Engineering Manager

Building a product is always about balance — between done and perfect, between taking on tech debt and taking your time, between what's needed and what's possible.

Building a product is always about balance — between done and perfect, between taking on tech debt and taking your time, between what's needed and what's possible. In the lifecycle of a feature or even an industry, the right balance evolves.

At Reforge engineering, our situation is a little unique. Our customers are the leading practitioners in the tech world. Employees from Google, Github, Reddit, Airbnb, and more look to us to provide in-depth organized insights that accelerate their careers. Furthermore, they look to us to provide a product experience that reflects the high quality of our content. In the beginning, Reforge was a content-driven company, and we are evolving to become a product-driven company. We want to be the example of world-class education and community product.

It will be your job to think with us, to identify and build the best software we can in the moment with a grander vision in mind, and help us move the professional education industry to a place that reflects the reality of work. Perfectly balanced, as all things should be (sorry, couldn't help myself).

You'll be joining as part of the foundational team of a profitable proven startup. We bootstrapped to high seven-figure revenue, led by experienced entrepreneurs, and recently we raised a $20M round from A16Z. In addition, you will integrate into our community of subject matter experts, including the leaders who helped build companies like Slack, Pinterest, CreditKarma, ClassPass, ipsy, Eventbrite, SurveyMonkey, Thumbtack, and more.


In a traditional world, before the advent of tech, bankers, manufacturing leaders, and others progressed to the top of their industry through an MBA. Tech followed suit for some time, with early tech company leaders heading into MBA programs at Stanford, MIT, and others. That's not true anymore. Tech has passed the MBA by and people are trying to figure out how to progress from mid career professional to the top of their field. Reforge is a new kind of educational company that helps you access the earned insights of the world's leading practitioners, learn and apply frameworks without leaving your job, and build a strong professional network. The path to the top of the tech profession is being solved here.

We work with the leaders of the fastest growing and most innovative companies such as Google, Facebook, Pinterest, Atlassian, Slack, and HubSpot to teach frontier topics to today's emerging leaders. Our content, community, experience, and brand combine into a unique product offering that creates unparalleled access to insights.

In just a couple of years, we've built a thriving community of emerging leaders solving problems at Airbnb, LinkedIn, Salesforce, Amazon, Facebook, New York Times, Peloton, Stitch Fix, and many more. Here are just a few comments from our alums:

“I got my MBA at Berkeley, but this program has been more transformational for me then the entire two years I spent there. Thank you!”

“Reforge has easily been one of the best investments of time and money I've ever made in my professional development. I love how the course codifies what I've been doing for the last four years as VP of Marketing.”

“Reforge is easily the highest quality professional skills program out there. If I had to choose between attending an unlimited number of industry conferences, versus going only to the Reforge, I'd choose Reforge without hesitation.”


  • You'll be one of the early founding members of our cross-functional engineering team comprised of product design, software engineering, marketing, and analytics.

  • You'll work with our head of product, CTO, head of engineering, head of design, and your awesome peers in our engineering team to envision new solutions to customer problems based on our high-level strategy.

  • World-class practitioners - our programs are application only and very selective. They attract top performers from the world's leading tech companies. Your job will be to study their challenges and opportunities to create an amazing product experience.


Here are some delightful bullet points that outline some things you'll be doing:

  • Contribute to the Reforge offering by understanding the mission and chip in with feedback/ideas on how to improve Reforge

  • Manage one or more engineering teams.

  • Work collaboratively with product thought leaders; help shape product strategy and ship impactful experiences for our members

  • Provide technical strategy and direction to your teams

  • Help engineers develop their long term careers, provide performance feedback, and conduct one-on-ones with your team to make sure they are thriving

  • Balance hands-on contribution and program management for products your team ships

  • Strong communication skills with engineers and non-technical colleagues, both written and verbal
