We are looking for a Head of Engineering to build & lead our engineering team. As an API-based company, we have a variety of engineering needs, including data engineering, applications, integrations & infrastructure. We're looking for an ambitious leader who wishes to motivate


You'll work hand-in-hand with our CTO, who is focused on advancing our machine learning and predictive models and will manage our R&D team, as well as our CEO, who has predictive modeling experience as well; however, you will be entirely in charge of making key technical decisions, determining resource needs & leading our engineering team every week to hit key milestones.

Description du poste

The ideal candidate will have some previous leadership experience (lead, director, head, scrum master); however, any candidate who believes they can rise to the occasion is encouraged to apply. As we are a young team, you will initially be expected to be hands on in tackling technical challenges, therefore the ideal candidate will considers themselves very strong in at least one of the following areas: data engineering, application development, or machine learning.


We're a small team today, which means you'll have the opportunity to get to know every one of your colleagues and learn new things every single day. We're also growing fast, which means you're joining a rocket ship right before liftoff - we're already working with some amazing customers like Algolia, Slack, Shopify & InVision, helping their marketing & sales teams make better decisions every day.


We need leaders who are passionate about creating value for customers, who are comfortable solving a problem 80% of the way in 20% of the time because the customer needs it yesterday, and who are able to get up and running from day one.


Are you a pragmatic engineer? A passionate outdoor enthusiast? An opinionated communicator? Then apply today - we can't wait to get to know you!
