Senior Developer

Pear Deck (Iowa City, IA)

Full Time

Senior Developer

This person is responsible for code quality and consistency on the team. You will be the person the team looks to for guidance on questions of infrastructure. You may or may not be the Project Manager (depending on preference and experience), but will definitely be who helps the PM understand technical constraints and how they impact the timeline. A Senior Developer at Pear Deck plays a role in mentoring the more novice developers. While not necessarily responsible for performance reviews (if you are not the PM), you will have an eye out for the professional growth of younger team members and understand you are a leader simply by nature of being the most experienced.


Things your team might do on a given day

About Working on Our Product Team

We are forming a new product pod at Pear Deck and are looking for a combination of skills spread across four new people. Product design and development at Pear Deck is about working as a team to unpack a problem and solve it. Your team will work closely together every day to scope out new features, design them, test them, and code them.

Our process is very collaborative and affords many opportunities to talk through ideas or get feedback. At the same time, individual alone time to puzzle or crank through some code is an important part of the work. Our teams are always working to find a balance between community and autonomy, spaciousness and sprinting, perfecting and shipping.

We are looking for people who are excited to bring their creativity, honesty, and initiative to the challenges of growing a company and creating something worthy.
