If you are watching the IoT market closely, you would have seen more than one product which should not have Bluetooth, let alone an app (IoT hairbrush anyone?).
You would have heard that around 75% of IoT projects fail. Some because they don't solve a real consumer problem. Others lack commitment from their organisations, technical capability or budgets.

This is an opportunity to take ownership of leading the engineering and product development team of a successful IoT organisation developing connected products loved by the consumers.

Their latest connected thermostat has won the prestigious Red Dot Award for design innovation and functionality, a highly commended UK Mums Choice awards and receives great Amazon reviews.

We are now looking for an Engineering Director to lead this high performing, talented team of software and hardware developers and product designers and take it to the next level. You will do so with the support of a global engineering organisation, committed to their IoT and smart home product roadmap with significant R&D budgets.

You will lead and manage a team of around 40-45 engineers developing embedded systems, mobile app, cloud services, analytics as well as test and quality teams. Together with the sales and marketing team, you will play a key role in developing the product roadmap. You will own the programme portfolio through the complete lifecycle, achieving the time to market and quality KPIs.

About you:
- You already have experience in leading engineering teams in the consumer IoT space -perhaps on a smaller scale, or in a less established IoT business and are ready to take the step up
- You are an inspirational leader, with strong technical credibility, you can influence and negotiate with key stakeholders, build consensus and collaboration
- You are a natural networker
- You have understanding of software development, hardware, connectivity, system design
- You have experience in owning high-availability software platforms.
- You know how to navigate large and complex organisations whilst fostering and encouraging entrepreneurial thinking

Why should you join?
- You will have an opportunity to make significant impact within an established IoT business with a global brand and strong reputation in the market and be "at the table" when strategic decisions are being made
- You will lead talented, engaged, agile teams who have demonstrated the ability to deliver great products in aggressive timescales
- You will benefit from great career development opportunities - both thanks to the training available and the scale of the business
- Company culture is based on collaboration and performance and valued by the team
- You will have the opportunity to travel globally but also the ability to balance it with flexible working to ensure good work-life balance
- Great range of benefits and compensation -as you would expect from an international organisation

If you are interested in this role and would like to have a chat, please send me your CV/ LI profile or just a note to or call me on 07930 267050 and I will respond to each application.
