Do you enjoy all the challenges of being a developer but want the managerial responsibilities of turning a group of talented individuals into an unstoppable coding force?

SocialChorus is hiring a Director of Engineering who will be responsible for managing a team of developers by making sure individuals and the product are constantly increasing velocity. This is a great opportunity for a full-stack, Ruby and JavaScript savvy, well-organized, people person. You are expected to write code 60% of the time, and for the other 40% you will recruit, manage, create platform stability and maintain product processes.
At SocialChorus your opinion matters. We are a close-knit team of 11 developers who are passionate about coding. We have created a platform that gives advocates who love brands the ability to share their enthusiasm with online community.

The Director of Engineering will work with the PM and CTO in growing the developer team and making sure the following tasks are completed:
* Improve the platform using Ruby and JavaScript skill,
* Focus on software design as a craft, while delivering high velocity stories,
* Single responsibility principle from app to CSS,

We do agile (XP), test-driven development and pair program 85% of the time. We believe that pair programming is the best way to create clean, simple, efficient code quicker. It also allows devs to enjoy a life outside of work. SocialChorus believes in constantly improving on one's skill and offers opportunities for developers to attend courses, conferences (in & out of the Bay Area) and talk to experts who specialize in certain fields, like Sandi Metz.

This is a full-time, salaried position offering stock options, paid vacation, and benefits: medical, dental and 401k. We are located on 3rd and Market Street, which allows you to easily access transportation and great food. We actively promote diversity. For the right candidate, we could help with relocations fees up to a certain amount. We encourage all qualified candidates to apply and tell us what makes you excited about coding or why SocialChorus is the next place you want to work!
