Hello! Thank you for your interest in joining SoWork. We're a fast-growing startup founded at Harvard's Innovation Labs. Our big mission is to move the world of work from the Earth 🌎 to the Cloud ☁️**.** We're doing this by building the world's first MMOW ('massively multiplayer online workplace') where all the world's best teams work from, form communities, and socialize.
People spend the majority of their lives working - and there is no reason it shouldn't be delightful, functional, and all online. This would let people live their own lives on their own terms, wherever in the world they'd like. They'd be able to spend more time with loved ones, they'd be able to travel, and we as a group could then completely eliminate the need to commute into busy, expensive city centers. Once we start to make digital work wonderful and connected, we make remote work something that companies embrace and encourage. At scale - imagine what that does for our collective carbon footprint. We could really save the world here, people!
To do this, we've been hard at work building what will be a massive, open-world workplace, with private buildings and community, social spaces alike. Think 'World of Warcraft', but for work (World of Workcraft, anyone? ...No one? Ugh fine 😑). This is a place where business moves, community is made, and social events happen.
We'd love for you to join us! ⚔️
To deliver on our Mission of moving work from the Earth to the Cloud, we're gonna need plenty of smart, talented engineers to join up. We're looking for an experienced VP of Engineering to help manage this growing engineering team. You'll need to work with Mark, our CTO, to lead the team of developers and engineers, collaborate with Product Leadership, and help to improve the Eng team policies and standards.
This is a key role for us, and one in which you'll really get to take a rocketship startup by the reins as we help to transform where work happens.
