We are an established SaaS company passionate about enabling a “work from anywhere” world. We walk the talk and are leaders in asynchronous work. We offer unique benefits including paid sabbatical, freedom to work out of the 9-5, work from anywhere, and most importantly the opportunity to be a leader in transitioning the world to remote work. This is a full-time, 100% remote position that will allow you to work from anywhere.

About the Role

We are on a journey from 18 to 100 million in revenue and looking for a Director of Engineering to focus on a combination of technical excellence and delivery. This role is a newly created position and a critical next step in our growth. Time Doctor is a 150+ people SaaS company and 100% Remote, with Team Members in over 35 countries with exceptionally high staff and customer satisfaction.

We are passionate about remote work and what it can do for the world. We even have a conference and a book about Remote Work (Running Remote). Our brand is well-established, and the company is profitable and growing.

You will lead our Features, Platform and Apps teams and continually improve their engineering practices so that they become the best in our industry and ensure that we fulfill our passion of accelerating the world’s transition to remote work. We have an awesome team of 25 engineers, a modern tech stack (although not everything is perfect), the desire to grow our 200k+ user base who use our product daily, a revolutionary product backlog and a tech roadmap to help us serve 5x our current user numbers. The role is diverse and exciting, and we need an experienced engineering leader to grow with us and support our goal of 1 million paid users by 2027.

  • Lead your team through a combination of experience, empathy and metrics
  • Maintain empathy for your team by keeping aware of engineering processes and practices – for example, refining a CI/CD pipeline, conducting code reviews, or working on non-critical bugs/features
  • Evolve the technical decision capability of the engineering leads, but make decisions when necessary
  • Continually improve product quality, security and performance
  • Drive and Implement process improvements; standardize the process where needed; allow local differences where advantageous and generally drive high throughput and quality
