Technical Lead

| Marina Del Rey & Playa Vista

We’re looking for humble, but ambitious, razor-sharp technical lead who can teach us a thing or two. We promise to return the favor. Like us, you take product development, API, Analytics and ML or AI platform engineering seriously; you’re passionate about technology and, even more so, about leadership. We embrace those who see things differently, aren’t afraid to experiment, and who have a healthy disregard for constraints. That’s where you come in. We are currently seeking an engineering Technical Lead to drive technical vision and execution as well as provide architectural and functional leadership to a team of engineers in an innovative and fast paced environment. Our selection process will emphasize software engineering and architecture skills as well as SDLC or scrum process organizational skills equally. The ideal candidate must be a master of the engineering domain and be able to contribute as an individual contributor (software engineer and architect) at least half of the time. We are looking for someone who is equally comfortable leading by influence or authority. Last, we are looking for a rare mix of intelligence, integrity, domain knowledge, verbal agility, and diplomacy which allows you to rapidly earn the trust of technically astute engineers and product astute product managers.

Why We Need This Role

We are looking for a leader to help us build out a set of AI powered tools and services which will allow us to pro-grammatically assemble licensed client applications from the building blocks of code. This includes, but not limited to, developing ESB technology that will serve as assembly foundation for said assemblies to programmatic orchestration of underpinning infrastructure. We want to do this to disrupt and automate software development in a similar fashion Henry Ford’s assembly lines disrupted and automated car manufacturing.

An Insider's view of Engineer.ai

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Engineer.ai LA is a bunch of hardworking people in open and fun atmosphere. We're playful - we bond over our favorite food trucks and spar over who controls the office playlist. Calling us a family may be cliche, but it's pretty accurate.

Jordan

Customer Product Expert

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Through our Builder product, we’re making software accessible to everyone. It’s cool because software engineering has been disrupting industries since the 1980s but never evolving its own and I’m excited to be a part of the team that’s doing just that.

Alex

Global Vice President of Engineering

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My career has grown leaps and bounds since being at Engineer.ai. When I first started, my focus was primarily on lead generation and business development. My role since then has transformed into much more as I've had the opportunity to dabble in sales, partnership related initiatives and product management to some extent.

We look for people who are passionate about loosely held beliefs. We have a culture which encourages our people to be curious, experiment, and use their experienced points of view to challenge the status quo. We start with why in everything we do, it's part of our core DNA. We want everyone to be entrepreneurial.
