Backend Engineer Manager
Clubhouse | Anywhere
Collaborative and effective project management software
Posted Jul 9, 2019

Clubhouse was built by software engineers with the goal of making project management software less painful, more collaborative, and help software development teams do their best work. The platform combines a simple, modern UI with enterprise-grade tools, allowing technology companies to plan and manage their projects effectively, visualize progress across the organization, and define deadlines and milestones based upon data and predictive modeling.

What originally started as a Hack Day project has grown into a product that is used by more than 1,500 companies across the globe...and we have big plans to continue our growth. We currently have 35 employees worldwide, an HQ in New York City, and we're backed by some of the best investors in tech.

Clubhouse's engineering team is a diverse mix of individuals with experience at large and small companies and with a range of technical skill. We're looking for an Engineering Manager who will join up and lead a team of infrastructure engineers. This role will report to our VP of Engineering and will be responsible for team management, as well as technical work. (Read: you'll write and commit code to our codebase.) As a Manager, you'll also play a meaningful role in recruiting and growing the Clubhouse team.

As an Engineering Manager you will:

  • Lead, mentor, coach, motivate, and manage a team of software engineers with varying levels of experience
  • Help build Clubhouse! As a senior member of the team, you'll be expected to scope, lead and execute on impactful engineering projects
  • Lead system design for our infrastructure and establish teams or projects to implement and improve our systems
  • Work to make your team more effective by eliminating dependencies; ensuring projects are adequately staffed; aligning on expectations and deadlines with other teams; and advocating for team members, as appropriate
  • Collaborate with other teams across the business to plan and execute on strategic initiatives

What you need:

  • Previous experience as a people manager. Ideally, this experience will include managing a distributed team and individuals with varying levels of experience
  • Significant experience as an engineer, preferably working across the technology stack and on projects related to scaling and improving back-end systems and architecture
  • Our infrastructure is written in Clojure; you'll need to have worked in this or a similar language in at least one previous role
  • A "lead-by-example" management style. (We are severely allergic to micro-managers)
  • A commitment to growing and developing your team
  • Strong data-driven prioritization skills and the ability to plan for short and long term

What we offer

  • In addition to a competitive salary and benefits, we're offering a meaningful equity stake in the company.
  • You'll be working on a product built specifically for software companies, with the aim of improving the lives of its users. We want you to help guide the product, not just build it for us.
  • You will be part of a small, professional and fast-moving team. Our work day is not broken up by meetings. Our codebase is small and well-tested. We contribute to the open source movement.

If this sounds like you, please apply below or email heather.morris@clubhouse.io and tell us about yourself. Our interview process will include a mix of pair-programming, whiteboarding, and face-to-face discussions.

Clubhouse is an equal opportunity employer and we value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
