Virtual Back End Software Engineering Manager in Boston

Posted 14 days ago

Back End Engineering Manager, Transport
Boston, MA
Indigo has a number of open roles for software engineers to build the transportation platform we use for moving grain after purchase on the marketplace. Engineering managers work with product managers, UX designers, and engineering teams to model trucking workflows, designing interfaces based on design mockups, and resourcing teams to build exceptional user experiences.
We look for a track record of the following:
Experience designing, implementing, and shipping live API code to customers (not necessarily related to logistics or shipping)
Experience managing teams of 4 or more software engineers through 1-1s, feedback, coaching, and delegation
Having built and staffed the wrong system enough times to avoid the common pitfalls, whether building something personally or advising others
Willingness to debug problems across the stack, such as networking issues, performance problems, or memory leaks

You might be a good fit if you:
Have empathy for being a back end engineer and are not afraid to code if needed - if your boss could do your job, you're more likely to be happy at work
Have successfully run a back end engineering team from architecture through release, maintenance, and support
Are self-directed and enjoy building server-side applications, as well as figuring out the most important problem to work on
Own problems end-to-end, and are willing to pick up whatever knowledge you're missing to get the job done
Are detail-oriented, and like to get the system working but know when to cut corners versus getting it exactly right
Are interested in coaching, mentoring, and serving a team of engineers
Enjoy collaborating across multiple disciplines, including product and design
Know how to communicate in a remote-first environment
Have worked with server-side and/or mobile languages like JavaScript (Node), Python, Java, Kotlin, Objective-C, or Swift in the past
Believe in the model of servant leadership and extreme ownership

In this role, you will work on a team with a mix of web and mobile developers, as well as product managers and UX designers towards a common goal.
