VP of Engineering
Exciting news - Mixmax hit $10 million in annual revenue and we’re profitable! We just raised more money and are looking to invest more to accelerate growth. We are looking for a VP of Engineering to help take us to the next level. We are 40+ people, working as a fully distributed team (no office) across the US, LatAm, and Europe. We are profitable and fund growth with our own revenue, which we believe is the best way to create a generational company.
You’ll report to the CEO. You’ll own outcomes as an executive on the leadership team, and be accountable for product execution, quality, and reliability, and growing our distributed engineering team (currently ~15 people). While this is an executive role, at our size you're also expected to be a “player-coach”, e.g., be able to dive into technical details if necessary.
You have ridiculously high expectations of your teams, and you love firing them up, no matter what needs to get done. You’re also an active listener, and supportive and empathetic. You love recruiting and building ever-stronger, diverse teams.
Last, we hope to get you excited about our mission: eliminating busywork for people in customer-facing roles! This is an underserved market, and we have the easiest-to-use product in the space. We hope you’re as thrilled about building a category-defining SaaS product as we are!
This is a really unique opportunity to shape the future of a profitable and fully distributed company at an inflection point in its growth.
Areas that energize you, and where we want you to have an outsize impact:
# Execution & development process
We’re the innovation leader in our market, so the product experience is critical to our success. Help take us to the next level: How do we narrow our focus to improve our velocity? How do we structure our teams and modify processes to execute better? How do we ensure more predictable delivery and quantify our progress?
# Quality & reliability
We power business-critical workflows in companies with thousands of employees, so quality and reliability are paramount. How do we reduce our bug volume, bring down tech debt judiciously, and prevent regressions? What metrics can we show demonstrable progress on? Can quality unlock faster development and growth? Help us evolve our culture and practices. You know how to strike the appropriate balance between scrappiness and durability.
# Growing the team
Help us scale and level up, both by bringing in new, diverse talent, and by growing leaders and domain experts internally. We wouldn’t be surprised if you have a following, because people know they accelerate their careers under your leadership. On the flipside, you graciously manage low performance. We have the basics of leveling matrices, mentorship/feedback processes and would like your help in developing these further. One of our company values is ‘building strength in our differences’, and while we’ve made strides in creating a more diverse team, we still have ways to go.
- 7+ years of management experience, with at least 2 years of executive leadership experience.
- Experience working at early stage startups (<100 people).
- Experience scaling engineering teams up to 50 people. Bonus points for having done it in a fully-distributed/remote model, across time zones.
- Expertise in building B2B SaaS products
- Experience in building the “easiest-to-use” and/or SMB product in your space.
- Reported into CEO / worked on an exec team.
- As a distributed team, we mainly rely on asynchronous communication. That being said, sometimes live collaboration is critical, and you'll want to make yourself available to overlap with teammates across EMEA to US pacific time zones (probably ~3h per day).
