Tetra Insights is an early-stage software startup headquartered in Boulder, CO. We're a team on a mission to help organizations make better, more empathetic decisions. We believe the best organizations truly care about their users and customers, and that by putting users’ interests first, companies build better products and create better outcomes.

Our goal is to build intuitive and powerful tools that enable qualitative data (audio and video) to be just as accessible as quantitative data. We seek to put real, insightful customer interactions in front of decision makers. As companies increasingly understand the people their decisions affect, they achieve better outcomes for all stakeholders.

We are a small team of engineers, researchers, and data analysts with members of our team located all over the world. We’re now looking to add a technical lead to our team to work out of our offices in Boulder and manage the technical strategy and development of our software.

To see what Tetra is all about, demo our current build:

This version currently serves our initial customers. It’s powerful. It drives user experience decisions at brands you recognize and admire. But it’s really just the beginning.

*Job Description*
You will be the leader of our software engineering operations, responsible for everything from technical architecture to hiring and managing your team of engineers. You will be a senior member of our leadership team, with involvement across our entire business. We’re looking to add someone to our team who is ambitious and passionate about building not only excellent products, but also a wonderful work environment.

*Job Requirements*
- Belief in the value of user research, qualitative data, and empathy for driving strategic decisions.
- Desire to lead an engineering team through the exciting and challenging growth phases of a technology startup.
- Commitment to data security and privacy, ensuring our clients’ confidential innovation data and customer details that they trust to our software are in good hands.
- Willingness to be an individual contributor on the engineering team, writing code and participating as a member of our scrum development team in addition to management responsibilities.
- Dedication to doing the best work of your life and making a huge impact in helping us build an outstanding company with a world-class team.
- A positive attitude, relentless curiosity, and uncompromising standards for quality.
- Excellent communication and collaboration skills.

We’re looking for the right person, not the right resume. However, ideal candidates would likely have some or all of the following work experience:

- Several years leading/managing a high performance engineering team
- Experience in a fast-paced and unstructured start-up environment
- Experience working across the full stack of software
- Ability to learn new languages and pick the right tools for the job
- Experience recruiting and hiring the best engineers
- Experience working with video/streaming is a plus

An ideal candidate for us is someone who is hungry to build something amazing and truly do the most impactful work of your life, looking to spend the next 5-10 years building an amazing business at Tetra.

We want someone who will push us, challenge us, and help us get better in all facets of our business. You should have a team-first mentality and be an excellent collaborator. You should also be comfortable working with uncertainty and managing unexpected problems or issues.

This is an ideal role for an experienced engineer who is looking to join a passionate team and be part of the exciting startup journey.
