Software Engineering Manager, Mandrill


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.

Mandrill, a transactional email platform built by Mailchimp, is a powerful delivery service that can be used for personalized, one-to-one e-commerce emails, and automated transactional emails like password resets, order confirmations, and welcome messages.

We’re looking for an Engineering Manager to join our ranks. You can expect to lead a team focused on scaling and improving the Mandrill platform across the stack, developing new and existing features, as well as building out a rich and robust front-end customer experience for Mandrill. You'll mentor and grow individual contributors, collaborate with others to optimize our development process, and lead a multi-discipline product development team. 

We’re excited to be adding to our teams in our Mailchimp Oakland office. This is an opportunity to contribute to forming a strong culture in a growing satellite office. You should be comfortable with distributed teams (as you’ll work with many folks in other locations), and also excited about building a strong, inclusive environment for current workers and everyone who joins after you.

We'd love to hear from you if:

  • You are passionate about career growth and self-development of our engineers.
  • You have prior experience leading engineering teams.
  • You have experience driving technical projects, prioritizing work, identifying dependencies, facilitating technical decision and team discussions.
  • You have a consistent record of running successful high-functioning, sustainable teams.
  • You can work independently while also putting an emphasis on coaching and mentorship of those around you.
  • You are passionate about building and delivering great features for customers.
  • Embrace and demonstrate our values: humility, creativity, and independence.

What you'll do:

  • You will manage a team of 5-7 engineers working on multi-functional product teams.
  • You will lead initiatives in collaboration with leadership in Engineering, Product, Marketing, QA, and Operations.
  • You will design and implement effective and efficient processes to support a collaborative environment for the team.
  • You will help scope, estimate, and prioritize work.
  • You will grow the engineering team by engaging in hiring and onboarding new engineers.
