Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web. 

We are looking for a Director of Engineering, reporting to the VP of Engineering, to lead our Infrastructure team. This person would lead the organization responsible for building and maintaining the systems necessary for the continued growth and efficient operation of the Webflow application and published sites.

About the role 

  • Location: San Francisco HQ or US remote
  • Full-time

As a Director, Engineering you’ll:

  • Advocate for your team emphasizing career growth and personal development
  • Scale your organization by partnering with Recruiting to attract and retain top talent 
  • Collaborate with cross-functional  peers such as Product and Design to set goals and define business strategy 
  • Prioritize execution and support your team in delivering high-quality results 
  • Drive goal-setting with your team and how them accountable for results
  • Create and iterate on processes to increase the effectiveness of your teams
  • Guide your team to make sound architecture decisions and create an environment where technical innovation thrives
  • Exemplify Webflow’s Core Behaviors in the pursuit of our audacious two-fold mission to democratize software development and enable team members to lead meaningful and impactful lives

That said, these role responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly. 

And this isn’t just a philosophical bent: we actually give you 4 hours a week (10% of the work week) to tackle passion projects outside of your role responsibilities.

About you

You’ll thrive as a Director, Engineering if:

  • You have 7+ years in a leadership role where you’ve managed managers and 4+ years as a Technical individual contributor
  • You have a deep understanding of AWS Infrastructure, CI/CD processes, local development environments and tooling and data infrastructure
  • You have experience leading teams with modern tech stacks such as Javascript, React, Node.js and AWS 
  • You are familiar with Agile fundamentals and the mental models that promote strong execution
  • You have rapidly scaled teams and know how to develop and execute a growth strategy
  • You are committed to cultivating an inclusive team culture
  • You have managed geographically distributed teams

If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of the role’s requirements.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
