Senior Vice President of Software Engineering & Operations
We're running an Online Hiring Event on this Saturday, to hire SVPs of Software Engineering & Operations ($400K/yr).
Online Hiring Events are live forums designed to enable you to understand the role and requirements through an interactive Q&A session followed by a self-directed testing process. The testing takes between 3-5 hours to complete. It’s worth taking the time to finish all the tests because we evaluate every single complete application to find the top talent.
This event will include all testing required to apply for the role. Upon grading the tests, and if you advance, we will set up an interview with the hiring manager.
In our business, we set aggressive quarterly goals for the business which are set by our CEO and COO of the group companies. An SVP of Engineering & Operations is expected to lead the organization towards achieving these goals. Our management process is to set weekly targets with daily check-ins to ensure we are on track to achieving the quarterly results.
The SVP will report to an Executive Vice President of Engineering and Operations within our organization and will also serve as a key member of the global executive team.
We are an organization where acquisitions of software companies is one of our primary goals. The SVP will play a major role in the acquisition of some of these organizations and may be expected to lead the transformation of any acquired company within our 90-day program. Our plan for 2018 is the acquisition of 50 companies.
