Want to help make the world a safer, more sustainable and more creative place? It may sound like a lofty goal, but that's exactly what we're doing at Black Spectacles. Our platform attracts architects around the world who want to push the limits of their industry. Our content - which includes podcasts, design tutorials and exam prep - helps architects keep pace with emerging technologies and software so they can do their best work.

Black Spectacles is a Great Place to Work-Certified company and ranked #11 in Education on the INC. 5000 America's Fastest Growing Company List in 2019. To keep that momentum going strong, we're expanding our team of enthusiastic go-getters. We're on the hunt for a Director of Engineering to manage and scale our technology team.

You will:

  • Develop Technology Leadership & Strategy (what technology should we use and why)

  • Understand and contribute to the development of Product Strategy

  • Recruit, manage and mentor/coach our technology team

  • Develop our Technology Culture: ie, standards and processes, and ensure their adherence

  • Develop goals for the team and work to ensure they achieve them

  • Manage workload for the dev team & ensure they hit their quality and deadline goals

You have 10 or more years experience in development and a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science (or related field) or equivalent work experience.

You're not afraid to ask questions and are open to constructive criticism. You're an enthusiastic self-starter who takes ownership of your work.

You've lead a team and managed people, and understand what being a technology mentor means.

Required prior successes:

  • Migration of monolithic application(s) to a microservice architecture

  • Deployment of orchestration services (e.g., Kubernetes, CloudFormation, etc.)

  • Evaluation, configuration, and deployment of enterprise-grade, open-source software

  • Accountability for applications over their full life cycle

Additional nice-to-have experiences include: Canvas, Moodle, Magento, Drupal, React (Angular or similar), integration of third party APIs, Amazon Elastic Beanstalk, EC2s, RDS (Aurora), Photoshop and/or Sketch basics.

  • Unlimited Vacation

  • Blue Cross Blue Shield health, dental, vision, short-term / long-term disability and life insurance.
