Job Description
Ref ID: 05060-0011181838

Classification: Software Engineer

Compensation: $120000.00 to $150000.00 yearly

Leading a team of software developers is a challenging job. It requires a rare balance of both technical skills, and the ability to motivate, and even inspire, other engineers on the team. But despite the challenges, coaching and mentoring a team of software professionals is what you love doing.

In this Lead Software Developer role, you'll do just that. You'll be working with around 20 other tech workers, in a recently renovated office in the trendy Mount Pleasant neighbourhood, near downtown Vancouver.

The company has created a unique software solution used by industrial customers around the globe, to streamline and improve business processes. In other words, this software saves people time, money and headaches.


This Lead Software Developer role is suitable for someone like you, who has spent several years writing code for software products. At some point, you realized that although you love coding, you also have a knack for leading other members of the developers’ team. Coaching others on the team comes naturally to you, and you like educating others to bring up the overall level on the team. And you know how to have some fun doing it at the same time.


In this full-time position, you'll work in a comfortable, newly renovated office in Vancouver's Mount Pleasant neighbourhood, near tons of great restaurants and transit lines. The office is walking distance from both the Canada Line and the Expo Line.

In addition, you'll earn a competitive base salary and be eligible for equity in this fast-growing firm.
Estimated base salary for this role will range between $120,000 to $150,000, depending on experience.


The company is experiencing rapid growth, since their software product addresses an often-neglected need among industrial companies. The team has created a solution that is being demanded by clients around the globe, and now the developers’ team is growing to keep up with feature requests. The product roadmap is full of ideas, and now they need some additional people on the team to bring the features to life.

Initially, you will be coding approximately 80-90% of the time. This proportion is expected to decrease over the months ahead, as the team continues to grow. But you'll definitely be keeping your hands on the keyboard for the foreseeable future.


In this role, you'll be working primarily with both client-side and server-side JavaScript frameworks. Ideally, you have worked with node.js and react.js in some of your previous product releases. But even if you have worked in other modern, open-source environments using Ruby, Golang or Python, I encourage you to give me a shout. The leaders at this company value your systems design and problem-solving skills. It is not just about which programming language you have used in the past.


If you're interested in pursuing this role, please contact me for an initial discussion. This is a chance for us to discuss specifics, such as the company name, the key hiring managers, and the more in-depth job requirements. This is also a great opportunity to talk about your overall career goals and preferences. If there is a suitable match, then I will make an introduction to the client on your behalf and organize a series of interviews.

For a more complete discussion, please email me at [Click Here to Email Your Resume]. Also, even if you're not quite ready to apply for the role, please send me a brief note on LinkedIn to keep in contact for the future (
Job Requirements

• You enjoy applying technology to solve business problems


• Preference will be given to candidates who are currently in Vancouver with proper working permission to work in Canada
• No relocation or VISA sponsorship support will be offered for this role
