Sr Director, Engineering (Growth Stage AI Leader)

Toronto, ON M5V1P9

Employment Type: Permanent Job Category: Development Director Job Number: 1734

Job Description

We are recruiting a Sr Director Engineering for a Silicon Valley-based growth stage enterprise SaaS company that has 100+ employees and is disrupting one of the biggest enterprise tech spaces with an AI-driven platform that brings new intelligence to enterprise customers. This is an opportunity to lead the growth of the existingToronto site & also will lead teams in their global offices.

  • Award winning AI leader that's raised 100M+ VC from leading investors and is poised to disrupt one of the largest enterprise software spaces. 
  • 100+ employees. Engineering Team is ~ 30 people across Toronto, San Francisco (HQ) & Tel Aviv. This role will lead feature teams, test, devops and build a new data engineering team in Toronto. 
  • While the CND team is based in Toronto, there is flexibility for this to be a remote position, ideally in the Eastern timezone given the need to lead teams in Tel Aviv. Note that there is a current Toronto office that will be available to local employees upon their return to the office at some point in 2021.
  • We're looking for an engineering leader that can scale the engineering organization, be an effective technical leader (note this is not a coding role, but does require strong technical depth) and that can build an incredible engineering culture in a distributed environment. 
  • At minimum, we're considering leaders that have led 20+ person engineering teams and have led other managers. As well it's critical that you have scaled a team from A to B, not only managed a relatively static team.
  • From a technical standpoint, AI/ML experience is not required. We are looking for leaders that have worked with modern stacks & distributed systems and continue to contribute to architecture, technology selection and can coach & guide engineers (incl. code reviews). 

Apply today or contact Jamie Collins (jamie AT or Bruce Dorland (bruce AT for further details.
