Job Description

Vanco provides businesses, nonprofits, and education organizations a complete range of payment solutions and administrative software. Our solutions make payment processing simple and ease administrative burdens for faith-based groups, nonprofits, and schools.

We are looking for a talented, self-motivated individual to join one of our software development teams in Bloomington, MN.   The team is co-located in Bloomington, MN as well as Cancun, Mexico.  We are looking for a technical lead that will write software, mentor junior developers, create system designs, perform code reviews, etc.  Although we have a talented team, we have several junior developers, so we’re really looking for someone who has the skills and desire to step in and be a leader on the team.

This team is responsible for the RevTrak product line, which is our market-leading SaaS e-commerce solution for K-12 schools. Using RevTrak, parents can register and pay for nearly every fee that they owe their kids’ school, from paying for field trips to registering for school sports teams.  We have a single scrum team that owns the entire product from front to back end.  Because we are a small team, you will be able to see direct impact of your work on our product and our customers.  In some ways it feels like a startup environment, but with the benefits of being part of a larger company for stability.

We use Microsoft technologies on the back end, primarily C#, MVC, web services, and SQL Server, and on the front end, we are standardizing on Angular 2.  We follow an Agile scrum process, including two-week sprints, daily standup meetings, sprint planning, sprint review, retrospectives etc.

We’re looking for a talented developer, of course, with strong technical skills.  But just as importantly, we’re looking for a leader and team player.  We’re passionate about having a great team that works together and produces great results while having fun.
