VP of Engineering/CTO - San Francisco, CA

This is a full time, on-site, salaried VP of Engineering position
located in San Francisco, CA paying $150,000 to $175,000 depending on
experience + start-up equity package and benefits. No telecommuting
allowed. US Citizens or Green Card holders only please. Local candidates
*strongly* preferred, but applicants with perfect-match qualifications
interested in relocating considered too. Thank you.

** Candidates MUST be coming out of a similar type of start-up. The area
is called ‘media curation’ or in other words: online picture sharing.
Our client is a Ruby shop so it’s a huge plus to have a Rails
background, but at this level it’s not as important as having a similar
background.

Our client is one of the fastest growing social media websites in the
Web today with over 700M monthly page views and 20M global unique
visitors. Their recently-released iOS app went to #1 in the Social
Networking category in 19 countries. They do all of this with an
extremely small team of entrepreneurs and engineers. This is a rare
opportunity to make an immediate impact at an early-stage startup that
has already achieved product / market fit. The company is based in San
Francisco and backed by world-class investors with deep pockets.

Our client is looking for an experienced VP of Engineering to take
ownership of all of the technical aspects of the company, including
development of both their site and mobile apps and all supporting
infrastructure. The ideal candidate will have had a similar role at one
or more startups, leading them through periods of high growth, and will
be used to managing high-traffic sites. The company’s team is both local
and offshore, and the ideal candidate will have experience leading a
distributed team using agile processes. Experience recruiting engineers

Although development is not expected to be a large part of the VP
Engineering's responsibilities, the ideal candidate will have hands-on
experience with full-stack web development. The ideal candidate will
also have had responsibility for network operation / infrastructure and
should be capable of managing systems administrators / DevOps engineers.
iOS and/or Android development would be a major plus, as would Big Data
experience.
