We are working with a product company that is developing cutting-edge AI products on search and recommendation.
A Leader of Technology is needed to run the application and development team, help drive the projects and manage a group of diverse developers.
As the business grows, so does the requirement for a leader who can utilize a growth mindset to develop and nurture a high performing team. Tapping into the current talent as well as driving further advancement and improving the production design.
The product is developed on open-source code so you will also be required to be an expert on coding in Ruby and Golang while architecting using microservices. Have a good understanding of data pipelines and wrangling so you can design scalable solutions. You’d also be tapping into database systems specifically for search engines and data products.


  • Lead a team of diverse developers from backend, frontend and data engineering and manage their growth and development. Leading through actions and over-seeing their engineering code

  • Holding at least 7 years of experience in development roles at product-based companies, preferably with SEA start-up experience
  • With 2-3 years of experience leading projects or small teams to deliver at highly competitive deadlines
  • Backend experience in Ruby on Rails and/or Golang highly preferred, otherwise proficiency in other transferable open-source coding is fine with understanding that coding here will be done on Golang
  • Strong familiarity with microservices and their design
  • Infrastructure experience in managing networks with tools such as VM, Kubernetes, AWS, Jenkins
  • Able to wrangle data on Kafka, RabbitMQ and/or airflow
