Able is a product design and development studio. We work primarily with high-growth companies and nonprofits to elevate and accelerate their potential. Our team is made up of 100+ Designers, Product Strategists, Program Managers, and Engineers who work seamlessly with our partners (clients) to build world-class products.
We are seeking a Principal Product Engineering Consultant to be a lead product strategy and technical consultant for our partners (clients) and be the liaison between the business development and engineering teams. The Principal Product Engineering Consultant will play a key role in bringing value creation to Able’s partners by providing digital product insight and detecting opportunities for success.
Over the past several years, Able has grown immeasurably. Our revenue and team have grown +30% y/y. We’ve also grown in the type of company that we are:
Chapter 1: We were founded in 2013 as a product and engineering hub for a portfolio of early stage start-ups. We grew up as an in-house/external hybrid shared services model. That allowed us to hone our skills and establish our operational and cultural foundation.
Chapter 2. In 2019 we began to expand our vision. We began to grow outside of our inset partner base. We had good initial success meeting new partners, kicking off new relationships, and delivering high value work.
Chapter 3. We are now in the early stages of a new chapter, an expansion of the ambition of Chapter 2. Our strategy for growth centers around two audiences:
- Venture Capital. VC firms are looking for trusted product and technology solutions to distribute seamlessly across their portfolios at scale. The founders at their portfolio companies are looking for capabilities that can accelerate their businesses' go-to-market time, while minimizing cost and risk.
- Private Equity. PE firms are looking for trusted solutions that can catalyze growth for their portfolio companies at scale. The leaders of those companies are looking to leverage technology to unlock growth from their organizations.
We are looking for a leader who can design and implement the systems that drive our program delivery, overseeing unique value creation for our partners to drive sustainable growth for Able.
Reporting into the Director of Engineering, this role will be responsible for:
- Lead Clients and Drive Business Growth
We are seeking a leader adept at fostering innovative ideas for our partners (clients), enhancing their business growth and innovation. You will be instrumental in engaging in strategic technical discussions with executive-level stakeholders, leveraging our strengths to expand our influence and impact.
- Define and Implement Technical Vision
Your role involves standing at the crossroads of business and technology, shaping how we operate. You will be responsible for defining our technical focus, codifying our work processes, setting success metrics, and steering our growth agenda. Your leadership will be key in continuously refining and improving our approach.
- Grow and Nurture High-Performing Teams

What you bring
The ideal candidate is someone who has a track record of:
- Technical expertise
You have deep experience hands-on as an engineer as well as directing technical conversations with high-level executive stakeholders. You are equally comfortable reviewing code or having technical discussions with a CTO as you are presenting to non-technical executive stakeholders.

You have worked in a digital agency or consultancy setting overseeing technical products. Ideally, you have worked with enterprise clients. You understand the difference between client wants and client needs and are comfortable managing client expectations.
You are relentless in your pursuit of understanding and learning. You love learning about new things and imagining ways to apply your newfound knowledge to your work and life.
You are inspired to do things that have never been done. You are motivated by the opportunities presented by unfulfilled potential.
You feed off of the energies of others, and invite others to feed off of your energies. You are accountable for your work and thrive when your work is intertwined with the work of others.
You enjoy working in ambiguity and embrace the opportunities to solve complex problems. You are eager to experiment to improve how we work.
- A drive for excellence
You are motivated to do the best work possible. You avoid the chance to cut corners. As a point of pride—and of practical application—you have high expectations of yourself and the people around you.
