Jellyvision is hiring an Engineering Team Lead

Jellyvision’s headquarters is in Chicago, and, post-COVID, many of us will be returning to the Chicago offices (by choice, not requirement -- our philosophy is “Flexible First”). But this position is also eligible for work by a remote employee out of CA, FL, GA, IL, KY, MA, MI, MN, NY, NC, OH, OR, PA, TX, UT, WA, or WI.

Who we are

We’re the proud parents of ALEX®, an interactive employee communications platform that makes choosing (and using) employee benefits easier and more enjoyable. Our credo is a simple one: be helpful. And we think the best way to achieve that is with a staff that reflects the vast range of ideas, perspectives, and experiences of the millions of people who use our products.

How you’ll help

Jellyvision’s Engineering organization prides itself on building cross-functional teams capable of solving a variety of technical problems, while also providing an environment for developers to grow their skills. As a Team Lead, you'll provide leadership for a cross-functional team consisting of junior and senior application and test engineers. You’ll use your technical experience and interpersonal savvy to collaborate with your team on writing and shipping straightforward and maintainable code, while reserving time to guide and support the team, both as a unit and as individuals.

What you’ll do

Our Team Leads are equally as excited about writing quality, clean code, as they are about helping grow and mentor their team. A strong Team Lead at Jellyvision will help their team navigate technical, interpersonal, and cross-team challenges. Responsibilities include:

  • Design and implement straightforward solutions to problems

  • Write maintainable, reliable, and performant code

  • Participate in thoughtful and constructive code reviews

  • Help translate business requirements into actionable, efficient software

  • Manage 2-3 direct reports, including regular 1-1’s

  • Coach, mentor, and pair with less experienced team members

  • Foster an inclusive team environment

  • Identify and create learning opportunities for direct reports to learn and grow

  • Advocate for the team’s time and developer experience

  • Collaborate with product and creative staff, as well as other engineering teams

  • Evaluate build vs. buy decisions to help ensure tech savvy decisions

Experience & skills you’ll need

  • 3+ years of experience developing and delivering software solutions in a team environment

  • Experience with both standing up net new products, as well as developing new functionality on existing products and systems

  • Experience working with Agile methodologies: you understand that Agile is a set of principles, not a fixed process, and can advocate for adapting those principles to fit the team’s needs

  • Proven communication skills, showing the ability to collaborate within and across teams

  • A commitment to mentoring and teaching other, less experienced team members (previous managing experience a plus, but not required)

  • An excellent giver and receiver of constructive code review feedback

  • Docker and DevOps skills (not required, but definitely a plus)

  • Experienced developing software with Git (familiarity with git-flow would be another bonus)

  • Horrified at the thought of working without Source Control

In addition, looking for experience with:

  • Designing and developing full-stack web applications using Ruby, JavaScript and modern front-end frameworks like Next.js, React, Vue, or Angular

  • Unit testing and test automation

  • Relational databases

  • AWS (DevOps experience is a bonus)

  • Containerization / Docker


  • Communicates Effectively

  • Decision Quality

  • Develops Talent

  • Tech Savvy

  • Drives Engagement

  • Manages Conflict

  • Persuades

Anything else?

Jellyvision is committed to continuous evolution and to fostering a more diverse and inclusive workplace where everyone is welcomed, valued, and respected. It doesn’t matter your race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, gender identity, sex, or country of origin...we just want amazing people who are willing to grow along with us.

Thanks for your interest in Jellyvision!
