VP of Data Engineering / Publicly Traded Company

One of our top clients is the fourth largest digital advertising corporation in the world, consisting of over fifty digital marketing and advertising services companies. The company has a digital division that is responsible for delivering all of their digital campaigns globally for clients similar in size to Coca-Cola, for example. Within this division is a big data startup group that has seen quick success and has their main office in downtown San Francisco near Embarcadero station.

I've placed almost ten of our top engineers here, and they continually hire great people across the board. They have great tenure and good direction from the top down. Leadership is motivated to hire and is well-funded by the corporate IPG that backs them.

This is all new development of big data applications from scratch, and you'd undoubtedly gain great experience building highly scalable systems with the latest technologies - a mix of Java 8 and Scala distributed systems in an AWS environment with Spark for big data processing

Desired Skills & Experience

  • Proficiency in Java
  • Involvement in architecture and design decisions as well as modern technology choices and best engineering practices
  • Management of on-shore and off-shore teams
  • Experience in hiring top talent
  • Strong communication
  • Ability mediate conflict and resolve difficult situations if they were to arise
  • Experience in managing teams to build highly scalable, fault tolerant distributed applications
  • Experience managing multiple teams and personnel managers that manage hands-on engineers

What You Will Be Doing

Tech Breakdown:
  • Java or Scala
  • Spark
  • Kafka
  • AWS
  • Docker and Kubernetes


  • Managing an on-shore team of five engineers and two managers as well as off-shore teams that scale from 10-25 depending on workload

The Offer

  • Extremely competitive total compensation package
  • Stable and well-funded big data initiative
  • High visibility within publicly traded company
  • Work with modern technologies
  • Strong work life balance and team culture within this office
  • Fun team outings like Napa and local happy hours on a regularly basis - fun Pride happy hour last year!
Applicants must be currently authorized to work in the United States on a full-time basis now and in the future.
