  • Empower the engineering team to achieve a high level of technical productivity and quality
  • Develop engineers on the team, helping them advance in their careers
  • Recruit engineers that are amongst the best in the industry, from outreach through close
  • Aren't afraid to jump into the codebase and write when needed

Who you are:

  • An eye for great products and can work with product engineers, sales, and customers to effectively deliver them
  • The ability to thrive on a high level of autonomy and responsibility
  • Managed engineering teams that have a strong record of shipping
