- Previous engineering management experience: mentoring/coaching reports, creating a high performing software team, balancing velocity and quality, creating a strong engineering culture
- Strong product sense: have a taste for UX/UI, ability to ship things quickly and iteratively
- Interest in data analytics
- Ability to attract talent and grow the engineering team
Challenges we face
- User experience: we want to build a delightful experience and beautiful interface for our users. How can we build powerful features that help people get to insights fast, and make it fun to use?
- Scalability: our users query and analyze large datasets in PopSQL, so our frontend and backend systems need to be performant and reliable to support these workflows.
- Team agility: as an early-stage startup, our objective is to balance product quality with speed within a rapid feedback loop with customers; not an easy feat!
