Title: Head of Engineering

Location: United States

We are looking for a Head of Engineering to continue building and innovating on our customer-facing product. We are at the early stages of leaning into a new model that operates as a marketplace – talented freelance marketers on the supply side, and brands with great products looking to grow on the demand side. To achieve our goals we need to build a product that both types of users find invaluable. We are building something that has never been built before.

This is an ideal opportunity for an engineering leader looking to build and lead a global team in a high-impact environment. You will own the development process from design to implementation to launch. This role is remote-friendly and may be done from anywhere in the United States.

    • Have a good background in algorithms, systems, and design
    • Work well with a multidisciplinary team, and communicate actively
    • Think independently and love sharing your technical knowledge with others
    • Aren’t afraid to roll your sleeves up – this role will require coding in addition to management as you lead the growth of our engineering team
    • Probably have a technical degree and 5+ years of experience – including 1+ years of engineering leadership experience (startup and/or top tech company experience a plus)


    • Are a small, dedicated team of smart, experienced engineers, product folks, and creativesLove Github, Slack, Asana, AWS, Meteor, Node
    • Hate useless meetings, value your time, and enjoy a good work/life balance
    • Are data-driven, and take product ideas from the whole team
