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.
