TeamSnap has a unique opportunity for an intrepid Vice President of Engineering to lead our development team.

- Not object to words like “performanceability.”
- Own the product development schedule and make sure we deliver to it.
- Evaluate the capabilities of our existing technical folks, and hire the people we need to get us to the next level.
- Put in place just the right amount of development processes for the organization, (Agile, Kanban, Lean, Jedi, etc).
- Lead the evolution of the organization from a heroic garage band to well-oiled symphony.
