Hi! 👋 Nice to meet you!
“Great things in business are never done by one person ; they’re done by a team of people.” – Steve Jobs
If you are a latin-american Freelance Fullstack Developer who has experience leading a team and is passionate about making people better, instead of just telling them what to do, and if you are looking forward to working with renowned US clients, I suggest you keep reading…☺
Vertrical is an international custom development partner for digital health pioneers with a 100% remote setup. We design and build web & mobile solutions for digital health and pharma scale-ups and enterprises. So we combine health and technology throughout the world, which is pretty cool, right?
As an experienced Freelance Lead Fullstack Developer you will be leading one of our Engineering teams and working together with multiple departments. Regarding the work, it’s a 100% remote job and our teams are sized in a way they are flexible enough to work at comforting and happy pace.
But what does leading a team mean for us?
We are big fans of new leadership, which is based on trust and appreciation between manager and employee. A good leader should take responsibility for the personal and professional development of their team members, ensuring that they are in a positive, learning environment which helps to get the best out of them.
As a lead you should be the first person that a team member can turn to when they require help, may it be for technical or personal reasons.
We would definitely expect you to organize your team which also includes innovate with your own processes and sharing your ideas with the wider company and also maintaining healthy teamwork.
Communication is an important topic for us. Not only the way of communicating with each other but a lead should also be the pivot of communication between their team and the rest of the business. You should be able to handle minor issues by yourselves and escalate bigger issues where necessary. This also means: Be available for the client regarding any questions and concerns.
Meetings. You will be required to lead daily meetings and encourage involvement from your team. Your role will be a part of the architectural decisions of the product and translate product requirements to technical solutions. Your role should aim to be involved in any planning, refinement, and evaluation sessions for their projects, and convey useful information to any developers who were unable to attend along with helping team members on technical decisions. This role will also be responsible for organizing team sprints together with PO and team, along with team development and reviews.
What about code?
Of course you will be involved in the development work and attempt to complete tickets to try and remain in touch with the codebase.
Sounds good? Read on and see what else we have to offer!

What we wish you bring to the table:
