The Staff Software Engineer is a member of one of Dayspring’s engineering teams and reports to the team’s Engineering Team Lead. The Staff Software Engineer is a contributor, helping develop applications to deliver high quality solutions for Dayspring’s professional services clients. This is a full-time position in our San Francisco office 3 days a week, and optionally 2 days a week remote.

What’s the role?

As a Staff Software Engineer, you’ll implement software solutions for Dayspring’s clients based on requirements and specifications provided by a Senior Software Engineer. You may also lead another engineer or two to deliver specific work products.

As a technical collaborator, you’ll assist an Engineering Team Lead or Principal Consultant in defining and estimating discrete portions of client solutions. You’ll enable your team to nurture long-term client relationships through maintenance engagements and by supporting and debugging existing code.

You’re someone who sees software engineering as a craft through which you build applications to help and serve your clients. You take in the big picture, but also appreciate details and work to get them implemented correctly. As an experienced member of the team, you’ll proactively seek guidance from the team’s Mentor Engineer as you continue to grow in your craft and expand your ability to serve Dayspring’s clients with excellence. The team works together so everyone can work a smart 40-hour workweek and unplug for time off.

As a craftsperson, you make good use of the software engineering tools at your disposal, and use them to work with your team to understand, refine, and fulfill the client’s vision.

What makes Dayspring unique?

  • We desire to live out an ethic of love—for our co-workers, for our clients and vendors, and for our community—in the practice of business. In the workplace, we want to do the joyful work of welcoming people with a variety of backgrounds and allowing ourselves to be changed as a result.
  • We sincerely desire to do right by the clients we serve. We keep our promises, we speak with respect, and we apologize when we ought to. And we expect to hold one another accountable and to be held accountable to this.
  • We watch out for one another, and we’ll look out for you too. People aren’t constantly positioning themselves. No office politics here. When you or your loved ones are sick, we treat you like a person first and a worker second.
  • We share an office in San Francisco because we believe being together in person matters, and that practicing common life shapes us for the good. And we’re called and committed to our broader community in our Bayview neighborhood, including through our partnerships with Redeemer Community Church and Rise University Preparatory.
