Hi - we’re Topaz Labs. We build software that uses machine learning to improve image quality for over a million paid customers, from amateur photographers to major movie studios. We've entering an explosive growth stage and have been covered by Fast Company, The Verge, Engadget, Mashable, BBC, and more.

We’re looking for someone to lead software engineering across our company. This role heads one of our most important departments and reports directly to the CEO. The primary responsibility is to develop an elite engineering organization to enable constant and reliable delivery of our desktop software products.

Our story so far:

  • In 2018 we were the first to use machine learning to improve image quality (covered by Fast Company, The Verge, Engadget, Mashable, BBC, and more). We have an obsessive customer base that is growing rapidly.
  • We have extreme growth and opportunity for impact: $3M revenue in 2018 to $25M in 2021 with no end in sight.
  • We have a huge total addressable market. How useful to how many people would a real-life version of CSI's "Enhance" be? That's what we're building, and we're better than anyone else at it.
  • We fanatically embrace ownership and autonomy, and do everything we can to remove unnecessary process, hierarchy, and micro-management.

Core responsibilities

  • Set and maintain a high standard of execution for product development by leading by example.
  • Develop a world-class software engineering culture and processes to support it.
  • Find and attract talented engineers, help remove their blockers, and develop them into a world-class team.

We’re looking for a pretty specific person for this role - someone with shipping mentality, servant leadership, and an unusually strong work ethic. Ideally you have led engineering before and have grown a team from 0-5 engineers to around 15-25, and are opinionated about the best way to do it again. We've also found that former product or engineering founders do great at our company. The most impactful skills are great verbal / written communication, good engineering best practices, and good product sense. We use C++, QML, and JS for app development and OpenGL, OpenCV, Tensorflow for the engine.

This is a great opportunity for the perfect person to build our engineering organization from the ground up as we go through explosive users and revenue growth. Your compensation will be tied directly to the performance of the company. We’re also proud to offer 100% covered platinum-level medical/dental/vision for employees, 15 days annual PTO plus holiday, and 401k matching. Because of the tight-knit nature of our company and mission, our product and leadership teams are fully colocated in our Dallas, TX office.
