JOB - VP of Engineering/CTO - San Francisco, CA
This is a full time, on-site, salaried VP of Engineering position located in
San Francisco, CA paying $150,000 to $175,000 depending on experience +
start-up equity package and benefits. No telecommuting allowed. US Citizens
or Green Card holders only please. Local candidates *strongly* preferred,
but applicants with perfect-match qualifications interested in relocating
considered too. Thank you.
** Candidates MUST be coming out of a similar type of start-up. The area is
called 'media curation' or in other words: online picture sharing. Our
client is a Ruby shop so it's a huge plus to have a Rails background, but at
this level it's not as important as having a similar background.
Our client is one of the fastest growing social media websites in the Web
today with over 700M monthly page views and 20M global unique visitors.
Their recently-released iOS app went to #1 in the Social Networking category
in 19 countries. They do all of this with an extremely small team of
entrepreneurs and engineers. This is a rare opportunity to make an immediate
impact at an early-stage startup that has already achieved product / market
fit. The company is based in San Francisco and backed by world-class
investors with deep pockets.
Our client is looking for an experienced VP of Engineering to take ownership
of all of the technical aspects of the company, including development of
both their site and mobile apps and all supporting infrastructure. The ideal
candidate will have had a similar role at one or more startups, leading them
through periods of high growth, and will be used to managing high-traffic
sites. The company's team is both local and offshore, and the ideal
candidate will have experience leading a distributed team using agile
processes. Experience recruiting engineers
Although development is not expected to be a large part of the VP
Engineering's responsibilities, the ideal candidate will have hands-on
experience with full-stack web development. The ideal candidate will also
have had responsibility for network operation / infrastructure and should be
capable of managing systems administrators / DevOps engineers. iOS and/or
Android development would be a major plus, as would Big Data experience.
