employment type: full-time

Our clients’ mission is to build the world’s most powerful platform for analyzing government risk and opportunity. For organizations facing government impact, they offer the platform for professionals to plan and execute their organization’s government risk strategy. Organizations rely on their platform because of its accurate and relevant information, cutting-edge analytics, and ease of use.

About the Role

We are seeking an inspiring and supportive Director of Engineering to join our clients’ team to grow, lead, and support a team of full-stack Software Engineers and Engineering Managers working on a full range of products.

Your focus will be to see and plan for the connections across that work, coach managers and engineers, and to develop best practices and processes that prioritize excellence and collaboration. While you may occasionally be asked to or needed to contribute hands-on, this is largely a hands-off role.

This role will report to the Vice President, Engineering.

About AAJ Interactive Technologies:

AAJ Interactive Technologies, established in 1997 by cutting-edge technology executives, is a technology professional-services company supplying project-based consulting, staff augmentation and recruiting services to leading firms throughout Metropolitan Washington, DC., and other areas in the Mid Atlantic states.

We work differently from most of our competition. We have been in both a position of hiring, mentoring and managing large staffs inside a corporate culture, as well as consultants for hire. This unique perspective allows us to understand both sides of this business. We take the time to ensure our consultants/candidates placed will be successful.

We believe that because of our principals we have succeeded where others have failed. The greater DC technology space can be full of companies that are not really looking out for your interests. Ask around, we’re not one of them! We want you to succeed, and we’ll do everything we can to help you do just that!

  • Principals only. Recruiters, please don't contact this job poster.
  • do NOT contact us with unsolicited services or offers
