VP of Engineering

Company: 605
Location: Walton
Posted on: April 10, 2021

Job Description:

605 is an independent TV measurement and analytics firm that offers advertising and content measurement, full-funnel attribution, media planning, optimization and analytical solutions. Comprised of engineers, analysts, data scientists, media experts and marketing strategists, 605 forges new paths using groundbreaking innovations that set industry standards for audience targeting and measurement.

605 is looking for a dynamic Vice President of Engineering to serve as a technical thought leader, partially-hands-on manager and mentor to our talented team of data and software engineers, and technical partner to our Product, Analytics and Operations teams. As the VP of Engineering, you'll be responsible for all of our software- and data-engineering initiatives, including architecture and design, standards, infrastructure, and overall management, recruiting, talent development and organization of our Engineering team.

You'll be an engaged partner with other department heads throughout the company, with whom you'll work as a team to manage the growth, scale and evolution of our products, services, and the operational needs that underlie our data accuracy and excellence in product delivery. As we continue to rapidly grow our company and our client base, you'll wear a number of hats and be willing -- and excited -- to get your hands dirty with your engineers, with your peers, and with senior management.

You should be as comfortable in a shell or IDE as you are in a product planning meeting. Being familiar with the full stack - in particular with data engineering - and having experience with a broad range of technologies is critical; this is not a position for someone who has not coded since they got their degree. In any given week, we have engineers writing client-facing applications, ingesting and transforming terabytes of data from numerous sources, working on methodological algorithms, writing Spark and Airflow jobs, building and managing mammoth infrastructure, and collaborating with PhD-level data scientists and analysts. You need not be an expert in every language or technology we use, but must be willing to learn when required. Above all, you're someone who wants to take on significant team leadership responsibilities while still working hands-on with cutting-edge "big data" technologies.

This role is responsible for

  • Serving as a technical thought leader, architect and designer for the organization
  • Managing, mentoring, coaching and growing the Engineering team
  • Collaborating with product owners and senior leadership on the direction of our data platform and products
  • Reviewing and occasionally writing code
  • Regularly coordinating across teams to deliver against our product roadmap
  • Setting standards for excellence in technical delivery, including data pipelines, applications, and infrastructure

    • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or equivalent
    • At least 5-7 years of experience working as a software engineer in increasingly senior roles
    • At least 5-7 years of experience managing and growing dispersed and heterogeneous engineering teams of at least 50-100 people
    • Strong understanding of and experience as an Agile Scrum / SAFe practitioner
    • Excellent understanding of data structures, algorithms, and effective software design
    • Experience with "big data" processing and pipelines, databases, data lakes, OLAP data solutions, and an understanding of how to achieve optimal downstream data quality with noisy inputs. Some of our key tools include Spark, Databricks and Airflow.
    • Proficiency with SQL and RDBMSs, large-scale database solutions such as Redshift, Clickhouse, Snowflake, Pinot, Druid or others, and NoSQL solutions such as MongoDB, DynamoDB and others
    • Significant development experience with a lower-level language (e.g. Java, C/C++, C#)
    • Familiarity with at least one web application framework and a solid understanding of the MVC design pattern
    • Familiarity with front-end languages, especially Javascript, HTML5, and CSS3
    • Experience writing unit and functional tests, especially related to data pipelines
    • A good understanding of large infrastructure, the role of Devops in the product delivery and operational process, IaC, containerization
    • Comfort with version control systems (e.g. Git, SVN)
    • An understanding of where and how information security meets engineering in a data-based environment where protection of intellectual property and client data is paramount
    • Experience building and delivering in a cloud-first environment, preferably with depth in AWS storage and compute infrastructure
    • Excellent verbal and written communication skills; a proven ability to cultivate relationships with peers in other departments; the ability and desire to work well in a highly agile, collaborative team environment; an approach to work and life which incorporates "hearts and minds" and "the art of the possible"

      Preferred Skills
      • Master's in Computer Science or a related field
      • Domain familiarity with the TV, media, and advertising landscape, media measurement, and the cross-platform / digital ecosystem
      • Familiarity with data science, machine learning, and working with data scientists and data analysts
      • Experience wrangling terabytes of big, complicated, imperfect data
      • Background with test-driven development
      • A love of learning, an understanding that experimentation and invention are requirements for building great products, and comfort operating - and leading - in an environment of uncertainty and change

        • Comprehensive health and dental insurance for employees and their families
        • Life insurance
        • 401k with match, eligible for match after one year
        • Pre-tax flexible compensation plan for medical, transit, parking or dependent care expenses
        • PTO & Sick days-if you're sick, you stay home
        • Work-from-home Fridays
        • A kitchen stocked with sodas, snacks, yogurt and other goodies
        • A tight-knit startup community who likes to eat! We celebrate everyone's birthdays, have frequent team lunches, and do events in and out of the office
        • 605 is an active participant in conferences
