WORK WITH TOP 1% OF GLOBAL TALENT

If you are a world-class software engineering leader with the intellectual curiosity and desire to execute to a drastically differentiated cutting edge new software engineering process; if you have a passion for metrics-driven approach to high quality software development;  if you possess senior organizational leadership, combined with the deep technical experience necessary to manage software engineering for a portfolio of software companies generating $100M annually — this role is for you.


The VP of Engineering will serve as a key member of the global executive team for one of our affiliated sister companies and will be responsible for quarterly high-quality product delivery.  As part of the leadership team, you will be expected to run an engineering organization using a revolutionary and radically differentiated process. With a focus on small, great global teams, productivity, factory-like process, and quantifiable business impact, you will be expected to drive higher levels of value and productivity from your engineering organization than most companies would expect to achieve. You must build, develop and engage a team from a global talent pool. In doing so, you must set an agenda for the function where the teams effectively and efficiently solve some of the most challenging software problems with engineers distributed around the globe. You will leverage your personal technical depth as a as a former developer and architect in order to set a personal standard for Computer Science excellence, to push your teams and to assess the talent base you need to maintain.

 

Key Responsibilities

  • Drive rigorous, regular product releases across multiple, complex software products

  • Establish world-class standards and technical operations to deliver consistent, high-quality products across dispersed, global teams

  • Implement engineering management strategies to achieve world-class productivity and cost efficiency

  • Engage with customers and product managers to ensure that product delivery obsessively aligns with customer value creation

  • Transform existing teams of engineers and architects and development managers into a highly effective engineering function, including upgrading and reorganizing our talent as required

  • Engage and align top talent through strong recruitment, mentoring, hands-on architectural leadership and career management

  • Lead product technical due diligence and engineering talent assessment for 2-4 acquired or to-be-acquired companies each year

  • Transform acquired engineering teams into an effective and efficient global model to increase quality and reduce cost over pre-acquisition benchmarks

Candidate Requirements

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science (MS or PhD preferred) is absolutely mandatory.

  • 15+ years of engineering experience leading multiple teams across multiple products and technologies — this is a global leadership role for a seasoned software development leader, not a first executive role for a great software development manager

  • Experience is Software Engineering focused instead of product management

  • Proven experience in building high-performance teams and scalable best engineering practices

  • Spent 5 years in hands-on C++, Java or .NET architecture and programming in a hands-on, development-intensive individual contributor role

  • Recent experience with DevOps and Cloud architecture. We live in the Cloud.

  • Experience with high-end enterprise systems deployed in environments of Global 100 corporation complexity

VPs of Engineering have an exciting career opportunity with increasing levels of responsibility, impact, and compensation.  Hiring Managers actively work to develop talent and grow from within where possible.

Step 1: Online Application

Start your application by creating an account and profile with Crossover, then uploading your resume and confirming your email address. From there, the Crossover platform will guide you through the remaining steps.

Step 2: Take the English and Fundamentals Test

We have a series of multiple-choice tests to check for the knowledge and skills needed for the role and an English exam where we ask candidates to upload a 2-3 minute audio submission. After this stage, you will receive an email invitation to the next step in the application process.


Step 3: Free Response Questions and CCAT Testing

In this step, we will ask you a series of free response questions that will simulate scenarios you are likely to encounter in the role. We find both the willingness to invest this time – coupled with the insights we derive from the answers – help us find the truly capable and passionate candidates. You may also be asked to make a presentation of your answers to demonstrate your communication skills. The free response section is an opportunity to preview the type of work you would be doing in the role and demonstrate your technical skills and abilities to hiring managers. The last free response question will invite you to complete CCAT testing. The CCAT measures cognitive aptitude or general intelligence, and tests an ability to solve problems, digest and apply information, learn new skills, and think critically.


Step 4: Join the Interview

The final step of the evaluation process is the marketplace interview. One of our hiring manager evaluators will speak with you on a video call to understand if you're the best fit for the position. In addition to technical and business questions about your current and previous roles and achievements, you may be asked about the answers you gave in your free response questions.


Step 5: Meet the Customer and Get Hired

If you successfully pass all stages of the evaluation process, you will have the opportunity to talk with hiring managers about the positions that are currently available. This is intended to be a two-way discussion where you can ask questions about the team, product, metrics, roadmap, etc. You can interview with as many hiring managers as desired and make the decision on which company or team best fits your interests and career goals.
