Job content

At Neo, we empower people to get the most out of their money and time. We’re a tech company reimagining everyday banking from the ground up to create rewarding experiences and build community for all Canadians. We’re looking for passionate go-getters who want to move fast and create a lasting impact.

Neo Financial is looking for a full-time VP of Engineering to join our team in Calgary and work directly with our founders and CTO. A successful VP Engineering on our team will be a people-person with a strong leadership and management background and proven experience growing and scaling teams.

As VP Engineering you’ll work with a team of managers and technical leaders to ensure we are executing and improving at all levels. You have what it takes to see the big picture and help us steer the rocket ship. You’re a master at motivating teams and communicating change. You want to scale a team whose speed matches the ambition of our company goals.

Total Compensation: $200K+ (inclusive of stock options, based on experience)

What You’ll Be Doing
  • Work directly with the CTO and founders to understand Neo’s direction, co-develop strategy, then execute on initiatives to move the needle.
  • Directly supervise and collaborate with engineering managers who are in the thick of it with their teams every day.
  • Collaborate with our Product Management team and leaders to help map our product roadmap onto small, agile engineering teams.
  • Help achieve a strong balance between immediate business needs and doing the right thing from a tech or engineering perspective.
  • Look for trends, root causes, or long term improvements we can make (even if our managers and technical leads are focused on immediate problems or fires).
  • Engage with technical leaders on the team to ensure we’re pursuing technical excellence; coach them to build technology roadmaps and hold leaders accountable for hitting milestones.
  • Lead people/recruiting team efforts to find, recruit, interview, onboard and grow our tremendous pool of talent; ensure we can hit near-impossible growth goals by taking an active approach every day.
  • Motivate the whole team to be involved in the tech community to bolster Neo’s presence and reputation; encourage others to step up but show them the way.
  • Work with business stakeholders at other companies, often serving as a connection point for relationships, partnerships or initiatives.
  • Figure out how to get great outcomes by setting the appropriate context and expectations, rather than by trying to control, set policies, or dictate directions.
Who We Are Looking For
  • Great executive managers and leaders who will ensure we reach our vision for the best engineering team in Canada.
  • Experts who understand how engineering is done at the best companies in the world, especially B2C product companies, silicon-valley successes, etc.
  • Community-builders who are passionate about people being together and growing in-person teams here on the prairies: building trust, creating close ties, nurturing communication and fostering strong relationships.
  • Motivating leaders who spend time contextualizing and sharing the company’s strategic goals to help individuals feel connected and involved.
  • Driven, performance-focused leaders who don’t just run teams, but who constantly push them and level them up.
  • Startup innovators who understand that we can’t move faster or win by creating endless processes, approvals, checkpoints, policies, or rules.
  • Flexible leaders who can hop on a ship in motion: you’re excited to help us improve a spotify-team model, continuous delivery, kanban, and more.
  • Aligned partners who value what we value (e.g. ownership, winning, or diversity).
  • Confident managers who can hold others accountable, and who speak out against mediocre or sub-par results anywhere at Neo.
  • Highly ambitious, big-picture thinkers who can imagine what Neo can be and can execute on our plan to get there in an impossibly short time.
  • Dedicated career-minded individuals who realize that a VP role needs to be a tremendously important focus in their life (while also being a huge opportunity).
  • Applicants must be eligible to work in Canada and willing to relocate to Calgary.
What Will Help You Succeed
  • 5+ years of experience as a CTO, VP of Engineering or similar position.
  • At least 10 years of management/leadership experience at technology organizations or while building technology-focused products.
  • Experience with startup organizations or winning companies in the tech industry; B2C tech product experience is a huge asset.
  • Experience scaling and leading at scale; you’ve grown and managed teams of at least 100, where you coordinated other managers and leaders daily.
  • Strong understanding of modern development technologies and methodologies, as well as proven experience building strategies using the latest trends.
What It’s Like To Work With Us

At Neo, you’ll be working with industry-leading technology that changes the way we live and realize a better financial future. It’s a serious deal, but that doesn’t mean we don’t know a thing or two about having fun. Our entrepreneurial environment gets our adrenaline pumping and beats the regular 9-5 job. We’re in it together, always. Gain hands-on experience and be part of the future.
