As a SoftwareEngineering Manager, you are first and foremost a people manager. You accomplish business goals by strengthening your team and motivating/retaining those already here. You are successful when your team is fully staffed and equipped with the right skills. Do you thrive on building valuable technical projects – ensuring that our software conforms with meaningful non-functional concerns while meeting a high quality standard? If so, we'd love to hear from you. 



Challenges on which you can expect to work:

  • Ensure High-Quality Software. You will work with Product Managers to define product vision and strategy and make certain that requirements are clear and sufficient to develop. Working with engineers, you will ensure software is secure, performant, scalable, maintainable, and extensible.

  • Cultivate a Successful Team. Your success at Bestow is significantly influenced by your ability to build and maintain a high-functioning engineering team. That team will, in turn, ensure we develop a high-quality engineering culture.

  • Predictably Deliver Software. Understanding your team's output and maintaining their maximum, balanced pace, you will be responsible for the successful delivery of software. In addition, you will also work with Technical Project Managers and Product Managers to quickly break ties and resolve blockers.

A Little About You:

  • 2+ years of engineering management experience
  • 5+ years of professional software development experience
  • Experience with both dynamic languages (Python preferred)
  • Experience with strongly-typed languages (Go preferred)
  • Experience with relational databases (PostgreSQL preferred) and columnar databases (BigQuery preferred)
