Competition for top talent is real and aggressive, and employees are the most important resource for tech companies like us. This means you’ll need to have strategic vision as well as a strong understanding of the tech talent market to lead your team towards success.

Here is what we will look at in your profile:

  • 2 years of experience with managing, coaching and leading a high performing team
  • Successful track record of filling both high volume and\or specialized engineering, product and analytics roles

  • Strong organizational and project management skills including the ability to establish milestones, identify dependencies, and drive results all while respecting the timeframe
  • You have a data driven perspective as well as a good emotional intelligence to understand the audience and collaborate with your main stakeholders
  • You are curious and enjoy discussing technical topics and staying up to date with the technical market. Maybe you even learned to code in the past?
