Senior Software Development Engineer

What makes this job meaningful?

The workplace has changed. Todays employees expect more than just pay or title, they seek careers where they can learn, grow, be challenged, and be valued for the ideas they bring to the table.

Unfortunately, most organizations lack the tools and structure needed to create this kind of coaching and development culture across every team and every manager. Instead, their development efforts are buried in disconnected systems or compliance-based HR software.

When you join Leadr, youll be helping us to solve this incredibly complex, yet worthwhile, puzzle of one to one people development at scale within organizations.

Leadr exists to help every manager become a coach and give every employee a voice and you will play a crucial role in turning this vision into reality.

Our development team at Leadr gets to pioneer this vision through building our world-class product and the systems to support it. We take feedback from our team and customers to create a roadmap to build.

  • At this stage in your career you want to be asked to solve problems, rather than told what to do.
  • Youre excited by our tech stack and know that it presents both an opportunity for you dazzle us with your current skills but also stretch and grow.

Why We Need You

  • We are transitioning to having vertically-integrated development teams where the devs, the QA and the product people are all working together in the same location (although under the current circumstances we're just happy to have everyone in the same timezone! We're all working remotely until things settle down).
  • You will enable us to ship value faster and more frequently without breaking things or disrupting users.
