Senior Engineering Managers at ezCater manage domains with a high degree of business or technical complexity. In the case of the Senior Engineering Manager for Menu Core Services, it’s both! As a key leader on our Platform Engineering team, you’ll have the opportunity and responsibility to set the direction of our core systems for years to come, focusing your attention both on the capabilities of our menu platform and on the leverage those systems can provide to our products and our business.

You’ll hire, lead, mentor, and grow a team responsible for Menus and Catalogs systems at ezCater, serving a wide variety of internal and external customers. You’ll develop strong partnerships with leaders in our product, engineering, and business teams, and you’ll play a key role in product and technical decision-making both in your scope of responsibility and outside of it.

What You'll Do:

  • Build, lead, and mentor a highly capable team of software engineers. You will be empowered to grow rising engineering leaders to become strong and high-performing managers.
  • Be a thought partner with the Directors of Engineering in all aspects of the business, pressure-testing ideas while bringing your own creativity to the conversations.
  • Lead cross-functional projects that may require multiple teams, staff engineers, and stakeholders.
  • Contribute to the overall success of the engineering manager cohort across the organization through leading by example, collaborating on best practices, and mentoring engineering managers.
  • Build, lead, and mentor an exceptional team of software engineers, leading conversations, and cultivating execution and decision-making; all while delighting our customers and propelling our team of engineers to execute projects.
  • Drive the execution of our vision by translating business requirements into technical solutions. Ensuring our products are robust and adhere to the engineering standards while meeting our goals.
  • Leverage your technical expertise and communication skills to collaborate with product managers and other engineering teams in the organization to influence our systems and roadmaps.
  • Operate with scale and speed, determining the ideal development lifecycle, technical design, and approach for new and existing solutions. Ensuring best practices for software development are followed while delivering high-quality work by fostering pragmatism and urgency.
  • Contribute technically: Brainstorm with engineers, design solutions, and review PRs.
  • Have fun building meaningful software with awesome people.

What You Have:

  • Creativity to think outside the norm while pressure testing multiple solutions for large-scale projects.
  • Ability to assess and grow highly specialized engineers and/or full stack and how that affects team dynamics.
  • A passion for building and growing high-performing teams, prior management experience, and a desire to be an impactful leader.
  • Proficiency in documenting processes and monitoring the performance metrics for our applications and systems.
  • Extensive full-stack web development experience. Ideally, from an eCommerce and/or SAAS setting. Working knowledge of modern server-side and client-side frameworks. Ruby, Rails, and React would be a huge plus.
  • Working knowledge of SQL and relational databases. Postgres? Even better.
  • Flexible growth mindset, you’re willing to do what it takes to adapt your team and power them for success.
  • Goal orientation and a record of success leading leaders and engineers.
  • Curiosity and a desire to build products that matter through continual learning of industry trends and best practices associated with technology and managing people.
  • A desire to collaborate with strong engineers and engineering leaders to continually improve a mature engineering team. A sharp mind, a soft heart, and a large funny bone.
