VP of Engineering

Hofy is redefining the way organisations oversee their remote and hybrid workplaces. Our easy-to-use platform is central to that and we are looking for a VP of Engineering with a vision to create our tech strategy and roadmap. We have a small but mighty team of engineers and we will be looking to expand that with you.

In short:

  • Remote - GMT +/-3hrs - Reporting to the CEO
  • Create and own the whole tech strategy and roadmap, lead team through a significant expansion
  • We are looking for an Engineering Leader who will empower our engineers to do their best work!

About the role

This role will be the first of its kind so while we have an idea of the outcomes we’d like for you to achieve, there is a lot for you to design on how you get there! In this role you will:

  • Work with the team to enable execution, and remove blockers. This will include implementing processes and managing resource allocation (aka managing the balance of scope/schedule/resources).
  • Drive hiring, motivation, growth with everyone in your team. Understand motivations, strengths, and growth opportunities and how we can develop each team member.
  • Cultivate a great culture where team members can do their best work. Promote transparency at all levels, ownership, feedback, and accountability, high I/O, learning and teaching, good decision making, and a push for very high standards
  • Ensure the team continuously improves. Establish goals and KPIs for the team and/or technical scope, set up processes to ensure we continually track and learn, and drive priorities to improve be it via root cause analyses, post-mortems/retrospectives, and other processes.
  • Develop a quality playbook for the Engineering team, including standards for pull requests, code reviews, testing, and monitoring.

About you

As this is a senior position, ideally you should be able to walk us through how you have “been there - done that” and now are looking to do it all over again. This role is very well suited to you if you are someone who enjoys developing and building teams, processes and strategies. More specifically you will be a great fit if you have:

  • Software engineering background with at least 10 years' experience building software products and scaling teams from 15-20 to closer to 100.
  • Sense of accountability and responsibility and ability to prioritise. Keen eye for problems and inefficiencies, with the ability to find elegant solutions before they become major issues.
  • High I/O, emotionally mature, and humble. A good, deep listener. Willingness to share information proactively and effectively, and cares about being effective over being right. Accepts feedback willingly, and open to seeking opposing points of view.
  • An open-minded learner, keen on learning new things, staying up-to-date with new technologies, tools, and techniques. Inspired by what's possible, and what people inside and outside the company know, as well as eager to incorporate the best. Openness to experimenting, challenging status quo, and taking appropriate risks.
  • A systems thinker: thinks end-to-end about how designs and changes affect the overall service, architecture, codebase, and users, and how it will evolve in the future.
  • Understands and drives techniques for leading projects and improving productivity, raising the visibility of the team’s work within the organisation.
  • Empathetic and happy when helping others succeed. Drives and facilitate clarity when there's ambiguity in what's needed.
