Ueno is hiring a Technical Director for our San Francisco office.


So. You’re a tech gal. Or a tech guy. A tech person. Whatever. You’ve been around the block. You know how projects project, how developers develop, how budgets budget, how clients client. You know all the acronyms, the old ones and the new ones. Not much surprises you anymore. Let’s face it, you’re kind of a big deal. But are you arrogant about it? On the contrary! Has it made you jaded? Don’t be silly.

You’ve spent the last few years leading developers into battle at a creative agency, a startup, or a pirate ship. Maybe you’re even there now, reading these very words, wondering if they’re meant for you. (They are.)

Everybody loves you, obviously. Why? Let’s see.

Developers love you because they can look to you for leadership, guidance, mentoring, and general good cheer. You trust them and they trust you. You may not always have all the answers, but you help figure things out. And you’re not afraid to get your hands dirty when needed.

Designers love you because you always dress in black. Just kidding. They love you because you love them, frankly. You know how to mesh tech and dev, and you love experimenting with the two. You make them better at what they do, and they make you better at what you do.

Clients love you because you speak their language. You understand what they’re trying to do, why they’re trying to do it, and how to get it done.

CEOs love you because you’re not shy about telling them when they’re wrong about something.

The rest of us love you because you’re good and friendly human being who knows what you’re talking about, without being an asshole about it. And maybe because you let us win at Rocket League.

Time for bullet points … Experience. You’ve got it. Technology. You know it. Team. You lead it. Clients. They get you, you get them. Projects. When you’re around they seem to magically get done.

And for your reference, a non-exclusive list of some of the things we’ve tended to work with in the past but are by no means married to: React, Vue, React Native Mobx, Mobx-state-tree and Redux TypeScript, SCSS and PostCSS Jest, Enzyme, and other testing libraries Headless CMSs like Prismic and Contentful GitHub, Heroku, AWS and other CI tools E-Commerce platforms

So. What do you think? Sounds like you? Say hi and introduce yourself using the form here below. (Nothing bad will happen.)

We will only consider candidates with US work permits. Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance we absolutely don’t care if you’ve been arrested or have a conviction record. Ueno is a firmly committed Equal Opportunity Employer.
