Position summary
We are looking for an extraordinary leader and engineer who will lead the engineering effort of this disruptive startup. While also being hands on in maintaining current and new products.
Youre the driving force for the engineering team, being the crucial interface between business, product and design. You dive deep into technical architecture, manage stakeholders, communicate towards peers and leadership and lead the engineering activities for the company. At the same time, you still have a passion for coding and a hands-on attitude which helps you to guide and support other engineers to bring highest value to the stakeholders (consumers and teams within), with experience in distributed systems and scalable architecture and a great understanding of Full-Stack technologies.
Building great software at web scale requires a multidisciplinary approach to engineering. It is far more important to be able to reason intelligently about complex problems, and apply experience to new domains than it is to know specifics about the latest technology buzzword. Youre not expected to be an expert in all languages, but you should be able to write code in several core development languages, have worked with the important frameworks and tools in a variety of platforms, and be willing to use your knowledge and experience in new domains.
