Recruiter Notes: Role currently is Director of Engineering but since it’s a startup it’s kind of organized chaos at times in terms of role and daily functions…. Team of about 15-20 engineers and his job day to day is to manage a few of those people but also hands-on develop alongside them…. Has been that way since the beginning, been with the company since the founding, he’s like employee number 4…. pitch in on all fronts, DevOps, contractors outsourced, hands-on engineering…Looking for a change…. Wants to get out of the startup life… hours can be crazy…. Being in a position of managerial work and also actively developing and working on new technologies, that has him kind of itching to code more… enjoys the engineering side more than the management side… knows most people want to move “up” to management vs horizontally but he’s learned what he likes is the hands-on…. Wants a “less intense” role…. Wants to stay down engineering path….B2B and B2C component to the company now, he works on everything, consumer and internal facing app. API design and development, yes they have several APIs. Some related to POS systems, checkout at a store, etc… API calls data for usage, marketing automation, mobile devices, etc. Full-stack entire career…really likes UI/UX engineering…. Lately in the last 2-3 years getting into React…. Would love to find a way to be involved in that….wants to be more focused…Lives in Macungie, currently works from home 2-3 days a week, in offices the other 2-3 days a week. Postgres and Cassandra (and lots of NoSQL in the past, Mongo, Redis, and MySQL)…AWS although he’s not “full DevOps” but can set up S3 and EC2 and common tasks – has been to Reinvent conferences in past. Looking for $125k – $140k range….. would be about a match to what he’s doing now. Open for negotiation…would really want to be closer to $140k base. Used to driving 1 hour a week to work for 12 years. 3 weeks notice to start.
