As a goal-oriented startup, we're in search of a hands-on, proactive guide who can synergize with us to develop products and supercharge our technical prowess. Simply put, we need a leader with programming skills and management abilities, not managers with superficial coding knowledge.
Your responsibilities will include directing and overseeing the technological endeavors our engineering team embarks on. This primarily involves collaboratively conceptualizing and architecting novel features with the team, developing tests, reviewing code integrity, and more. It also encompasses setting priorities, delegating tasks, tracking progress, and ensuring the team adheres to timelines and achieves project completion dates.
As a fledgling startup, we lack firmly established procedures, making it your role to design and execute best practices to enhance the efficiency of our engineering team. This might entail formulating coding norms, initiating quality control processes, integrating project management and collaboration tools, and devising a strategic blueprint for product evolution.
You will be tasked with developing a proficient and motivated team capable of actualizing the company's technical objectives. Identifying the crucial competencies and expertise needed by the team, recruiting and assimilating new team members, and providing continuous coaching and support to foster their professional development will be crucial.
Your aim should be to constantly seek methods to enhance the team's procedures, productivity, and deliverables. This might involve keeping abreast of emerging technologies, participating in industry functions, and inspiring the team to experiment with innovative solutions to technical hurdles.
