Head of Engineering

Hopin - permanent

United Kingdom

20 Oct

Open to all applicants globally!

We’re looking for a Head of Engineering to build out the tech team, lead and take part in decisions that will ultimately contribute to the future direction of the business.

You will have the opportunity to work within a highly motivated and ambitious team of 6, reporting directly to the CEO & Founder. 

More about Hopin:

Hopin solves the problem with webinars and virtual events. Webinars are one-sided and passive; participants don’t interact with each—a critical component to learning. Unlike Zoom and other video conferencing tools, Hopin focuses on engagement and interaction between users (people-centric), not on screen-watching (powerpoint-centric). 

With Hopin, organizers can build live video events with a Stage (for presentations to hundreds of thousands of people), Sessions (for group breakout discussions of up to ten people), and Networking (for one-on-one meetings). 

Experience

The Head of Engineering should have:

  • Solid Ruby on Rails experience and front-end experience
  • 5+ years’ experience in software engineering
  • 2+ years’ experience in leading and managing cross-functional teams
  • A solid experience working in an agile development environment
  • Polyglot and full-stack understanding of technology
  • Passion for a clean and appropriately tested code
  • Strong analytical and critical thinking

Other relevant skills:

  • Strong background in technology selection & application design
  • Strong understanding of different software development practices & infrastructure, and how each can help ship more value to customers, quicker
  • Proven experience building & nurturing an engineering team
  • High standards, and the pragmatism to understand when to apply them
  • Happy to be hands-on whilst the engineering team grows (our stack is Ruby on Rails/React)
  • Startup/new product experience

Extra bonus points for:

  • Experience with WebRTC, Live Streaming or other related video technologies
  • Willingness to consider managing a fully remote engineering team if decided

Salary and Perks

A competitive starting salary for this role with opportunity to revisit constantly as we scale + equity.

We are currently a remote team, so are open to remote applications from all over the world. However, if you’re based in London you can work with the CEO at the Seedcamp office in the Google for Startups Campus in Shoreditch. 

If you’re interested in applying for this role, please reach out with your resume.
