Director of Engineering

New York, United States


605 is looking for a dynamic Director of Engineering to serve as a technical thought leader and engineer for the organization and help build out new products. As the Director of Engineering, you’ll be responsible for writing code with and managing the engineering team, as well as collaborating with product owners on the direction of our platform and product. As part of a small but rapidly growing company, you’ll wear a number of hats and be willing -- and excited -- to get your hands dirty with the team.

You should be as comfortable in a shell or IDE as you are in a product planning meeting. Being comfortable with the full stack and having experience with a broad range of technologies is critical; this is not a position for someone who has not coded since they got their degree. In any given week, we have engineers writing frontend apps and services (in Python, Ruby, and Java), tweaking ML algorithms, processing terabytes of data, writing Spark jobs, and working with analysts and statisticians. You need not be an expert in every language or technology we use, but must be willing to learn when required. Above all, you’re someone who wants to gain managerial responsibilities while still coding with awesome big data technologies.
