Medium’s mission is to help people deepen their understanding of the world and discover ideas that matter. We are building a place where ideas are judged on the value they provide to readers, not the fleeting attention they can attract for advertisers.

At Medium, we are proud of our product, our team, and our culture. Medium’s website and mobile apps are accessed by millions of users each day. We’re looking for mindful, empathetic, and self-aware leaders to join our team and help us move thinking forward. With a strong focus on growth and personal development, Medium is the ideal place to develop your skills in an environment that is built on mutual trust and respect.

What will you do?

    • You will lead a team that's focused on building out a foundational platform for growing Medium’s user base and business. You will be responsible for growing and inspiring this team of engineers through a combination of coaching, mentoring, feedback, and hands-on career development.
    • You will work collaboratively with partners from Marketing, Product, and Design to define the team strategy and roadmap, and then help the team execute on that roadmap using agile development methodologies.
    • You will help your team make smart technical decisions that balance both short-term and long-term goals.
    • You will cultivate a healthy, collaborative engineering culture that’s in line with our values.

Who are you?

    • You have 5+ years of professional software development experience, and 4+ years of recent experience managing an engineering team.
    • You have a track record of building and retaining diverse, high-performing teams that have a culture of quality and continuous improvement.
    • You have built and shipped high quality consumer facing products in a fast-paced, agile product development team.
    • You have a deep technical understanding of backend development systems, and a strong familiarity with Javascript, Node.js, and/or Go.
This role is based in our San Francisco office, New York office, or remote within the US.
