We’re a global team – with our headquarters in St. Gallen, Switzerland; a growing team in the USA; and colleagues working remotely from all over Europe. Frontify is built on a collaborative culture of experimentation, trust, and transparency. We believe in being happy and fulfilled at work, and let our personalities shine through everything we do. Does this sound like the place for you? Then read on.

Your Team

Your new team is a group of motivated, collaborative, and innovative people. They are designers, product managers, and developers from more than seven different countries. They enjoy working together to create and evolve a well-loved product but always keep room for new ideas and approaches. Aside from work, some of them are parents, gamers, bookworms, adrenaline junkies, and so much more.

Your Mission

You’ll raise our (already pretty fantastic) developer team to be truly best-in-class by taking a hands-on approach to overseeing, leading, and coaching the Engineering Leads. You’ll also define the team’s future as you work with the Employee Success team in recruiting – from taking first calls to leading candidate reviews.

Your Story

  • You have a stellar track record of leading people (ideally engineers/developers) and scaling teams in high-growth environments.
  • You ideally have some experience working in a tech environment – it’s not necessary, though.
  • You know how to lead and drive a recruiting process to scale a developer team to over 100 people spread across different countries.
  • You hold the Engineering team together and you identify people issues before they even arise while reporting to the VP Engineering
  • You love to work autonomously and can think on your feet.
  • You’re totally comfortable working with ambiguity and can switch effortlessly between levels of abstraction.
  • Your friends would describe you as empathetic, independent, and friendly.
  • You speak English fluently.
  • Remote work is possible if: You’re located in Europe and hold a valid working permit for the country you live in.
