REF: AS00039455

My Client, a pre-IPO stage Europe unicorn, is looking for a regional engineering leader/director to cover the whole engineering team in Asia (Singapore, China and Japan). This role will be based in Singapore. In this role, you will be leading close to 100 engineers and reporting to CTO directly. Tech-wise, they are doing Python, MySQL, NoSQL, AWS, Hadoop ecosystem, etc. Culture-wise, they got a very techie culture across the whole organization. Even CTO is doing a bit hands-on coding when necessary. They also have a very flexible culture and flat structure.

The pure management type candidates are not good fits for this role. Though you will not be expected to do hands-on coding in the role, the right candidate should be technically strong and actively involved in technical responsibilities.

The ideal candidate should have below skills and experiences:

  • Expert with large scale distributed system design and computer science fundamentals.
  • Polyglot and experienced with several languages. Python is not a must.
  • Experienced in managing a decent size regional engineering team.
  • Candidate from product based tech companies are preferred.
