Based in Washington, D.C., Quorum is a fast-growing software company and is the leading provider of workflow software and information services for government affairs professionals across the corporations, non-profits, associations, and governmental end-markets.  Quorum allows users to manage stakeholder engagement, launch grassroots advocacy campaigns, and track legislative activity at all levels of government, including federal, state and local.

The Engineering Manager on the Core team will coach, manage, and support a team of 3-5 full-stack engineers and work cross-functionally with product and design teams. The Engineering Manager will be hands-on and own the technical roadmap planning and execution in collaboration with the Core Product Manager, Application Architecture and Design teams. In managing the individual contributors, hands-on coding and technical guidance are expected at about 50% in any given week though  delegation of technical tasks is expected in most cases. The Engineering Manager is committed to delivering high-quality results and working through challenges and obstacles, all while managing expectations with various stakeholders. 

What You'll Do

  • First Week: You will work closely with an onboarding mentor to complete the standard engineering onboarding process and learn to ship new code to production to understand the end-to-end tech stack and software development lifecycle.
  • First Month: You will be up and running with your standard managerial practices and processes, learn the ins and outs of Quorum’s Core products, technical strategy, roadmap, and challenges, and get to know the members of your team, product managers and other leaders on the technology team.
  • First Six Months: You will fully own the planning and execution of the Core team and technical roadmap and milestones. You will mentor and coach existing team members to improve their skills and help bring on new team members into the organization. 
  • First Year: Your team will have successfully completed the implementation of the design system and delivered product & UX improvements to improve core product experience for all user types.

  • You have experience with cloud-native architectures.
  • You have excellent communication skills, including good English.
  • You have strong project management skills as demonstrated by a strong track record of successfully completed complex technical projects that were directly owned by you

  • You have experience with US-based companies and hybrid teams.

About the Software Development Team

  • We're a fast-growing team dedicated to improving our people, processes, and platform. The team is primarily structured into product-oriented squads.
  • We support many different products but internally think of them as one system with a single unified codebase. We aim to build centralized systems that handle complex problems for multiple features and products.
  • We’re focused on doing the important things the right way -- we write solid documentation, test our code well, design for scale, and follow defined software development processes.
  • We follow best-in-class security practices to safeguard our data and application against bad actors. We regularly test and update processes and technology to fight complacency because we know good security is a continuous effort.
  • We curate high-quality datasets essential for effective mapping and tracking of the government and public affairs spaces. Our datasets underpin our promise to give users the information necessary to make smart decisions influencing policy.
  • We set rigorous quality standards and monitor them with a mix of programmatic and manual verifications to ensure users maintain high trust in our systems.
  • We’re very close as a team and invest not only in each others’ skills and careers but also in building real relationships with one another: product development is a team sport, and we believe that it’s better (and more fun) to work on a team of people that you know well and care about.

Our Work Environment

  • We are a remote-first team with flexible work options: work remotely, or you may choose to come into our office in Belo Horizonte.

Quorum Is Working to Advance Pay Equity: What Does That Mean For You?

In an effort to continue to build a diverse and inclusive work environment that advances pay equity, Quorum has implemented a “No Negotiation” policy for base salary for new hires for roles that are currently staffed by three or more team members. This means that candidates for the Engineering Manager role cannot negotiate Quorum’s base salary offer.

Here’s our promise to you:

  • We will not ask you what you are currently earning.
  • We will consider years of relevant experience, relevant professional certifications/education, and performance expectations in setting what we believe is a competitive, fair base salary offer.
  • We will be transparent about our compensation structure (see above) so that all candidates have equal access to compensation information and can make an informed decision about whether or not Quorum is the right workplace for them.

If you are interested in learning more about how negotiation impacts pay equity and/or why other start-ups have decided to implement a “No Negotiation” policy of some type, here are a few resources: Project Include, AAUW, Ministry for Women, Magoosh.

Note: Quorum does not endorse or verify any of the information provided in the resources on the impact of negotiation on pay equity. We provide these resources simply to increase awareness of a topic we believe is important for both employers and candidates to consider.
