Head of Engineering - Denver/Boulder CO, or Remote

About SmartRank
SmartRank is a new way to screen job applicants that significantly reduces the time and cost per hire and maximizes inclusiveness by removing the primary source of unconscious bias: the resume.

We think it's ludicrous to expect recruiters, who are neither subject matter experts nor clairvoyants, to match high-level summaries (resumes) to equally vague job descriptions. In addition to being grossly inefficient and ineffective, the process is rife with bias and lacks tools to capture the data most useful for measuring effectiveness, leaving no hope for improvement.

Rather than struggle with resume noise and bias, SmartRank focuses on continuously improving the ability of screening questions to predict positive and negative outcomes. This enables recruiters to make data-driven decisions, quickly, without the need to act as subject matter experts or buy a crystal ball. It enables a uniquely responsible use of machine learning that puts all applicants on a level playing field and removes the systemic bias inherent in resume-based screening processes.

We are looking to hire an experienced software developer to grow and lead our engineering team as we expand our customer base. Our product is built on Ruby on Rails with Hotwire and JQuery, Postgres, and Sidekiq, running on AWS.

About the role:
As SmartRank's Head of Engineering you will work closely with our CEO and designer to architect and implement product features that address our customer’s biggest talent challenges. 

Near-term this is a player/coach role that involves writing, reviewing, and continuously deploying code, with the longer-term opportunity to grow, lead, and manage our engineering team. This will involve hiring, mentoring, training, and managing developers and implementing processes that are appropriate for each stage of growth. Longer term, you'll have an opportunity to set company strategy as CTO. 

Why SmartRank?
SmartRank is a fully remote company, based in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. As a SmartRank employee, you’ll enable meaningful change in workplace diversity, equity and inclusion by introducing bias-free screening to hiring organizations. As a key player in an early growth-stage startup the VP of engineering will receive up to 2% equity, with an opportunity to advance into a C-level role with additional equity. We are a results-driven company that offers competitive salary and benefits, flexible work hours, and unlimited PTO.
