Oak City Labs is a custom software development company in Apex, NC. You’ll mostly find us building mobile apps, cloud solutions, and other custom software for entrepreneurs and organizations in the health, manufacturing, food, AgTech and BioTech spaces.

In this role, you’ll report to our CTO and duties will include:

  • Write clean, maintainable, easy to understand code.
  • Test, debug, and troubleshoot mobile and web applications.
  • Integrate apps with 3rd party APIs.
  • Estimate and size development efforts.
  • Continually improve your craft, evaluating new types of solutions and design patterns, and using the good ones to make our products exceptional.
  • Meet any client or company based deadlines. We know stuff will happen, but we’re going to work hard as a team to make things right for our customers.
  • Be a positive force within our team and for our customers.

You’ll be a fit for this position because you:

  • Have a strong sense of ownership in your work. You take pride in what you make and want it to be spectacular.
  • Engender trust in your team. We’re a small shop and we depend on our teammates. If you say you’ll do something, you will get it done.
  • Want to build code the right way. You want to write pretty, elegant code, with plenty of tests so you can make a change and know everything still works.
  • Are troubled by bugs you don’t understand. A bug report that doesn’t make sense keeps you up at night.
  • Are excited by the idea of building an entire app, from the ground up, on your own.  You want to take ownership from the blueprints to the launch.

Requirements from most important to least.

  • Either (or better yet, both!)
    • Bachelor’s degree in science, mathematics or engineering (we’ll also consider computer science degrees)
    • An established background as a professional developer
  • Local to Apex, NC
  • 1-4 years of software development experience with the willingness to learn Swift and/or Javascript
  • 2+ years of writing Swift or 2+ years of writing Javascript
  • Ability to context switch between languages and projects
  • Unit testing
  • Interested in at least one other language besides Swift.

Salary is commensurate with experience. This position is located in Apex, NC with the option to work some hours from home. We are not open to remote candidates at this time.

We’re seeking a part-time project manager to join our team beginning this summer!

As a Project Manager, you’ll be responsible for managing our client projects. You’ll have experience with juggling multiple projects at once with grace and ease. While you aren’t a developer, you have a technical familiarity or background through previous work at other digital agencies that will help you translate the needs of our clients to the internal development team (and vice versa).

In this role, you’ll report to our CEO and be responsible for:

  • Project Management: This role will primarily focus on project management. You’re a great fit if you are skilled with client communication, both written and oral, as well as being an excellent liaison between client stakeholders and our internal development team, balancing the needs and requirements of both. You’ll be responsible for managing client projects from start to finish through kick-off meetings, weekly status calls, timeline and budget management, etc.
  • Production Management: In addition to managing our client projects, in this role you’ll also lead the team in planning work for the week ahead (called sprints) by balancing the current needs of all clients, projects and deadlines. Each day you’ll attend and manage stand-up meetings and adjust the day’s responsibilities as the need arises. A familiarity with Jira project tracking software is a plus, though not required.
  • Quality Assurance: In this role, you’ll also contribute to quality assurance testing and bug reporting as the need arises with projects. You’re a great fit if you have a keen attention to detail that you’ll use to effectively and thoroughly test mobile apps (both Android and iOS) and web apps. You’ll field client bug reports and translate these to the internal development team as appropriate.

You’ll be a fit for this position because you have:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Marketing, Communications, Business or similar field
  • 2-5+ years of project management experience in a digital agency
  • Familiarity with Jira project tracking software or similar (a plus, not required)

Salary is commensurate with experience. This position is located in Apex, NC with the option to work some hours from home. We are not open to remote candidates at this time. This position begins with training the first week of July.

To apply, send your resume to team@oakcity.io. In the body of your email include 1-2 paragraphs about why you enjoy being a project manager. Please, no phone calls.
