Posted on Oct 18 2019 (about 2 months ago)


No matter if your current title is senior, principal, tech-lead, architect or CTO, if you are a very experienced .NET developer and believe that you are a proactive person who also has developed the skills required to make a team of developers row in the same direction, then we would love to hear from you!

At Lodgify a Principal Engineer is not just a title, a PE makes the whole development team better by aligning the team towards a common tech roadmap, advocating for best practices and helping in forming and reminding people about the processes.

Even if this position does require people skills you will not have direct reports and won’t need to abandon technology, coding or architecture.

You need to be able to back your opinion up with arguments but also be open to listen, discuss it and support somebody else’s opinion when it better aligns the team.
