Lead Developer

Short and sweet: You'll be leading our entire development effort. You're a top 20% full-stack developer (specifically react and laravel) who is even better at managing a team. According to our advisors, we're the fastest growing software company in St. Louis and are needing someone who can help us keep up with the growth.

We're looking for someone who is interested in the excitement of a startup but confidence of an established company. We're a startup that is changing the floral industry. We have three development team members on the team that you would be leading. We need someone who loves to code as well as loves people and helping lead a team to growth. You can be in the top 20% of programmers in skill level but you must be in the top 5% in ability to work with people and get tasks done.


You'll be programming and building new tools. You'll be interfacing with our team in Bulgaria at 7:30 am CST every morning to look at tasks for the day. You'll be working most closely with our other development "quarterback", our Founder, and our product team. You'll work in the office with our marketing, sales, and customer success team. 

Why this is a beautiful opportunity:

You make a dynamic difference and would be the leading voice for development in the company. You’ll walk-in with one of the best equity opportunities available for any company that you'll find. We’re revenue-funded so you’re leading a team that has a legitimate and proven product growing like gangbuster. The company has a customers, has direction, a competent product team, and a really cool product. You’ll have an incredible team of some of the hardest workers you’ve ever met. Hope you brought your saddle because you're jumping onto a rocket.

Some of our weaknesses:

We’re in the tween phase as a company and have plenty of room to mature. We have problems administratively that we’ve never had to face before and are learning through. We have some pretty clean code but we lack great documentation so you’d be somewhat starting from scratch there.


  1. 5+ years experience in a professional development environment

  2. 2+ years experience in a development leadership capacity

  3. 1+ year of experience with each of 2 or more separate company’s development teams

  4. Ability to thrive in a midwest culture

  5. A penchant for Code Documentation


  1. Experience with CI/CD

  2. Experience with docker or environments

  3. Having grown with a company of less than 10 employees to a company of over 50 employees

  4. A moderately strong knowledge of web-app technologies used across the board

  5. Experience with AWS or Google Cloud for setting up scalable infrastructure


  1. Salary 100k-130k

  2. Founder’s Equity

  3. Health insurance

  4. Dental Insurance

  5. Unlimited PTO

The position is based in St. Louis.
