Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web. We’re looking for a senior engineering manager to help our team achieve ambitious goals while cultivating an environment of excellence, care, and curiosity.
About the role
- Location: San Francisco HQ or US remote
As a Senior Engineering Manager, you’ll:
- Manage the engineering team building the next evolution of our product: no-code visual development of website business logic.
- Lead a distributed and diverse team of engineers implementing robust backend services and rich, usable, frontend experiences.
- Oversee the scope and implementation of new features and systems that are reliable, performant, and secure at scale.
- Facilitate the team development process, working closely with Product Management, Design, and QA leads.
- Help shape organizational processes and work with other Engineering Managers to continually evaluate how we can better support our reports and each other.
- Lead by example and embody the spirit of Webflow's dual missions and core behaviors.
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 related to Webflow.
You’ll thrive as an Senior Engineering Manager if you:
- Have 4+ years experience managing and scaling engineering teams in a growth environment
- Possess a strong technical foundation in backend services, building complex web applications, and AWS/Cloud architecture
- Value accountability and will support your team in reaching their fullest potential
- Have experience managing agile teams to adhere to software delivery cycles
- Can empathetically deliver tough feedback with respect and kindness
If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that meeting just 50% of a role’s requirements puts you in the running.
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”:
