Senior Director Engineering
SALARY $200,000 - $220,000

We are a pragmatic innovation consultancy that helps organizations achieve sustainable growth. We partner with clients to set visions for their future offerings at the intersection of technology, brand purpose, and human behavior. We design bespoke, actionable outputs – business models, brand identity systems, prototypes, and pilot programs– that accelerate a client's transformation and path to commercial success. Technology is a key part of our toolkit to drive new ways of serving audiences and creating value.

Being a Technology leader at our organization means you are a combination of digital business leader and technology innovator, responsible for connecting tech to the core of what the company delivers and identifying new ways to use technology to solve problems for companies. You are motivated to partner with senior clients and advise them on how to reimagine and redesign their business with technology at the center. You understand exactly what questions to ask in order to get to the heart of a client’s challenges and greatest opportunities. You know how to set a roadmap for them and make recommendations for the best path forward.

What you will do:

  • Set a vision for projects and partner with intersectional teams and senior leaders to advise on the best roadmap to execute;

  • Help design a set of tools that enable us to efficiently prototype and pilot new offerings;

  • Evaluate frameworks and translate technological possibilities into practical outcomes, interpreting for technical and non-technical audiences alike;

  • Help complex technology organizations adapt to rapidly changing ways of working and business dynamics, with a focus on end-users;

  • Aid client-side tech (IT/MIS/Core business) leaders in learning new approaches and ways of working;

  • Demonstrate a wide breadth of knowledge across enterprise tech, various tech stacks and platforms [i.e. AWS, IBM, Oracle, SAP, Microsoft, Salesforce, Adobe] and advise senior leadership on how to best leverage them to drive growth;

  • Play an integral advisory role on Proto’s own systems, partnering closely with our COO and CEO;

  • Hire and build a team of technology consultants, data scientists, and implementation specialists in emerging fields.


  • 12+ years technology experience, largely within a consultancy or agency environment;

  • 5+ years in a technical consulting role where you are managing diverse skill sets, identifying talent in new technologies, and focused on new applications of technology more than the tech itself;

  • 3+ years working in a data engineering, data science, and/or creative technologist role;

  • 3+ years in an engineering role, leading teams or contributing/writing code.

This role is 100% remote work-eligible through 2021. As of January 2022, all employees are expected to be vaccinated and work out of the office in NYC, located at Three World Trade. We would like for employees to plan to work from the office at least two days per week, and we will remain flexible on where and how people work

Nothing but a positive experience working with Averity and Samantha Hoffenberg in particular. Professional, attentive and extremely supportive every step of the way. Samantha actually took the time to really understand my background - no cut and paste here. Shortly thereafter I was matched with three opportunities that really fit my skillset and where I was at in my career. Prepping for interviews was concise and relevant and I was kept informed every step of the way. No guessing where I was at in the interview process. No waste-of-time body count interviews. It was obvious Samantha had solid, long-lasting relationships with the firms I interviewed with as the feedback was always informative. This is one recruiter I can and do actually recommend and the first person I will be calling if the need ever arises again.

I had a stellar experience working with Stephanie Grosso at Averity. She's got this great combo of positivity and efficiency, and she helped me land a job less than a month after we first spoke. I felt super supported at every step of the multi-stage interview process, and she's always been available with great advice whenever I needed it. Definitely a high-quality recruitment experience.

I just had an extremely positive experience working with the DevOps placement team Alex, Daniel, and Chad. They were all consummate professionals who kept my schedule full with relevant interviews. They also helped prep me and were constantly checking in to make sure we were doing everything we could to find the next opportunity. There is potentially a lot of stress that comes with a career transition, but the folks at Averity really know how to help you focus on next steps and moving forward one day at a time. I couldn't recommend them any higher.

I worked with Chris De Crescenzo from Averity, he reached out to me with a role that was right in line with my skills at the time. The role was a great fit for me with an awesome company, and he kept me up-to-date and informed at each turn of the interview process. In almost no time I was at the final interview step and Chris walked me through the on-boarding process and how to go from there. He was a pleasure to work with and professional, ensuring I was prepared at each step of the way so that I was primed for success. It was great working with Averity and especially him!

Chris Descrescenzo and the team at Averity are phenomenal. 5 stars are simply not enough! I've worked with quite a few recruiters in the past but Chris Descrescenzo and the Averity team are exceptional. I just landed an incredible job opportunity after a single interview. Especially in this tenuous economic climate, I truly appreciated the steps and care Chris took. He was incredibly generous with his time, and made sure the position was a good match. Then, he sent me incredible prep notes which were invaluable. He followed up with me every step of the way and was always there to talk through every possible question. I have never had a more successful interview process. Hands down. I could write a novella about his knowledge, kindness and professionalism. But simply put: He is the best. Thank you!

I had a great experience working with Averity. The team was continually attentive, and very effective at presenting me with the right opportunities and advocating for me throughout the offer stage. I'd highly recommend them!
