  • The founders: Their founding team is pretty much second to none in tech. This is a unique chance in your career to join a company that's laid the foundation in their industry. 
  • The Toronto site & growth: Start by leading a single team of top flight engineers and grow the Toronto site to multiple teams and 20+ over the next 12 months or so. Growth beyond this is limitless and driven off your ability to scale the Toronto office. With the great engineering talent in Toronto, there's lots of opportunity to do so of course.
  • The role: The position blends running the Toronto site, scaling engineering, and working closely with your engineering team to support them. While this is not a hands-on coding or architecture role, we are looking for leaders that remain technically strong and builders at the core.
