VP of Engineering

As VP of Engineering at Slyce you’ll be a part of a team that is building a massive business based on image recognition and visual search. We make it possible to take a picture of virtually anything, identify what it is, and take action on it. Snap a photo of a product and buy it, scan a coupon to save it to your phone, snap a picture of a wound and diagnose it, or snap a scan an outfit to figure out how to accessorize.

You’ll be a part of a fast-moving team based in Philadelphia. You will mentor others while building high-performance applications and APIs used by our apps, customers, and us every day. You'll manage product backlogs, own planning sprints, and orchestrate work across teams at Slyce, including for our three consumer applications—SnipSnap, Pounce, and Craves.

You will need to be able to prioritize what’s important to build, understand requirements and dependencies, and not be shy about voicing opinions as we chart our course. 

As a member of the team you will work closely with senior management to plan project execution and provide status updates to ensure that the organization is properly aligned across all active initiative.

We’re not language zealots and we believe in using the right tool for the job. We’re comfortable with a polyglot codebase that today includes:

  • Languages: Ruby, Javascript, Go, Python
  • Databases: MySQL, MongoDB, Redis, Firebase, PostgreSQL
  • Frameworks: Sinatra, Rails, Meteor
  • Frontend: React, Meteor, Angular
  • Testing: Rspec, Jasmine
  • Infrastructure: Rackspace, AWS
