We are partnered with the most successful Q-Commerce tech unicorn in Europe who have the biggest network of food delivery services in the world (1 million orders every single day), and they are seeking a Director of Engineering for their Berlin HQ. Within this department there are 3 verticals: AdTech, Vendor Portal and Supply Chain, so there is plenty to learn and many complexities involved in integrating all of these systems. The key challenge is to develop high-availability, but also real-time systems that can create and process orders within 15 minutes - this is a huge challenge!

If you want a big, talented engineering department then they have just that: 500 engineering staff in Berlin. The key difference between teams is the stack they use: in the backend they have Go, Python and Java.

Directors would typically manage 5-6-7 teams of 6-8 cross-functional front/backend engineers, designers and a PO. On average, my client hire 10-15 software engineers every month, so the demand for Directors and Engineering Managers specifically is very high.

There is a huge culture of personal development at the company so if you are looking to become a VP as a next step, they can create a plan for you to reach these levels.

If you want to find out more please do not hesitate to apply and let's talk! This role will be open until the end of November.
