Technical Lead

| Remote
Coder is looking for a technical lead to join our growing team. Maybe you haven't seen it all, but you certainly have seen a lot. At Coder, we are dedicated to keeping developers in flow — removing the obstacles that prevent them from writing code at the speed of thought. We have an amazing core technology and are always striving to make it better. If you are passionate about software engineering and engineering productivity, this is the place for you.

You will work with Golang, Kubernetes, TypeScript, React, and other advanced technologies to build the cloud developer workspace of the future. If you don't already know these technologies, we will teach you. We're looking for amazing contributors for the long-haul, and we're willing to invest in you.

You'll lead substantial projects increasing the breadth and power of the Coder platform. You'll use every skill you've gained in your career and learn even more as you design and architect major features. You'll guide other software engineers in delivering these features and join in writing, reviewing, and shipping code.

About you

  • You’ve worked as a professional software engineer for at least seven years
  • You're skilled in at least one programming language suitable for building scalable systems, e.g. C/C++, Rust, Java, Go, etc.
  • You've been a tech lead, architect, manager, or similar type of leader
  • You have a strong sense of ownership and are eager to do what it takes to ship your projects, whether it's breaking a big goal into iterations, coaching another engineer through a design, or debugging a tricky bug
  • You have significant experience with backend systems at scale, especially ones that are mission-critical and high availability
  • You are experienced and diligent in applying automated testing and writing testable code
  • You care deeply about your craft. We build to last. Our customers deploy our software on-premises, so we want to make sure we get things right the first time. And we’re building a SaaS product, so automated testing will be essential for continuous delivery.
  • You want to contribute to growing a healthy, inclusive, positive company culture
  • You want to work in a startup where your job isn’t just writing code but helping make the whole company successful
  • You want to have major impact and grow as a professional in an opportunity-rich, supportive environment

While definitely not necessary, we’ll be even more excited about you if you:

  • Know Golang and/or TypeScript
  • Have worked on enterprise applications, developer tools, and/or on-premises software
  • You have worked extensively with infrastructure technologies like Kubernetes, Nomad, or Docker
  • Like connecting directly with customers
  • Can show a Web-based portfolio or resume
  • Have worked in a continuous delivery environment

About us
Coder is building the future of software engineering. Almost every software application has moved to the cloud to take advantage of more resources, faster updates, and portability across devices, but the tools we use to build those applications are still stuck in the boxes under your desk or on your lap. Coder aims to change all that.

With Coder, you can use the same development workspace from a desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile phone. You have consistent and predictable environments, so there’s no more “it works on my machine” because it works on every machine. You can take advantage of powerful cloud servers, so you no longer have to choose between a powerful but immobile desktop or a portable but less capable laptop. You spend less time waiting and tearing your hair out and more time writing and shipping your software.

Coder has raised major backing from high-quality investors. We have amazing interest from prospective customers. The product we’re building has the potential to be used by everyone doing software development all around the world.

We are looking for excellent builders who are excited about the startup experience, passionate about productivity and flow, and eager to take on new challenges and grow with few limits. We want to build a product and a company to last. Part of our culture is a warm, friendly, and supportive environment.

Coder is headquartered in sunny and lively Austin, Texas, but we work from anywhere in the United States and Canada. We provide superb benefits so that you can stay in flow with your focus on your work without worries.


Interview Process
We believe that the interview process should be consistent and enjoyable. We prefer to have the entire process take no more than 2 full weeks. During these 2 weeks you will be able to meet a mix of individual contributors, managers, and one of our Co-Founders. If you interview for a position that requires a take home assessment, we will compensate you for your work and time spent. 

We are an Equal Opportunity EmployerAll qualified applicants will receive consideration without discrimination because of sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, marital status, race, color, age, national origin, military status, religion, or disability or any other legally protected status.

An Insider's view of Coder

What are some social events your company does?

In these time of remote work life, we're bringing on new and creative ways to get the employees to collaborate on something fun, away from work and bringing in personal interests to share with their coworkers. We have Monthly Game events with a game that represents Universal Monthly Appreciation and Recognition themes

Marcie Zimmerman

Operations Coordinator

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Remote development has historically been viewed as a subpar alternative to local development. At Coder our goal is to make your remote development workflow indistinguishable from your local workflow, providing you all the benefits of the Cloud without having to give up the tools you love to use in your day-to-day.

Jon Ayers

Senior Software Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Coder has given me the opportunity to work across many departments because of the start up environment we are in. Every day/week is different from the previous and there is always something new and exciting to tackle!

Camilla Lever

Head of Talent

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We offer unlimited PTO and encourage vacations to give to people a fresh perspective on their routines. We feel that stress is the enemy of creativity so we want our employees to feel well taken care of. Encouraging a work-life balance and having fun with the work you is something Coder puts a lot of emphasis on and it shows in the work we do.

Ammar Bandukwala

CEO and Co Founder

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We're very collaborative here at Coder. Whether we're knocking out a blog via Google Docs and Slack, or jumping in a conference room to whiteboard the solution to a problem, collaboration is at the forefront of how we operate.
