Why we need you

We are scaling up! Omise is under-going a period of sustained growth and we are expanding. As well as increasing the number of engineers we will need to bring on top-class leaders to help our teams grow and succeed. We are determined to create the best environment possible to work in, for both engineers and the customers our products assist.

As such we are on the look-out for A-player Technical Lead who promote both a bottom-up, ownership culture as well as having a very strong engineering background. Some companies decide to make a distinction between “technical” leader with some experience in “people” and. We are looking for those high-functioning individuals who have great skills at various technologies. It is through our technical leadership we can lead the technical guidelines and software development best practices in architecture, scalability robustness to our engineers.

What you will be doing

The Software Development Lead is mainly focusing the leading and initiation of technical direction and technical vision establishment. You will be hands-on with designing, building, and configuring Omise’s products and features to meet business requirements and quality standard. Your tasks involve with software development life cycle, such as coding and testing, as well as providing technical advice to team members to ensure the deliverables.

You

  • Our Software Development Lead will come from strong engineering backgrounds, usually in the form of (but not necessary to have) previous experience with high throughput / scale Internet companies.
  • Whilst our leader are not expected to produce production code regularly (management needs to avoid becoming a bottleneck in all instances). It will be important to demonstrate the very highest level of coding skills. This can be in any language, but we would expect proficiency in at least two object-orientated languages. Here at Omise, our teams own the system: not simply the code. Experience working in such an ownership driven environment will be important as will the ability to demonstrate working with hardware (Devops, monitoring, deployment, system architecture etc) in previous capacities.
  • Another “string” to the bow of any potential leaders will be exceptional experience working in agile, ideally Scrum. Candidates will be able to discuss their success with their methodologies, how success was measured and the differences it made to their respective businesses. The best candidates will not simply just be able to explain their chosen methodologies but be able to examine the methodology in detail and explain why various processes / ceremonies were successful - how did it make the team think differently? What did it optimize for? How did you explain this process to the team? Connected to agile methodology, the successful candidates will be able to explain what is meant by a top-down mentality and describe how they indeed have this mentality - complete with examples of KPIs they have either set or achieved.
  • The comprehensive ability of technical specification and business
    correspondence in Japanese is a must; whereas, proficient level of
    English communication is also required for your counterparts outside of
