VP Engineering

I am looking for a VP of Engineering to join a global tech/media company, building an engineering function from scratch and providing the technical capability to continue creating their unique product offering. The successful candidate will be highly entrepreneurial, with proven ability to grow and scale a team (as well as the network to help do so). This is a fast-paced and often chaotic workplace, and the initial areas of focus for the newly established engineering team will include both the Editorial/ creative process, as well as the continued monitization of the platform.

Your background will include examples of:

  • Building and maintaining a high-performing engineering team
  • Providing technical direction and strategical thinking
  • Knowledge and hands-on use of both-front and back-end development technologies (React and Node.JS preferable), as well as data science, machine learning, and content management and delivery.
  • Delivering outstanding results within a fast-paced and rapid-growth company
  • Working alongside Product and Data Science teams to plan and execute both new and further enhancements
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills

My client is one of the fastest-growing social media content sites in the world, with triple digit growth for visitors across all of their major domains. With offices and staff in London, New York and Tel Aviv, as well as countless other contributors distributed worldwide, this is a truly global company and their content serves to demonstrate this further. This is an opportunity that is not to be missed, so please click apply for more details!
