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 our CMS Team achieve ambitious goals while cultivating an environment of excellence, care, and curiosity.
About the role
- Location: San Francisco HQ or remote
As a Senior Engineering Manager, you’ll:
- Manage the team responsible for our core CMS features and infrastructure, the public facing REST API, and the data management layer of Webflow.
- Lead a product engineering team with members distributed globally across the U.S. and Europe.
- Help the team deliver new features and code improvements that scale and perform efficiently.
- Facilitate the team development process, working closely with Product Management, Design, and QA leads.
- Help shape company-wide processes and work with other Engineering Managers to continually evaluate how we can better support our reports and each other.
- 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.
- Efficiently 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.
- Help your reports lead healthy and balanced lives.
- Lead by example and embody the spirit of Webflow's mission 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 engineering manager if you:
- Have experience managing agile engineering teams
- Embody Servant Leadership and possess a hunger to amplify others
- Have the empathy to deliver tough feedback respectfully with candor and kindness
- Understand the technical architecture of complex web applications
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.
