Head of Application Platform Quantcast
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Your mission in this role is to improve Quantcast?s capabilities as an organization in building compelling applications, particularly those for visualizing and interacting with complex data. You?ll build relationships with all the teams in engineering, understand what sorts of things they need to display and how they go about it. You?ll also work with product management and other parts of the business to understand how engineering?s ability to create UIs is moving the business forward and where it might be improved. Drawing on your own experience working with various application technologies and development processes, you?ll guide all these stakeholders toward a multiyear strategic vision for both, and you?ll help them execute against it day by day and quarter by quarter. You?ll see the impact of your work in the applications you?ve helped other teams write, and you?ll feel the increased development velocity you?ve helped the organization achieve.
There will be some software development involved too. You will lead a small team responsible for the core application platform components, and you?ll write your share of the code along with them. Your technical capabilities will earn their respect, and you?ll teach them a thing or two about building a stable platform and providing service to internal customers without blocking them. But this role is principally about strategy and shaping the whole team?s capabilities. Your customers are scores of capable engineers who can build their own solutions, and you?ll never out-code them; success means providing them a platform they can both use and help extend in the process.
