Differential Job Posting: Product Lead


by Colin Flynn

Job description:

Differential is growing! Yep, it turns out clients like us :) Our team of software craftsmen, jokesters, and all around good folk needs more firepower.

In addition to one of the best group of people to work with, we are also very picky about the types of clients we’ll work with. From early-stage startups to forward-thinking corporate pioneers, our mission is to rapidly unlock value for good people with meaningful ideas.

Differential has quickly become known as one of the top Meteor development teams in the world. (Read: we’re kind of a big deal, we think). We know that the only way to maintain our leadership position is by adding talented developers. Not currently a Meteor Developer? Not a problem–two years ago no one was. As long as you’re passionate about building great products, have relevant experience and love to learn, you may still be a great candidate (“so you’re telling me there’s a chance!”). From Node.js to React.js, Differential leverages all of the best modern JavaScript technologies to craft products. Meteor is the platform that brings it all together.

If you love learning from and collaborating with other smart developers, and have a passion for building great software, let’s chat. (Read: we only hire developers who can communicate well with others.)

Key responsibilities include:
  • Managing client and team expectations related to product development
  • Leading a product team in architecting and building web and mobile Meteor applications
  • Managing rapid changes during product development
  • Delivering high quality applications within the client’s timeline
  • Sharing knowledge and learning through pair programming and collaboration
  • Improving processes and workflows for delivering high quality applications
  • Contributing back to the Differential team and the open source community
Ideal Team Member Characteristics:
  • High level of interest in Meteor, both the technology and the community
  • Strong Javascript skills, including best practices around writing clean, modular code
  • Experience leading development projects utilizing modern web technologies
  • Prefers “lean startup” / agile development practices (build, measure, learn)
  • Contributes to open-source projects
  • Enjoys pairing and collaborating with others on problems
  • Naturally curious about and interested in new technologies
  • Strong HTML/Templating skills
  • Strong CSS/LESS/SASS skills
  • Comfortable with web services and APIs

We partner with high-potential startups and forward-thinking corporate innovators to help bring meaningful products to life, quickly.
