Company Overview

At Netlify, we're building a platform to empower web developers to build better, more elaborate web projects than ever before. We're aiming to change the landscape of modern web development. Netlify currently serves more than 700,000 developers worldwide.

We’re a venture-backed company, and so far we've raised about $45 million from Andreessen Horowitz, Kleiner Perkins, Bloomberg, and prominent founders and professionals in our space.

Netlify is a diverse group of incredible talent from all over the world. We’re ~40% woman or non-binary, and are composed of about half as many nationalities as we are team members.

About the role:

The role breaks down into three big parts:

  • Expansion: We are rapidly hiring and we need to expand the team. You will help us continue to build a diverse and inclusive team. This involves identifying skills the team needs, shepherding candidates through the hiring process, and building a more reliable, unbiased, and fair hiring process.
  • Delivery: Balancing technical debt and new features is always nuanced. You will partner with the product management team to manage this balance in accordance with the needs of the business. You will help define a project management process to help delivery and predictability with the goal of continuously shipping code to production.
  • Cultivation: You'll be instrumental in growing the careers of the individual engineers on your team. This means being their advocate and helping guide them in the direction they want. It also means being a culture driver on the team, fostering a positive, trusting, and supportive team.

We have a small headquarters in San Francisco but we are a largely distributed engineering team. You will need to enable the team to work productively across different timezones. Fostering good habits of documentation, empathy, and integrity to deliver on committed work are some of the key elements for success on our team. Experience working and managing remote teams is a big plus.

Ideal Candidate:

  • Experienced manager of a technical frontend team
  • Understanding of how engineering teams collaborate and track a project delivery
  • Familiarity, or willingness to learn, about the technologies and processes needed (e.g. React, Redux, CSS, accessibility)
  • Commitment to designing a hiring process that is fair, efficient, and repeatable
  • Clear communication of priorities and expectations to both team and leadership
  • Passion for mentorship and advocacy for your team members in their career development
  • Ability to work across multiple timezones with remote colleagues
  • A desire to succeed personally through the health and success of the team

About the team

This role is for the core frontend team, which works as part of the product services area, delivering the main Netlify app experience. They work very closely with product design, user research and the backend team, as well as documentation engineers and product management.
