PropTech – Birmingham – Head of Engineering

A rare opportunity to join an exciting and highly ambitious PropTech startup; utilising cutting-edge technologies around data, such as Machine Learning and Cognitive Services to build a new and innovative product offering.

With a heavy focus on leveraging data and empirical evidence to inform decision making, we work in an iterative approach; designing, building and trialling concepts to test assumptions and provide validated learning to aid decision making.

There is excellent backing both financially and with a huge amount of industry experience. At a very early stage of formation and growth, you will be a core member of the leadership team, expected to work directly with founding members of the organisation and to make critical business decisions. This is an unparalleled opportunity to help shape the strategy and direction of the business, along with identifying and implementing appropriate technology solutions.

The culture is one of energy, excitement and fun. With a keen awareness that culture makes or breaks a business, we are looking for a passionate candidate to adopt and positively influence our core values. Looking for talented individuals, you will be working with some of the sharpest minds in the field.

We are looking for an experienced professional to champion technical leadership and provide strong people management. You will be relied upon to build a team of motivated best-in-class Engineers, working in a Lean-Agile environment to deliver desired outcomes. You will have a large amount of autonomy to do what is needed to succeed, a clear and meaningful purpose, and backing to demonstrate mastery of the trade. You will also have the support and freedom to ensure industry-leading engineering practices, with a clear focus on customer needs.

The ideal candidate will:

* Be technically adept and have a deep hands-on knowledge of software engineering patterns, practices and architectural principles.

* Be highly motivated, driven and adaptable.

* Be passionate about learning.

* Have 5+ years’ experience working with Cloud-based technologies.

* Have experience working in a start-up.

* Be able to communicate effectively in both technical and business subjects.

* Be able to influence and make business decisions.

* Have experience in forming, running and scaling multi-disciplined engineering teams.

* Provide leadership and mentorship for your team.

* Have demonstrable experience in implementing effective Lean-Agile processes and maintaining strong technical standards in a fast-paced environment.

* Ability to recognise and deliver against business needs.

* Have a clear understanding of The Lean Startup method.


* Competitive Salary.

* Flexible working.

* Equity (to be negotiated).
