Head of Engineering

I am currently exclusively partnered with an exciting tech start-up to find a motivated Head of Engineering to lead their development function. This role is responsible for ensuring that the company has the right engineering team and structure in place to continue delivering their mission, technology, product visions as well as client requirements. You will be a self-starter, equally as comfortable in team leadership as you are in planning and driving technology roadmaps.

Your key responsibilities in this role will include:

  • Building a high-performing engineering team (front/ back end and mobile development)
  • Defining and leading the engineering vision, technology roadmap and processes.
  • Supporting engineer progression and growth through career frameworks, guidance and coaching
  • Providing technical direction across the company
  • Working with the CPO to align on the company's long-term product roadmap

Knowledge, Skills and Experience

  • Proven track record of engineering management, including previous experience in building a high performing team
  • Background in software development as a Tech Lead and Manager
  • Ability to drive engineering excellence through identifying and implementing process and quality improvements
  • Highly knowledgeable in engineering processes, including all aspects of testing and agile software development methodologies
  • Previous experience in working with an off-shore team would be advantageous
  • Experience in working in a full stack development role, preferably with mobile development (though not a requirement)

This is the perfect role for a natural leader, who thrives in fast-paced and dynamic environments and is looking to make a mark on a company. If you believe that you meet the above criteria please do not hesitate to apply!
