Job Description

MyTime is searching for an engineering manager who has managed software development teams at fast growing tech startups with complex SAAS products. The position will report directly to the CTO.

This engineering manager isn’t afraid to roll up their sleeves, take on the challenges thrown their way and work aggressively. You will manage a globally distributed team consisting of full-stack engineers, as well as back-end and front-end specialists.

You will take on projects with a delivery mind-set, and do whatever is needed to unblock the team.

Advocate for engineering-driven projects (e.g. addressing tech debt) and work with product management peers to prioritize them.
  • Independently own and drive multiple mission critical work streams. This includes the planning, execution, deployment, monitoring and support in production of features and capabilities owned by your team.
  • Balance competing priorities, such as technical debt, customer issuers, and features, to ensure we continuously deliver value on time with high quality.
  • Manage engineering metrics such as team velocity, delivery commitments, code quality, and successful deployments. Communicate team progress upward and around through status reports.

Qualifications
