Job Purpose

This is a rare opportunity to hire and lead a team of talented engineers to create, define and build the interaction between Canoo and our consumers. This will range from building the web and app environment, owning tech for fleet management, the Canoo marketplace and associated optimization, as well as how we’ll handle payments, partnerships, and other consumer interactions.

In this new leadership role you will be tasked with mentoring, developing and growing a team of world class software engineers. This team will design and build experiences that are highly reliable and used by future Canoo consumers on a daily basis. It will be up to you to set our bar for engineering quality and to build the processes, automated testing, code reviews, tooling as well as rolling out best practices.

Alongside Canoo’s leadership team, you will work collaboratively with your team and the IOV engineering team to build new, innovative and scalable solutions that delight our consumers. You will build a product culture that is heavily data driven. You’ll encourage people and teams to bring ideas and challenge existing ones.

Your ability to be flexible in your work approach and deal with shifting priorities will be key to your success.

Who are you?

We are looking for an experienced Technology Leader who has built and led world class technical teams. We’re looking for people with experience in a fast paced tech company and ideally someone very comfortable with data driven decision making and consumer driven product development. Experience in the autonomous / automotive space or in a company that moves physical objects with code is also a plus.

You think strategically and can still drive execution. You care for your teams. You stand up for what’s right. You’re driven by building the electric car of the future. You’re emotionally aware and capable of leading teams.

Early on, you’ll be hands-on with coding and architecture so we will expect you to be technically savvy having a proven track record of working with large-scale distributed systems (multi-tier architectures, application security, monitoring and storage systems) as well as strong programming skills.

What's Cool About Working Here...

If you take this role, you’re contributing to a critical industry to the future of humanity. This is an opportunity to build technology that optimizes the way people move and brings the auto industry into the future.

You will learn from and work with a range of experts in their fields. You’ll expand your tech knowledge and existing background by learning from these people and working with them to drive exciting projects forward.
