Director of Engineering, Enterprise Collaboration Platform (Web, Desktop & Mobile)
San Francisco, CA

We use desks, computers, and email to get things done at work, but 75% of the world doesn't. Most people work outside offices, and they rely on outdated tools like SMS trees and walkie-talkies. Our clients brings them a better communication experience and a better working day.

We're looking for an experienced Lead Engineer to contribute to & build out the engineering team (50/50 split, hands on to management). As the Director of Engineering, you'll help shape the platform that powers the solution for mobile, web and desktop clients. Our client iterates quickly and they release almost daily, so you'll get to own and ship your own code while you help shape the future of the API, services, infrastructure, and deployment pipelines. They're moving towards "immutable" infrastructure patterns, so experience with containers, orchestration and cluster deployment will be helpful.

10+ years experience.
5+ year management with expanding responsibilities.
Some 2nd level management experience.
Demonstrated ability to build a team.
Strong technical systems design skills.
Strong domain knowledge in one or more of: mobile development, web and backend, or infrastructure.
Strong domain knowledge in one or more of: Collaboration software, content systems, AI (ML, NLP), app platforms, analytics.
Strong passion using agile process to meet business deliverables.
Is viewed as an essential member of the product triad (Engineering, Product, Design) and thrives in cross functional project teams.
Demonstrated leadership in creating an environment that fosters collaboration among all team members.
Strong presentation skills.
Willingness to roll up their sleeves to get the job done, while also being an effective delegator.
Experience in, and strong proponent for continuous delivery.
A willingness to asses and take risks.

Our client has a friendly, welcoming environment and a team that cares about diversity and inclusion. They're well-funded, which means they can offer competitive salaries and benefits, quality gear, and catered lunches. They're also still small and growing, so there's opportunity to grow with them.
