Technology Director, Thermostat Some of the cool stuff you'll be working on :
As Technology Director, Thermostat, you will lead engineers and collaborate with our product management team to create our flagship and largest product line.
Our Product Managers focus on what we should build, where you help us figure out how we should build and manage it. Our Technology Director’s do not manage people directly, however they play a role in leading their team to success.
Their experience across multiple technologies allows them to focus the team towards making the most effective technical decisions that yield the best quality for our customers.
We are looking for a strong, technical leader to help us continue the growth of our Thermostat product and take it to the next level.
We consider it the core of our business and need someone who can ensure that core is successful.
