Thirdeye: Head of Infrastructure and Operations

Head of Infrastructure and Operations
October 2019

Role:

Having just closed a very successful seed round we are now looking to add to our engineering team with a Head of Infrastructure and Operations – in simple terms, this person needs to be able to effectively lead both our DevOps and Infrastructure team from both a technical and organisational perspective.

The ideal candidate for the role will have had experience scaling up and subsequent management of both teams and technical infrastructure, with a ‘humble leader’ attitude – chasing that satisfying feeling of developing the skills of junior members of the team.

The Company

Founded in 2016, ThirdEye uses AI to automate the world’s 245m CCTV cameras. We then put this power in real-time into the hands of all retail workers and make them see where customers are looking at and what they interact with. This helps retailers reduce theft, optimise store operations & product promotions, and much more. Thanks to this tech, we keep our clients productive and competitive in an ever-evolving market.

Based in the heart of vibrant Central London, we’re a young, multi-cultural team from different professional backgrounds with a shared passion for tech and retail. Needless to say, we’re a bit geeky – but in the most adorable way! We love our daily lunch break walks to local street food markets just as much as a table football battle and occasional post-work activities.

The Team

You’ll part of a small but exponentially growing, diverse team of engineers and commercial experts. The environment is fast-paced, with the aim of ever-expanding new ways of delivering cutting edge solutions to retailers worldwide.

This is a varied role, comprising of team management, tutoring, release management and strategic planning of our architecture. Overall, you can expect this:

  • Day to day general management of the team and projects
  • Liaising with the CTO to plan our technical strategy and architecture
  • Overseeing response to service failures and degradations.
  • Working directly with clients to understand their needs and requirements, as well as ensure smooth collaborating of infrastructure.
  • Researching new methodologies and technologies.

Required Skills & Experience: 

  • Experience managing software releases
  • Experience building up greenfield projects
  • Previous hands-on leadership experience in a technical environment.
  • Willingness to mentor more junior employees
  • Ability to present technical concepts to both technical and (occasionally) non-technical stakeholders
