About the role
As VP of Engineering, you will help Whisbi’s software achieve the best quality and reliability.
You will be leading our Engineering team to create and escalate a first-of-its-kind Conversational Sales Software. You will be managing different teams of very diverse and senior software engineers. You will own the engineering roadmap and work closely with our CEO, CTO, VP of Product and executive leadership team to execute on a product strategy that will make or break our business.

About the team

At Whisbi we care about a platform that manages millions of requests by day from some of the top companies of the world. We do this with a huge variety of technologies, solutions, and infrastructure to reach the performance expected.
Our Engineering Team is very experienced in both startup and enterprise engineering, leading a solution that works. They are responsible for their own activities and make sure experiences are reliable. They are all amazing learners and flexible problem-solvers.
Most team members have serious experience in startup engineering. It is a different game, and we are shipping at least once a week to full enterprise systems. Many have 10+ years experience, and have owned their own companies. These are the people who have enough battle experience to architect solutions that can be built fast, destroyed safely, and scaled easily when the time comes.

How do we work?

At Whisbi we care about shipping real value to customers fast. We do this with an integrated product/engineering team that is lean, powerful and fast.
We always work with well validated strategic customer problems and solutions that have already been experience tested with rapid prototypes in the field - before we consider building.
We combine strategic viewpoints in product and engineering to reduce scope, so our tactical executions are always small and rapid. Quick to deliver, quick to learn, so as a team we course correct early.
We work in an agile environment, taking care of the current ecosystem of solutions, with a clear milestone of quality, performance, and reliability.
