As an Engineering Manager, you will lead a team responsible for mission critical infrastructure efforts that allow our engineers, business and product to scale across a large number of environments. You care deeply about your team, invest in their personal growth and support them in maximizing their impact to the business. You love developing, coaching and growing people across different subject areas and crafts.
You have a deep systems background and value technical excellence, and use that to guide the team towards well-engineered and durable solutions. While you aren’t expected to spend a large percentage of time coding, you are expected to be able to evaluate and raise the technical bar, and help others attain it. You will play a part in engineering, design reviews, code reviews, and will contribute to the code base directly when needed. You lead by example rather than authority.
You can effectively develop a high-trust, inclusive environment within the team. Any room that you enter should have more certainty and a firmer plan by the time that you leave it. You may walk into a situation where people have lost track of their goals and after your involvement, you get everyone aligned on a clear path forward. You remove unimportant details, distill complex situations to their essence, and get the right decision-maker to make a call – even if it’s not you.
