Engineering Lead l Shared Services

| Marina Del Rey & Playa Vista

We’re looking for humble, but ambitious, razor-sharp Engineering Leader 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 Leader to drive technical vision and provide leadership for multiple teams of engineers and other creators in an innovative and fast paced environment. Our selection process will emphasize technical and architectural skills as well as leadership/management/SDLC process/organizational skills equally. The ideal candidate must be a master of their domain. Furthermore, the ideal candidate must be able to inspire, champion and teach when the need arises. We are looking for someone who’s is equally comfortable leading by influence or authority. Lastly, 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 management leaders.

Why We Need This Role

We are looking for a leader to help us build out a portal of tools, services and workflows that our Capacity Partners will leverage as they establish and manage their respective partnerships with us and help us turn client’s ideas into a fully functioning software. This includes everything from partner client contract execution to dashboards as well as creator assessment and onboarding tools and tools that allow partners to manage rates or availability of their respective creators. We want to do this to enable our partners to leapfrog their fiscal and operational efficiency as well as their stickiness with us.

Why You Should Join

This is a challenging and diverse role that requires you to build both, an organization and new generation of Builder product, nearly from the ground up. Only join this role if you are craving rapid growth, able to create a path in unchartered territory, and comfortable with trying, failing and course-correcting fast.

An Insider's view of Builder

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Builder is a team that respects what each person brings to the table. We support and listen to each other, as well as have a lot of fun. I'm excited to come to work each day not just to work on our disruptive product, but because I'm excited to see my team. We're a group of fun, silly, entrepreneurial people.


Senior Recruiter

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.


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.


Account Executive

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

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.
