Their initial focus has been to provide an exceptional user experience - this serves, and will continue to serve as a strong differentiator and moat compared to their competitors. It allows them to follow product-led growth, with bottom-up adoption inside of organisations.
Up to now, most of their focus has been on frontend engineering - where they have built a solid foundation, and continue to push to boundaries.
As both product matures, and user needs grow, they see the strong opportunity (and requirement from customers) to level up their backend stack to a platform which can drive additional business growth and product capabilities.
With the recent raise, and strong, 4x YoY growth, they are willing to aggressively invest in this area, further increasing competitive advantage and moats.
The individual in this role is expected to lead strategy, execution and related activities within this domain. This also includes budget planning, hiring and managing individuals within this team - at the start directly individual contributors, and over time engineering managers.
The role will directly report to our VP Engineering and will continue to focus on building and running the user facing product - and engineering organisation.
- Previous experience developing technical architecture and strategy within a similar technology leadership role
- Knowledge of delivering on the long-term engineering strategy within a regulated environment.
- Track record of building world class engineering teams that drive revenue.
- An outstanding communicator who influences stakeholders at all levels
