We are seeking a strategic VP of Technology to guide our Product & Tech team, leading product innovation while harmonising it with our CEO & senior leaders through close collaboration, translating business challenges into futuristic, scalable technology solutions
As our VP of Technology, you will be a leader with a substantial background in team management and product management methodologies. You should have a knack for aligning product and engineering visions with overarching business objectives, grounded in a comprehensive understanding of agile and lean methodologies, and current engineering practices, tools, and trends. Your analytical, data-driven decision-making style, paired with adept resource and budget management skills, will be central to this role.
Your responsibilities include nurturing and developing our engineering and product talent, working in cross-functional teams. As a vital liaison between the technical and business divisions, you will foster close partnerships with the commercial and exec teams, endorsing growth through a tech-enabled approach.
The role requires experience in at least one startup/scaleup environment, or proven expertise in elevating a 1.0 tech situation to a 2.0 status, managing complex transitional phases hands-on. Ready to build rather than consult, we envision you at the helm, steering Threads to new pinnacles through a pivotal, integrative role where technology harmoniously serves business and user needs.
Progression at Threads means so much to us and we know it means a lot to you too! We are working on creating a new career pathway for this role but in the meantime, check out our progression paths across the business here to get familiar with how we like to develop our employees!
