Patriot Software is hiring a Head of Engineering to lead our product engineering and quality assurance teams. This is a highly-collaborative role that works closely with our other Heads of Product Management, Special Projects, Platform, and Design to drive our product and technical execution to success.
Patriot Software started in the basement of a factory decades ago. We’re located in Canton, OH and have over 170 employees across the United States.
On to the good stuff. What we do. Patriot develops accounting and payroll software for American businesses and their accountants. Because we have a passion for helping our customers succeed, our goals are lofty: make accounting and payroll fast, easy to use, and affordable. We need exceptional people to deliver exceptional products and services. That’s why we only hire the best of the best.
So, what do we value in a new team member? Our search starts by looking for a quality individual who lives by our core values:
Does this sound like you? Great! Read on to see if your skills are a match, too.
Here are some of the things you might work on day-to-day:
We’re looking for someone who’s worked at a slightly larger organization. Someone who knows the challenges that a growing company faces, so you can help us go from an engineering org of 60 to 100 over the next few years.
You should be an experienced engineer, and it’s a bonus if you’ve worked in some of the technologies we use. You won’t be programming, but you know how to ask great questions about technical patterns and approaches we can use to meet our current challenges. You help great players play better by setting technical and company context around the problems they’re facingwhile still challenging them to be the ones who come up with the solution.
You’re a fantastic writer and communicator. You should be able to talk about complex ideas simply and concisely to the entire organization. The majority of our work is written, from the tickets we work on to the updates we share. A large part of this role will involve making sure our completely distributed team has all the information and context they need to make great local decisions.
You favor execution of strategy. (We have strategy, we’re just not married to it.) You know that at the end of the day, a software company can only move as quickly as the speed of software delivery. You work across departments and teams to help ensure that we have a ridiculously high ability to ship quality quickly and on time.
You have strong project management abilities. You can take the complexities of coordinating due dates, roadmaps, and multiple products and turn them into a single, simple plan that we execute against. You should have a strong ability to teach these skills to others. You also should enjoy the challenge of simplifying the end presentation of the information while also significantly empowering each team and manager to do work as they see best.
We pride ourselves on our company culture and value our employees’ hard work. Aside from the freedom to introduce new ideas or technologies, here are some of the awesome benefits our employees enjoy:
