Head of Engineering (f/m/d)

Published: 20.Dez.2020

Receeve is seeking a Head of Engineering (f/m/d) to join our Engineering team.

To be successful in this role, you should be confident in managing teams while, at the same time, setting goals, budgets and timelines for various projects. We also expect you to work closely with our customer success and integration team as well as external partners and oversee all software development for the whole cycle, from concept to live and operating.

Ultimately, you’ll make sure we take care of the great team we have, use innovative technologies or processes that maximize our productivity and help our company grow.

Your Mission:

We help resolve serious problems in credit, where there are impacts on all kinds of businesses and consumers. It’s serious business and European banks alone generate over 150 billion Euros per year in new problem cases. 

But it’s not just the business opportunity that is large. It’s a tech challenge. Everything we deal with is asynchronous. There can be milliseconds or weeks in between reactions or events. This comes with a set of technical challenges that go above and beyond the run of the mill app. There are multiple stakeholders, inputs, and third parties. As a team, we built a fully enterprise-ready solution in the course of a few months, one capable of scaling almost infinitely. Our architecture is unique and provides real flexibility for implementing new features. 

Our people want to win and push themselves to become the best in their field. They combine a never-ending curiosity, a desire to make things happen, work openly and closely with colleagues across the business, and evolve to become comfortable with making their own decisions and taking responsibility for services that make up the entire system. 

They put in the thought on complex issues, talk within the team about the tradeoffs of various solutions, welcome feedback, and implement quality directly into the code. This includes comfort with various abstractions and patterns, as well as creating the tests necessary to ensure that the code works properly. When there is technical debt created, they document it for later, or while building something new, refactor the services to make them better as they go.

Your Profile:

  • Enthusiasm for working in a high-profile startup culture. We ship updates quickly, on tight schedules, with large volumes being processed
  • Support, mentor, and drive performance of development teams and their projects
  • Monitor reliability and performance of all internal systems to suggest improvements
  • Ensure compliance with security regulations
  • Manage software development by working in tandem with other stakeholders
  • Prepare and manage the engineering department’s budget
  • Design strategies for future development projects based on the company’s overall objectives and resources
  • Hire engineers and coordinate their training
  • Implement innovative technologies
  • Coordinate with external stakeholders for new integrations and tools
  • Review and update policies relevant to internal systems and equipment

Why us?

  • Join one of Europe’s top startups
  • Work in the architecture everyone talks about, but doesn’t implement
  • Work in the heart of Hamburg in a very international team
  • A flat hierarchy, where you will have direct access to the founders
  • A high degree of learning and ownership in a dynamic environment

We live diversity. In our teams we bring together people with different backgrounds, perspectives and skills. We welcome all applications – regardless of gender, nationality, ethnic and social origin, religion/belief, disability, age, sexual orientation and identity.
