Director of Software Engineering

Director of Software Engineering
London, UK

At Red Ventures, our team of highly motivated engineers are busy creating technology solutions from the ground up to guide our business into the future. We are a team who solves business problems through our use of technology and proprietary software applications, and we need an innovative leader to contribute to our strategy and bring us into the next generation of technology.

As we launch our London office, our team is looking for a visionary who possesses the ability to lead from the front-lines, work closely with the executive team from the beginning to develop a culture of innovation, guide and integrate teams with product management, interpret business and analytics data to lead application priorities, and make difficult decisions that will shape the strategy of our technology. Leading by example as we build our technology team from the ground up in the U.K.

In this role, you will be working with multiple projects across industries while also interfacing with outside industry leaders to determine key objectives and strategize team priorities. Our Directors have the unique opportunity to build and lead powerhouse technology teams while also remaining technically proficient themselves, as they assist in building our customer web applications and platforms.

We are looking for a leader who loves to continuously challenge themselves and those around them to improve. You will have full ownership of your position and your team. At Red Ventures, we work fast, fail fast, and recover fast. We learn from our mistakes, and we grow as individuals and as a team every day. 

Key Highlights of the Role:

  • In the Director of Software Engineering role, it is up to you to evolve your team’s technical depth, break large-scale problems into manageable phases and quickly deliver solutions to the business. If you like the challenge of fixing things more quickly and more efficiently than the other team, this is the role for you!
  • Red Ventures values individual autonomy. We pride ourselves on being an environment for opportunity and growth regardless of your title, tenure or team. You will work alongside business and marketing leaders to rapidly translate business requirements into final products.
  • As a Director of Software Engineering, you will be a hands-on player and a coach. You possess the capability to push the bounds of your team’s abilities in growing them individually and as a unit, while also remaining hands on yourself in developing our applications and tools. At Red Ventures, we maintain a tight loop between development, feedback and deployment. That's why we're so good at building world-class solutions for our unique business, marketing and data quandaries.
  • You can make non-technical decisions while continuing to evolve the technical depth of Red Ventures. Our future Director of Engineering is no stranger to business and how tech can contribute and compliment to all areas of the company.

If you are interested in learning as much as you are in teaching others, whether in technology or in any number of our community involvement programs, Red Ventures would love to meet you.
