  • Exercise your technical skill set by coaching your direct reports in their career paths
  • Help build the structure that will support scaling operations of the Engineering team
  • Support hiring efforts, evangelize about the company and help us build Able’s brand in Lima

What you contribute:

  • Empathy to care for your team’s needs as well as to advocate the right solutions for the company
  • Superb communication skills that allow you to expose your ideas in a clear way
  • Passion for collaborative problem solving and the willingness to challenge, debate and form relationships with team members
  • You know what you don’t know, you have no problem admitting it, and you’re eager to do whatever it takes to address that gap
  • A desire to improve Able’s product development practices and the experience to follow-through on implementation

  • Previous experience coaching people to help them reach professional opportunities

About Able

Able builds technology products in a portfolio model. We believe that people, teams, and processes are more important than the ideas themselves, so we’ve focused on bringing great people together, and investing in their growth.

We’ve built products in a variety of industries. Everything from media to finance to toys to healthcare. Sometimes we work with management teams to help their businesses grow faster or unlock value using technology. Other times we start or buy businesses outright. Each time, we look for opportunities to leverage technology built at the portfolio-level to drive value faster
