VP of Engineering (m/f/d)

About EqualTo

EqualTo is an early stage b2b software company based in Germany. We build transparent sales commission software. Our team consists of experienced SaaS entrepreneurs, engineers and UX designers, with big ambitions. We have done a complete rethink of how one should manage sales commissions resulting in a uniquely positioned product: the first truly transparent, self-service commission platform, combining the flexibility of spreadsheets with the scalability of SaaS. We currently all work remote, with a remote-first future and small office in Berlin.

Our mission

Incentive compensation should do one thing: motivate people. But in countless companies, it’s a source of frustration, disputes and tedious admin. We are on a mission to make sales commissions transparent, easy and most importantly: motivating.

The role

We’re looking for an experienced and talented VP of Engineering, who can help us grow our team from 5 to 50 engineers in the coming years. This will involve:

  • Prioritizing the various projects so that our implementation plan is aligned with our business strategy.
  • Monitoring progress of the team, adjusting plans as required to ensure we achieve our deadlines.
  • Ensuring that we build software that meets the requirements outlined in our specifications.
  • Suggesting and implementing improvements to our development process and tech stack.
  • Assessing the performance of team members, making hiring decisions on new team members.

Our tech stack is Python3/Django/TypeScript/React/PostgreSQL. We have a professional development environment, following usual best practices (CI/CD, high levels of test coverage, code reviews, etc). We value clear communication and integrity.

What we are looking for

  • Excellent communicator, in both written and spoken English
  • Experienced in designing, implementing and providing a means of testing high-quality software
  • 4-year degree in computer science or other technical/scientific field.
  • Familiarity with our tech stack
  • Strong organizational and leadership skills.
  • Experience in a similar VP of Engineering role at a fast-growing startup.

What we offer

  • We provide competitive salaries with compelling equity packages.

About our work culture

We are an informal company with a transparent, friendly and fast-paced work culture. It’s an inspiring place to work, because we are good at what we do and we love doing it. In a startup, it’s all about figuring stuff out – fast. We’re efficient and we respect each other’s time. When we make mistakes, we happily admit them and try to do better next time. The best ideas win and we don’t waste time on politics. Everyone, in any role, takes ownership of our product and the customer experience, and we make it a little bit better every day.

EqualTo is a Software-as-a-Service company based in Germany. We create transparent sales commission software that everyone understands. Commission plans are built to motivate people. But instead they can become a source of tedious admin and frustration. Many companies use spreadsheet voodoo to run commissions, only to find that it doesn’t scale. Do you know how much time you are spending every pay cycle on manual approvals, data collection and emailing? Is it clear to sales how their comp plan works? Is a lack of transparency causing disputes and straining relationships? Does everything depend on a single spreadsheet guru, who might one day be gone? EqualTo is the product we wish we had when we ran our previous SaaS company. The first truly transparent, self-service commission tool, combining the best of both worlds: the flexibility of spreadsheets with the scalability of SaaS. Join us to reduce your admin and bring transparency to your incentive plans, so they do what they are supposed to do: motivate people and drive performance.
