We are looking for Engineering Managers to work across our engineering teams to build web applications and backend systems that perform at scale. The ideal candidate has a strong technical background and a track record of working with teams solving problems with simple solutions.

Our Engineering Managers are people who view their roles as supporting the team rather than running it. We use Google Cloud hosted infrastructure services including Google App Engine, Kubernetes, BigQuery, and Cloud SQL. Our stack consists primarily of Python and Golang on the backend and JavaScript (React) on the frontend. Our culture emphasizes making good tradeoffs, working as a team, and leaving your ego at the door.
