Description

Director of Engineering

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 have services and integrations written in JavaScript and CoffeeScript. 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.
