DPReview is hiring! Software development manager
DPReview is hiring! We're looking to add a Software Development Manager to our Seattle-based team. Bring your creativity, passion and talent to help us build the next generation of our web and mobile experiences. Responsibilities include building and managing our team of engineers, listening to audience feedback and driving DPReview's technical vision. See all of the details below.
Software Development Manager
DPReview.com is seeking a talented, passionate, creative developer to help us craft the look, feel, and functionality of the world's most popular digital camera website. The right candidate will be capable of defining the technical vision for the product, as well as leading the team in achieving that vision.
Our engineers work closely with a small in-house product management and editorial team. Fast, scrappy development and testing, combined with regular (sometimes daily) deployment ensures that no one gets the chance to fall into a rut and that everyone has the opportunity to help shape projects from concept to delivery. You will listen to our audience, help drive our goals, and leverage our unique position in the photographic industry, and to constantly strive for better, smarter ways to deliver the content, services, and community tools that have made the site the success it is.
You'll be excited by the opportunity to build rich interactive user experiences on a large-scale public facing website. Your core focus will be to build the next generation of DPReview web and mobile experiences, including shopping and comparison tools for photographic gear, community and social features focused on photography enthusiasts, and special products in support of Amazon teams. DPReview has enough traffic to pose interesting performance challenges, so a solid knowledge of SQL, database design, and optimization techniques is important.
While we are part of Amazon, DPReview has its own unique culture, with a small but cohesive team of editorial staff and developers. You'll feel like you're at a small startup, with lean, product-focused processes, but with all the upsides of working for a large company.
DPReview.com runs primarily on .NET, but any solid experience with web technologies is sufficient. Also, we collaborate with other Amazon teams to develop features and widgets for Amazon.com, which provides the unique opportunity to show your work to a much larger audience than DPReview’s millions of daily visitors.
