** Not another excel sheet-type project manager role ** Technologically, SocialPilot is transforming into a modern stack as we dabble into machine learning, AI and predictive analytics as we deal with millions of data points each week. The role provides a ground floor opportunity to build and shape the tech stack as you deem fit. Talent-wise, the team is driven, smart and challenging. Managing them would require a steep learning curve which no other Ahmedabad startup enables. Culturally, the entire SocialPilot team works on an ownership model that puts everyone in charge of their results rather than activities. The opportunity also provides a bare-all view of SaaS as a business model and industry hoping to nurture leaders who would someday launch their own SaaS companies. Ultimately, this is an opportunity to work on the most innovative technologies, with a team that is motivated, while understanding a business model that ultimately prepares you to lead a large SaaS organization or launch your own. What You’ll Do: Serve as the engineering leader and technical expert. Manage all engineering activities including design, architecture, development, production, and testing. Provide directions for designing technical strategy and roadmap; execute the strategy by creating success metrics and prioritizing the team’s work.
