Director of Development (100% Remote)
Tremendous opportunity for a Director or Manager of Development/Engineering to join a growing technology company.
You will provide technical leadership and management, manage and drive the development of the next generation platform (from the planning stage through production), prototype new ideas and make individual code contributions when necessary, collaborate within and across cross-functional teams, continue to develop and improve delivery processes, mentor and help engineers grow and develop in their careers and professional skills, deliver projects against technical roadmap, and create a culture that encourages open communication, accountability, creativity, and innovation.
The focus of this job is technical leadership and management, however, you must be able to participate in architecture discussions and some prototyping but not hard core coding.
This is a direct hire position where you can work 100% remote from your home and live anywhere. Awesome opportunity to make an impact at a growing technology company.
