VP of Eng.

At Mu we’re looking to hire a VP of Engineering. Anyways, I figured I’d list some of my interview questions I plan to ask.

  1. As a manger, what kind of environment makes you the most effective? The least?
  2. Every manager seems to claim they have an “open door policy”. How do you get people to walk through the door?
  3. What do you bring to the table that can help a fast growing startup continue to execute quickly and maintain quality?
  4. What role do you intend to play with regards to our CTO and VP of Product Management?
  5. What qualities do you look for in an engineer when interviewing? What are some red flags?
  6. What do you expect from your engineering teams? What should they expect from you?
  7. What are some pet peves?
  8. Complete the sentance: “I manage by…”
  9. How do you hope to improve by working at Mu?
  10. What do you read for fun and profit?
  11. Any questions for me?
