Director of Technology

Location: Aromas, CA

Department: Information Technology

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Experienced

We are here to revolutionize the tile industry. By implementing an innovative online platform paired with unmatched product and customer service, we've made it easier than ever to shop for beautiful, sustainable tile sourced and handcrafted in the USA. Our tireless commitment to innovation, transparency, and sustainability has not gone unrecognized. We've had the honor of making the 2015 and 2016 Inc. 5000 list as one of the fastest growing private companies in the U.S. and are the only tile company recognized as a B Corp for how we use business as a force of good. With an innovative product, an ambitious team, and a simple mission, we're changing the way you think about tile.

We are currently looking for a Director of Technology to lead technology efforts company-wide. In this role you will work very closely with all facets of the organization including Sales, Production, Marketing, and Finance. Are you ready to use your strong enterprise software skill set to help a fast growing company drive growth?  Do you have the strategic vision to apply new technology to revolutionize an industry? Do you have the acumen to understand our key business drivers and align our investment in technology to sustain our rapid growth? Can you partner with our executives, CEO, and Board to help us continue to gain market share while remaining true to our brand?  And most importantly, do you want to make a huge impact on our company and industry through innovation in technology?    

We are massive Salesforce.com fanatics and use it to run our organization, though we are at a point where critical management of it and possibly other tools are necessary to support our growth. Specific objectives include gathering application requirements, improving existing processes, evaluating and selecting vendors, and successfully implementing core enterprise systems, including CRM, ERP, and manufacturing processes.  As enterprise systems are established, the role will transition to include oversight and management of these systems.  

You will be based out of our Aromas, CA production HQ and report to our CEO. We will provide you with competitive compensation that includes a base salary + bonus, stock options, healthcare benefits (medical HSA), 401(k) matching, life and long-term disability and some other great perks, an awesome company culture, and continued professional development through on-going training, experimenting, and opportunities to grow within the role and organization.
