  • Maintain empathy for the team by keeping awareness of engineering processes and practices. Examples may include:
    • evaluating individual workflow during one on ones
    • ensuring production readiness reviews are being conducted
    • collaborating with internal stakeholders throughout the department, as the single point of contact for any internal Applied ML requests
  • Actively seek and hire globally-distributed talent
  • Contribute to the sense of psychological safety in your team
  • Foster technical decision making on the team, but make final decisions when necessary
  • Draft quarterly OKRs and Engineering KPIs

  • Working knowledge of modern frontend frameworks such as React or Vue.js
  • Product company or startup experience
  • Computer Science education or equivalent experience
  • Passionate about open source and developer tools

Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
