We're growing and are looking to add a Software Development Team Lead to our product team of product-focused developers. We’re looking for an experienced technical leader who can support and grow our development team, work as a Developer on projects, and lead communication with clients, including non-technical founders. Together we’ll build both great products and a great team.


As a Development Team Lead, you’ll provide mentorship and support to up to 3 developers, with one-on-ones and reviews. You’ll collaborate with other team leadership on team fulfillment, client success, and improving team processes. You’ll also work as a product development consultant, collaborating in a lean, cross-functional team, to help clients bring their ideas to launch.


You’ll work directly with clients on projects as a Senior Developer, leading by example with your communication and advocating for how we work as consultants, especially in difficult situations. You’ll partner closely with designers, developers, and clients to help solve problems.

You’ll deliver high-quality, well-tested software, mentor both client and thoughtbot engineering teams in software best practices, advise on product prioritization, agile process, team culture, and communication.


During investment time, you'll contribute to the broader tech community, thoughtbot, and yourself. The majority of thoughtbot's open-source work and blog content is the result of investment time.

thoughtbot is a fully remote company. This is a fully remote position on the Ignite team, which partners with startups, entrepreneurs, and innovation teams to bring new products to market through early-stage product strategy, validation, and first-version product build and launches.


We're looking for teammates who overlap with our clients' working hours. This position is available to anyone throughout the Americas (UTC-3 through UTC-10).



Salary and benefits vary by location and country. The US salary range for this role is: $140,000- $170,000 USD.
