Home Building Group Tech (HBG Tech) is looking for a Software Engineering Team Lead to support our Cloud and Mobile initiatives. As the Software Engineering Team Lead your time will be spent split between mentoring other software engineers and as an individual contributor on an agile Scrum team.

As the Software Engineering Team Lead, you will get to work with many divisions across Clayton while you develop deep working knowledge of AWS and other cutting-edge technologies. As a team, we recognize that strong software engineering practices and automation are required in order to be successful in the long run and we are constantly reviewing our practices and attempting to elevate them. As a member of HBG Web group, your input will be critical to setting the direction for the future software projects and implementations.

An ideal candidate will be someone that understands a leader's impact is measured through team success and not individual contribution.
