The role in context
We are looking for a Head of Engineering to set up and lead our engineering department and help us bring our product to Enterprise level maturity. You’ll manage our software architecture, our cloud infrastructure, and the deployment of new features. You ensure all internal systems and our integrations with third parties operate effectively, efficiently, and securely.
Simply put, your goal is to enable the hyper-growth of our company from an engineering standpoint.
In your first months, you’ll work with our outsourced development team in Spain to learn the code base and co-develop features. Gradually, you’ll take over the project management role. In parallel, you will build our own development team and decide how you allocate responsibilities to internal and external resources.
To be successful in this role, you should be capable and confident managing a development team, defining the technology roadmap, and setting goals, budgets, and timelines for all engineering efforts.
You report to the COO and co-founder, Otto Verhage.
At TestGorilla, we envision a world where everyone has their dream job. To achieve that, employers and employees need to have the right information about each other. We started in 2020 by building a product that provides this information in the selection phase of recruitment. It replaces subjective, incomplete, and often inflated CVs with objective, reliable, and fair test results that measure aptitude, practical job skills, culture add, and motivation. But this is only the start or our journey to get everyone their dream job.
Early 2020 we attracted $1.2M in seed funding. We’ve been live commercially since July. Our growth is very steep – all SaaS metrics seem to indicate we’re on the right track. We get daily requests from VC investors to talk about our next round.
We work remotely, spread across Amsterdam, Barcelona, Florida, Granada, New York, Serbia, and South Carolina.
Joining TestGorilla means you’re joining a group of people who are committed to a set of values that guide our behaviors and decisions day to day:
