VP Engineering Role

The role for a VP of Engineering can be difficult to define because different companies treat it differently. The broadest definition of a VP of engineering is that they're responsible for people management within the engineering organization, they're a member of the executive team, they're responsible for technical execution, and sometimes they're responsible for technical direction. The last part has the most variance - sometimes the VPE reports to a CTO, who is responsible for technical direction.
