The Role

We’re a passionate team focused on making it easier for winemakers to make great wine. Now we’re excited to be hiring our first Director of Engineering. If you join us, you’ll lead our incredibly talented software engineering team, helping us build out the experience that is the core of our business and increase the velocity with which we ship features to our customers, while improving quality, transparency and predictability. You’ll work closely with Product, Design, and other teams to plan and execute key initiatives. In close collaboration with our CTO, you’ll set the vision for how we evolve our technology stack to deliver a world-class customer experience and support ambitious business growth. Reporting to the company’s co-founder and CTO, the Director of Engineering is a key, visible role within the company.

What You Offer

  • You ship. You lead teams that consistently deliver great software.
  • You’re passionate. You know you’ll become as passionate as we are about improving the lives of winery personnel via better software!
  • You hustle. You err on the side of urgency. You own your outcomes.
  • You’re a leader. You are a gifted mentor, an effective manager, and an inspiring leader who thrives on developing others.
  • You’re ambitious. You want to make a big impact on our company’s success.
  • You’re a team builder. You know how to attract the right people to join your team.
