We're looking for a Director of Mobile Engineering with successful mobile leadership experience to help grow and scale Fleetio Go (our mobile platform) and the mobile team. You will work with engineering leadership and the broader mobile team to shape our mobile development practices and the technical vision for our mobile platform. You will also work with counterparts on the product team to build and deliver a delightful mobile experience for our users.

Our ideal candidate is someone who has prior experience leading, growing, and managing distributed mobile engineering teams. Mobile apps are a huge part of our product strategy (our customers manage mobile assets, after all).

This is a remote role and is open to candidates based in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
