Lead Software Engineer


Who we are

In 2015 Kahuso launched a groundbreaking platform that matches executive talent with full-time, contract, board and advisory opportunities. Our powerful algorithms do all the heavy lifting and provide accurate, immediate matches based on a wide variety of parameters. Our platform saves time, money and effort while ensuring the best talent is selected for a company’s specific needs. In the world of fast-paced changes intelligently connecting candidates to opportunities is no exception. Kahuso uses cutting edge technology to give companies the leverage they need to reach out to executive talent as quickly as possible, giving our customers an advantage over their competition.

With our solution receiving positive feedback and growing demand after being live in market for a year, we are working on our next release. Join us for our next phase of growth.

Why this is exciting - technically speaking that is?

Right now, we are growing and we need Developers who will use React.js and Ruby On Rails to work with the CTO and  co-founders to build out the platform including:

  • Building new features including matching algorithms, notifications and payments.
  • Improving the robustness and scalability of our live platform
  • Leading the team
  • Contributing to technical designs
  • Leading code reviews

Here’s what our new Lead Software Engineer will do:

  • Be a leader.  This is a role for someone who’s currently leading a development team or is ready for that next step. As the company grows your team will also grow.
  • Be a proficient coder. You'll still be coding full-time but will also be taking the lead on the implementation, the quality of the code, and the overall quality of output.
  • Be an expert communicator.  We have a remote team currently spread across the GTA and parts of Brazil.  The majority of our work is done via Slack and email communication.  We don’t assign tasks and say “see you in 3 days” - we’re always talking, collaborating and working to meet our goals.

And, here’s what we need in our new Lead Software Engineer:

  • The experience.  It’s likely that you have at least  4 years of experience building software at a senior level.
  • The startup mindset.  We need someone with experience working in an Agile environment in a small company or startup.
  • The technical expertise:
    • Experience working with Ruby on Rails
    • You have done some production level work in either React.js, AngularJS, or another javascript framework
    • Experience working with PostgreSQL would be a plus
    • Experience managing a cloud-based environment would also be a plus
  • The passion.  You have a passion for writing extremely performant and efficient code.
  • The leadership skills.  You have led a team or are ready to step up to the next level.
