My client, a leading global trading marketplace, is urgently looking to add a Team Lead adept with JavaScript development to their engineering team in New York City.

This role is suited for someone currently devoted to hands-on development/programming, who has leadership/management experience, seeking a full-time opportunity, and who does not require visa sponsorship to work in the US.

This role provides an opportunity to be a key team member developing a new platform for the company.  The company boasts a several-decade-strong track record, a global footprint, and strong upward mobility.

You'll be in charge of ensuring the web UI of their state-of-the-art trading platform is maintained and delivered on time.  Although the role requires you to manage/mentor a small team of JavaScript developers, you'll still remain hands-on with programming as well.  You'll also have to be comfortable collaborating regularly with members of other teams such as product, QA, and the back-end engineering group. 

Candidates should:

  • Have at least 6 years development experience using JavaScript with a focus on complex, single-page web applications.
