Mason is transforming mobile deployments the same way AWS transformed website development, making it easy for anyone to turn an idea into a smart product and ship it to anywhere in the world.  Our mission is to create a beautifully efficient world connected by billions of devices to work on behalf of humanity.

Come build an infrastructure company from scratch!

We're looking for the right person to join our close-knit team and help take our foundational product and business to the next level. Mason's core product is mobile infrastructure as a service ("mobile IaaS") — think elastic, customizable hardware + software + services.

This role is for an Engineering Manager to own and evolve the team that delivers the critical infrastructure powering the Mason platform. You will be instrumental in helping transform Mason’s backend to be enterprise ready. This is a hands-on management role where you bring your technical, leadership, and people management skills to bear in delivering quality work from a growing, close-knit team.

Mason is looking for a complex combination of grit, smarts, ingenuity and diverse perspectives (and more!) Check out our values and see if they resonate!

    • Help develop and implement engineering best practices and rigor
    • Interact regularly with product managers, account managers, and technical sales to ensure customer requests, feature work, and bugs are appropriately prioritized
    • Define and track your team’s performance metrics and present regularly to leadership
    • Work with People Ops to implement performance reviews at company-specified cadence
    • Stay on top of the engineering road map, and help set priorities for the team in conjunction with product owners
    • Nurture a culture of "Always Be Shipping"
