job description

VP Technology

job summary:
There are several main components to the infrastructure: - Front-end app using jQuery, CSS, and a private Shopify app theme - Shopify backend, including apps for fulfillment, subscription management, and more - In-house built back-end Ruby on Rails app that mirrors our Shopify data, and interacts with the site via APIs and webhooks - PostgreSQL database, hosted on Heroku, that is used extensively for reporting and analytical tasks

The tech skills: We're looking to hire an experienced VP of Technology who will lead and grow the engineering team in our rapidly growing e-commerce startup. In addition to their managerial responsibilities, the VP of Technology will be a core member of our engineering team, helping to handle the back end of our codebase and database.

Candidates must have experience working with Ruby on Rails (or similar MVC framework) and SQL. Bonus points for experience with: - Shopify and Shopify private apps - JS framework like Angular or React - Integrations with third-party vendor APIs and Webhooks, e.g. Twilio/Shopify/Stripe - Light dev-ops skills, like interacting with Unix servers in the cloud, etc. The softer skills:

Experience in a fast paced but collaborative environment that requires pivoting at a moments notice while wearing multiple hats. You'll need to be able to assess tech problems as they arise and manage around constraints (regulatory, limitations of third-party vendors, time!) to effectively and efficiently solve critical business issues. Experience at a startup is a huge plus, especially in e-commerce.
