A Day In The Life
During a typical work week, our crew members enjoy a balanced assignment of 35 hours on client projects with the ability to invest the other 5 hours on a combination of individual goals and team meetings. Each quarter, we take a full week away from client work to focus on team goals and internal project initiatives. These weeks alternate between a retreat style destination that encourages team bonding and goal setting, and a more focused week-long design and development sprint at our primary office in Wisconsin. Check out some of our team week recaps and years in review to get a feel for how much fun it is to work at Headway!

Position Description
As a Developer at Headway, you are client and user focused while executing on the details of each project. You diligently develop features and functionality, guided by Headway's process to ensure each release is successful. This role requires constant learning and a growth mindset.

When communicating with clients during sprint planning, retros, and release demos, you help monitor features as project requirements change, and direct emergent requirement discussions back to the core focus of a minimum viable product (MVP). In doing so, you help manage client expectations and project scope, ensuring we build the most valuable features first.

As a Developer at Headway, you are responsible for executing within the Headway development process with a focus on client and user needs including:

- Practicing "craft within context" and working with crewmates to receive advice and guidance to grow your knowledge.
- Driving all development from the outside-in with user story mapping and MoSCoW prioritization.
- Assisting with development critiques and QA
- Performing pull request (PR) reviews
- Participating in pairing sessions to help crewmates learn and grow.
- Performing QA of both internal code quality and external end-user UI/UX.
- Contributing to release notes.
- Participating in sprint planning sessions and retros while taking notes collaboratively alongside the rest of the team.
