You thrive in a fast-paced, rapidly changing environment and are able to balance solutions that are elegant and scalable yet simple and pragmatic. You’ll be joining a team that’s passionate about technology, building products we’re proud of, and upholding a strong, collaborative team culture. We’re excited to meet you.

What you'll do:

    • Lead and mentor a team of talented engineers, providing guidance and support to ensure successful project execution while fostering a collaborative and high-performing work environment.
    • Collaborate with the engineering management team to develop and execute a technology vision and strategy in alignment with the company's goals and objectives, staying ahead of industry trends and identifying opportunities for technological advancements.
    • Drive agile process management within the team, implementing and improving agile methodologies to enhance productivity, efficiency, and quality of deliverables.
    • Champion tactical areas of concern on the engineering team such as performance, accessibility, and community best practices in our code base and oversee the management of technical debt, SLOs, and code quality on the team.
    • Collaborate cross-functionally with product management, design, and other stakeholders to bring high quality projects from conception to production.
    • Define and track key metrics to measure engineering team performance, product quality, and project success, leveraging data-driven insights to continuously improve processes and drive results.
    • Drive a culture of innovation and continuous improvement within the engineering department, encouraging creativity, knowledge sharing, and the exploration of new technologies and tools.
    • Stay up-to-date with industry trends, emerging technologies, and best practices in agile methodologies, engineering management, and software development, and incorporate them into the team's processes and strategies.
    • Foster strong relationships with internal and external stakeholders, effectively communicating engineering initiatives, progress, and challenges to ensure alignment and transparency.
    • Recruit and hire new engineering team members.

Why we're excited about you:

    • 6+ years of experience building highly-scalable web applications
    • 2+ years of experience directly managing engineers
    • Extensive technical experience building consumer facing web applications at scale
    • You have experience building and recruiting high performing, diverse, engineering teams. We work to increase representation at all levels and make sure our employees feel valued and included, and as a leader, you care deeply about this and will help us execute on these goals.
    • You can build cross-functional relationships and establish trust and support between engineering and other teams.
    • Bonus for previous startup experience at similarly sized companies

Why you are excited about us:

    • Our team: We have a passionate, creative, and innovative team that is a lot of fun to work with.
    • Our mission: We’re doing work that matters – connecting lifelong learners around the world and empowering them to pursue their creativity.
    • Remote Culture: A healthy, productive working environment means different things for different people. We optimize for trust and invest in supporting remote teams, offer home office stipends for those that work best in their own space and co-working spaces for those that thrive in a social office environment, and focus on transparent communication to ensure an inclusive, equitable work environment for everyone.
    • Flexibility: We believe that doing your best work means living a full life. That means different things for everyone, so we optimize for trust, invest to support remote teams, offer home office stipends and co-working spaces in multiple cities, have an unlimited vacation policy (with a required minimum!), and encourage work-life balance.
    • Impact: You’ll have the chance to directly impact the user experience around how students learn and how teachers create and share content on Skillshare.
    • Your growth: You’ll have the opportunity to wear a lot of hats and take on more responsibility over time. We have a fresh $70 million in capital and a very, very long to-do list.
    • Benefits: We believe that doing your best work means living a full life. We support our team with unlimited PTO, gender-neutral parental leave, anniversary bonuses and sabbaticals, and healthy stipends for creativity, learning, and personal wellness.
