Apply on company site

Company is seeking a VP of Engineering to be the lead technical architect and manager of our engineering flows that impact over 100,000 users and support Fortune 500 customers. This engineer will drive the technical execution of our product roadmap and manage a team of 3-4 software engineers and data scientists, reporting directly to the CEO.

The VP of Engineering will be flexible and organizationally versatile, working directly with the management team in co-creating product strategy while working side-by-side with engineers toward technical execution of our workflows. The candidate will work to deliver the highest technical standards in our product, nurture and promote creativity and growth in the team, and relentlessly execute our product roadmap.

This person will be a mission-driven leader that works effortlessly in cross-functional settings, bridges workflows between teams toward a single goal, and can negotiate across teams to create a unified and coherent user experience. The candidate will interface heavily with our field operations and sales team to gather user requirements and travel overseas to user markets as required.

We are a fast-moving startup focused in both creativity and execution in serving our users but we love to have fun and thrive on open brainstorming, transparency and a workplace environment as diverse as our own global user base and customers.

  • Ability to produce scaleable, reliable solutions to complex technical problems and create high impact user experiences
  • Believe in beautifully-crafted, well-tested code, and while creative problem solving is in your toolbelt, hacking solutions together is not
  • Desire for a hands-on leadership/product ownership role on a small team, contributing to the code base as required in addition to managing the team
  • A true team player and leader, fostering a highly supportive, collaborative environment
  • B.S. in Computer Science / Electrical Engineering or equivalent technical subject
