Working directly with the country’s largest beverage alcohol distributors, SevenFifty’s Technical Lead, Web Development will work on the SaaS platform that helps our customers embrace innovation. Our newest colleague will join a tight-knit group of folks who crave ownership and change rather than rigid structure and micromanagement.

If you love technology, the beverage industry, and lots of autonomy, this role is for you.

This person can be located in the New York area or throughout the United States (working remotely) and they will report to our Engineering Manager, Web & Mobile.

Learn more below.

We're looking for an experienced full-stack developer to join our 15-person engineering team and lead development for a small squad. The squad you’ll be joining is currently two other engineers and a project manager working with stakeholders across the business, and a cross-team designer as needed. They work in two related Rails apps, with a combination of classic server-rendered Rails functionality, and React components on top of Rails. We use Solr for search, Postgres on Amazon RDS for data, and run our web apps on Heroku.

This role entails a mix of hands on development and technical leadership. You'll be the technical representative for your squad of engineers, taking the lead on architectural decisions and quality development practices across the team. We expect you to be team-oriented and be comfortable mentoring, but we do not expect you to directly manage other engineers. 

We transitioned to being geo-distributed in 2019, and communicate primarily using Slack, Zoom, and GitHub. Prior to COVID we convened about twice a year in person, and look forward to being able to reinstate our Team Week tradition.

What you’ll do:

  • Lead project breakdowns and code review for feature development
  • Contribute directly to feature development
  • Foster communication and collaboration within the squad
  • Promote sustainable development practices on the squad, leading by example
  • Manage technical risk, and amplify awareness of it
  • Advocate for and organize the addressing of squad-specific technical debt
  • Support your squad's product manager in stakeholder reviews and roadmap planning

What you'll have:

  • 5+ years working on multiple teams developing web apps, and running them in production for thousands of users
  • You’ve built web apps using server-rendered and API/single-page-app approaches
  • Strong collaboration and mentorship skills
  • A track record of improving and maintaining complex systems
  • Clear and concise written communication ability

What you do not need:

  • A college degree
  • A high GPA or SAT score
  • An address in or around New York City
  • To drink – many of our colleagues don’t

  2. Acknowledge our shortcomings and try to do improve our company and our industry.
  3. Elevate BIPOC voices in our industry publication, SevenFifty Daily
  4. Do not discriminate against candidates or employees on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, veteran status, disability status, or socioeconomic status. 
  5. Have regular, sometimes awkward, conversations about diversity, equity, and inclusion in our employee resource group, SevenFifty Community.
  6. Are honest and recognize that our company isn’t as diverse as it should be. We’re trying to change that.

An Insider's view of SevenFifty

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Anyone who has worked in restaurants knows that there's a specific kind of comradery, not to mention a sense of humor, that comes out of that environment. What I like about SevenFifty is that we share some of that sensibility. We work hard, we support each other, we like to have fun, and we have an appreciation for the industry we serve!

Jacob

Engineer

What projects are you most excited about?

I enjoy the consistency in my colleagues and what they teach me on a daily basis. There are always unforeseen challenges on the support side, but when you have a great team to help you, those challenges turn into things you look forward to solving. There’s always something to new to learn — that’s one of the reasons I enjoy working at SevenFifty.

Marcus

Customer Support Specialist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

We are modernizing an antiquated industry with technology by providing efficiencies that free-up the supply chain and enhance human relationships in a $50 billion space. I am fortunate to work with people that are at the top of their respective skillset (marketing, data analysis, engineering, journalism) and have a damn good time doing it.

Melissa

Senior Director, Distributor Platform

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

As a remote company, we work really hard to find ways to connect with our team.

We hold office hours; run monthly "Ask Me Anything" sessions on a range of topics (our industry, equity); gather for an All-Hands meeting each month; do small group sessions on topics like mental health in the workplace; have our ERG "SF Community."

Erin

Vice President, People Operations

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I work remotely in North Carolina, but I'm more connected to my teammates at SevenFifty than I've been to former coworkers with whom I've shared an office. I'm accessible throughout the day on slack and Zoom, and we meet monthly during all-hands + quarterly in-person at team week.
