VP of Engineering

Here at Pex, we're on a mission to democratize digital rights for everyone. We are the team behind the Attribution Engine, a licensing infrastructure for the Internet enabling fair compensation and increased access to content. With its advanced identification technology, Attribution Engine ensures compliance and safety for platforms, gives rightsholders total control of their content, increases access and confidence for creators, helps law enforcement prevent toxic content, and provides brand safety for advertisers.

We believe in a free, fair, and transparent Internet where rights are respected and attribution is the norm. We put empathy at the heart of our interactions because we believe that this trait is the most important one for effective teams. We believe in transparency and we practice what we preach. We do our best each day to create an equal, inclusive, safe, challenging, and fun place to work. As the VP of Engineering in Europe, you will play a key role in setting the long-term direction of Pex’s global engineering strategy that you will help build, develop, and execute.
