About the Role
Engineering with the business is about more than just writing code - it's crafting unique experiences, building products that inspire creativity and allow our users to do great work. We expect our engineers to care about how our products are built, how they look, how they feel, and how they function. As their leader, you should care about these things too!
We're looking for a front-end engineering manager to join our growing engineering team and lead and build a team of talented and creative front-end engineers. Our engineering managers have 3 main roles:
Make their team better at their jobs. We want you to change the trajectory of your team members’ careers. Advocate for them. Look for opportunities for them within the organization and beyond.
Unblock them. Help them work at their maximum potential - working with other teams in the company to make sure that nothing gets in their way.

● Providing technical leadership to the engineers and be accountable for the technical decisions made on your team
● Work closely with Product, Design, and other cross-functional partners to create a meaningful vision and roadmap for the team - once a feature ships, you'll pay close attention to the impact of the work, and iterate towards a successful outcome
