Engineering Director

Making engineering a fundamental part of the design process

YOU: A design-driven coder, thinker, and problem solver who brings ideas into reality through the rigorous articulation of creative, strategic, and technical concepts.

THEM: A Brooklyn-based ‘agency’ that focuses solely on user-centered websites and platforms. If you’re in to Flash and/or advertising campaigns, you’ve come to the wrong place. This shop is all about creating modern interactive systems, using an interdisciplinary approach that blends the practices of design, technology and branding.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Lead technology work streams across concurrent projects
  • Ensure the highest quality output
  • Support and improve the developer experience (DX)
  • On time, on budget- you can assess recommendations against scope, cost, and craft contingency plans
  • Design strategic application architecture recommendations and scope technical builds in the RFP and new business process
  • Protect and drive productivity, efficiency, and optimization that bolsters developer happiness. From the perspective of developer experience, you are chiefly concerned with process optimization— how we work together.
  • Support and navigate technical aspects of the office operations.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • 5-8 years experience
  • You are craft-driven — as a seasoned application engineer with back-end development experience in an agency environment, you’ve developed and lead large-scale and concurrent technology engagements.
  • You have advanced knowledge and mastery of programming languages, frameworks and architectural patterns. Including: PHP, Laravel, Ruby on Rails, WordPress, SQL, queues, services, concurrency, load balancing, reliability, and failover. You know all about these languages and can propose alternative solutions and cost-benefit analysis based on these technologies.
  • You can review business requirements to craft a system architecture that meets and exceeds client needs. You reduce risk and deliver builds on time and on budget without diminishing code quality.
  • You’re comfortable conversing with clients both technical and non-technical alike to sell through your recommendation.
