Our fast growing SF based Edtech company are seeking an Engineering Manager to help change how districts across the country operate and run every single day.

You should have a passion for leading teams, for building an inclusive and collaborative engineering culture and for developing products for communities traditionally underserved by technology. If you believe 10x engineers are born out of 10x environments and want to have a huge impact with the work you do everyday, get in touch.

The Role:

  • Building a culture of engineering excellence via giving your team autonomy and setting clear goals and expectations. You empower your team members to make decisions and ask questions that will help them do their jobs better.

  • Growing, inspiring, and managing an engineering team capable of prioritizing and implementing the highest-impact projects that align with business objectives. Be proactive in identifying and clearing roadblocks for the team.

  • Providing hands-on technical leadership in day-to-day software implementation cycles, write specifications, make architectural and design trade-off decisions, participate in design reviews, dive into coding and troubleshooting as required to fill the gaps in the group bandwidth.

  • Nurturing the technical and leadership growth of other engineers. Improve code quality and make others better through code reviews, pairing, documentation, technical guidance, and mentoring.

  • Becoming a trusted advisor, contributor, and mentor to your team; your team members look to you for guidance and professional development and seek out interactions with you.


  • Intense curiosity and problem-solving nature — it brings you joy to chew through difficult technical problems and develop simple, clean code and architecture for complex needs.

  • Track record of building usable, scalable products (we'd love to see your portfolio or links to any projects you can share!)

  • Extensive web development management experience. Ideal if you have knowledge of Rails, JavaScript, and jQuery. Experience managing products through development life cycle.

  • Experience managing engineers and projects across the full stack: Frontend, Backend, DevOps, QA, as well as with distributed web-based systems and service-oriented architecture.

  • Collaborative development style: you enjoy pair programming and learning with and from others. The success of the team and the company is prioritized above your own self-interest.​​

  • Experience with architecting and scaling SaaS enterprise applications is a strong bonus.
