Wunderkind is seeking a Full Stack Lead Software Engineer with experience in Golang and familiarity with React.

Who You Are:

A solution-oriented and problem solving mindset are ways that you could be described. You are someone that is not afraid to dive into what you don’t know and will just find a way to “figure it out.” You are comfortable with tasks ranging from modifying tables in a database to building APIs to adding a button on a webpage.

You believe “The Right Way” to build something is the quickest path to delivery, leveraging available software libraries and frameworks, without feeling the need to build everything on your own.

You are comfortable working in a fast-paced environment that may involve context shifts and changes in priorities.

You’re curious and explore new tools, understand the technical landscape and think AI is an enabler to unlock greater potential.

Your success and self-reward comes from owning and developing a true End-to-End experience.

What You’ll Do:

  • Lead and inspire a team of engineers, fostering a collaborative and high-performance work environment.
  • Work closely with product managers, frontend engineers, data scientists, and other stakeholders to deliver high-quality features and improvements.
  • Conduct regular code reviews, providing constructive feedback to ensure code quality and adherence to best practices.
  • Stay updated with the latest industry trends and technologies, continuously improving our technology stack and development processes.
  • Evaluate where AI can be leveraged to introduce real value into products with generative AI or complex decisioning models.
  • Work with and across various teams and product verticles.


  • Minimum of 7 years of experience in software engineering with at least 3 years in a lead or senior role.
  • Experience in backend development using Golang.
  • Experience in front end development using React.
  • Strong knowledge of microservices architecture, RESTful APIs, and distributed systems.
  • Experience with cloud platforms (AWS, GCP, or Azure) and containerization technologies (Docker, Kubernetes).
  • Familiarity with CI/CD pipelines and DevOps practices.
  • Proven experience in leading and mentoring engineering teams, with excellent communication and collaboration skills.
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving abilities, with a keen attention to detail.
  • Experience working in technology startup or equivalent project environments
