In addition to managing and improving day-to-day operations of the software development team, the Lead Developer, in collaboration with the Mobis Product Manager, will be responsible for the overall design of the next version of Mobis, which will incorporate several major design changes and enhancements, including

  • improved system security
  • improvements to several APIs for mobile banking and interaction with banks

  • experience with web applications for enterprise
  • knowledge of PHP/Laravel and object-oriented design
  • familiarity with accounting

We encourage candidates who have some but not all of the above qualifications to apply. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are essential.
