My client is looking for a contractor who is both a good hands-on back-end developer with Golang, and who is able to play the role of tech lead.
This can be a remote opportunity. Would prefer someone in Tri-state area.
A tech lead on a feature team is able to provide technical guidance to others, code review, help with technical specs, and also ensure that any major architectural decisions are surfaced to the architectural review board when necessary. It’s not a full-on architect role but should be senior enough to guide good technical implementation and decision making while also contributing to hands-on development.
The goal of this role is to both allow for parallelizing development streams, and to reduce the need for engineering management overhead for day-to-day operations for this team. This includes working with front-end and DevOps teams to work out integrations and data requirements.

Strong software design skills; database modeling a plus
Openness to learning new programming languages
Experience with distributed systems
Docker and/or Kubernetes experience a plus
Typescript experience a plus
