Actively Hiring

Boulevard provides the first and only client experience platform for appointment-based, self-care businesses. We empower our customers to give their clients more of the magical moments that matter most.

Our team values and celebrates our diverse backgrounds. Being open about who we are and what we do allows us to do the best work of our lives. We believe in equal opportunity for all, and you should too.

Come do the best work of your life at Boulevard.

As the Staff Software Engineer, Lead at Boulevard, you will be responsible for leading your squad in the evolution and execution of your squad’s charter in partnership with Product and Design. Your commitment to the customer experience and strong ownership of the quality and integrity of your squad’s work sets a high standard for the squad. Working closely with Engineering, Product Manager, Designer, and Product Marketing Manager, you will be crucial in making informed product decisions, building exceptional products, and achieving significant business outcomes. Your dedication to developing scalable, performant, and maintainable systems goes hand in hand with creating a motivating environment for everyone to excel in their work. The ideal candidate will be a seasoned professional with a proven track record of architecting solutions and driving technical excellence in cloud infrastructure development.

What you’ll do here

  • Lead the squad, focusing on strategic planning and execution, ensuring alignment with the company’s vision and objectives.
  • Own and lead the technical implementation and architecture of scalable, performant, maintainable squad initiatives that meet evolving business needs.
  • Foster a collaborative and inclusive squad environment for your reports, setting clear expectations and providing regular feedback to support individual growth and squad excellence.
  • Lead and mentor engineers in career development, encouraging skill enhancement and ownership opportunities.
  • Establish and monitor key performance indicators (KPIs) for software quality and squad productivity, implementing strategies to meet or exceed targets.
  • Collaborate with software engineers to integrate infrastructure services into our applications seamlessly, prioritizing developer efficiency and workflow optimization.
  • Champion the maintenance of an observable, secure, and efficient codebase, addressing technical debt proactively to ensure the platform’s reliability and performance.
  • Actively contribute to improving our observability and security posture.
  • Ensure high availability and fault tolerance of our systems while also considering the impact on developer workflows and productivity.
  • Optimize performance and cost-effectiveness of our cloud infrastructure with a keen eye on minimizing developer overhead and maximizing efficiency.
  • Drive architectural decisions and provide thought leadership to the team, emphasizing solutions that empower developers and enable rapid iteration. E.g., modularizing Terraform.
  • Participate in Incident Commander on-call rotation, where you will lead incident response by guiding the response towards resolution, communicating to stakeholders, and identifying post-incident improvements.

What you’ll need to thrive

  • Experience
    • 10+ years of experience in software engineering, with a focus on infrastructure development and cloud architecture.
    • Proven track record of designing and maintaining infrastructure on AWS, with a demonstrated focus on improving developer productivity.
    • Experience with containerization technologies (e.g., Docker, ECS) and infrastructure as code tools such as Terraform or CloudFormation, with a focus on optimizing developer experiences.
    • Strong proficiency in at least one programming language (e.g., Python, Java, Go). Experience in Elixir is a plus.
    • Extensive experience in architecting and implementing complex systems.
  • CS Foundations: Ability to make sound decisions and tradeoffs in design and implementation, appropriately anticipating scale, maintenance, and overall operational feasibility of solutions.
  • Strong Communicator: strong verbal, written, and interpersonal communication skills. You know your audience and can communicate effectively with technical and non-technical audiences.
  • Collaborative: Deep partnership with your product, design, and marketing, constantly collaborating to ensure we progress towards the desired outcomes, maintaining healthy engagement with peers and stakeholders across R&D for cross-functional initiatives.
  • Ownership: Able to lead large initiatives and roadmaps by partnering with Product, Design, and other stakeholders to define and scope smaller deliverables that yield incremental value to the business and customers.
  • Autonomy: Ability to move things forward in the face of ambiguity, operating effectively in decision-making while clearly articulating risks, trade-offs, and ensuring proper visibility to key stakeholders and the squad.
  • Technical & Leadership Skills: You have a balance of both technical and leadership strengths. You guide sound technical decisions within the squad, as well as empower your direct reports to autonomously create significant impact.
  • Forward Thinker: Demonstrated ability to set strategy for evolving systems to best support long-term objectives while still delivering incremental value in the now.
