Remote, permanent, full-time (40h/week) position\n\nIf you have a soft spot for bootstrapped, profitable companies with a meaningful product, and you would like to develop a small, super-capable technical team in a refreshing work environment, you might quite like this extremely rare executive position at Drops.\n\n\n\nAbout us:\n\nDrops’ goal is to turn language learning into a delightful game while ensuring effective learning. Drops is one of the top10 most innovative education companies according to FastCompany. Our app is in the Appstore for 3+ years, teaches 32 languages, was featured by both the App Store and Play Store multiple times - App of the Year in 2018 on the Play Store - and the company is still run by the founders. We are a small, super-capable remote team mainly spread across Europe (we have a small marketing crew in California) . We’re working synchronously, so time zones matter for us. We communicate via Slack, Github and Monday. We want to be the no.1 app for vocabulary learning and we are getting there quickly with our current user base of 15 million, a monthly active of >1,500,000 and an average store rating of 4.7.\n\nYou can find us here: http://drops.app.link/\n\n\n**What’d be different here:\n**\n* We’re a small team. We’re optimising for impact, not for headcount. You’ll be carefully considering any tradeoff that would lead to increased complexity.\n* We’re using a single programming language - TypeScript. We have strict linter rules. Every pull request needs to be approved before it lands in master. We use the rebase workflow.\n* We’re using React to develop UI, on both mobile and the web.\n* We’re doing things in a functional way, concentrating state, minimising side effects and making dependencies explicit. We’re sharing 98%+ of the code between Android, iOS and Web.\n* We’re writing software with a web developer’s mindset.\n* We automate where it has positive ROI.\n* Our biggest challenge is (and will remain): managing the complexity of sharing a lot of code between different apps.\n* We’re not building a hierarchy. We’re encouraging everyone to be autonomous. You’ll _not_ be an arbitrator between business and engineering. You’ll be helping both project owners and the tech team to work more closely together.\n* Your average day will be about helping with team members make technical decision, adjusting processes as needed, doing research and automation, actually developing software and also, recruiting.\n\n# Responsibilities\n * You’ll be responsible for the tech team’s effectiveness, well-being and development, and that its working aligns well to the business’ and our users’ needs.\n* You’ll be making sure that the technical aspects of the projects are getting done on schedule, that we’re making the right trade-offs.\n* You’ll be leading, mentoring, managing the people who are part of the tech team.\n* You’ll be recruiting, onboarding top talent, sometimes. We’re a small team, and we’re not expecting to grow the headcount a lot (but we do expect to grow the impact each of us have!).\n* You’ll be working closely together with the leadership team, to lay down the tracks for future product and infrastructural expansion.\n* You’ll be in charge of flourishing our engineering culture - organise information sharing, hackathons, processes, developing new, helpful routines.\n* We value clear and honest communication and transparency, it’s the linchpin of our culture and current success and independency.\n* You will be involved in both high and low level decision making and will be available during European working hours (9AM - 6PM GMT).\n* We are looking for a missionary rather than a mercenary. \n\n# Requirements\n* Can see a problem from the product, business’ and the team’s perspective.\n* You have excellent technical and people skills. (yes, we know, it’s rare!)\n* You are more of a frontend than a backend engineer. (we’re frontend heavy)\n* You held senior software engineering management position such as CTO, Head of Development, or VP of Engineering positions in the past and enjoyed it.\n* You have introspective tendencies, and you’re looking for a position where you can grow fast.\n* You can represent the technology, infrastructure, and the engineering team at the executive level. \n\nBe sure to mention the words **BIND RABBIT ELECTRIC** when applying to show you read the job post completely. This is a beta feature to avoid spam applicants. Companies can search these words to find applicants that read this and see they're human.\n\n \n\n#Salary and compensation\n No salary data published by company so we estimated salary based on previous jobs related to Executive, Engineering and Engineer, Executive jobs that are similar:\n\n $70,000 — $107,500/year\n \n\n#Location\nEuropean Timezones

👉 Please reference you found the job on Remote OK, this helps us get more companies to post here, thanks!

When applying for jobs, you should NEVER have to pay to apply. You should also NEVER have to pay to buy equipment which they then pay you back for later. Also never pay for trainings you have to do. Those are scams! NEVER PAY FOR ANYTHING! Posts that link to pages with "how to work online" are also scams. Don't use them or pay for them. Also always verify you're actually talking to the company in the job post and not an imposter. A good idea is to check the domain name for the site/email and see if it's the actual company's main domain name. Scams in remote work are rampant, be careful! Read more to avoid scams. When clicking on the button to apply above, you will leave Remote OK and go to the job application page for that company outside this site. Remote OK accepts no liability or responsibility as a consequence of any reliance upon information on there (external sites) or here.
