Role overview

At Flipside Crypto, we develop tools and products that the world’s leading blockchains use to convert complex blockchain data into actionable insights.

We’re seeking a Director of Engineering to manage and shape the engineering organization in its next phase of growth. You will manage a diverse group of engineers with extensive experience across data pipelining, distributed databases and at-scale web applications. You will also work alongside product leadership, playing an active role in roadmap planning and the development of quarterly implementation plans. Day-to-day you will support engineering team leads by mentoring and guiding them in the accurate breakdown and execution of product requirements. You will also refine team-wide processes, and minimize dependencies between Flipside’s expanding suite of products.

In this role you will:

  • Oversee and manage all engineering teams, from data engineering, to backend, and to front-end.
  • Work closely with the Head of Product to define product requirements, own implementation plans, and deliver on quarterly product roadmaps.
  • Own and manage the entire sprint process. This includes developing processes for breaking down work, developing estimates and ensuring the timely completion of multiple complex, independent projects.
  • Ensure the reliability and up-time of Flipside’s core infrastructure, services and products to meet customer SLAs.
  • Develop processes for QA, that ensure the integrity of Flipside’s products and data.
  • Guide the engineering team in developing technical strategies that will enable Flipside’s products to scale in a repeatable fashion across our customer base.
  • Recruit, mentor, and lead a team of engineering managers and individual contributors.
  • Report directly to the CTO.

About you:

People: you see the potential of what can be created when a talented team of engineers come together, and you are relentless and passionate about building these teams.

You have experience managing a team of 10+ engineers. You also have the capacity to mentor individual engineers in their career growth and map that to the roadmap of the organization.

You have 8+ years of engineering experience working across the full stack (infrastructure ops, database systems, backend and front-end), with at least 5 years managing engineering teams building SaaS products.

Planning & Delivery: you have extensive experience working alongside product managers in an agile manner to ensure the reliable planning, estimation and prioritization of new product features, in addition to the active management of a backlog, and customer reported issues. You know how to empower the engineering team to achieve their goals in a cross functional and timely sprint process.

You are able to wade through chaos, deliver in a fast-paced environment, and re-prioritize work when necessary.

You recognize that there isn’t always one perfect solution to a problem and you provide your team with the room to take ownership to run with an idea. You also know when to jump in, and course correct.

Product: you optimize for building and shipping product quickly. You foster a culture that constantly ships new features in an iterative fashion in order to gather customer feedback early. You also ensure the speed and reliability of the product by creating a culture of operational excellence through real-time alerting and monitoring, and processes for trouble-shooting issues as they arise.

You understand the life-cycle of data across the stack, from raw unstructured data, to its ultimate presentation in a front-end customer-facing product.

You aren’t afraid to roll up your sleeves and be “hands on” as needed. While you won’t be coding every day, you should be able to assist and solve problems as they arise.

You work relentlessly towards your goals, and care a great deal about building quality products with a talented, authentic team.
