About the role

Now more than ever, creative solutions are needed to help all Americans to better save and invest their money. Income inequality is rising and 1 in 4 Americans have $0 saved for retirement. Lendtable is at the center of this universe leading a new path forward to help American workers get the most out of their paycheck and employee benefits. With workers leaving billions of dollars in free money on the table from benefits like 401(k) matching, Lendtable helps employees take advantage of their retirement benefits. We are venture-backed by Y Combinator, Valor Equity Partners, Softbank, and heavy hitters like the former COO of Venmo and the President of Impossible Foods.

We are looking for an engineering manager that is comfortable taking a high degree of ownership of our engineering team's direction and management. Beyond a strong management, engineering, data, and product background, a successful candidate will have experience successfully working on unstructured problems, building scalable engineering frameworks for engineering teams, adaptability to changing roadmaps, and experience hiring, interviewing, and recruiting engineers.

Responsibilities

  • Ensure there is a clear shared vision for the engineering team and a roadmap on how to get there
  • Manage the day-to-day workload of engineers alongside product managers
  • Partner with design and product management to implement new features and product enhancements
  • Provide feedback and guidance on engineering architecture choices
  • Coach engineers in their technical and professional development
  • Collaborate closely with recruiting and other engineering managers to expand the team, including sourcing candidates, interviewing candidates, and onboarding new employees

Qualifications

  • Familiarity with modern programming languages (i.e. JavaScript, React, Node)
  • 5+ years of software engineering experience at startups or tech companies
  • 2+ years of engineering management experience at startups or tech companies
  • Strong analytical skills, with excellent problem-solving abilities
  • Willing and able to dive into the code yourself if necessary
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Must be willing to work onsite in our San Francisco, CA office

Nice-to-haves

  • Working knowledge of the saving/investing/lending/fintech space
  • Experience at high-growth, venture-backed startups or top tier technology companies

We have a team culture that encourages innovation and is inclusive of all backgrounds. We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer and 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. We are looking for someone that is self-motivated, approaches complex business questions with data and curiosity, is strong at identifying the root cause of problems, rather than just superficial trends.
