Director of Engineering

  • Full Time
  • Anywhere


At LaunchNotes, diversity and inclusion are important core values. Candidates with diverse and/or underrepresented backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

While many of us are based in Colorado, LaunchNotes is a remote-first team. With that said, we are only accepting applications for full-time employment from individuals residing in the Americas at this time.

We are looking for a director of engineering to lead our engineering department and help us build great products. You’ll also manage our infrastructure and ensure all internal systems operate securely and effectively. To be successful in this role, you should be confident managing your teams while, at the same time, setting goals, budgets, and timelines for various projects. We also expect you to be in charge of our integrations with external partners and oversee all software development plans from ideation to execution. Ultimately, you’ll make sure we use innovative technologies that maximize our productivity, happiness and help our company grow.

LaunchNotes is solving 2 major problems for our customers:

  • Surfacing product changes from technical to non-technical teams within a company

  • Getting product changes in front of customers at the right time, so no one is surprised by a change

The technical problems we’re excited to be addressing are:

  • Building a scalable stream processing, aggregation, and summarization pipeline

  • Serving public LaunchNotes pages to millions of end-users

  • Sending thousands of contextual and relevant notifications to highly engaged end-users

  • Building a privacy and security-focused analytics engine to help LaunchNotes customers understand how impactful their work is to their users

Our stack

  • Rails / React / GraphQL

  • Postgres / Redis

  • GCloud / Kubernetes

About us

We’re a community of Statuspage & Atlassian alumni that are passionate about building amazing products for amazing people. We believe transparency is critical to well-functioning teams. We see LaunchNotes as a massive greenfield opportunity to change the way product teams work together, as well as collaborate with their non-technical compatriots. We’re grateful and honored to be backed by an incredible group of world-class investors and advisors, and we’re looking for a technical champion to join our growing family.
