Company Description

You will be joining one of the fastest growing software companies in St. Louis and will be transforming the lives of creators such as florists and caterers with tools that have never been available in the market.

Here are our core company principles: We are always measurably growing, radically transparent, absolutely positive and empathetic.

Job Description

Curate is looking for a Development Manager to play a key role in rebuilding our SAAS application in a serverless architecture. In this position you will be a reporting to the CTO and working with fellow dev managers and solution architects to support your team as we rebuild our web application on the AWS platform.

We are looking for a driven individual who understands leadership is a position of service, not of control. You will be responsible for the success of an Agile development team working within a SCRUM model. Your job will be dynamic and ever changing. In the morning you may be conducting one-on-ones and providing coaching, and that afternoon you may be designing a new database schema or data migration plan to solve the hurdles of an upcoming feature request. You may also be asked to triage a bug or two.

You will be working with the product team to scope and break down requests into stories to be included in upcoming sprints. You will be working with the technology leadership to define technical solutions for new features, plans to break apart our monolith application into microservices, and processes to ensure our teams operate efficiently. All with the goal of delivering a scalable and stable application to our end users.

Does this sound like a challenge you have successfully tackled before? Looking to make an impact and build an all-star team and product? We would love to hear from you!
