Back End Software Engineer - Technical Lead


Full Time Minnesota Tech Job

We are a rapidly growing digital agency seeking a talented, driven individual to come along for the ride. We’re looking for someone to do more than just fit in; we’re looking for a Back End Software Engineer and Technical Lead to make us better.

  • Help establish best practices for documentation procedures and protocols, including functional and technical requirements and user stories.
  • Adhere to our practices of time tracking, task management and project management to provide a high degree of visibility for your work.
  • Remain up-to-date with software versions of Irish Titan development packages, platforms and tools.
  • Integrate user-facing elements developed by front-end developers.
