Software Engineering Manager, Mobile
Mailchimp is a leading marketing platform for small business. We empower millions of customers around the world to build their brands and grow their companies with a suite of marketing automation, multichannel campaign, CRM, and analytics tools.
Our mobile engineering team builds Mailchimp iOS and Android apps as part of our all-in-one marketing platform. We are hiring an Engineering Manager to lead a team of Android, iOS and backend engineers and to manage mobile apps delivery. The ideal candidate will be focused on enabling a team of engineers to do their best work. You will work closely with cross functional teams to identify and refine opportunities for solving mobile customer needs. You will have a strong technical aptitude to provide valuable direction and insight, but you will prefer enabling team members, rather than creating the solutions yourself.
What you’ll do:
- Lead and grow a high performing, diverse team of 5-7 Mobile engineers on product teams:
- Provide 1:1 coaching and mentoring to engineers. Communicate effectively to peer managers and members of leadership.
- Cultivate healthy channels for communication, review, feedback, and decision making. Facilitate open and honest dialog within the team, drawing on the broad experiences and diverse perspectives of team members. Lean on Senior and above level engineers to make technical decisions.
- Maintain a sense of camaraderie, cooperation, and collaboration among team members. Support and encourage those who face challenging situations.
- Align groups of people along shared goals and establish flexible systems for ensuring accountability. Support employees in their skill development in ways that meet both strategic organizational goals and their individual objectives.
- Recognize when it's necessary to talk through difficult topics and deliver clear, candid, and actionable feedback. Coordinate healthy discussions and work to establish consent when consensus is unattainable.
- Cultivate and solicit honest feedback about your own performance. Apply criticism and mistakes as an opportunity to learn without assigning blame or entrenching regret.
- Foster a collaborative environment with product managers, designers, marketing and others to support and implement mobile requirements
- Promote continuous improvement of engineering practices including code, architecture, platform automations, release and maintenances
