Software Engineering Manager


19-10 Total Expert Were Hiring

One of the searches I am working on in my project with Total Expert is a Software Engineering Manager.

Below is the job description but first I have some informal notes from my conversation with Brenda Simons, Sr Director of Engineering, to whom this role reports.

  • We’re looking for someone who: is very detail oriented, very technical… more technical than business, can thrive on controlled chaos, can create their own path if something is not already in place, figure out the process and do it with the team.

  • Having been a fast-growing startup we are finding opportunity to be more mature in our processes.

  • You like unstructured things, a smart team with ideas and are a developer at heart.

  • We move quick and are gradually moving faster. Currently code goes into production three times a month.

  • Leadership team is CTO, VP of Engineering and 2 directors of which Brenda is one and this person will report to her. For Brenda, as long as results are what is expected, if “X” needs to get done, she doesn’t care how you get there. If a certain way works better… cool. Do it. You have autonomy. Saying I don’t know is OK as long as it’s followed with let’s go figure it out.

  • You have a servant leadership style. You love your teams, will go to bat for them and get needless things out of their way.

Senior Software Engineer


Full Time Minnesota Senior Software Engineer Job

Daugherty Business Solutions

At a lot of organizations, it is hard to stand out in a sea of developers. Everyone is working on the same projects; creating and testing as fast and efficiently as humanly possible. Don’t get lost in the crowd.

Team Daugherty offers developers the opportunity to work on something different. From one project to the next, engineers at Daugherty are constantly creating, testing and implementing solutions for our clients, and no two client projects are the same. With every project comes the unique opportunity to showcase your skills, learn something new and teach others the skills you’ve already mastered.

We are looking for mid-senior level Java and JavaScript Software Engineers who have experience with a broad range of languages, frameworks, libraries and tools who can adapt to new client environments and learn new technologies quickly.

What type of developer fits the Daugherty profile? I could tell you, or I could let some of Team Daugherty do it in their own words.

“Prior to joining Daugherty, I thought I was at the top of my game. I was a Lead Engineer and Systems Architect developing collaboration and decision-support software for our nation's intelligence agencies (CIA, DIA, NSA, etc.). When I joined Daugherty, I found out quickly that I was among peers from whom I had a lot to learn. That was an awesome feeling!"
- Rob Jacobs, SA&E LOS Leaders, Sr. Principal, Solution Architect

Now, imagine yourself:

  • Solving interesting business and technology problems using modern languages and frameworks.
  • Being a member of a supportive team balancing beautiful code with pragmatic delivery, one iteration to the next, with the support of those around you.
  • Leaning on a team of talented software engineers and colleagues for help when you get stuck
  • Gathering and collaborating with team members who are as interested learning as you are: lunch-and-learns, developer summits, Slack communities, Safari Books Online, Pluralsight!
  • Leading a team of developers and analysts throughout the entire product lifecycle.
  • Having Fun: Hack-nights, board game and RPG nights, geek movie nights, happy hours, etc!
