Technical Lead Engineer

SHAPE A RAPIDLY SCALING INDUSTRY. 

 

DraftKings is growing quickly and we’re looking for a Technical Lead to direct our engineering teams and influence our product and technical roadmaps. This is more than a technical position, though.
You’ll be collaborating across teams, informing our business decisions, and creatively finding solutions to all of our scaling challenges. Sound good to you? Join us.

 

WHAT YOU’LL DO AS A TECHNICAL LEAD ENGINEER:

  • Lead and collaborate daily with developers and QAs across the full software development lifecycle;

  • Encourage good engineering practices and pushes for technical excellence

  • Heavily supports the software architect with the tech debt backlog

  • Work with Product Management, Architects, Delivery, SRE, Management, and others to enable the team to move forward

  • Develop and maintain documentation

WHAT YOU’LL DO AS A TECHNICAL LEAD ENGINEER:

  • Solid experience in designing commercial software products. Our systems have high load and real-time data processing.

  • Years of experience with any object oriented programming language, preferably with .NET frameworks.

  • Some experience as a key technical contributor on similar position is required. If you do not have any experience leading but you have solid experience in distributed systems and ambition to play significant role in the team you can still be a good fit.

  • Experience with pub/sub systems and good understanding of messaging and streaming systems because we rely on lot on these.

  • Docker and K8s are technologies that we use, so it would be great if you have some experience with them or at least understand what advantages they bring.

  • Ability to communicate externally and internally in a constructive and positive way.
