Engineering Manager: Mobile Apps Etsy
The Engineering Manager: Mobile Apps will lead a team in the development and implementation of large-scale mobile apps.
Etsy is seeking an Engineering Manager: Mobile Apps to join our Mobile Apps team. 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 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.
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!)
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)
You have a vision for what mobile at Etsy can be and how mobile can be used to grow Etsy?s buyer and seller audiences internationally.
You will be successful in this role if you:
Have experience working with teams building products for iOS or Android.
Understand the limits of individuals and recognize the advantages of building cohesive teams.
Have a 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 prior experience building and running consumer-facing web sites or apps.
If you're interested in joining the team at Etsy, please send a cover letter along with your resume telling us what inspires you about Etsy and why you think you are perfect for the team (resumes without a cover letter will not be considered). If you contribute to an open source project, write a blog, or practice another craft besides software engineering, that means something to us, we?d love to hear about it.
From our HQ in Brooklyn, NY, to our offices around the world, we make it possible for people everywhere to buy and sell unique goods. Community is in Etsy?s DNA, and being connected, a code we live by.
At Etsy, you can do the work you love, be yourself, and take fun seriously. Your teammates become teachers, sharing their skills at Etsy School. Competitive benefits, balanced working hours, and eco-friendly offices are engineered for human beings (not human doings). And everyone?s invited to break bread and make new friends at Eatsy, our locally-sourced communal lunch.
Etsy is the marketplace we make together.
