Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web.
We are adding a Group Engineering Manager to our team to lead one of our strategic pillars in engineering. In this role you will empower your team to deliver impactful outcomes by developing and creating buy-in for sub-team vision and strategy in collaboration with cross-functional partners and leadership.
About the role
- Location: San Francisco HQ or US remote
As a Group Engineering Manager you’ll:
- Advocate for your team emphasizing career growth and personal development
- Scale your organization by partnering with Recruiting to attract and retain top talent
- Collaborate with cross-functional peers such as Product and Design to set goals and define business strategy
- Prioritize execution and support your team in delivering high-quality results
- Drive goal-setting with your team and how them accountable for results
- Create and iterate on processes to increase the effectiveness of your teams
- Guide your team to make sound architecture decisions and create an environment where technical innovation thrives
- Exemplify Webflow’s Core Behaviors in the pursuit of our audacious two-fold mission to democratize software development and enable team members to lead meaningful and impactful lives
That said, these role 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 tackle passion projects outside of your role responsibilities.
You’ll thrive as a Group Engineering Manager if:
- You’ve been responsible for setting the vision and strategy for a division of engineering
- You have a deep understanding of Agile fundamentals and the mental models that promote strong execution
- You have rapidly scaled teams and know how to develop and execute a growth strategy
- You are committed to cultivating an inclusive team culture
- You have managed geographically distributed teams
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.
