Job Description / Skills Required
Are you a Senior Engineering Manager interested in solving real-world problems for an industry relatively untouched by technology? Are you passionate about leading teams, people and new initiatives forward? Then we have a role for you...
Snapdocs is an early-stage, rapidly growing company focused on digitizing the mortgage closing process. Backed by investors like Sequoia, F-Prime Capital, SV Angel, and Y Combinator (WC14), we bring modern, elegant software to a paper based pillar of the US economy that still relies on fax machines and manila envelopes. The problems we solve involve workflow, automation, integration and data. As Snapdocs enters its next phase of growth, we’re looking for a Senior Engineering Manager to lead multiple teams & multiple projects from start to finish. That’s where you come in…
Reporting to the VP of Engineering, your time will be dedicated to managing the software development efforts for two teams building net new products. Your responsibilities span but are not limited to directing day-to-day efforts, managing new projects, conducting code reviews, architecting distributed systems down to supporting the team in designing and developing high-volume, low-latency applications for mission-critical systems. Today the teams will consist of 6-8 full stack engineers in total initially with the goal to grow over time. Fully responsible for delivering world-class software, you’ll grow the capabilities of the team through hiring, coaching, mentoring and direct feedback. We are an agile scrum shop big on continuous improvement so expect to be running sprint planning meetings, stand-ups, retros & post mortems. While working closely with other engineering leaders, you’ll help drive innovation & establish best practices across the organization as we scale.
Ideally, during your IC engineering days (8+ years), you have gained experience building service-oriented architectures that powered internal and external customer solutions. During that time you have worked with at least some of our stack (Ruby on Rails, React/Redux, Postgres, AWS, Kubernetes, Docker), while building back end services, APIs and distributed systems. You might have picked up proficiency in a few different languages along the way (Java, Python, Go etc) and programming styles (functional, object-oriented, script/procedural). These days (the past 5+ years) you can be found coaching, mentoring, performance monitoring, managing scope, reviewing code, making architectural and technical decisions to drive the SDLC. Bonus points if you have had the opportunity to manage managers in a fast paced high growth phase company before. You are comfortable navigating ambiguity, have firsthand experience taking new products from “zero to one” and are adept at building strong relationships with PM leaders. You are a natural at balancing moving fast with autonomy and leveraging the rest of the engineering org to get stuff done. You have a bias for good testing & strive to ship quality code. You lead from within and understand that coaching and mentoring is almost always better than “managing” (but you know how and when to do that too). When the need arises you are comfortable rolling up your sleeves for code reviews and diving in to help unblock the team. The company is fully remote today so experience leading remote / distributed teams is a major plus.
Snapdocs’ culture is one that strongly values diversity and drive. We want to work with people of different backgrounds and different paths in life, and we trust our team members to make smart decisions. This means we value independent work as well as collaboration. We provide a slew of excellent benefits ranging from the standard stuff like a matching 401(k), 21 days PTO, work from home wellness reimbursements to the not so standard 10-year exercise window on your options! Once we’re safely back in the offices - which are in the heart of the FiDi in San Francisco and downtown Denver- we’ll still offer flexibility in deciding where, exactly, you work best.
