About the Role

Engineering at is about more than just writing code - it's crafting unique experiences, building products that inspire creativity and allow our users to do great work. We expect our engineers to care about how our products are built, how they look, how they feel, and how they function. As their leader, you should care about these things too!

We're looking for a front-end engineering manager to join our growing engineering team and lead and build a team of talented and creative front-end engineers. Our engineering managers have 3 main roles:

  • Make their team better at their jobs. We want you to change the trajectory of your team members’ careers.
  • Advocate for them. Look for opportunities for them within the organization and beyond.
  • Unblock them. Help them work at their maximum potential - working with other teams in the company to make sure that nothing gets in their way.
You’ll love our team, and our tech stack is pretty great too – the Front End team work in a React/Redux codebase working that uses an API built using cutting edge technology like React, Elixir, Swift, Docker, and AWS Lambda.


  • A love of people management, great products and product design
  • Past experience of planning, executing, and delivering projects with multiple engineers in an agile environment. Note the use of a lowercase 'a' in 'agile' – we're pragmatic, and it would be pretty awesome if you were too.
  • 5+ years of experience working across the full-stack. You don't need to have mastered any one side, but understanding a spectrum of technologies at varying degrees of expertise is important.
  • 3+ years of experience writing client side web code utilizing React, Ember, Vue or similar. (We use React, Redux and Styled Components for our web app).
  • 2+ years of people management experience would be good, but if you’ve spent 2 years thinking about people management, then we’d like to speak to you too.


  • Managing our Front End Engineering team - coach them, advocate for them, unblock them - basically make them happy and productive human beings.
  • Providing technical leadership to the engineers and be accountable for the technical decisions made on your team
  • Work closely with Product, Design, and other cross-functional partners to create a meaningful vision and roadmap for the team - once a feature ships, you'll pay close attention to the impact of the work, and iterate towards a successful outcome
  • Grow, educate, hire, and retain a high-performing team with high delivery cadence in an agile environment
  • Build of culture of engineering excellence with a focus on performance, scalability, privacy, and security


  • Competitive salary and equity
  • Paid parental leave for primary or secondary caregivers
  • Unlimited PTO and designated Volunteering paid time off
  • Work From Anywhere Week
  • Yearly stipend for learning and development
  • Medical, Dental, Vision Insurance and OneMedical membership
