About the Role:

We are looking for an experienced engineer to manage the technical aspect of Dubsado’s vision and operations.

Reporting to the CTO, the responsibilities of a Solution Architect at Dubsado includes leading a team of developers and engineers, collaborating with product managers, and improving the development policies and standards.

To be successful as a Solution Architect, you should have prior organizational leadership experience, be able to collaborate with team members, and be a strategic problem-solver. You will have the ability to plan and execute high level technical operations and then work on the codebase and see projects through to the end while also maintaining other responsibilities such as mentorship, cross team pair coding, and peer reviewing code.

  • Manage the engineering organization’s cash flow and oversee important buying and spending decisions around key tools and technologies. The goal is to keep engineering costs down and help drive profits for the business.
  • Create and implement structures around people in the engineering organization.
  • Build an empowering engineering culture by fostering psychological safety and inclusivity in all their interactions and processes.
  • Oversee any major reorganizations or help integrate any mergers and acquisitions that the organization goes through.

An Insider's view of Dubsado

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I have never worked for a company that prioritizes work-life balance like Dubsado. You are expected to perform at a high level but once you leave for the day, you are able to fully step away. I know that when I go home, I can focus on my family and not need to think about work at all. This happens on all levels of the company and it is refreshing.


Director of Human Resources

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Having an established product makes this an exciting time to take user feedback and revisit every feature in our platform. How do we strengthen our foundations so that we can continue innovating and supporting business owners for many more years to come? I love this problem space—the possibilities are endless and the ideas never stop coming!


Director of Product

What are some things you learned at the company?

I’ve learned that with the right idea, and enough passion, and work ethic, it’s possible to take a dream and make it a reality. I’ve also learned that if you are operating in the gifts and talents you’ve been given, with people that you care about, you don’t need to find much motivation to come into work. At that point, it’s no longer work.


Director of Education

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our team is working on the foundation for the migration to React. We get to make architectural decisions that determine the way our frontend will be built out in the future!


Lead Software Developer

What are some social events your company does?

On Friday afternoons we have “Happy Hour”. These days vary from playing board games in the office, a good old-fashioned game of bingo, or to heading offsite to a pool hall or local brewery. Our annual company party is always a fun time. Previous years we’ve gone bowling, held a murder mystery dinner, and even raced go-karts together.
