Are you a leader in mobile technology with the knowledge to drive a mobile-first strategy across a market leading ecommerce company?

Would you be close enough to the code to lead by example with the fast-growing team of mobile engineers across iOS, Android and React Native?

Do you have the experience to own the mobile architecture for a company which operates at huge scale?

If so, then this is a career defining role for you…

Reporting into the SVP Engineering the brief for this role is simple: Drive and shape mobile strategy for a market leading ecommerce marketplace to reduce the drop-off they get on their mobile app. They are a hugely impressive business but still get 80% of people starting on their app who either finish on the desktop… or not at all!

The company has firm beliefs of how to engineer their amazing products:

  • A clear definition of success for every piece of work.
  • They deploy multiple times a day.
  • They use design reviews to validate every significant change.
  • They deliver our products using our defined technology standards.
  • They peer review every change.
  • Their Definitions of Done include being live in production… responsibly!
  • You build it, you run it.

Most importantly, these are organic beliefs. They iterate. They learn. They grow. And their principles adapt with them.

As a Senior Director - Mobile Engineering you can expect:

  • A supportive, trusting and transparent working environment where there is significant flexibility to offer a rewarding work life balance.
  • A place to look at things differently and challenge and offer solutions.
  • Overall responsibility to clarify, elaborate and iterate on the company's mobile technology roadmap and designs.
  • The opportunity for personal development, growth/mentoring of engineers and influence across the business.
  • Collaboration across all relevant product engineering development lifecycles.

This the role of a lifetime and one which will define your career. If you believe you have the knowledge the client is looking for then please reply with your CV or call Simon Evans for more details.
