What we're looking for
We're looking for tech leads to lead student teams in developing and shipping creative solutions for our nonprofit clients. As a tech lead, you will work closely with a project manager to ensure the success of the technical aspects of a JumboCode project throughout the year.
JumboCode values passion for nonprofit work, learning, and teamwork. We look for empathetic and eager individuals that want to give back to the community, expand their skillsets, and contribute their knowledge and abilities to the team.
Please note that JumboCode projects run throughout the academic school year (year long commitments).
Communicate and work with a project manager, a designer, and a team of student developers.
Attend ~2 weekly meetings
Work well on a team
Solve technical problems, including guiding implementations/architecture, and addressing bugs and problems.
Work with a project manager to:
Develop a tech stack
Guide the team through all of the technical/engineering challenges a large-scale project may face over the course of its development
You should have a relatively strong base of experience in the relevant area (web and/or mobile development; project-dependent). Ideally, you have enough knowledge to be a strong and reliable resource for developers who may just be starting out. As with other roles, passion and a genuine eagerness to learn and contribute are huge!
JumboCode is an organization dedicated to helping non-profits by providing them free custom technology to aid their services. JumboCode is based out of Tufts University, and works primarily with non-profits in the greater Boston area. JumboCode was founded in 2015, and is 100% run by volunteers.
We have two main goals encompassing our work:
To support local communities in social and civic endeavors
To empower students with the technological skills to be impactful
