Act as a role model to others on the team by exhibiting a strong work ethic and fostering a positive and inclusive environment.
As an Engineering Manager you are...
Experienced leading technical projects: You have collaborated with technical and non-technical team members to break up large projects into ordered, discrete tasks and working to ensure those tasks are successfully executed.
A strong communicator: You can distill complex technical ideas for a diverse set of stakeholders from developers to editors, product managers, and executives. You can write clear and concise documentation.
Adaptable: The idea of working on multiple projects of different sizes on different technology stacks excites you.
A critical thinker: You don't need to be told how to get from point A to point B and are up to the challenge of figuring how new features can elegantly fit into a modern web stack.
