Milyli needs a Dev Team Manager to add to the growing Custom Services Team!

We strive to provide our clients with the highest level of service and support by working to understand the challenges they face and helping solve them.  We believe that giving our team a fun, casual work environment will result in the best work. If you are committed to working at the highest level to provide the best customer experience possible, we want to speak with you.

What will I be doing?

You will be making the best software consultants in the legal services industry even better.  You will cultivate incredible conditions for them to work in.  You will facilitate the selection and adoption of best practices, tools, and processes.  Solve the teams’ non-technical problems so they can focus on the technical ones.  Create opportunities for our engineers to continue learning and improve their skills.  Shout out their successes and encourage them through their setbacks.  Keep the teams focused and support them in the quest to craft the best software possible for our customers.  Keep an eye out for the toughest technical problems your teams are facing and make sure they have the resources and experience to take them on.

What do you expect from me?

You must be able to listen and learn from everyone around you in order to solve their problems the best way possible.  Keep your teams on task and excited about their work.  Organize events that promote communication and camaraderie.  Curate knowledge so that our engineers are always up to date on technology, best practices and the tools used to write excellent software.  Find out what your team members goals are, identify a path, and procure the resources needed to succeed.  Learn about the technologies and processes that your team uses and keep abreast of their challenges to better help them thrive.  If your team can’t solve a problem, help them solve it if you can, and find someone else to help when you can’t.
