Our client is looking for a Magento Architect, Technical Director or Development Lead who’s not afraid to get his or her hands dirty with some active coding. Your main responsibility will be leading development across multiple projects with small teams of programmers, sometimes including offshore teams.
As a Magento Architect, you’ll be analyzing business and creative requirements to determine the technical approach for projects while working directly with developers to bring those projects to life.
You’ll need a firm grasp of and be able to use the latest frameworks and technologies—all while providing assistance and mentorship to juniors on the team. On larger and more technically complex projects, you’ll work more closely with the team to ensure development is considerate of the technical approach and that all aspects of the project, such as security, performance, usability and aesthetics, are up to industry standards. On smaller projects, you’ll lead the actual development with a Development team, laying the groundwork, mentoring and giving code reviews.
As a part of our Technical Leadership team, you’ll be expected to help strategize approaches for new business on pitches and new work requests. You’ll also have the opportunity to impact the way we make work, both on the Development team and within the agency.
