We're looking for an experienced VP of Engineering to manage a fast-paced development team. Our ideal candidate is eager to lead a team of developers and engineers, collaborate closely with product managers, and improve company policies, standards and engineering habits.

You will be joining an early-stage, fast-growing startup and overseeing the growth of a category-creating new product from beta to true scale, while collaborating daily with the executive leadership team. You'll have the ability and expectation to grow in title, compensation and responsibility as our engineering organization scales.

To be successful as a VP of Engineering, you should have prior organizational leadership experience, be able to collaborate with team members, and be a strategic problem-solver. Ultimately, a top-notch VP of Engineering should demonstrate excellent communication skills, an ability to connect with other engineers and developers, and have an excellent foundation in software design.

  • Experience with PostgreSQL (Or similar relational database)
  • Proficiency in supervised machine learning applications, preferably with neural networks
  • Familiarity with Amazon Web Services
  • Experience leading or managing developer sprints
  • Experience successfully collaborating with or leading distributed teams

Even better if you also have the following:

  • Docker experience
  • Dev-Ops experience
  • Familiarity with Adobe Creative Cloud software (especially Adobe XD)
  • Interest or experience in non-relational databases
  • A grasp on marketing principles and advertising metrics (i.e. ROAS, CTR, CPA, etc.)

Who We Are?

We are Marpipe. (*Insert intro sequence to Rick & Morty*)

We are a martech team that aims to bring data-driven certainty into the world of advertising creative. At a starting point, we do this by taking the artwork people see in digital ads, breaking it down to discrete components, and testing hundreds of permutations to determine which pieces of an ad drive the most customer engagement. We are developing a SaaS platform that takes the tools and techniques we’ve developed, and makes them accessible to anyone with an internet connection. This is where you come in.

As a team, we've been around for about 3 years, but have recently become backed by some of the best partners in the industry, including Adobe, MediaMath, and some of NYC's best VCs.

Job Type: Full-time

Compensation: Combination of salary and equity, commensurate with experience

Location: NYC
