Job Description
Director, Platform Engineering

New York, remote US

Ilir Sela started Slice with the belief that local pizzerias deserve all of the advantages of major franchises without compromising their independence. Starting with his family's pizzerias, we now empower over tens of thousands of restaurants with the technology, services, and collective power that owners need to better serve their digitally minded customers and build lasting businesses. We're growing and adding more talent to help fulfill this valuable mission. That's where you come in.

The Challenge to Solve

Empower local business owners with an incredible app-based ordering experience that both delights their customers and keeps them coming back for more.

The Role

As the leader of our Platform Engineering team, you will play a crucial role in streamlining our software development processes and ensuring efficient and reliable delivery of applications or services. You will work closely with cross-functional teams, automate key processes, establish CI/CD pipelines, leverage cloud technologies, and promote a culture of continuous learning and improvement. Strong problem-solving, communication, and technical skills are essential for this role.

The Team

Your team would include managing a collaborative group of Platform Engineers working remotely and in-person at our offices in Skopje, New York City, and Belfast. You would also partner cross-functionally with such teams as Product Engineering, Data Engineering, Product Analytics and Marketing on product launches and ad hoc efforts. This role would report to the VP of Security and Platform Engineering.

The Winning Recipe

We're looking for a leader with a deep understanding of Platform Engineering and DevOps principles, along with exceptional leadership and collaboration skills to drive cross-team initiatives:

  • Demonstrated success in leading and managing engineering teams, fostering a culture of collaboration, innovation, and continuous improvement.
  • Deep technical understanding of cloud infrastructure platforms such as AWS
  • Expertise in containerization and container orchestration tools such as Docker and Kubernetes.
  • Strong familiarity with infrastructure as code (IAC) practices, leveraging tools like Terraform or CloudFormation.
  • Excellent communication, interpersonal, and influencing skills, with the ability to effectively communicate complex technical concepts to both technical and non-technical stakeholders.
  • Proven track record of successfully driving cross-team initiatives and collaborating with diverse teams to deliver business outcomes.

The Extras

  • Flexible PTO
  • Market leading medical, vision and dental insurance
  • 401K matching up to 4%
  • Monthly wellness reimbursement/stipend
  • Weekly pizza stipend (Yes, that's a thing!)

Salary Range: $176k - $215k OTE + benefits.

The above represents the expected salary range for this job requisition. Ultimately, in determining your pay, we'll consider your location, experience, and other job-related factors.
