About Relay Payments:

Relay Payments is a venture-backed startup, building a contactless payment network in the transportation and logistics industry. We’re working hard to ensure America continues running during COVID-19, and well beyond. Our mission drives everything we do! The transportation and logistics industry has continued to run on cash and industry-specific checks (similar to cashiers checks) since the 1970s. Relay Payments is spearheading the modernization of payments, pushing the industry into the 21st century. We work with the largest Carriers, Freight Brokers, and 3PLs in the United States who care about their drivers to ensure that their products get to shelves quickly for consumer consumption.

We’re looking for ambitious team members who share our values and are ready to think bigger! 

About The Role:

As an Engineering Manager at Relay, you’ll be responsible for mentoring, managing, and growing a team of high caliber engineers who are architecting a next generation payments network. In this role, you’ll help shape technical strategy, support the team to set and achieve business outcomes, and establish processes to help the team operate effectively/efficiently. You’ll work closely with the rest of the management team to create an environment conducive for creativity to thrive.

Our Core Values: 

  • Invent the Future - We embrace the spirit of invention, the idea that there’s always a better way.

  • We’re in it Together - We’re all in, committed to, and driven by our shared ambition and vision; we understand that alignment and collaboration are imperative. We set aside our ego to actively sync with one another, becoming greater than the sum of our parts. We are consistently open and generous with information, clear, concise and direct in our communication.

What makes a great fit:

  • 3+ years of experience managing and leading teams
  • Experience driving process improvements on the team and department level
  • Experience mentoring other engineers - engage in architectural decisions, leverage pair programming, give thoughtful feedback in code reviews, help with problem/solution discovery.
  • Experience working closely with product managers, designers, sales, customer success, and other stakeholders
  • You strongly value automated testing and implementing good testing practices
