Lead Software Engineer (Remote)

Company: Fleetio
Location: Salt Lake City
Posted on: January 15, 2022

Job Description:

Fleetio is a modern software platform that helps thousands of organizations around the world manage a fleet. Transportation technology is a hot market and we're leading the charge, with raving fans and new customers signing up every day. We recently raised a $21M Series B round and are on an exciting trajectory as a company.

We are looking for a product-minded, hands-on, Software Engineering Leader with a strong passion for leading people. This is a hybrid role that offers a good balance between hands-on code contribution and leadership. The ideal candidate is someone who has the ability to lead a small team of engineers to achieve product delivery goals and help them grow their careers.

In this role, you'll wear multiple hats depending on the situation - engineer, leader, coach, mentor. This role is hugely impactful in helping shape Fleetio's engineering culture. If you enjoy making a positive impact on people and building great products, we highly encourage you to apply.

This is a remote role and is open to candidates based in the United States, Canada, or Mexico.

    What you'll be doing
    • You'll work closely with Product Managers, Designers, and other leaders to ensure your team has clear goals and direction.

    • You'll participate in team meetings as necessary (business and technical). We place great emphasis on NOT conducting ineffective, unnecessary meetings and are an advocate for focus times. At the same time, we expect our leaders to attend, participate in team meetings that we believe are important for the flow of information that will help them (as a leader) provide timely context to your team.
    • You'll help with recruiting efforts by participating in the hiring manager screen, leading team interviews, and ensuring the team provides meaningful feedback.
    • You'll have a strong voice in the development and planning processes, so senior-level experience is key.

      What's in it for you
      • Be a part of an incredible team of "A" players who go above and beyond to make Fleetio a successful company. You will build software used by people all around the world. So many different types of companies and organizations operate a fleet each day, and Fleetio is a good fit for most of them (it's a huge market).
      • Work remotely (within the United States, Canada or Mexico), or at our Birmingham, AL HQ. Over 80% of our Engineering Team works remotely (including our CTO), and we have promoted a strong remote working culture since the beginning (2012)
      • We place great emphasis on work/life balance. We have families and hobbies and know you do, too.
