In 2016, we founded Provi as an innovative ordering solution, aimed to disrupt the 240-billion dollar alcohol industry with a product that would move beyond the constant chaos: the texts, paper stacks, missed phone calls and lost communication that has dominated the purchasing workflow between buyers and distributors for decades.

Today, Provi is better than ever. We’ve created a best-in-class ordering solution that better connects beverage alcohol professionals across 35 states and growing, with more than 750,000 product listings that make up the most expansive and trusted database of U.S. distributor portfolios.

As Provi continues to grow as a leader in the B2B digital marketplace for the wholesale alcohol industry, we are looking for an Engineering Manager to guide and expand our capabilities for serving data that powers customer experiences and internal tools. This role involves leading a team of engineers in enhancing our platform's search features, providing the API for experiences, employing technologies and products such as OpenSearch, AWS AppSync, GraphQL, and Amazon ElastiCache to ensure scalability, performance, and exceptional user experiences.

What you'll be doing

  • Team Leadership: Lead and manage a team of software engineers, fostering an environment of innovation and continuous improvement. Mentor team members in their technical and professional development.
  • Strategic Planning: Develop and implement a strategic vision for the search and vending functions within Provi’s platform, aligning with company goals and customer needs.
  • Project Management: Oversee the planning, execution, and delivery of related projects, ensuring they meet quality, budget, and timeline constraints.
  • Cross-Functional Collaboration: Work closely with other engineering teams, product managers, and stakeholders to integrate the search platform with other system components and ensure a cohesive product strategy.
  • Technical Expertise: Maintain hands-on involvement in the design and development of advanced search algorithms, APIs, data integration, and system optimization.
  • Performance Monitoring: Regularly assess and report on the performance of the systems and services, identifying areas for improvement and implementing solutions to enhance search relevance and efficiency.

What we are looking for

  • 8+ years of experience in software engineering with a focus on search systems, including at least 3 years in a managerial role.
  • Strong technical background in developing scalable search algorithms, with expertise in modern programming languages (e.g., Java, Ruby on Rails).
  • Demonstrated experience in Service Oriented Architecture, building REST APIs, and working with GraphQL.
  • In-depth knowledge of scalable web service architecture components, particularly as they relate to search functionality.
  • Proficiency in data modeling and experience with SQL and NoSQL databases (e.g., Postgres, DynamoDB) in a search context.
  • Proven track record in leading and delivering complex software projects using Agile methodologies.
  • Excellent communication and team collaboration skills, with the ability to lead cross-functional initiatives.

What you can do at Provi:

Make an impact: Work directly with the management team to help grow the business.

Find your groove and grow: Provi keeps growing and you should too. Expand your skill set, diversify your experience and develop along with us.

Enjoy competitive benefits: Health, Dental, Vision, 401K with match, Commuter Perks, Long/Short Term Disability, Employee Assistance Program, Unlimited PTO and ½ day Fridays in the Summer.

Be a part of something big: Join a dynamic and innovative team that is working to change a major industry.

Employee pay will vary based on factors such as qualifications, experience, skill level, competencies, and work location. Base pay is just one component of the Company's total compensation package for employees. Other rewards may include annual bonuses, short- and long-term incentives, and program-specific awards.
