Director, Engineering

| Greater Boston Area

PURPOSE:

The Predictive Index is a technology company and the leader in talent optimization. We are also an award-winning best place to work (Inc., Glassdoor, Boston Business Journal, The Boston Globe).

Our mission is “Better work, better world," and we take great pride in PI’s power to supercharge workplace relationships and culture to achieve the unthinkable. We’re our own best case study! You’ll be working toward a mission that inspires you, and you’ll be surrounded by fun, smart, driven people day in and day out.

There’s a reason more than 8,000 companies—including Drift, the LA Clippers, Hugo Boss, Docusign, and Nissan—trust PI to help them hire top talent, design winning teams, and develop leaders at every level. Come discover how we empower our clients to solve their biggest challenges and make their business dreams come true.


POSITION

We’re looking for a driven and entrepreneurial software engineering director with a proven track record of managing multiple engineering teams as they execute on cross-departmental projects. The role is located at South Station in Boston, MA and oversees 3 agile teams as you collaborate with leaders across the company. Product Management will be your closest partner as you design and build the next phase of the Talent Optimization platform. We are in the early design stage of rebuilding our core platform so strong vision, architectural, and project management skills are a must. You will report directly to the VP of Engineering, but you are the CEO of your teams and have the autonomy to set the mission and drive it to completion. 

This position is based in Boston, MA located a block from South Station. 

 

YOUR DAY-TO-DAY:

  • Lead 3 agile teams as the engineering director in our Boston office
  • Work with key stakeholders to define and execute on the product technology roadmap 
  • Ensure the engineering brand at PI attracts top talent and promote a progressive technology culture
  • Coach your team members to improve their skills and progress through their career goals
  • Define engineering processes to build and lead high performing teams
  • Project manage so new work is executed in a thoughtful manner and rolled out to a large client base with minimal disruption in service
  • Lead cross-functional communication with leaders across all lines of business
  • Primary technologies include .Net backend and API layer with Angular and Node.js frontend, hosted in Azure Cloud

SHOULD YOU APPLY?

  • Strong track record of delivering complex projects in a fast paced, agile environment
  • Understanding of the challenges working in a high scale system with a rapidly growing user base
  • Change agent willing to experiment, learn, and pivot by making data driven decisions
  • Ability to build relationships across the company, especially with your Product Management counterparts
  • Knowledge of engineering practices in a 24/7 cloud environment 
  • Strong career coach and advocate for ensuring everyone on the team is happy, engaged, and challenged

Teamwork: Focus on the “we,” not the “me.”

Honesty: Follow your moral compass.

Reliability: Be someone others can count on.

Energy: Be balanced, be energized.

Action: Errors of action are better than errors of inaction. Be brave.

An Insider's view of The Predictive Index

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Employees have flexibility in where and how they work. I feel empowered to build a work-life model that reflects the needs of my life situation and still achieve maximum productivity. When my husband was ill, I was able to rearrange my schedule to care for him. PI offered me the flexibility to work at home so that I could balance family and career.

Blanka

Localization Program Manager

What does your typical day look like?

I'd say a good third of a "typical" day is spent meeting with people to make sure our team is building the right stuff and in the right way. Another sixth my day is spent interviewing or thinking about hiring and onboarding since we’re growing so fast. The last half of my day is hopefully spent programming! Building cool stuff is my favorite!

Stefan

Lead Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

Career growth is at the center of this company. My manager appreciates when I have career conversations with him and proactively schedules a development meeting on a quarterly basis. We’re also growing quickly which is naturally creating opportunities for growth. Want proof? We’ve had 40 promotions in the last two years while having 115 employees!

Alex

Team Lead, Account Executives

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It’s vibrant and full of energy with animated discussions every direction you turn. It may sound weird, but it feels like there is knowledge in the air you breathe. You learn something new every day just by interacting with the talented people you work with.
