Job Title: Engineering Lead 
Location: San Francisco - Relocation assistance provided 
Duration: Full Time/Permanent 
Salary: 130-190k DOE 

Our client is home to a new type of search that makes it easy to find
subjective information. Starting in early 2008 the company raised seed
financing from a number of premier angel investors and carefully grew a
high-caliber engineering team. Today, the company includes founders from
more than a half-dozen successful startups, including Google, four AI
Ph.D.s, and engineers from Silicon Valley's major technology companies.  

The Engineering Lead is a careful implementer who is curious about how
things work. S/he leans on large levers to get more done, faster, and enjoys
applying new tools to the new opportunities afforded by today's web. S/he
endeavors to solve real-world problems for real people (including the rest
of the company), and aren't afraid to think big. They are looking for a
strong engineering lead with impeccable technical chops and a willingness to
manage a growing team.

General requirements:

* Graduate degree or PhD preferably in CS or closely related field, from a
leading institution 
* 5+ years of solid individual contributions to significant, interesting,
new, or important projects 
* 5+ years of leadership experience in leading both technical teams and
managing engineering organizations. Their ideal candidate has both because
on the software engineering side they will likely transition from individual
contributor to team leader to organization manager 
* Startup experience: at least one (preferably more) significant startup
company / project experiences building an organization and wearing the many
planning, mentoring, nurturing, and envisioning hats that are necessary at
the early stage 
* Proven experience related to what we're doing: search engines, information
retrieval, web servers, distributed systems, social networking, consumer web
properties, large-scale IM networks 
* Excited to come in as an individual contributor and grow into the
leadership role as the company matures 
* Very technical, down-to-earth, and not title-hungry 
* Some web experience required (scripting, widgets, browsers, web servers,
* Affinity for rapid prototyping 
* Flexibility when faced with complex challenges
