About the Role - 100% Remote

Engineering Manager is the first manager level where we expect people management to be the majority of your focus, you should be totally removed from your team's technical contribution critical path. However you may still be expected to write and review code from time to time. Engineering Managers generally lead a single, larger team responsible for multiple projects, drive all the hiring and interviewing for it, mentor and guide the career development of their direct reports, and work closely with their product partners to prioritize and scope work.

The goal for an Engineering Manager is to deeply understand all the technology used by your team, own the production operation and monitoring of your projects, manage your team members careers, expectations, performance and level of happiness, adjust the team processes by listening to feedback and guiding the team through the changes whilst ensuring that the changes you make impact not only your team but also other teams that your primary team collaborates with.

For this role we are looking for an experienced Engineering Manager to help build a team focused on user journeys and workflows across our pro trading web and mobile products. Think - onboarding, first time user experiences around funding or trading. This will involve working with our partners in data, product and design to build data and an understanding of current points of friction and design solutions to continually iterate and improve our flows to make it easier for our users to accomplish their goals. You will be expected to have a pragmatic attitude to delivery and demonstrate an attitude of ownership of outcomes and value delivered to our users. 

Everybody with the Engineering organization is mission oriented and results driven, we put “accelerating the worldwide adoption of cryptocurrency” above all else and we index heavily on tangible business results over ‘busy work’, It’s not about how much code was written, it’s about how much impact was delivered with as little code as possible, or even better - solving a problem without writing any new code.
