Software Engineering Manager, Discovery Team

Seattle, WA

We are looking for an Engineering Manager to lead the Discovery team. The team’s raison d'être is to connect millions of customers to products for moms, babies, and kids in a fun, engaging and personalized way.

What makes this role different from a myriad of other technical leadership roles is impact. When you ship a feature, it’s visible to the world through our mobile apps and the site earning you bragging rights in front of friends and family.  When the AB test for your feature turns positive, you become the talk of the senior leadership meetings, because the feature drives millions of dollars in customer demand. When you come up with a cool idea that inspires our customers, a Mom out there will be able to find a cute rain jacket for her toddler drawing questions “oh, where did you buy that”? at a neighborhood playground.  
 
The success in this role rests on five pillars.  First, it’s about Leadership skills. You have a track recording of inspiring your team and setting a great vision for it.  You invest into professional growth of your engineers.  You tackle performance challenges head-on. Second, you have some serious technical chops.  While we don’t expect you to write code or do technical design on a day-to-day basis, we will check both skills during the interview, because we don’t believe in people-only managers.  Third, you should be able to own schedule, juggle priorities, run sprints, etc.  Fourth, you are excited about solving problems using technology. You are the team’s cheerleader. Fifth, you act with empathy and respect.

If this reads like someone you look at in the mirror, give us a shout – we've been looking for you.
