Engineering Manager

| Remote
Coder is looking to add an Engineering Manager to its growing Engineering team, reporting directly to the VP of Engineering. This job is a little unusual in that there's no defined product scope yet. You will be part of determining the scope, team structure, and product sub-domain that you will be responsible for. Coder currently has one manager (the VP of Engineering) and one product manager.

You have a strong sense of responsibility but with clear boundaries. You do well and motivate your team to do well, and you also take care of yourself and them. You're the type of manager who makes sure people on your team work well when they're working and also have ample time to not work or even think about work.
You're someone who is interested in growing themselves, their team, and a company. You like to understand people and projects deeply. You make pragmatic decisions that balance the need to deliver soon with the need to build high quality, sustainable systems. You're comfortable with working at a company that has almost-but-not-quite achieved product market fit and are excited about helping get us there.

Your core responsibilities as an Engineering Manager are:

  • nurturing the growth of your team of 4-6 engineers
  • collaborating with product managers to scope, triage, and plan work
  • recruiting skilled software engineers to join Coder
  • steadily iterating on the development process to increase team effectiveness
  • thoughtfully assess and communicate performance feedback
  • strengthen and expand an inclusive, positive, and humble culture
  • motivate, inspire, and model high standards of performance
  • and a whole host of other things that come from being a leader in a startup

Minimum qualifications

  • At least two years of experience as an engineering manager
  • At least six years of total experience as either a software engineer or engineering manager
  • The ability and interest to go deep into the technology, including writing code (during onboarding and to drink our own champagne), reviewing code, and collaborating on design and architecture
  • Leadership and influence in people, process, and product
  • Clear, candid, considerate communication skills both in writing and in speech
  • Humility, a strong sense of integrity, and a growth mindset

We especially want to talk to you if you have

  • Built software infrastructure (especially cloud) or developer tools
  • Worked on enterprise and/or SaaS software
  • Experience with agile methods, especially retrospectives
  • Established or substantially improved a team's process
  • Worked on an open source project

About us
Coder is building the future of software engineering. Almost every software application has moved to the cloud to take advantage of more resources, faster updates, and portability across devices, but the tools we use to build those applications are still stuck in the boxes under your desk or on your lap. Coder aims to change all that.

With Coder, you can use the same development workspace from a desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile phone. You have consistent and predictable environments, so there’s no more “it works on my machine” because it works on every machine. You can take advantage of powerful cloud servers, so you no longer have to choose between a powerful but immobile desktop or a portable but less capable laptop. You spend less time waiting and tearing your hair out and more time writing and shipping your software.

Coder has raised major backing from high-quality investors. We have amazing interest from prospective customers. The product we’re building has the potential to be used by everyone doing software development all around the world.

We are looking for excellent builders who are excited about the startup experience, passionate about productivity and flow, and eager to take on new challenges and grow with few limits. We want to build a product and a company to last. Part of our culture is a warm, friendly, and supportive environment.

Coder is headquartered in sunny and lively Austin, Texas, but we work from anywhere in the United States and Canada. We provide superb benefits so that you can stay in flow with your focus on your work without worries.

Interview Process
We believe that the interview process should be consistent and enjoyable. We prefer to have the entire process take no more than 2 full weeks. During these 2 weeks you will be able to meet a mix of individual contributors, managers, and one of our Co-Founders. If you interview for a position that requires a take home assessment, we will compensate you for your work and time spent. 

We are an Equal Opportunity EmployerAll qualified applicants will receive consideration without discrimination because of sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, marital status, race, color, age, national origin, military status, religion, or disability or any other legally protected status.

An Insider's view of Coder

What are some social events your company does?

In these time of remote work life, we're bringing on new and creative ways to get the employees to collaborate on something fun, away from work and bringing in personal interests to share with their coworkers. We have Monthly Game events with a game that represents Universal Monthly Appreciation and Recognition themes

Marcie Zimmerman

Operations Coordinator

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Remote development has historically been viewed as a subpar alternative to local development. At Coder our goal is to make your remote development workflow indistinguishable from your local workflow, providing you all the benefits of the Cloud without having to give up the tools you love to use in your day-to-day.

Jon Ayers

Senior Software Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Coder has given me the opportunity to work across many departments because of the start up environment we are in. Every day/week is different from the previous and there is always something new and exciting to tackle!

Camilla Lever

Head of Talent

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We offer unlimited PTO and encourage vacations to give to people a fresh perspective on their routines. We feel that stress is the enemy of creativity so we want our employees to feel well taken care of. Encouraging a work-life balance and having fun with the work you is something Coder puts a lot of emphasis on and it shows in the work we do.

Ammar Bandukwala

CEO and Co Founder

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We're very collaborative here at Coder. Whether we're knocking out a blog via Google Docs and Slack, or jumping in a conference room to whiteboard the solution to a problem, collaboration is at the forefront of how we operate.
