With over 16 years in the industry, Church Community Builder is a trusted partner to over 4,000 churches and growing.

Our culture is professionally casual, where we all work hard and play hard together. You will serve alongside some of the best teammates in the industry who exhibit integrity, respect, and fun.

The purpose of the Software Development Manager role is to lead a team of application developers at Church Community Builder.

As a Software Development Manager, your primary job responsibility is to support the developers you lead here at Church Community builder. That includes attracting and retaining talent, building an engaging work culture, and supporting your team as they contribute to Church Community Builder’s product development goals.

Ideally, you will grow and mentor your team members in their software development skills, as well as their soft skills. In order to do that effectively, some of your role will be “hands on” - you’ll need to be able to pair and partner with your team members on projects in flight, and use your experiences and observations working with them to help them grow.

In order to do that well, prior recent software development in a team based environment and using modern programming practices is a must. You will lead developers that will be growing our web-based SaaS product that is built on a LAMP stack and uses Reactjs/React Native for our front end. Prior experience with those specific technologies is helpful but is not strictly required.

In addition to your people leadership responsibilities, you’ll also be a contributing member of the Software and Technology Leadership team that is responsible for guiding the strategic direction of the entire department. Experiences that you have in software development, hosting, DevOps, security, agile, and other fields related to building and maintaining a SaaS product will be very helpful.

What you'll need:

  • 6+ years software development experience working in one or more general purpose programming languages. 
  • Past experience with defining developer process, best practices, and serving as lead developer on projects. 
  • Past experience working either web application development, mobile application development, or both. 
  • Proficiency communicating (in English) verbally and in written form, both one on one and in a group setting. 
  • Significant experience working in Agile, Scrum, Kanban or similar incremental, team based methodology.

What will set you apart:

  • Prior software development leadership experience, either in a managerial role or leading as an individual contributor (such as a tech lead, architect or similar role).
  • Past experience working in an XP environment that includes practices such as Test Driven Development (TDD), paired programming, refactoring and continuous integration. 
  • Past experience working within web based software development, and in particular a SaaS product/company.
  • Comfortable working in a typical LAMP stack and/or in a modern Javascript framework such as Reactjs/React Native. 
  • Experience with AWS technologies commonly found in a typical LAMP stack (RDS, EC2, S3, etc)
  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or a related field helpful. 

What you’ll get:

  • Comprehensive health insurance
  • Vision and Dental insurance
  • 401K matching
  • Profit Sharing
  • Paid Time Off
  • Company-paid staff retreats
  • In-house workout facility
  • Twice a month All Staff breakfasts or lunches
  • James 1:27 - up to 5 consecutive paid days to serve widows, orphans or vulnerable single-parent homes

An Insider's view of Church Community Builder

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We strive for work-life harmony by challenging ourselves to give it our ALL whether creating product, interacting with customers, or designing new campaigns. We also want people to go home for dinner, use their PTO, and take time to minister to others in need. We desire that everyone be fulfilled in all that they are, do, and aspire to be.


Head of People Operations

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

As developers, we want a beautiful, intuitive, easy-to-work-with code base. Our designers want best-in-class user experience. Our product managers want to deliver useful features as quickly as possible. As a team, we work together to find a balance of these sometimes-competing priorities to ensure a sustainable, beautiful, and useful product.


Software Developer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

This company is full of great people and opportunity! I started on the facilities/operations team, moved into software development, and now work on the Software and Technology Leadership Team. This is a great place to work!


Software and Technology Leadership Team

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

We give our developers time every week for self-directed learning. That's time to sharpen skills on tools we use or to reach out beyond our stack and learn new frameworks, languages, tools, and technologies. Not only does that keep developers learning, but it gives us more tools in our toolbox as we come up with customer solutions.


Head of Software Development and Technology

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our Product Design team is in a unique position to create new products and reimagine existing ones in partnership with multiple teams and our users.
