Full Time
We are looking for an experienced engineering manager to lead the student experience team, which is responsible for delivering solutions that give our creators the flexibility, reliability, control, and insights for fulfilling engaging student experiences in a scalable way. 

As a part of the engineering leadership team, you will help build the team’s technical vision and direction as well as establish processes and drive initiatives that result in technical, operational, and cultural improvements across the engineering team.

While you will not be expected to write critical path code, you will be directly managing individual contributors and engineering leads and will be expected to have a working knowledge of our architecture and have the technical ability to provide technical strategy.  You are adept at achieving results not through micromanagement but rather through empowering your teams and helping them to run autonomously.  Above all else, you are an outstanding people manager who cares deeply about the well-being and growth of your engineers with a track record of coaching your team members to success and developing their careers.

This position reports to the Director of Engineering, Core.
