming and other activities in support of our individual contributors. The remaining 20% will be dedicated to administrative tasks, such as policy maintenance and process documentation.
Although we are open to candidates who also want to serve as the technical leader at Allovue, our primary concern is supporting our development team; we are happy leaving technical leadership decisions about product architecture and new technology to our principal developers.
