At Ocrolus, we believe companies work best when they focus on their core business and let automation do the rest. We’re powering the digital lending ecosystem and help financial services firms make high-quality decisions with trusted data and unparalleled efficiency.

Ocrolus’ Human-in-the-Loop document automation software analyzes documents with over 99% accuracy. We're replacing legacy OCR vendors that cap out at 75-80% accuracy, and augmenting the robotic work that humans are prone to doing all too often – which can be expensive, error-prone, and slow. By empowering lenders to analyze diverse sources of financial data more efficiently, Ocrolus levels the playing field for every borrower, providing expanded access to credit at a lower cost.

We’ve raised over $100 million from blue-chip investors and are working with customers like PayPal, Brex, SoFi, Blend and Plaid. Join us as we build the future of fintech, and make an impact at an award-winning, high-growth startup that Forbes recently dubbed the “Next Billion-Dollar Startup”.


We are looking for a strong, hands-on Director of Engineering to lead multiple teams managing the core Extraction Platform at Ocrolus.  This group of very strong engineers oversees the proprietary Ocrolus Human-In-The-Loop platform that is the backbone of our document processing service.  The platform must provide real-time results with low latency, under heavy load (in the millions of pages per day), and be highly available for our 24/7 operation.  This team works closely with our AI and Automation teams as well as our Operations teams, and has a strong upcoming roadmap of scaling our system to 3x our current volume, expanding our document classification and capture coverage, and improving the internal architecture to unify our underlying data models.

The ideal candidate for this role will enjoy working in a fast-paced environment, have experience working across multiple time-zones in a distributed environment, and collaborating strongly with multiple teams and stakeholders.  This person will also have experience scaling systems, making incremental architectural improvements, and leading multiple teams simultaneously while setting the technical vision for the document platform in conjunction with executive leadership and the Product team.

What you’ll do:

  • Lead multiple teams of talented engineers and set the technical vision and direction for the future state of the document platform
  • Partner closely with Ocrolus Product and Operations teams to support their specific needs while maintaining high quality and consistent performance metrics across the platform
  • Collaborate with senior leadership to develop and execute the Engineering strategy, identifying opportunities for growth
  • Champion a culture of continuous improvement and innovation within the engineering team, encouraging experimentation, creativity, and knowledge sharing
  • Recruit, coach, and develop engineers and engineering managers
  • Contribute to engineering-wide initiatives as a member of Ocrolus' engineering leadership
  • Monitor and evaluate project and system performance against strategic goals and adjust as necessary to ensure successful execution and delivery

What you'll bring:

  • You have built and managed teams that have supported distributed systems at scale
  • You are familiar with our high level languages: Java, Python and Go
  • You are passionate about engineering and operational rigor and use metrics to objectively judge the performance of your systems
  • You work very well cross-functionally and can make hard decisions and tradeoffs
  • You thrive on a high level of autonomy and responsibility
  • You encourage a healthy work environment that’s both supportive and challenging
  • You are hands-on and contribute regularly to the codebase while leading the group
