Overview:

OurFamilyWizard is the world’s most trusted co-parenting application. Nearly one million parents and practitioners have leveraged OurFamilyWizard to more effectively organize and communicate. With a recent infusion of capital, we are ready to accelerate our growth to the next level by reaching the millions of parents and professionals who can benefit from OurFamilyWizard.

We are looking for a passionate Java expert who has strong experience working with SaaS products. Working alongside our team of engineers, you’ll play a key role in helping to maintain and scale our backend architecture across a myriad of features.

What Success Looks Like:

Getting ramped up.

The first 30 - 60 days, you’ll be getting acquainted with our tech stack and domains through code reviews, shipping code out, and digging into our code repo.

While you ramp up on tech, you’ll also be resolving a diversity of mid-tier technical issues that arise.

Becoming a Subject Matter Expert

Beyond those initial two months, you’ll start to own more of the backend. This means driving projects to completion and working across the team on API design and implementation.

Beyond API architecture, you’ll start to play a key role in broader architectural decision-making across your domain. There’s also an opportunity to work across the organization and contribute to meaningful change regarding build and release processes.

Our Tech Stack:

  • Java
  • React
  • Gradle
  • Spring
  • GIT
  • Hibernate
  • Tomcat
  • Android
  • iOS - Swift


Who You Are:

Comfortable with Ambiguity. You’re not afraid of the “fork in the road”. Your keen ability to create synergy and connect the dots in a high-growth, fast-paced environment is what sets you apart from the rest.

Proactive. Your passion for learning and growing is sparked by a high degree of intellectual curiosity. This pushes you to problem-solve challenges, actively take on new initiatives, and raise your hand on mission critical issues.

Collaborative. You pride yourself in your ability to balance competing priorities and appropriately manage ad hoc requests. This, coupled with your outstanding communication skills, allows you to project manage well while keeping yourself and the team aligned.

Why Join?

Great mission. Creating a safe and productive environment for families to co-exist is extremely important for us; we’ve been doing it for 19 years. That’s why we just closed a private investment round through our committed investors, Spectrum Equity. This relationship puts us in the same company as brands like: Ancestry, Bitly, GrubHub, and others.

Growing team. While we’ve been around for a while, we continue to evolve and innovate. That’s what keeps us going! You’ll have an opportunity to contribute meaningfully to our engineering organization as we hit our second stride.

Amazing Culture. OurFamilyWizard has a positive and supportive culture—we look for people who are curious, inventive, and work to be a little better every single day. In our work together we aim to be smart, humble, hardworking and, above all, collaborative. Here’s a list of our key benefits:

  • Health and Dental Care: OFW pays 100% of the premium for employee AND additional family members
  • 401k: Up to a 4% match is offered with immediate vesting. Roth style and Traditional contributions are both offered.
  • Learning & Development stipend for employees
    • Full access to Udemy online learning courses
  • 4 weeks paid parental leave
  • Recently added National Election day to the list of company holidays!
  • OFW employees drink free of charge at our local pub, Dangerous Man Brewing (within reason, of course), and outside business hours!
