Why become Noggin's Head of Engineering?

Noggin is a fast-paced, yet mature and growing SaaS company. We’re going through late stage growth with key growth milestones under our belt, and the evolution of our next generation platform. As part of our growth and evolution, we’re looking for a Head of Engineering to come on board and to lead, grow and develop our engineering practice further. This role reports directly to the CTO and will be fundamental to our next continued growth as a company.

You will be responsible for the operational and strategic management of an engineering function that performs well and is core to our delivery of a quality, high performing and game-changing SaaS solution. As the Head of Engineering, you’ll be core to the evolution of our team structure & processes and to building an even stronger devops and quality-centered culture within the team. We have a very simple, but winning formula. We look for smart, driven people who want to be the best at their game. You’re curious, you’re independent and you want to lead and inspire a team that’s focused on excelling, pushing our tech stack as far as it can go and delivering a really exceptional product.

What does it take to be a Noggin?

As the Head of Engineering, you’ve come from a strong software engineering background yourself and you’ve made a conscious move into technical leadership. You’re particularly strong in engineering web application systems architecture, especially complex and scalable SaaS solutions. You’re keen to stay ‘on the tools’ to keep your skills sharp but you deliver so much more value than just writing code. You’re a leader, a strategic thinker, a doer and a business improver.

Having a degree in Engineering, Computer Science or similar would definitely be valuable, as would a significant record of success in delivering complex, quality enterprise software solutions – ideally using a combination of the following PHP/ Angular / Typescript / NodeJS / Docker / DynamoDB / Redis. Of course, you’ll also need to be adept at communicating technical concepts to non-technical stakeholders and relationship building overall.

What does success look like in this role?

You will report directly to the CTO and work closely with senior leaders across the business. Within your first three months you’ll have become fully conversant with our product strategy, tech stack, systems architecture, and your team – plus you’ll have some valuable insights on how to continue to evolve and scale this.

6 Months in, you’ll have really hit your stride in delivering a clear strategy for your team and Noggin’s system architecture as a whole. You’ll have established a strong relationship with your team and you’re proactively leading and mentoring them. In addition to this, you have worked closely with the Program Manager to ensure that we deliver on our product road-map.

After 12 months, you’ll have a fully engaged and high performing team of engineers who are poised to continue building a game-changing, impactful SaaS solution. And you’ve introduced numerous business improvements to ensure that engineering continues to deliver exceptional SaaS solutions that delight our customers.
