Lead Developer - Edmonton, AB

IronSight is seeking a lead developer to take charge of our rapidly growing enterprise software. IronSight is a field service dispatching and tracking software geared toward energy producers and their service companies. It is currently being utilized with one of the world’s largest companies, who has plans to implement the innovation throughout their global fields over the next 6 months. There are also countless potential customers in this market still relying on pen&paper and labor-intensive processes to handle their complicated logistics.

The founders of IronSight have limited software background, and have relied on the expertise of 3rd party companies, guiding the development as project managers and subject-matter experts – we all have background in coordinating field services. We have reached a point where we need to find in-house engineering to join our team. We are looking for an entrepreneur who can take our backlog of planned features and produce the code and hire additional team members required to make them a reality. A full backend rewrite is required as the proof-of-concept code was initially written in a less than ideal language. The successful candidate capable of taking charge of an evolving software can expect equity-based compensation and an industry-leading salary.

The successful candidate must possess:

  • degree in Computer Science or Computer Engineering
  • expertise with modern web design and frontend Android and iOS apps including but not limited to C#, MySQL, PHP, Apache, nginx, HTML5, CSS, JavaScript Java, Objective-C
  • background in entrepreneurial endeavors and making new ideas a reality
  • ability to lead and create a successful company culture– our backlog of items and speed at which we need to move may become too demanding, which will necessitate adding and leading new team members
  • workaholic tendencies – we want someone to eat, sleep, and breathe this product, after all, you will be an owner
  • familiarity with agile development
  • ability to rapidly fix unexpected problems that may arise in the field – our software controls the logistics for hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of field services each day and prolonged downtime could be catastrophic
  • interpersonal skills to consult with a variety of customers, from blue-collar to white-collar
  • ability to travel worldwide to handle deployments with new customers
  • minimum 5 years of related experience

The position will be demanding and requires top-level talent, so here’s what we can offer:

  • vested equity position
  • industry-leading salary
  • benefits package
  • office in Edmonton – the setup and location are up to you
  • state-of-the art hardware
  • flexible deadline-based work hours
  • IronSight business cards with “Co-Founder” title next to your name... we are looking for a partner to strike while the Iron is hot, pun intended
