If autonomy, ownership, and having meaningful input at the company you work for is important to you, come join our growing team!

Brigit is doing innovative and exciting work, but don’t just take our word for it, our work is being recognized by others:

The Role

We’re searching for an Engineering Manager to help us scale our team and our engineering organization as a whole. This person will be responsible for bringing out the best in their team of engineers. You will coach individuals and set (and remove) processes to help teams operate efficiently. You’ll mentor, share feedback, guide careers, and create an inclusive environment where people can do their best work. We have ambitious goals to scale, and need an experienced manager to help us do so.

What you'll be doing

  • Leading and developing a high performance and diverse team of engineers and technologists of varying seniority levels

  • Coaching engineers by making sure they get feedback, and helping them act on it

  • Charting out career paths and building development plans for team members

  • Helping set and uphold high standards for code quality, test coverage, and platform stability without sacrificing delivery and iteration speed

  • Connecting business requirements to engineering goals, and ensuring they stay in step

  • Collaborating with product, design, data, and business counterparts to solve customer problems with technology

  • Iterating on internal processes to help the team achieve more with less, and deliver impactful features for our users

  • Contributing to technical direction by evaluating large strategic decisions, and by evaluating design documents for engineering initiatives

What You Have

  • 5+ years of hands-on professional software development experience

  • 2+ years of software engineering management and mentorship experience

  • A desire to build an inclusive, diverse, and high performing team. Even better if you've done that many times already in a startup environment.

  • Experience regularly collaborating with product and design teams

  • ​​You've built large and complex projects at scale, and maintained them over many release cycles

  • We use Java running in GCP, and React Native. If you have experience in that stack, all the better, but it’s not strictly necessary.
