Engineering Lead (Java)

Our company is creating the next phase of digital tools for the movement of people around the world. Our mission is to make navigation easier for millions of people – and we need your help!

 

Position Summary:

The Engineering Lead is a critical role that reports to the CEO and leads a global engineering team for a modern SaaS application. We’re seeking someone comfortable with not only being a leader to the team, but also will “roll up their sleeves” and work in the code too.

Your role will be to shape product positioning and the expansion of a platform that we have developed over a number of years – but with the rare position to architect and build a new suite of tools and data from it. The person will help select and lead a team, and work with product subject matter experts and product marketing managers to refine the product-market fit, and take the product to scale.

You and your team will be responsible for executing the vision of our business in a way that allows success today and in the future as we grow our platform and business.

You will be responsible for championing new processes and releasing a quality product on time and balancing technical debt. You will be a hands-on leader who is technically adept and has the desire and capability to mentor your team.

 

What will you do:

  • Lead software engineering team, including software development agencies and contractor relationships, such that it will be known for delivery speed, quality, predictability, and responsiveness
  • Partner with the Product Lead to ensure engineering’s vision for success is aligned with the business goals and to prioritize development tasks
  • Establish a culture of continuous improvement to deliver value to our customers, and DevOps culture to deliver modern, scalable, SaaS software
  • Ensure the engineering team is properly staffed and provided the proper tools and processes
  • Collaborate with other leaders, including the COO and CEO, to define high-level objectives
  • Participate in and oversee engineering design and architecture decisions
  • Participate in sprint planning with the product management team
  • Own production and pre-production environments including changing management and release management
  • Identify, track, and improve metrics to ensure the health of our engineering team, processes, and platform
