Bonobos is looking for a stellar Director of Engineering to help us build the best online shopping experience in the world. We’re the fastest-growing integrated online apparel company ever, but we’ve outgrown our current platform without an internal technology team to build what’s next. We’re itching to launch some really awesome stuff, and we need your help.
As the Director of Engineering, you’ll work closely with our CEO, Director of Customer Experience and User Experience Lead to plan, design and build Bonobos.com 2.0 and beyond. You’ll join a company that just received $18.5m of funding from Accel and Lightspeed Ventures and is committed to building a world-class engineering team from the ground up. We’ll be relying on you to help us get there.
You:
  • Are always learning
  • Are proficient in leading an agile team and are excited to nuture a culture conducive to agile development
  • Have significant experience managing projects with 3 or more engineers
  • Have worked directly with product designers to push rapid UX improvements
  • Are passionate about which technologies you use, but know when and how to be pragmatic
  • Are an evangelist of test-driven development
  • Understand why we haven’t specifically mentioned LAMP, SQL, RoR or any other acronyms
  • Have at least two live web products that we can evaluate
We:
  • Are technology agnostic as we look to building a new platform, and would like you to change that
  • Value intelligence, passion, empathy, self-awareness and experience– in that order
  • Work late and sometimes on weekends because we love what we’re doing, but try to not make this a habit
  • Will back up our talk with great pay, challenging projects, awesome benefits and even better coworkers
  • Are happy to help you relocate
  • Look forward to hearing from you
About Bonobos
Bonobos was founded
to solve a simple problem: guys need clothes but don’t like to shop. We launched
our line of better-fitting men’s clothes on the web based on the belief that we
could deliver better products and better service if we were internet-driven. We
are now the largest apparel brand in the U.S. ever launched over the internet
and are backed by Accel and Lightspeed. New York Magazine named us “Best
Men’s Pants” and Advertising Age called us “One of America’s Hottest
Brands.” We believe a vertical web revolution is coming where brands and
e-commerce live under one roof with personalized service, more relevant
shopping, and a better fit between products and consumers, and we hope to lead
it.

To apply: Send your resume, a brief introduction and links to two previous projects to director.technology@bonobos.com. No recruiters please.
