We can promise you’ll never be bored!

  • Comfortable mixing hands-on technical work with technical leadership of a high-caliber, agile team
  • Drive pragmatic software design and implementation plans based on company vision, firm timelines, and a rapidly evolving hardware base
  • Extend and maintain software engineering standards for the engineering team
  • Evaluate code performance and quality, coach and mentor team members
  • As part of the Within engineering leadership team, identify opportunities and risks, share best practices and implement effective development processes
  • Formulate staffing plans and help recruit more world-class talent to the team

What you’ll need to be successful:

  • CS, Software Engineering or an equivalent degree is preferred
  • Six or more years working in an engineering domain relevant to the listed responsibilities, including experience leading engineering teams
  • Substantial professional Unity development experience
  • A proven track record of having launched product that has operated successfully at scale across one or more mobile ecosystems
  • Solid understanding of mobile hardware and how to optimize for performance including use of Instruments + GPU captures on native clients.
