As a Senior Director of Software Engineering, you will

  • Coach one or more domain teams

Who you are

You’ll have a solid grasp of the application of technology at scale, and are accustomed to partnering with Product and Design teams to get stuff done. Most importantly, you’ll foster collaboration for shared outcomes.

So, what is important to us?

  • Demonstrable experience leading Engineering teams — it’s not about the number of years, but more about the type of exposure in developing high-performing teams.

  • A track record in building and deploying production scale platforms — you partner with distributed Product and Design teams to deliver engaging product experiences.

  • Proven success in growing and developing others — having coached engineers on developing their craft and supporting their career progression.
