At Gusto, we serve 100,000 small business customers with our Payroll, Benefits, and HR software suite, which allows them to move faster and gives them peace of mind about back-office tasks in their business. Our Product Engineering teams build this suite of software, each focused on a different slice of the pie: Payroll, Benefits, and HR.
We’re looking for a strong, motivated, and creative engineer to lead part of the Engineering team. As a leader on this team, you’ll be given full autonomy over everything in your domain as you scale what this team means at Gusto.
Here’s what you'll do:
Lead and mentor a team of 3-7 talented engineers
Work on exciting new products, helping employers build communities within their organizations and building great places to work for their employees
Collaborate closely with our product team to define, plan, and prioritize our product roadmap
Write code every day. Develop, test, and deploy features across the entire stack alongside your teammates
Ship products that are integral to Gusto’s long-term strategy and have significant growth impact
Partner with recruiting to help scale the engineering team by actively sourcing and closing new talent
Bring out the best in the individuals on your team by enabling them to do the best work of their lives.
Here's what we're looking for:
7+ years industry experience in software engineering, with considerable full-stack web application experience
3+ years of management experience
Strong hands on coding, design, and architectural skills
Comfortable with ambiguity and rapid change: excited about pushing out lots of code quickly and constantly iterating
Thorough and methodical: you enjoy working with data and using it to make informed business decisions
Empathetic and user-focused: you care deeply about the product experience, you understand users’ motivations and frustrations, and you genuinely want to help them
Empathetic and employee-focused: you care deeply about the people in your team, helping them to achieve their personal and professional goals, and enabling them to do the best work of their lives.
Experience working in our stack (Ruby on Rails, React.js) is a plus, but not required

Our customers come from all walks of life and so do we. We hire people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes our company stronger. If you share our values and our enthusiasm for small businesses, you will find a home at Gusto.
