Vice President of Engineering
About Physna

Physna is changing the way software interacts with the physical world. Our engineering team is tackling a
major issue: Bridging the gap between the 3D physical world we live in and the 2D digital world of
software.

Physna’s technology leads the industry and is now enabling the democratization of 3D modeling by alloing
engineers of physical products, such as mechanical engineers, to have the same fundamental tools
software engineers already enjoy. We have only scratched the surface of the full potential of this powerful
advancement, and plan to scale extremely rapidly over the coming years.

Our tech stack includes C#, .Net, SQL / mySQL, Python, Java, Javascript and REACT. Physna is used by
companies and agencies of various sizes who can choose to use Physna as a cloud or on-prem solution.

Physna has won multiple awards for its innovative technology and its team has been featured in both
national and international news, including Forbes, Fortune, Fox Business, TED and industry publications around the world.

Physna’s engineers have a diverse range of talents, but all share several core traits and values:

  • Eagerness to solve new, complex problems
  • Ability to think outside the box to form creative solutions
  • Passion for accomplishing our shared mission with a can-do attitude
  • Dedication to constantly learn and improve
  • Strong sense of community and support
  • Culture of transparency and open accountability
The Opportunity

The VP of Engineering at Physna will be responsible for leading, growing and supporting Physna’s
engineering team, including overseeing code and development progress, creating and reviewing
architecture, and directly assisting with important technical or coding challenges as an actively engaged member of the team. The VP of Engineering will also be heavily involved in hiring new engineers and
continually evaluating the performance of each member of the engineering team. The position is full-time. Physna has offices in Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio and it will occasionally be necessary for the VP of Engineering to travel to the other office location, e.g. for training, meetings or events held there.

The compensation, benefits and incentives for the VP of Engineering are highly competitive.
