I'm thinking of interviewing at different companies. The role will be for a director/vp of software engineering. For some companies, the revenue model is not clear to me; is it a fair question to ask during the interview process? Essentially - 'how do you guys make money'?

It’s a fair question!

Revenue models depend on the product…is it SaaS, B2B, B2C…you can pretty much gauge where money is made (consumer, transaction, licensing fees, etc).

I am a VP of Software Engineering and one of the things that got me in senior leadership is not by asking how a company makes money but what I will do to make them more money. In senior leadership, it’s all about the bottom line and how you’ll contribute to making the company more money, and expanding the business.

Thanks for the reply. I would only ask to assess the stability of the company, and long term viability, as leaving a stable environment for another may expose me to excessive risk.

it is as if there revenue stream is not clear you might take a pause and think again before joining the company

What do you mean by different companies?
