Lead a dynamic technology team working to improve millions of lives.
Simprints builds innovative technology aimed to help some of the world’s most vulnerable and marginalised populations access essential services. We work to radically increase transparency and effectiveness in global development, making sure that every vaccine, every dollar, every public good reaches the people who need them most. We design and develop both hardware and software by applying modern tools and pioneering technology in new, challenging contexts where there is little to no internet connectivity. Simprints is currently on track to help over 1.4 million people access critical services by 2021.
We are looking for a Director of Engineering who is passionate about delivering great technology and building a high-performing engineering team. Since Simprints has multiple engineering disciplines covering mobile, cloud, firmware, and hardware, we are seeking someone comfortable working with engineers of many stripes to deliver technology at scale. The ideal candidate will bring a mix of technical and managerial skills to build and support their team of 10-15 staff, using people management, hiring, and culture as primary levers for enabling team success. If building technology for global health sounds exciting, we want to meet you!
Our headquarters is located in Cambridge, UK. We like collaboration and speak to each other several times a day – between 10am and 3pm UK time. To keep the collaborative team spirit we are looking for colleagues in GMT -2/+3 – or colleagues who are able to relocate to the UK. UK visa sponsorship support will be considered on a case by case basis. At the time being, we will only be considering applicants within these parameters.
