We are open to remote candidates.

 

You’re an experienced Sr. Software Engineering Manager with some deep technical experience on backend services, datastores and APIs in your past. You want your teams to build robust and reliable backend services software, tools, and APIs to set the bar for quality across the organization. You know that each team is itself a system, and the best way to optimize it is by working excellently with people while also understanding the technology. You know how to find, hire and retain top talent to build complex and advanced SaaS software while coaching them on their performance and engagement with their team. 

 

You will lead and support 1–2 software development scrum teams of engineers delivering and supporting software that underpins many other engineering teams at the company. You will have many internal stakeholders (Engineering, Product Management, DevOps, Quality), and effectively collaborating with all of them to create feasible roadmaps will be paramount for this role. You should form opinions about what the team should do based on careful and active listening to your team members and your stakeholders. Then your teams will deliver software and hit goals for the company, consistently and with style. 

 

In turn, you will develop and grow as a manager and leader of people.

What You’ll Make Happen:  

  • Listen to what your team needs to deliver better software, then proactively do those things. 

  • Partner with Product Management to ensure your teams have clear tactical and strategic backlogs. 

  • Balance competing priorities to ensure we effectively ship new features while resolving defects and managing technical debt. 

  • Introduce, run, tweak, and optimize team project management processes, as the principal owner of team delivery. 

  • Recruit, coach, develop, and motivate high performing engineers and managers across multiple teams. 

  • Proactively seek to listen and find alignment with other engineering teams and stakeholders by understanding your teams’ technology, building strong relationships, and insisting on high-quality solutions that solve multiple strategic challenges at once. 

 

You Get Excited By:  

  • Your teams achieving real business results and incremental milestones 

  • Delighting our customers and end users 

  • Coaching and developing managers and engineers on your team along their chosen career paths 

  • Using data to objectively measure impact and optimize engineering processes 

  • Meeting deadlines and coordinating with technical team members in order to deliver quality results 

  • Attracting and motivating excellent managers and engineers who care about great teams and great software 

 

Role Requirements: 

  • 5+ years in a Software Engineering Management role on backend services exposing APIs 

  • 5+ years of hands-on experience as a Software Engineer 

  • Experience with at least two different tech stacks as either an engineer or a manager 

  • Deep knowledge of agile processes and workflows, and some experience implementing them 

  • Technical experience and fluency at the architectural level, enabling easy discussions with engineers 

  • Experience handling multiple stakeholders’ concerns live, in meetings, with aplomb 

 

Pluses (or Things You’ll Learn on the Job): 

  • Experience tuning and optimizing team processes using qualitative & quantitative feedback 

  • Experience implementing & maintaining a feedback-driven culture where it is routine to ask for feedback on performance 

  • Experience on teams shipping SaaS products for consumers or businesses
