In 2018, we doubled our engineering team in San Francisco, and we are looking for a metrics-focused Engineering Manager to lead a diverse team of exceptional engineers. We believe in being transparent about the data that drives our organization, so that everyone is empowered to make meaningful decisions when leading their teams.

  • Mentor and guide the professional and technical development of your team members.
  • We help engineers with their career growth by assigning them to projects tailored to their skill levels, personalities, work styles, and professional goals.
