Director Software Engineering – Disruptive New Technology,
We are developing a disruptive technology. It is rare in life for opportunities like this to come up. I feel fortunate I had the opportunity to be involved in one such company as a director – Blackberry. Now I will have another opportunity. You will be required to sign an NDA BEFORE the interview. There will be a briefing for those who sign the NDA so they understand what is needed. They can then decide if they are still interested.
You would be responsible for recruiting, leading and inspiring a team of 20-30 developers to start. Ultimately the team will grow to hundreds. Because of high growth, the job will change over time. We are looking for low ego people who will adapt for the good of the company.
We will be developing several apps, scheduling software, video recording etc on a cloud based system. Familiarity with security is important. We will be filing dozens of patents so familiarity with IP is important. We do not have time to train so you need to come with a rich background and experience in leading a tech team.
You will lead scrum at 8:45 AM and lead the daily recap at 5:45 PM. We need a daily pace and movement forward.
The position is located in Guelph.
We are a delayed gratification company. You will not starve but what will ultimately make you rich are the stock options.
You will be working for me CEO, Danby Appliances (but just a hint – this is not about appliances) – Jim Estill.
