We’re involved in the entire product process, from conception to post-launch reflection. We have deep empathy for both our coworkers and our users, to understand how we can work better together to help others work better together.
The Orchestrate Area strives to enable customers to discover, build, and scale critical workflows. Some of the upcoming challenges include scaling workflows so that customers can bulk-manage changes across thousands of coworkers, developing "smart" feature recommendations that are contextual and timely, and building personal onboarding experiences based on customer use cases.
We are looking for a Staff Software Engineer Engineer to drive execution and technical strategy across multiple teams. As a Staff Software Engineer, you’ll provide technical leadership and mentorship to a group of full stack engineering teams, while working closely with your Engineering and Product Directors to craft an overall vision and strategy for this organization.
What you’ll achieve
- Provide technical leadership to 2+ product engineering teams, providing mentorship on topics like longer-term technical planning, design & architecture, operational excellence and efficiency, and prioritizing tech debt.
- Directly coach and mentor at least 2+ Team Tech Leads, striking the right balance between leading by example and explicit asking.
- Collaborate on strategic roadmap planning and sequencing, and prioritize technical investments as a technical partner to an Engineering Director and Product Director.
- Collaborate with front-line Engineering Managers on creating growth opportunities for their reports, solutions to address technical skill gaps, and providing technical feedback on their reports.
- Build strong cross-functional relationships with business partners (Solutions Engineering, User Operations, Customer Success, Product Marketing) and with key community developers. Yes, you’ll be talking to customers directly!
- You have 7+ years of experience working as a technical contributor in a full-stack environment, with experience as a technical leader over multiple engineering teams.
- You have experience working across a large codebase and product and a track record of successfully leading multiple complex, technical projects across multiple teams. You are experienced in shepherding a technical design from document to production.
- You are proactive about identifying opportunities for your team or the broader organization to improve and advocate or drive for those improvements.
- You have successfully scaled yourself by building out processes and systems that last beyond your direct intervention.
- You are experienced at mentoring and leveling up engineers at various experience levels.
- You deeply care about fostering collaboration and psychological safety among team members.
- You have strong communication skills for non-technical audiences. You can explain technical decisions and their implications clearly to customers and business partners.
