● You’ve led and managed technology/engineering teams of over 20 people.
● You’ve held a VP/CTO title at a start-up or a Director role at a larger company, and
understand what best engineering practices truly are (and are able to implement them).
● You remain close enough to the technology, in that you can still communicate on a high
level with other software engineers.
● You are passionate about software development, and keep up on the latest news &
trends--you’ll be expected to use this knowledge to make architectural decisions.
● You’re passionate about working for a mission-driven company.
Our products are currently based on the MERN Stack (Mongo, Express, React, Node) & AWS, but we are not married to any of those technologies. This person will have the ability to make architectural decisions that will impact all of the engineering team.
This role reports directly to the CTO
As the VP of Engineering, you will have over 30 direct reports. Our team is split across NYC and Washington, DC (most of our software development however takes place in NYC).
