Notes

  • VP of Engineering role faces inward. They're responsible for building the engineering team and establishing the engineering culture and operations.

  • They help the team works efficiently and then almost disappear. As a result, developers on the team collaborate well, mentor each other, and communicate effectively.

    • VP of Engineering constantly monitors the team's progress, culture, and tone of communications.
  • The best VPs of Engineering know both functional and dysfunctional teams.

    • They know the patterns and anti-patterns for effective development workflows.
  • They work with the heads of product and product managers to ensure that there's a good product discovery process. They provide that engineers reviewed product deliverables before implementation hand-offs.

  • They are responsible for managing the annual bottom-up budget for the engineering department.

  • A VP of Engineering must have technical and management skills.

  • "If the CTO knows the destination, the VP of Engineering is identifying the route to get there." Reference.

  • They report to CEO directly.
