Albany Partners have been retained by an industry-leading organisation that are seeking a VP of Engineering (the most senior person in technology) to join their leadership team.

The client has an incredibly fast-paced business environment, where entrepreneurship, thinking on one's feet and the ability to make business-critical decisions under pressure are must-have capabilities. The successful VP of Engineering will be reporting directly to the CEO, who is also the founder, and the role will suit an individual with previous experience at a similar level. The client is due to experience hyper growth and have an enviable portfolio of established, premium brands as clients.


Our client is searching for a highly credible VP of Engineering, to manage a high-performing technology team. The VP of Engineering will ideally come from an engineering background and have a genuine passion for pioneering technology which will drive them to be the visionary in the organisation and closely partner with the VP of Product to build customer-centric future SaaS products.


Extensive experience with a SaaS organization in a business-to-business environment is essential. The successful candidate will have strong experience operating in a product-minded environment. Previous experience of operating in a start-up, VC or PE-backed organisation would be desirable.

The VP of Engineering will define the technology strategy in the business and ensure they are always at the cutting edge of technology and add customer value. The ideal candidate will have strong strategic thinking skills, excellent stakeholder management, and above all, the ability to win the hearts and minds of the technical team and of their peers in the management team. A demonstrable track record of having owned technology/engineering and have used JavaScript and PHP will be desirable but not essential.


Previous experience of operating at Director level in a SaaS, B2B environment is essential. Also, a high degree of credibility and commercial acumen needs to be demonstrated while having reported to a CEO in a medium-size organisation, where they scaled teams from 10 to minimum 30+.
