In this role, you will be the technical lead on projects, working very closely with our clients and internal teams, from pitch to planning to delivery. Pitch to delivery for us means being responsible for establishing technical architecture on client projects, determining resource allocation, and being involved in ideation for execution of the client’s vision. You’ll manage an interactive development team and lead by example, architecting solutions, setting and evolving development policies and standards as technology evolves, performing code reviews, and mentoring/training team members, all while maintaining the technical proficiency to step into the trenches of coding and development if necessary in order to meet deadlines. You will report directly to the Technology Director, and liaise between client-based and in-house technology teams, project & account managers and other business units, with a focus on pinpointing the intersection between technical, business, and creative goals, and the team’s capabilities in an effort to create immersive, unforgettable experiences for the client and end-user
Team
The Wondersauce dev team spans three offices, New York, Columbus, and Los Angeles, and is comprised of a range of talent focusing on both backend and frontend development.

Developers are involved on projects from day 1, collaborating with all disciplines and contributing to the overall success of a project, working closely with strategy, UX and design to come up with the best solutions for the problems at hand.
The projects that we work on span a wide range of industries and technologies -- recently we’ve built an application in Python and Angular to automate social management, a Wordpress multisite for a well-known CPG brand’s B2C and B2B sites, and are creating an atomic-design-driven pattern library for an ecommerce brand in the fitness space. Aside from client projects, we are excited about experimenting with new technologies like voice, AI and AR, focusing on making all of our sites ADA compliant so we can help make the web accessible for more people, as well as working as a team to create a library of reusable code to help speed up our workflow and knowledge share across projects.
