We're looking for a Front End Engineering Manager to lead our growing Front End engineering team at Zapier. Interested in helping build the tool that powers automation for millions of professionals? Then read on…
You are a skilled engineer. You've got a strong background working in our stack (React, ES6, Node.js, etc.) – even if you aren't a daily coder, you regularly exercise your coding muscles and try to be an asset on any technical context your team may need.
You are an effective team builder. This isn't your first rodeo. You know how to hire, train, and develop engineers from all backgrounds. You understand the benefits of building a diverse and inclusive engineering team. You may not have hired or managed hundreds of people before, but you have hired, trained, and managed at least a few engineers before.
You're adaptable. You've been in fast growing companies and know how to build, change, and adapt to the needs of a company as it grows.
You have excellent communication skills. You regularly work with engineers and other stakeholders from various disciplines, balancing engineering concerns, such as technical debt, with product concerns. Ideally, you find solutions that address both the team and user needs but if not, help build understanding around difficult decisions.
You can keep track of, prioritize, and lead multiple projects. We're a small team, and there's no shortage of things you could be doing in a day. You'll carve out time for functional projects and make sure they solve real problems the team faces – ideally making development even easier.
