We’re hiring an experienced engineering manager to lead a team that’s emerging as one of the most critical to our company: Our CRM & Business Platform team. As Hearsay builds ever-deeper integrations into the day-to-day operations of our customers, the software we’re building out has to reliably tie our products into their business systems and workflows -- at-scale, in real time, every time.
As the manager of this team, you will manage project goals, contribute to product strategy, and lead the design, build, and deployment of systems across our stack. We care deeply about our people and expect our managers to hire, retain, mentor and grow their teams -- but we’re a small, fast-moving company and need managers who have the technical chops to roll up their sleeves and deploy code too.
Hearsay Systems is a San Francisco-based, venture-backed company started in 2010. We established a Seattle office in 2015 and are both fully committed and incredibly excited to be growing our presence in the Seattle community. As such, this role is also a unique opportunity to help us grow and define a unique and welcoming culture both across the company and for our Seattle team specifically -- working with our head of Seattle ops, our recruiting team and our people & culture executives. If that sounds like something you’d enjoy, we’d love to talk.
