Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web. We’re looking for an engineering manager to help us grow and scale our application and published site hosting infrastructure.
About the role
- Location: SF or US Remote
As an engineering manager, you'll...
- Hold 1:1s with each of your reports where you offer them a platform for growth, allow them to gain clarity, offer suggestions, listen to them, learn about them as human beings, receive feedback, and more.
- Guide decisions and create an action-first environment where it's safe to fail as long as you learn.
- Lead and train a team of backend and infrastructure engineers as they support and improve our hosting and continuous integration infrastructure.
- Understand the nuances of our various infrastructure costs and work to optimize them over time.
- Unblock your reports to provide as much fruitful autonomy as possible.
- Provide feedback and radical candor designed to steer your reports toward meaningful progress and away from distractions, apathy, or a lack of purpose.
- Guide your reports in their career and participate in performance evaluations.
That said, these responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly. And this isn’t just a philosophical bent: we actually give you 4 hours a week (10% of the work week) to pursue passion projects outside of your role responsibilities.
You’ll thrive as an engineering manager if you:
- Have experience managing an operations/infrastructure hosting team that provides on-call support for a large application
- Have experience in a Technical Leadership role
- Have reached a senior engineering position at some point in your career
- Embody Servant Leadership and possess a hunger to amplify others
- Are comfortable delivering tough feedback respectfully and with candor and kindness
- Understand the technical architecture of complex web and mobile applications
If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of the role’s requirements.
At Webflow, we believe that our success will be defined not only by what we do — but also by how and why we do it. So, here is the Webflow “why” and our “how”:
