Engineering Manager, Platform Team New Relic
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED New Relic
Engineering Manager, Platform Team
Are you the ace engineering manager who will run our fast-growing Platform Team?
Two years ago, the Seattle development lab of New Relic didn't exist. Now, Seattle is the home of our Platform Team, who launched a spectacular strategic technology last spring to roaring success.
And we're just getting started. How would you like to take the team, the project, and the lab to the next level?
You really do need to be an ace manager for this with proven technical chops. Our engineers are particularly smart, creative, hard-working, and capable collaborators. They need leadership, not supervision. Managers here are mentors who lead by example and coach their teams. They continually improve the work environment to bring out the best in everyone. Our managers work hard to stay invisible. If you're a command-and-control person, this is not the right place for you. If you've been a software engineer yourself and you love helping other engineers excel, we might be the perfect place.
Management here is serious business. We have the best management-mentoring program in any start-up -- perhaps the best, period. New Relic has a strong team culture, so expect to receive, and contribute to, a collaborative, supportive environment. Working at New Relic, you'll have a rare opportunity to challenge yourself and propel your ability to lead to the next level, with the support and guidance of a talented and dedicated team.
Plus, the project is awesome. Platform blends all the cool things you can imagine: a consumer experience for acquiring plugins, an IDE for building them, outreach to a growing community of developers, open source, API, and deep technical integration into the rest of the New Relic experience.
You'll be a serious candidate if you have several years of experience as a sharp engineer, a track record of delivering socially complex projects, and a couple of years or more serving in a management or lead role. You must get the agile/SaaS lifecycle, incremental delivery, and continuous deployment. You're someone who acts with drive and urgency, yet always takes the time to listen and to do the right thing. You are constantly seeking new ways to explain, coach, teach, and bring out the best in others.
Tell us about your management philosophy in your cover letter and give examples of your role in delivering software projects with a team. And, of course, we want to hear why you might be particularly interested in New Relic.

More important than all of that: we provide challenging work, opportunities to learn, high quality teammates, a standard-setting product, and a company on the move.
We provide competitive compensation (including pre-IPO stock options) and big-company benefits (medical, dental, etc) -- all while maintaining the energy, agility, and fun of a start-up. We can help with relocation and are open to H1-B transfers.
