Employment Type: Full-time

Team: Engineering

About the Role

We're looking for thoughtful and strategic engineering leaders to scale our product engineering team and define our technical management culture.

As a manager on the engineering team, you’ll work closely with our VP of Engineering to execute on product and engineering projects, build out and support your engineering team, and help define Kiddom Engineering as we scale in these coming years.

About You

You have the engineering skills, empathy, and integrity needed to evaluate and guide the career paths of technically-astute engineers. You are kind, supportive of others, and passionate about helping others develop as software engineers, increasing your impact through their growth. You enjoy the challenge of balancing speed of execution with quality while building a product users love and willing to dive into the code when necessary. You are as enthusiastic about recruiting and building a team as you are about solving challenging technical problems.

You will:

  • Manage a team of full-stack engineers
  • Collaborate with the team's product managers, designers, and other engineers to plan and execute product and engineering roadmaps
  • Coach and mentor engineers for individual impact, balance, growth, and leadership
  • Thoughtfully craft the team's responsibilities, goals, and processes to deliver
  • Collaborate with cross-functional leaders across the organization
  • Build a user-friendly experience for our users, balancing pace with quality
  • Prioritize large new features and small product enhancements with Design and Product counterparts
  • Work closely with recruiting to expand the team

You have:

  • 6+ years of relevant experience, with at least 1 year of management
  • Experience working cross-functionally with product management, design, and other engineering teams
  • The intelligence, empathy, integrity, and the technical chops required to quickly earn the trust of a technically astute team
  • Comfort with ambiguity; you enjoy figuring out what needs to be done—and then doing it
