ENGINEERING MANAGER: MOBILE APPS
As Etsy's Mobile team grows, we are looking for a technical manager to guide our native apps team?providing vision and direction for planning, building, and maintaining large-scale mobile apps across multiple native platforms.
About the Mobile Apps Team
The Mobile Apps team plays a key role in extending the Etsy marketplace to new platforms and markets?connecting buyers and sellers from anywhere in the world, on any device. This is a tight-knit, passionate group, set on enhancing the relationship between buyers and sellers via mobile devices. Working alongside Etsy's quickly moving web team, we are adopting a fast-release process, running A/B tests and prototypes, and seeking ways to increase contributions from our web team to our native app platforms.
About the Job
Engineering managers at Etsy play a small part in the hands-on process of building software, but a very large part in building a team and orchestrating the work of individual members. You'll lead the day-to-day work of the Mobile Apps team, playing multiple roles:
Manager for project, sprint, and milestone planning
Creator of focus and inspiration
Builder of careers and individual development
Maintainer of happiness
Getter of answers
Facilitator of decisions
Social coordinator (from time to time)
This is a management-track position. The primary focus of this role is building a team and facilitating their ability to ship. Contributing production-facing code is extremely low on the responsibility list. (If you want to spend your day writing code, we have other awesome opportunities for that!)
Solid experience working within the iOS and Android SDKs.
Understands the limits of individuals and recognizes the advantages of building cohesive teams.
Keen awareness of how all of the pieces fit together?at both the architectural level in how high-quality software is built and the product level where the end result has to make sense.
Have published apps to the App Store and/or Play Store.
Well-versed in client/server architectures, web services, and authentication.
Prior experience building and running web sites and consumer-facing products.
Demonstrated experience managing technical teams.
A strong perspective on how to develop native software within an organization optimized for Continuous Delivery (as we are on the web).
A vision for what mobile at Etsy can be, and how mobile can be used to grow Etsy?s buyer and seller audiences internationally.
Etsy is the marketplace we make together. We have 25 million members in 200 countries. In 2012, our sellers grossed more than $895 million in sales. Our mission is to reimagine commerce to build a more fulfilling and lasting world.
Our offices are like this http://www.avc.com/avc/2010/09/the-office-matters.html and this http://www.officesnapshots.com/2010/10/11/etsy-offices/.
