Table XI is looking for a Lead Software Developer who can see both the forest and the trees.

Developing great products is about being equally concerned with building the right thing as building it well. For 18 years, we've built our software development practice around three small words and one big idea: tech done right. To us, it means more than clean code and sound design. It means doing right by our partners, by our peers and by our community.

Here’s what we expect from you

  • Lead projects, provide technical guidance, identify risks, proactively learn and share, and mentor more junior team members
  • Expertly develop both back-end and front-end code
  • Understand client's business, build relationships with clients, and guide strategic decisions to make client successful
  • Communicate professionally and empathetically, solicit and provide feedback, actively offer help, and make sure everyone is aligned
  • Guide architecture and implementation discussions, help unblock other developers, establish best practices for maintainability, and strategically balance test coverage, risk and budget
  • Take responsibility (even when no one asks)
  • Work collaboratively on a cross-functional team of developers, designers, and business analysts
  • Learn from everyone, no matter what their title is

Our Tech Stack
  • Back-end: we primarily create applications in Ruby on Rails and Node, though we have a small number of applications with other setups: Elixir and Phoenix, and Python and Flask
  • Front-end: For Javascript, we generally use React, though we have some apps that use Stimulus for when React is too big of a hammer. For CSS we tend to use Bulma or Material Design, and prefer to use styled components for React
  • Mobile: we support native iOS development in both Objective-C and Swift. These days, though, almost all of our apps are being built in React Native
  • Infrastructure: nearly all of our infrastructure is on AWS and managed by Terraform and chef. We are in the process of migrating to Docker containers in Kubernetes (EKS)

Don't hesitate if you don't have specific experience with our tech stack. We have a preference for folks with Ruby on Rails, Node.js or React experience, but if you’re a strong developer with experience in related tools, we want to hear from you!

Who We Are
We’re a curious and humble group who loves to define the future and help build it. Curiosity and critique are key to our chemistry. We’re always looking for new skills, frameworks, and approaches to deliver the most meaningful product and service experiences. And we’re constantly pushing ourselves to experiment, explore and challenge assumptions.

We bring that same passion for learning and improving to our clients: digging into their organizations, reframing their problem statements, and spending time with their users. This ensures we’re pushing our clients forward while designing valuable things people actually use.
