About the Role
We offer the position of Lead Engineer (primus inter pares) to help lead our product development team for our next phase. The ideal candidate is eager, confident and communicative with an eye for business and quality.
You have demonstrable experience in a similar environment and are able to connect with not only team based, but also the organization at large. Based on your experience in a range of technologies, domains and organizations, you are able to bring together best practices and apply them to our domain, platform and product. Since we are a regulated medical device, you understand the importance of demonstrable quality in process, quality and documentation.
For this role, we seek you to build a dependable, high quality and predictable delivery organization that supports us in our growth ambitions. You will work closely with the management team (CTO/CPO) - as well as the broader organization (e.g. data science team) to streamline product delivery to our customers. This includes setting the way we work, focusing on quality and delivery flow, building & growing the team. You’ll be a respectable and valued counterpart to the business and product owners through the knowledge and pragmatism you bring. Given where we stand as a business, we’d expect you (still) love getting your hands on the code and platform while you work with your team. You’ll head up the development team’s daily and other regular rituals (e.g. sprint planning).
In our team, we highly value transparency, a growth mindset, and the courage to challenge assumptions with an out-of-the-box thinking approach. A founder's mentality and a strong sense of ownership over projects, team, tech stack and deliverables are essential. If you're an energetic collaborator, able to zoom into the details and back out to the big picture, we’d be happy for you to apply.
Finally, we don’t give out the term ‘lead’ lightly - we invest in relationships we build with our customers and our team members - that also holds for this role. We’d love for you to be with us in the coming years and enjoy success together.
We believe in building an organization focused around our customers and we believe success is forged by bringing together the various disciplines within Neurocast through mutual understanding. As such, we expect the majority of the work for this role to be performed in our Neurocast office.
