An HDQC Lead Software Engineer is a seasoned software engineer. Activities include: designing, developing, installing, and maintaining software solutions. Lead software engineers will be expected to mentor less-experienced members of their team, prepare to become a manager or architect if the opportunity presents itself, and be self-directed and able to lead a small project team. In addition, lead software engineers should maintain technical depth (being very skilled in certain parts of the technology stack) and breadth (not isolated to a single segment of the technology stack).
