You Will:
  • Build, mentor, and manage a highly diverse team of varying engineering skill sets, backgrounds, and levels of experience.
  • Focus on and prioritize the health, happiness, personal/professional progression of every member on your team.
  • Work with other engineering managers, product management, people/recruiting, and the rest of engineering to drive team growth, retention, and hiring moving forward.

  • You have meaningful experience leading distributed teams, working cross functionally across varying time zones.
  • You’ve maintained a “player-coach” skillset and feel comfortable conducting live technical programming interviews.
  • You genuinely enjoy learning new things and have a proven track record of diving below the surface when faced with uncertainty, understanding the “why” and the “how,” not just the “what.”
  • You have real world experience building complex distributed systems.
  • You enjoy building services from scratch and supporting them over a meaningful period of time.
  • You genuinely care about code quality and test infrastructure.

NICE TO HAVE

  • You have a background in the finance industry.
