Full Time / Anywhere in the United States
GetThru is hiring a Lead Engineer to support 3-5 of our ~15 engineers. This is a “manager who codes” role: that is, it’s a management role foremost but does require active web application development skills for code review and pair programming. There will also be opportunities to work directly on software development “off the critical path” as time allows.
Our software is built using Elixir and the Phoenix web framework. This role is open both to experienced leaders who are new to Elixir development and to experienced Elixir developers who are new to management: either will receive appropriate training, mentorship, and support. (Those who have experience in both are also welcome and encouraged to apply, of course.) The role will be a part of the Engineering team and report to the Vice President of Engineering.
GetThru’s mission is to empower organizations to connect authentically with their audiences at scale while building a sustainable company committed to progressive social change. Our tools have been used by more than 2,000 organizations to send over 1 billion text messages and make more than 500 million phone calls for voter contact, volunteer recruitment, fundraising, polling, and more. We are an all-remote company with 40+ full time staff spread across 14 states. Prior to the pandemic, we had a once-yearly all staff retreat, and held semi-annual in-person team meetings (e.g., sales, support, engineering). And while our roots are in progressive politics, we love partnering with organizations of all kinds that share our passion for creating a better world.
