Trash Warrior is a 500 Startups company, with other investments from notable institutions including Lightspeed Ventures and Alumni Ventures Group.

Position description:

We have been using high quality remote engineers to develop the technology so far, guided by a few incredible engineering advisors. The company is growing quickly, and we are ready to hire the first full time SF-based engineer leader.

This Full Stack Tech Lead or Head of Engineering role is expected to be a thought leader and a strong engineering executor to ramp up a growing engineering team. You will be a people and project manager that can also code: you are expected to do 40% of coding and 60% of people/project managing a distributed and remote engineering team in Latin America and Asia (but the remote team is working in Pacific Time Zone).

Trash Warrior is a high pace environment, and we are looking for someone who can adapt to a startup’s fast paced environment. It’s important that you develop a strong sense of ownership towards achieving the specified objectives. It is important that this person demonstrates leadership qualities, high ethical behavior, and strives for cross team collaboration.

Responsibilities:

  • Maintain, develop, and improve the current product, based on user feedback and company roadmap.
  • Collaborating with Product and Operation, scope out the engineering roadmap and priorities.
  • Hire and manage a mostly remote engineering team. There's also headcount freedom to hire future engineers under you, either based in San Francisco or remote.
  • Perform the typical technical program management responsibilities for the engineering team (daily standup, triage, etc).
  • Depending on your interest and previous work experience, the scope can be a tech lead or a head of engineering.

Required Skills:

  • TLDR: The ideal candidate is a San Francisco based engineering manager with at least 2 years of management experience, that has worked in a fast growing tech startup in a logistics or marketplace industry.

  • 4+ years front end and back end web development experience, such as React, Redux, Python or Node web server development, Webpack, and other modern frameworks and tooling.

  • Fluency in React is required. This is a full stack role with an emphasis of front end development.

  • Familiarity with postgres and database design.

  • At least 2 years or more experience in a senior engineering role or above.

  • Project lead or tech lead experience is required.

  • Experience managing and hiring a team member is required.

  • Excellent communication skills, and having an understanding of over-communication in leading a remote team.

  • This is a San Francisco based position. You are required to work directly from the SF downtown office. You need to have the proper work authorization - we don't sponsor work visa unfortunately.

Preferred Skills:

  • Experience being a product manager or a technical project manager is highly preferred.
  • Familiarity with Google GCP technologies and ability to deploy and maintain infrastructure on GCP.
  • People management experience is preferred.
  • Experience leading a remote or distributed team is highly preferred. Experience in managing or leading both engineers and designer is preferred.
  • Willingness to work with engineers in a slightly earlier time zone than PDT.
  • Fluency in Spanish is preferred.
  • Experience and passion in sustainability, environmental science and logistics industry is strongly preferred.

Perks + culture:
