Lead Engineer

New York, NY


At Countr, we want to hire Software Engineers who believe that the best products come from a blend of technology and design, and who love figuring out original ways to solve hard, important problems. Excellence and speed are prerequisites, average need not apply.

We’re looking for a game-changing Lead Engineer who can dream big, understands what it takes to institute a culture of accountability, and also knows how to have fun. As Lead Engineer you should not only have the technical chops to roll up your sleeves and provide technical leadership to major projects, but also be able to manage a team of engineers. You optimize your own code and make sure engineers are able to optimize theirs.


“At Countr, we view engineering as a craft, and want the structure of our products and services to be as flawless as the end user experience we are designing.”

Who are we?

Countr is a team of dreamers and doers who strive to foster a community and a work environment that thrives on taking risks, innovating, and creating technology solutions that empower others.

We have high expectations of each other and believe that transparency, hunger for learning, and our never-ending desire to push the boundaries are what allow us, together, to build things we are proud of.

Our goal is to create value for everyone: our users, our partners and for our team. We’re passionate about building innovative products that improve our users’ lives and connect them with others.


“We want to build a culture, where we can collaborate, exchange ideas and continuously learn together in order to build innovative products.”

What is the role?

What we are building at Countr has never been done before so we need novel solutions to build out our platform. That’s why we need self-starters who are innovative and curious. Building tools and languages have yet to be determined, so this is an opportunity to make it your own.

You will be working with the founders to conceptualize the initial design and architecture, and code against the product and feature goals.

  • Take responsibility for the overall planning, execution, and success of complex technical projects.
  • Hire and manage a team of software engineers, including task planning and code reviews.
  • Work on cross-functional teams to build the best features and experiences for our users.

You will drive technical projects and provide leadership in an innovative and fast-paced environment, and will have the opportunity to hire and manage a team of software engineers.

What are you like?

  • Curiosity, awareness, resoluteness, and empathy are qualities we look for in engineering candidates.
  • “We’ve never done THAT before” as a personal challenge.
  • Share in the collective effort of the group and enthusiastically support and cooperate with others to develop effective solutions.
  • You are able to see the big picture, but pay attention to the necessary details while striving for excellence and driving value.
