The software that you build will be used by some of the largest companies in the world.

Timing. It's good to be early. We're backed by leading investors NEA (New Enterprise Associates) and GV (Google Ventures).

The Role:

Reporting to the CEO, the Director of Engineering will be responsible for taking the client into its next phase of growth. This person will own the growth, development, and structure of the engineering team and work hand-in-hand with Product to create new lines and continue to strengthen the existing core of our business. Does the acronym RPF sound daunting? That’s because it is, or at least it was before we came along. We like to think we disentangle daunting processes with simplified solutions. We need to fill this role with a leader, mentor, and forward-thinking problem solver who is ready to own the role, the team, and engineering quality going forward.


About You:

  • An engineering pacesetter -- you lead, others follow. You’ve cut your chops at a big company and you have experience, you may have even been through an incubator and tried to launch your own idea at some point. Deadlines and product delivery success are milestones that you hang your hat on. This is not your first rodeo.


  • The Coach with the Most. You see potential in young and eager devs who just need exposure, direction, and guidance in order to excel. The chance to mold and develop talent is something that you are not only good at but enjoy as well. Managing a team is something that you have not only done, but done successfully.

  • “Wreck-It-Ralph (or Raquel)” -- Building new software, putting processes in place, using new technologies and doing the heavy lifting on releases are all part of your job. You like to look at the options, put together a plan and run it through to completion.

  • Traffic Cop -- You work at the intersection of Product, Customer Success, and Operations. Customers need new features, products need better usability, and we need more sources of sales revenue. Working with users and interdepartmental success requires a high social IQ. This person enjoys being involved in the evolution of the business and helps advance accomplishments across the organization as a whole. 


  • Hands-on software development and engineering team management.

  • Work alongside and collaborate with the product team to deliver products, features, services, and tools.

  • Partner with C-level leadership to manage department expectations and deliverables.

  • Assist our team in recruiting top-notch talent, build new dev teams going forward and scale our current squad.

  • Build and organize the engineering team for delivering best-of-breed solutions in a rapidly growing environment.

Benefits. We are adding them, not scaling back. Medical, dental and vision coverage. Health Savings Accounts. Pre-tax commuter benefits. Lunch on Fridays. We are continuing always evaluate our options to do what we can to bring the best to our employees.

Transparency. Lots of companies say it, few of them actually live it.
