Backend Team Lead - Package.ai

Backend Team Lead

We are looking for a brilliant Backend Team Lead to join our team and take the leading role in the development of our platform.

The position we are offering is to be a core member of engineering and the company as a whole. Our R&D group is still small and every member makes a huge difference. 

You’ll be responsible for all things back end – technology and tools selection, owning the backend lifecycle from architecture and design to deployment and monitoring, recruiting, leading and mentoring team members to enable their growth and success as developers, solving diverse technological challenges, and delighting our customers with a great product.

About You

When you think of yourself, you know you are:

  • Confident – you love responsibility and challenges
  • Independent – you don’t need (or want) to be spoon-fed everything
  • Passionate about coding – you love software engineering and view it as a craft
  • Want to make a big impact – you find that being one of 100, 200 (or more …) people in R&D is not fulfilling enough, and too much “big company” process is boring you

If you read the above description and found yourself saying “this is me”, read on.

About Us

Retail is rapidly evolving into E-commerce and is becoming more relationship based than transactional. 

At package.ai, we’re building the future of how retailers communicate with their customers across all phases of the customer lifecycle. From the first chat on the website, through the post-purchase experience of delivery/pickup and through to the next sale.

Our mission-critical B2B SaaS platform is used by retailers of all sizes every-day to manage their customer interactions and fulfillment operations. Our revolutionary platform provides consumers with an excellent experience, while improving efficiency and sales for our customers. 

We are obsessive about customer satisfaction and believe that the way to succeed is to provide great value to our customers. The rave reviews and recommendations we get from them are living proof of the success of this mindset.

We’re a small team who’s achieving the impossible. We cultivate a fast-paced, fun and positive work environment. We work in a flexible fashion (Office / Home), believing in productivity instead of hours on the clock. Our team members have a “do what it takes to get it done” mentality and enjoy a high level of independence, mentoring and real-world impact.

Opportunity
