Position Description

We have an incredibly talented and fast growing engineering team looking for leadership & mentorship from an experienced engineering manager. The teams mission is to create the next generation of cross-platform apps that can change the experience at conferences & meetings for millions across the world.

You will be managing 3 squads totalling 9 developers working on a complex and cutting-edge front-end platform reporting directly to our CTO.

This is very fast paced role, working with a team of experienced and very smart, collaborative and empathetic developers. We're an engineer run company and want individuals looking to work in an environment where they can holistically building software "the right way" with appropriate architecture, quality, and performance baked into our products from the get-go over hacked together solutions. If you want to help lead, grow and mentor a team like this, then you've found the right place!
