Vice President of Product & Platform Engineering

  • Job Tag: #LI-ZK1
  • Posted: March 10,2022

Our client is a fast-growing green energy technology company on the East Coast with a technical team based here in Minnesota. As a company of 170 employees, we have been retained by this organization to recruit their first Vice President of Product & Platform Engineering.

This role reports to the CTO, and soon enough will be presenting to the board of directors. To be a fit, we are looking for a proven leader within a modern technology environment. With a dotted line to ~30 FTE and ~20 contractors, this person should have risen the technical ranks and have experience with a high-growth department.

From a technical perspective, they are moving their legacy applications (and building all new applications) using modern JavaScript (React/NodeJS) and Snowflake, Tableau, AWS. This role would be far less technical, and far more leadership-oriented as we're looking for someone to develop their direct reports and coach them to the next level (4-6 people).

When it comes to culture, someone that can help foster a positive, creative and collaborative workplace will thrive. This organization has an incredible foundation, and the employees are proud of what they work on and who they work with.

This organization can offer outstanding benefits, competitive when it comes to base salary, and a strong equity stake. They are seeing 30% YOY growth and have plans in place to help continue at that trajectory.

If you are interested and qualified, please apply.
