Job Description

We are seeking an Architect / Lead Developer - Math, Cloud, SaaS, API specialist to manage our IT infrastructure and help us create and manage cutting-edge B2B and B2C products. Our product plans include cloud-based mathematical equation editing and display, math-to-speech generation, mathematical search, and math-based social applications. We intend to create an open SaaS platform that will allow math, science, and engineering students, teachers, and professionals to make mathematics a first-class data type on web, desktop, mobile, and cloud.

You will play a key management role in our dynamic and growing 30-person company. This is not a typical IT management position. We want someone who is driven by technology, not by empire building. We want someone who wants to be part of a high-powered team, not someone who can't stand to have his/her authority or knowledge challenged. Although Design Science has been around since 1987, we foster a startup environment, but with more job security.

Desired Skills and Experience

  • Self-assured and effective communicator in writing and in person.
  • Confident technical vision that you are able to defend and eager to implement.
  • Effective manager who can keep projects on track.
  • Expect to run your department in a way that is transparent to management -- your problems are our problems.
  • Experience working with IT contractors and consultants.
  • Experience leading large projects for mission-critical systems.
  • Experience in these technologies: Web Services, REST, Cloud Computing, Databases, Content Management Systems, DevOps tools, continuous integration and deployment.
  • Cross-platform experience is a plus, including Windows, Macintosh, Unix/Linux operating systems.
  • General knowledge of programming and familiarity with JavaScript, Java, C++, PHP and other programming systems.
