We believe, at the risk of sounding immodest, that we have built one of the best consumer software teams in New York. We're looking for an experienced manager and leader who can help us scale up our development operation and empower our ridiculously talented team to build the ticketing platform of the future.
SeatGeek is a product-centric organization that deploys code into production multiple times per day. As we grow, the scale of our technical challenges - and their effect on our customers - continues to increase. We want to ensure we continue to build the best product we can.
What You'll Do On the People Side
- Manage a high-performing team of engineers.
- Provide regular job performance feedback , hold one-on-ones, and provide career development support to your direct reports.
- Train and mentor the more junior engineers on best practices.
- Play an active role in our recruiting process, helping us to grow our engineering team in any way you can.
What You'll Do On The Technical Side
- Perform code reviews and provide technical and design feedback to the team.
- Participate in planning cycles, and help us keep our priorities in order.
- Communicate technical and product decisions to the right people, resolve blocking issues, and keep our development machine humming.
- ...and if you have any free time after doing all of that stuff, writing code is always a good way to stay sharp!
What We're Looking For
- At least five years of experience as an engineer in a role that was mostly about writing code.
- Irreproachable technical skills. Your team should look up to you as a mentor.
- Knowledge of industry technology trends. You can help your team make good tooling and framework decisions that will set them up for success.
- At least three years of experience as an engineering manager of productive, motivated teams.
- Terrific communication skills. You understand how to lead by setting context.
