Director of Engineering

New York City
Engineering
Full-time

Frame.io is a media collaboration platform backed by Accel, SignalFire, Jared Leto, Kevin Spacey, and a host of other phenomenal investors. We've built a highly functional and market leading product used by companies such as Apple, Facebook, Disney, Uber, Spotify, NASA, Snapchat, BBC, BuzzFeed, Tesla, TED, Adobe, Udemy, and many more!

Tech Stack
Frame.io aims to be the thread that runs through the entire video editing, review, and presentation process. To do that we need to be on a range of platforms and integrate seamlessly with leading industry tools. Our back-end is built with Ruby, AWS, and DynamoDB and we are in the process of rewriting our front end stack, currently written in CoffeeScript, in React. We are also working on a public JavaScript SDK and are exploring writing an Android app in React Native. We have a Final Cut Pro companion app written in Objective-C (soon to be converted to Swift) and an iOS app written entirely in Swift.

Position Overview
Build New York City's preeminent engineering team. We are looking for a highly technical engineering leader who understands how to take a startup’s technology to the next level. The ideal candidate will start off splitting time between coding contributions and management, and will transition more towards management as the team grows. You will make strategic infrastructure decisions, advise on best practices, and translate business goals into clear and focused engineering priorities. You are a leader. You are comfortable with being out there and talking to people—both in front of your team and in the local tech community.

A key component of the role will be mentoring other engineers. At Frame.io we aim to hire highly independent team members who learn quickly and are capable of teaching themselves. You will be responsible for assessing engineers’ progress, critically reviewing their code, and directing them toward the resources they need to improve. As a contributor, you will delegate tasks to maximize efficiency, but you aren’t afraid to build something yourself when necessary.

    • Attract and retain strong engineering talent
    • Assess current infrastructure, articulate a plan to optimize and scale
    • Recommend strategies to reduce vendor costs (e.g. AWS)
    • Build out necessary support functions, including recruiting team, and engineering leaders.
    • Translate product roadmap into engineering goals, define requirements, and establish metrics to quantify success
    • Proactively explain to other company leaders how engineering tools can help them do their jobs more efficiently (analytics, marketing, content strategy, customer support)
