Type: Full Time
Created: 2021-08-30 12:56:13
Due to ongoing public health concerns, Think Company continues to operate in the United States as a fully remote company. As such, please consider this a remote (work from home) position.
We are looking for a Technical Lead to join our team at Think Company.
At Think Company some Technical Lead roles are more code-focused, and some are more consulting-focused. It’s absolutely not expected that a Technical Lead is simultaneously the lead coder, the lead coordinator, and a lead consultant. The common denominator for a Technical Lead is trust. Regardless of their particular strengths and their role on a project, the Technical Lead is the one who earns and maintains the trust of the client through careful listening, consistent planning, and competent execution by the team.
Candidates should also be able to demonstrate prior experience with setting and ensuring compliance with coding standards, making browser and device support recommendations, solving application architecture challenges, advising on content management workflow and CMS configuration, analyzing and remediating page performance issues, and addressing accessibility issues. Candidates should have experience in accurately scoping projects, defining project requirements, translating business requirements into technical requirements, architecting the technical environment and hosting infrastructure, identifying milestones and managing a delivery team against those milestones.

Work collaboratively as part of a team that includes visual/UX designers, developers, project managers, and other roles (both clients and internal colleagues), flexing between a leadership or supporting role as required
Architect technical solutions that meet clients' business, IT, and user needs, and that balance time, budget, and quality considerations appropriately
Manage developers to deliver technical solutions on-time and on-budget, based on a technical delivery plan; work with project manager to communicate technical team status and manage client expectations
Research and document web development technologies, trends, and innovations, and make recommendations or deliver presentations to clients and internal colleagues

Significant experience in leading and coaching a development team to deliver technical deliverables on-time, on-budget, and on-spec
Deep understanding of the modern web platform and common architectural solutions
Significant experience with front-end development practices including accessibility, progressive enhancement, cross-browser/platform compatibility, performance, and pre-processors/build tools
Significant experience with web application development on both the front-end (Angular, React, etc.) and back-end (PHP, .NET, Python, Ruby on Rails, etc.), and an understanding of the tools and platforms needed to host these solutions
Significant experience with content management systems (AEM, Sitecore, Drupal, WordPress, etc.) including data and information architecture, templating, workflow, etc.
Experience with git, svn, or similar version control systems and knowledge of Git Flow methodologies
Familiarity with user experience (UX) design processes (conceptual design, wireframes, usability testing)
Excellent presentation and communication skills
Exceptional customer service skills and obsessive attention to detail
Think Company's developers are passionate about crafting code that is as beautiful and as elegant as our designs. We believe in web standards, progressive enhancement, and accessibility.
