Software Development Director (SF)

San Francisco, California, United States · Software Development


Our mission at Tandem is to help our clients solve business, customer, and social challenges through a co-creative process that results in meaningful improvements in the lives of users and the effectiveness of business. And, to do so in an environment that supports us in doing the best work of our lives.

Our vision is to build a supportive, collaborative environment and empower people to do the best work of their lives. Everyone says that, though, right? The difference between Tandem and a typical tech company is that instead of bringing in snacks and a ping pong table and calling that "culture," we do the behind-the-scenes work to foster an environment where everyone teaches and everyone learns. Egos are low, and we're all genuinely passionate about seeing everyone else succeed. We do have snacks though ;)

We're looking for a Software Development Director to join the launch team in our new San Francisco office. The software development manager at Tandem has four major missions:

  1. Develop their team through hiring and growth - managing and/or participating in the hiring process and running point on the professional growth and performance management of their direct reports.
  2. Support business development in solution design - working with the local business development team to help conceive, scope, and estimate solutions for clients.
  3. Technical leadership and project oversight - ensuring that our process is followed and technical solutions are up to our standards on client projects, jumping in to be hands-on when needed.
  4. Participate in the technical direction of the company - providing feedback from the local team to the wider company leadership on ways we can improve our technical capabilities, processes, and team as well as creating and sharing your thoughts with the larger community through talks, blog posts, and events.

The environment and work at Tandem is very team-oriented, highly visible, and focused on business value. And like all team members, the Software Development Director will be expected to exemplify Tandem’s values in the execution of their work.
