Company: Zwift
Location: Long Beach
Posted on: September 12, 2020

Job Description:

Director of Engineering, Game Subscription We are looking for a Director of Engineering for our Game Subscription team. You'll be responsible for managing the engineers and front-line managers on the Game Subscription product teams.  Reporting directly to the VP of Engineering, you’ll manage multiple engineering managers and ensure they and their teams are successful - measured by continual improvement and overall delivery of business needs. You’ll help cascade best practices for the engineering organization to your teams, as well as look for opportunities for your teams to incubate ideas, find learnings, and share with the broader organization.

You’ll be accountable for growing your team, both through hiring a diverse team, as well as coaching your team to take on more responsibility. To do so, this means you’ll cascade responsibility and help support your teams’ managers in doing the same for their teams.

Although this role is based in Long Beach, we are open to full-time remote with periodic travel to the office for the right individual.

How to stand out among the rest:

If you are excited about this role, we strongly encourage you to include a cover letter. We receive a lot of applications, but a well thought out letter introducing us to your skills and personality will stand out to us!

About Zwift:

Zwift is the fitness company born from gaming, and we’re on a mission to make more people, more active, more often. The Zwift platform delivers an at-home training game experience that connects cyclists and runners in over 195 countries and counting! Launched from the sunny sands of Long Beach, California in 2014, we’ve grown to over 300 (and counting!) Watopians - that’s what we call our employees - and we have people in New York, Tokyo, Australia, Rio de Janeiro, and London. Together, we are disrupting the fitness industry!

About Watopia:

If you’re looking for an encouraging, innovative, and passionate team, Zwift is just that. We like bikes. We like running. We also like local ice cream shops and game nights. And, our "Pets of Zwift" Slack channel brings you daily fuzzy, furry, heartwarming paws and noses straight to your screen. You'll be surrounded by awe-inspiring people in our brand new playful and colorful office environment. That being said, we don't want you to be intimidated by the former Olympians, pro cyclists, and other amazing athletes that work here; our team consists of people from all walks of life. Even if you're at the very beginning of your fitness journey, there is a place for you here! Who knows, you may surprise yourself and complete your first triathlon if you hang out with us for too long.

What you’ll do:

Accountable for building and organizing a world-class engineering team through hiring and coaching a diverse team.

Support other engineering managers and ensure they have highly functional, healthy teams.

Help your teams keep and retain our top talent.

Build realistic project plans, align across teams with respect to deliverables, proactively identify risks and develop mitigation plans.

Define and drive key success metrics and communicate progress to executive stakeholders.

Identify, spearhead, and drive successful initiative-wide improvements (i.e. improving our engineering hiring pipeline, standardizing best practices in project planning, improving our cross-functional collaboration, etc).

Work with engineers and product managers to scope and plan projects.

What we're looking for:

BS in Computer Science, MBA, or other relevant work experience.

5+ years of relevant engineering management experience, including leading multiple teams.

Experience leading other managers with a track record of successfully improving front-line managers in their craft.

Experience managing remote and distributed teams.

Proven experience leading agile teams using modern agile methodologies like Scrum and Kanban.

Excellent communication skills with both technical and non-technical audiences.

Willingness to roll up your sleeves and do whatever it takes to help your team win.

Self-motivation to deliver results and seek continuous improvement.

Bonus Points:

Experience in video gaming or health & fitness industries

Experience working with external partners

Passion for cycling, running and/or fitness

Experienced Zwifter

Fast-growing, collaborative environment. Your job will never get boring!
