  • Lead Engineer

    Join us at the forefront of sophisticated architecture, tool creation, process definition, and team communication. We’re looking for a driven engineer with well-rounded experience to lead the creation of remarkable digital products. See DetailsHide Details

    The Role

    Research and Solution Architecture: Engineers participate in web projects from day one: sitting in on stakeholder interviews, checking out existing codebases, and getting to know the client’s tech team. Once we have a handle on the problem space we evaluate possible technology solutions. We’re not dogmatic about any particular framework; no two clients or projects are the same, and no one technology can solve all problems effectively.

    Collaboration: Engineers work as part of small multi-disciplinary teams. Designers, producers, and engineers work together every day of the project from strategy presentations through to final browser bug fixing. We kick off each day with a daily standup and check in frequently via Slack, Trello, and Github. We also keep up lightweight communication via Slack with clients—engineers at Upstatement are client-facing, so you won’t be playing telephone with account managers.

    Crafting Code: We’re committed to writing modern, performant, maintainable code. This means staying abreast of best practices, reviewing each other’s PR’s, and writing unit and acceptance tests when necessary. The bulk of our code tends to be PHP and JavaScript, but we’re not married to those languages or any associated tooling. Technologies we’ve deployed into production in the past year include WordPress, Craft CMS, Contentful, Prismic, Magento, React, Vue, Gatsby, and Elasticsearch.

    Leadership: As Lead Engineer, you’ll mentor newer team members and guide them on projects towards becoming amazing leaders in their own right. You’ll also have the opportunity to contribute to long-term internal projects and define best practices across the department (in the past two months we’ve had company-wide shares on GDPR, git-iquette, performance testing, and SEO).

    We Are
    • Champions of resourceful engineers and best practices
    • Inspired by the bleeding edge, yet pragmatic and tool agnostic
    • Supporters of ambition and career development
    About You
    • Professional experience in a similar role
    • Fluency with one or more server-side languages
    • Dominant framework/CMS familiarity
    • Modern client-side skills
    • Intimate knowledge of web performance and security
    • Working knowledge of common testing tools and methodologies
    • Familiarity with accessibility standards and best practices
    • Communicative, thoughtful, optimistic, and collaborative
    Bonus Points
    • Working familiarity with Scrum/Agile methodologies
    • Data visualization skills
    • Native app development
    • DevOps experience (Docker, AWS, etc.)
    Benefits
    • Competitive salaries
    • Health, dental, and vision insurance
    • A company-matched retirement plan
    • Healthy (and non-healthy!) snacks
    • A generous, flexible vacation policy
    • Company-wide closure between Christmas & New Year’s Day
    • A gorgeously-designed office in a historic building near North Station, opposite TD Garden
    • Skill + personal development talks, workshops, & seminars
    • A yearly professional development stipend
