Engineering Manager – USA

Engineering Manager |  Remote-First Culture | $150,000 – $220,000 per year

Do you love bringing people up as a true leader? Do you love functional programming? Would you consider joining a company whose sole mission is to improve the skills of our youth?

My client’s products are adopted by a majority of schools in the US. They have several products to improve the literacy skills of students and are looking to continue increasing their product offering. This motive is backed by significant funding round, so it’s no surprise to hear they’ve doubled the engineering team to 40+ this year alone. Growth plans aren’t stopping, which is why they need someone like you to become a leader of a seriously talented team – more than half of their engineers have presented at conferences (the calibre is high!).

What you’ll do as an Engineering Manager:

  • Grow your own team from scratch
  • Lead, mentor and develop full-stack engineers (team size of 3-6)
  • Collaborate with a cross-functional team including designers and product managers
  • Become the voice of your team’s needs, aspirations, reservations and question
  • Take ownership of the growth of each individual
  • Contribute within the management team and collaborate with other managers

What you’ll need to be an Engineering Manager:

  • 2+ years minimum of experience as an engineering manager
  • Skills across leadership, engineering (not hands-on) and project management
  • Servant leader for a cliché – be an empathetic one!
  • A fondness for functional programming – your team will be using Elm / Haskell

There’s seemingly an endless number of reasons to consider joining this organization: from the socially good cause of the mission to the way they treat their employees, the CTO having had foundations on the original product, the millions of users for the products, an environment of strong engineers to bounce ideas off and being encouraged to bring your ideas to reality.

It’d be great to talk more with you and determine if this is the environment you’ve been looking for!
