Our mission at Oura is to empower every person to own their inner potential. Our award-winning products help our global community gain a deeper knowledge of their readiness, activity, and sleep quality by using their Oura Ring and its connected app. We've helped over one million people understand and improve their health by providing daily insights and practical steps to inspire healthy lifestyles.

Empowering the world starts with living our values and empowering our team. As a quickly growing company focused on helping people live healthier and happier lives, we work to promote work-life balance and ensure that our team members have what they need to do their best work — both in and out of the office. We have offices in San Francisco and San Diego for those who prefer hybrid or office settings and employee hubs, including New York City, Boston, Los Angeles, Seattle, and more.

We are looking for a Senior Director of Engineering for Commerce. This position will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of our Commerce experiences — both on and off our eComm site. You will lead several distributed engineering teams, drive the development and execution of our engineering strategy, and focus on delivering exceptional value to our members through innovative digital experiences. You'll play a critical role in fostering a culture of quality and operational excellence, and ensuring our product roadmap aligns with company objectives.

What you will do:

  • Enable the business to reach its goals by innovating, building and operating the ecommerce and membership platform for our members, and our business customers and partners.
  • Cultivate and lead a dynamic, high-performing Commerce group that embodies operational excellence, ownership, and thrives on solving complex problems through innovative approaches.
  • Act as a mentor to your managers and teams, inspiring innovation and facilitating continuous professional growth and development. Create an environment that encourages experimentation and the exploration of new technologies.
  • Design and implement a forward-thinking engineering strategy that aligns with our tech strategy and mission to grow ŌURA’s reach. Prioritize scalability, agility, and member satisfaction to ensure our engineering efforts contribute directly to business growth.
  • Maintain open lines of communication with senior leadership, offering clear and concise updates on project progress, potential risks, and identifying new opportunities for innovation and growth.
  • Partner closely with the Commerce Product Lead and other key stakeholders to develop a detailed product roadmap that balances competing interests, and prioritizes initiatives that advance our strategic objectives and enhance our market position.
  • Strategic oversight of budgeting, recruitment, and organizational development to assemble and nurture a world-class engineering team capable of meeting our ambitious goals.

This is a remote US role with a slight preference for candidates based in the East Coast.
