Fruition is seeking a seasoned software engineer to lead our development team. This is a “working” leader role; you’ll spend about 60% of your time working on complex, enterprise-level Drupal 8 and 9 projects – and whatever other cool stuff you can dream up with our clients to grow their businesses. In addition, you’ll work closely with our CTO, VP of Development, project management and design teams to craft strategic direction and mentor your team. The work you supervise will be diverse and polyglot. You need not be a WordPress or Python developer, but feel comfortable mentoring those who are leveling up their game every day.
This is a position for progressive developers who love professional development and tightening the loop between learning, open-source contribution and real-world application. We won’t micromanage you and you should feel no need to do so with the development team you lead.
This position leads the development business unit and shares responsibility for day-to-day production with our Lead Technical Project Manager and Service Desk Manager. You’ll spend roughly 60% of your time writing great code, 20% in support and mentor-ship of junior developers, and 20% on ensuring projects are set up for success alongside our dedicated PM team.
Our Drupal practice is heavy on Drupal Commerce, so experience in this ecosystem or JSON:API and decoupled environments is strongly preferred. We also maintain a healthy WordPress practice and you should be comfortable working with the WP practice lead to support that business line. Strong underlying software development lifecycle knowledge and skills are required – be prepared to discuss merits of service decoration vs. replacement with colleagues. An appetite for speaking at camps and conferences and writing for our engineering blog… because you’ve got something to say.
