Clio is looking for a Director of Engineering to mentor and manage technical leaders in our organization while owning and pushing forward an area of our product. We're building a team of A-player individuals that consistently and efficiently execute on delivering long-term customer value.

Through active promotion and demonstration of Clio's values, you will build a culture of leadership and high performance. You'll coach team members that are self-driven and consistently push themselves to grow. Along the way - you will be supported by a world-class people operation team supporting new and experienced managers.

We are a software company that's transforming the practice of law, for good. We provide a world-leading, cloud-based practice management solution for legal professionals that makes their lives simpler and helps them build a better practice. As a Deloitte Technology Fast 50 winner for three years running, and with a team of over 300 global Clions, Clio is one of Canada's fastest growing technology companies.

We are proud to be one of Canada's 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures , named Employer of the Year by Techvibes and recognized as one of Canada's Top Small to Medium Employers . We are a tight-knit group of bright, driven, and genuine individuals who work hard and play to win. Join us.

You will:
  • Work closely with our Product Leadership team to set the technical direction for Clio;
  • You're not expected to code every day, but you're an experienced programmer. You enjoy helping teams solve technical problems;
  • Partner with leadership in Product Management and Product Design to envision, develop, and execute on our product road-map;
  • Contribute to, and build a deep understanding, of the code base and needs of our customers;
  • Be a role model for all Clio employees by living Clio's values;
  • Maintain and foster a collaborative environment that highlights team prioritization, removing roadblocks, and sharing unique and creative solutions;
  • Exemplify what it looks like to be a great communicator and collaborator.

You should have:
  • 5+ years of leadership in software engineering, particularly using an Agile process and with large-scale SaaS products;
  • 5+ years as a software developer;
  • A philosophy on what makes for great software engineer teams;
  • A demonstrated success in people leadership in software engineering;

  • A diverse base of knowledge that allows you to help your team solve complex technical problems;
  • A demonstrated ability to hire the best and brightest engineers in a competitive job market-and to coach, develop, and retain engineering talent;
  • A portfolio of successful projects (as well as a collection of lessons learned from failed projects).

Bonus points if you have:
  • You have experience working with global offices and communicating abroad;
  • A strong network of A players to support our recruiting and people development efforts;
  • A deep understanding of, and experience with, Ruby on Rails, modern JS frameworks, and/or native mobile engineering;
  • A degree in Computer Science or a similar field.

Why Clio?

We could talk to you about our ping pong table, beer taps, yoga classes, and nap room, but we know you're looking for more than that. Instead, here are a few of the things that set us apart and make us the employer of choice for top talent in Canada and beyond:
  • The chance to do work that matters on a product that truly changes lives . This is the place for driven people who want to make their mark.
