What We Are Looking For:

We’re looking for a Software Development Manager - R&D who is capable of providing hands-on technical leadership within our software development team.

What You’ll Do:

You will serve your development team, facilitating the delivery of business value though research and proofs of concept of next-gen initiatives.  You’ll coordinate the team through their agile process, ensuring that their work is well formulated, dependencies are satisfied, and that the team is effectively self-organizing and executing.  You’ll apply a critical eye to identify opportunities for team improvement, and you’ll work through people to accomplish those goals.

You’ll also be responsible for evaluating and developing individuals.  You’ll be a constant coach for your reports, celebrating their successes and helping them to grow to become even better engineers.  And when individual performance issues arise, you’ll address them honestly and compassionately, without allowing them to linger.

  • Before you took your career into management, you were an elite software developer and you routinely dig into your team’s code to understand how it works

  • You know IP networking, web protocols, and REST

  • You have worked with Docker containers and Kubernetes
  • You have experience in functional programming languages like Haskell, F#, Erlang
