VP of Product & Engineering

Job description


Bisnow is the largest producer of news and events within the commercial real estate industry across North America, Canada, the UK and Ireland. Like any other industry, executives within CRE need to be informed and connected to do their jobs well. And in CRE, doing your job well means doing smarter deals and more of them.

Our mission is to inform, connect and advance the commercial real estate community to do more business. We aspire to be the most data-driven and humanizing digital media, live events and intelligence platform in the galaxy — and through this effort, drive the industry to do smarter business. From events and news to branded content and video, our singular voice, attitude and perspective reaches 18 million all-digital readers and more than 100,000 industry insiders who attend our 300+ Bisnow events each year. Operating in more than 50 cities across North America and Europe, we tend to think globally, but strive to connect people hyper-locally.

We are seeking a VP of Product & Engineering to join the executive team at Bisnow and lead the product and engineering team. As the VP of Product & Engineering you will focus on product development and guide the engineering team to deliver comprehensive solutions that help fuel Bisnow’s growth. Our ideal candidate is not just a technology leader, but a business partner who can effectively communicate with all stakeholders and work closely with management to translate business needs into product design/specifications that the engineering team can execute on. 



  • You have a deep passion for building high quality products that deliver on all fronts: design, functionality and purpose.

  • You are a leader, a mentor and eager to share your knowledge with your team to level up those around you.

  • You have an eagerness to “roll-up your sleeves” and dig into issues in order to seek solutions on your own without relying on others to execute on your behalf.

  • You must be a clear and efficient communicator who’s more than willing to take the time to relay information and provide explanation to both internal and external business stakeholders.

  • You are our internal leader on how we use data to drive business decisions and outcomes. You obsess over new types of data we could be collecting and seeking new ways to leverage that data.



  • Own the product roadmap and supporting engineering roadmap to ensure execution of the product vision. 

  • Manage the entire product lifecycle from idea, to design, to specification, to engineering, to production deployment.

  • Provide high level guidance and architecture to engineering for building new systems and altering existing systems.

  • Own the technology budget and ensure that resources are being used in the most economical way possible while also providing the most value for the company.

  • Communicate the resources necessary to execute on the roadmap. 

  • Manage our AWS infrastructure to ensure functionality and efficiency.

  • Constantly evaluate our data, maintain its integrity and build reports, visuals and dashboards to provide business intelligence to everyone.

  • Discover and implement new technologies that yield competitive advantage and help future proof the company beyond what needs to be delivered and solved for today.

  • Track, analyze and monitor technology performance metrics.

  • Build quality assurance and data protection processes.


  • Proven experience in a similar product/technology leadership role.

  • Strong understanding of budgets and business-planning.

  • Ability to conduct technological analyses and research.

  • Excellent communication and organizational skills.

  • Strategic thinker who can creatively solve problems.
