We're looking for an experienced Software Engineering Manager to join a team responsible for building and operating backend services that power critical features for MapMyFitness. This team works in cross functional teams to architect, plan and execute on new and existing features that help people achieve their fitness goals. We're enthusiastic practitioners of devops and engineers think deeply about reliability and operation of their services. We regularly schedule game days to test services with fault injection in production and share on-call duties for services our customers depend on.
Our Engineering Managers are responsible for coaching and leading teams of talented engineers as we deliver on our roadmap. To thrive in this role, you execute well in an agile environment where we'll depend on you to make pragmatic decisions, establish and use tight feedback loops, and take calculated risks based on your knowledge from collaborating with your peers. You've led teams before—either with direct reports or as a technical lead—and are comfortable delivering and receiving feedback with trust and candor. You know that your success is dependent on the success of your team, and you're committed to coach and serve a team of experienced engineers.
You value pragmatic technical solutions, have experience scoping, building, and operating critical systems with millions of daily transactions, and you're comfortable taking on-call rotations alongside your team. Your primary tools are empathy, communication and a positive growth mindset. Our technology stack contains multiple programming languages (Java 8+, Scala, Go and Python) as well as common stores like DynamoDB, MySQL (RDS) and Kafka. We love AWS and Kubernetes. You don't need to be the most technical person in the room, but you have enough experience that you often ask good questions and raise interesting points for discussion in planning meetings and architectural reviews. You care most deeply about helping your team succeed while loving the work that they do.
