Job Role Overview

We are hiring a Software Engineering Manager that understands the strategy and implementation of the 0-1 build out, but also understands how companies prepare for scale.

You’re passionate about building new technologies that can serve people and can effectively lead and manage the teams that create them.

  • Maintain the extremely fast-paced demands of a startup while ensuring we build quickly, yet always in a way that doesn’t preclude scaling
  • Be a tenacious thought partner to the founder in ensuring the platform is built well to meet both short term goals and long term durability and growth
  • Spearhead project management and drive engineering teams in running sprints, reviewing code, etc. 
  • Communicate effectively and clearly to multiple stakeholders: engineers, operations, and executive teams
  • Influence the teams to greatness and achieve the impossible

  • 7+ years of software engineering experience 
  • 1+ years of Engineering Management experience
