Position title

Looking for a role that is more than just coding?  This is it.  Build Labs is hiring a Principal DevelopMentor with a primary focus on Mobile for our expanding Minneapolis presence.  This role could also work from our Las Vegas location.  This role is equivalent to a mid-level developer.  In additional to tackling technical problems for clients, the Principal DevelopMentor will mentor 4-5 apprentices to help develop their technical capabilities.  These apprentices will be Bootcamp graduates or new Comp Sci graduates, so someone who can empathize and understand their experience level upon graduation would be ideal.


As a DevelopMentor, your primary role is two fold: design/build efficient solutions to our clients' technical challenges AND mentor the apprentice developers along their continued learning journey and prepare them for full time roles with our clients.

Identify the capabilities and skills gaps of each apprentice and develop and document their unique learning journey.

Manage the technical delivery of projects.

Assist with growing a Build Labs market presence.


Though Build Labs is tech agnostic, we expect a Principal Developmentor to be well versed in full stack development including:

  • Primary native mobile development, iOS or Android, but willingness to learn both. React Native would be a plus as well.
  • HTML/CSS with an attention to pixel-detail.
  • JavaScript with experience in React, React Native, AngularJS, or similar JS frameworks.
  • Database experience in SQL, Mongo, etc.
  • DevOps and Cloud experience would be beneficial as well.  We usually run Heroku, but clients are frequently running Azure and AWS.

We won’t bore you with a list of additional wish-list qualifications nor an arbitrary number of years of experience required.  As a Principal DevelopMentor, you’ll need to be strong enough to act as technical lead, possess the capabilities to build and launch web and mobile apps from scratch, have the ability to learn new technologies, and have empathy and passion for helping others grow their skills. Everything else is just details.

Drop us an application, a resume, and a brief summary of your experience and a link to your portfolio or your GitHub account, and we’ll chat.
