Ready to join our team?

Xerris is a cloud-native software development company. We build amazing products for our customers, using agile delivery while having fun while we do it. We are a remote-first environment as we believe you can be most productive when you are given full control of where you are in the world. Everyone at Xerris has a mentor that helps improve their skills and supports their development so no matter what level of experience you're at there is always something new to learn in the cloud.


What we're looking for

Xerris is made up of developers and microservice team leads represent our technical leadership at its finest. Our team leads are both technically adept, but great communicators and mentors of those around them. We're looking for those who are generous with their experience and knowledge to bring others up and give others an opportunity to shine and succeed. Microservice team leads will have proven experience leading and delivering microservice architectures with teams larger than 2 or 3 people. Successful candidates will be able to be comfortable speaking both in how things are going to be coded, but also what the trade-offs are when making technical decisions the whole team will have to follow.


Team leaders at Xerris are approachable and easy to work with as well as respected for their quick decision making and ability to adapt and change to dynamic environments where customer requirements can sometimes be unclear.
