We are improving lives through better eating, and we are doing this through software that is highly personalized for our users' needs. By tapping into mobile sensor technology and combining it with a passion for design and applied psychology, we are creating delightful user experiences that help people reach their goals.

Including more than 20 nationalities, Lifesum enjoys a vibrant mix of cultures, worldviews, and working styles, and it's these different perspectives that help us know we're solving the right problems. With over 30 million users worldwide, we need to keep up with demand and add even more brilliant people to our amazing teams.

Lifesum is growing, and the engineering team is no exception, which is why we are looking for a Director of Platform to be the strategic leader for work with our platform and to guide and coach the team to perform at their absolute best. 

We are a company of 75 people, and we are working with Apple, Google, Samsung, Nike, and more, so we are looking for someone who wants to play with the best and prove it's where Lifesum belongs. On top of this, working at Lifesum, you will have the opportunity to have a significant impact on people's lives and truly make a mark. 

Responsibilities and what you will do: 

Today, there are 11 engineers working with the platform, site reliability, DevOps, infrastructure, data, and web. It's a very talented team with both high skill and potential, so a big part of your role will be coaching and helping the team grow, while also trusting them to be masters of their own domain. In this position, you will:

  • Make sure that you and your team execute on Lifesum's technical and product roadmap in an effective way
  • Set strategy for the platform team and coach the team to make it happen
  • Improve the Lifesum platform and ensure that it runs in the best possible manner
  • Set a plan for evolving the Lifesum platform into a true microservices architecture
  • Manage and coach the existing team as well as hire new talent

Are you the one we're looking for?  

To be successful in this position, we believe that you have:

  • Prior experience building and leading a team 
  • Five years of experience developing web services
  • Experience working with AWS 
  • Worked in several companies where you have developed an opinion around creating the most productive work environment, along with a willingness to voice this opinion.

If you — on top of all this — have worked with Google Cloud and dabbled with machine learning, natural language processing, or data products in general, that is a huge plus! Likewise, if you have worked before in the consumer mobile space. Of course, we would be even happier if you have an interest in either health and fitness or food, but if you would rather chill on the sofa and watch Game of Thrones, you are equally welcome at Lifesum!

What is Lifesum? 

Here at Lifesum, actions speak louder than words, and it's our passion that brings us all together as a force to be reckoned with. We support each other and trust that everyone is an expert in their field, and that you will suggest, champion, and lead when you join us. 

If you think this sounds exciting, we’d love to hear from you and start getting to know you! Send us your resume right away, and be sure to let us know why you’re interested in this particular position and why Lifesum should be your next workplace.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of sex, transgender identity or expression, ethnicity, religion or other belief, disability, sexual orientation, or age.
