Responsibilities

As Director of Engineering, you'll be responsible for building out an Engineering team which supports a line of business, managing the development process, and defining our technical infrastructure.

An ideal candidate for this role is someone who thrives in a fast-paced, rapidly changing environment and is able to balance solutions that are elegant and scalable, yet simple and pragmatic. You embrace the value of shipping rather than over-engineering.

  • Drive the technology strategy and architecture goals for your engineering team.
  • Work closely with senior management and your engineering team to define the teams goals and roadmap.
  • Partner with a Product Manager to define projects and high level scope. Work with engineering team to bring each project from conception to production.
  • Function as mediator and primary point of contact for your engineering team to ensure smooth transitions and eliminate unnecessary interruptions.
  • Hands on contribution: writing code and helping your team reach their deliverables in our diverse, microservice driven architecture.

Qualifications

  • Manager with hands-on development experience and a strong software engineering background.
  • Experience building modular, event-driven systems at scale.
  • Passion for shipping daily and iterating.
  • Experience directly managing agile teams and processes.
  • Experience working with cloud-based technologies (we use AWS and on-premise hardware).
  • Passion for using technology to elegantly solve business problems.
  • Hands on engineering experience, ideally with Python, MySQL and NoSQL data stores, some PHP.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
