Engineering Manager

| Chicago
The Engineers at Reverb take creative initiative, help set their own priorities, and come up with new ways to grow the business. Our team members take pride in crafting great software, but take even more pride in product ownership and beyond. While autonomy and ownership are held in high regard at Reverb, we are looking for passionate people managers to coach our next generation of leaders. We care deeply about fostering an environment that promotes learning and development, and you’ll play an instrumental role in implementing different tactics, strategies, and practices to grow our engineers as professionals and provide them with the right challenges to keep them engaged and motivated. As a company that values feedback, we are looking for people who excel at both giving and receiving feedback in a way that encourages dialogue and inspires teams to succeed.
To complement your people skills, you’re also confident in your knowledge and understanding of software development and technologies. We believe in a team-oriented approach that encourages managers to be actively involved in the engineering process: effectively leading technical discussions, helping to resolve technical disagreements, presenting and evaluating engineering trade-offs, and rolling up your sleeves to get your hands in the code, if the occasion calls for it. 
Responsibilities:
  • Mentor and manage team members through regular 1-on-1s and continuous feedback to enhance performance and encourage career growth.
  • Be an advocate and clear the road for your team by identifying and removing obstacles.
  • Ensure that Reverb standard engineering practices are followed and help define practices where there may be a gap.
  • Develop and improve communication channels between teams, Product, and other engineers
  • Collaborate with the Product team to define goals and objectives and work with your team to ensure goals are being met.
Requirements:
  • Previous experience leading and/or building a strong engineering team via hiring, developing, and motivating talent.
  • Deep expertise in web technologies with a track record of overseeing technical design and completing projects with high quality.
  • Comfortable operating at leadership level, as well as the team level - contributing to the code base when needed.
  • Able to guide teams to iteratively ship using feature flags and frequent merges to master.
  • Proven track record of motivating teams towards delivering business results in a fast paced, agile environment.
  • Experience in related domains within e-commerce is highly desirable. Prefer experience in both front (React or similar) and back-end (Ruby/Go/Node) technologies.
What you'll get:
  • Competitive salary and stock options in a high growth company.
  • No-bureaucracy environment where ownership and initiative is valued, and where everyone talks to customers.
  • Health insurance and a healthy work environment-- no 80 hour weeks.
  • 401k with 4% match.
  • Flexible vacation and sick days.
  • A MacBook, monitor, keyboard, standing desk and mouse of your choice. 
  • Discounts on music gear.

What are Reverb.com Perks + Benefits

Reverb.com Benefits Overview

Not many people can say that they keep a bass guitar next to their desk for an impromptu jam session or that they’ve sung along as their CTO belted out Rage Against the Machine at their annual holiday party, but that’s just a day in the life of a Reverb team member. The team stays motivated through weekly all-company meetings, where several team members give TED-style talks on everything from Taekwondo to improv comedy. Another motivator? The fact that all employees have ownership in the company via stock option plans.

Every two weeks, employees learn from music gear experts from inside and outside of the organization through sessions ranging from “How to Set up Your Amp Without Blowing it Up” to “DJ Basics 101” and each month, several employees are recognized via the “Reverb Badass” prize drawing. Of course, there’s always tons of music, whether at our desks, seeping through the doors of our video room, or at a monthly happy hour — and it’s not uncommon to see a rock star roaming the halls.

Other perks we love? Monthly free lunches, daily healthy snacks, unlimited vacation, and birthday cake. Reverb’s flexible hours and vacation policy also make it an ideal workplace, particularly for musicians who might need to leave early for a gig or take off a few weeks for a European tour. Above all else, employees love working at Reverb.com because the company is making an impact: Reverb is making the world a more musical place by making it easy to buy and sell music gear.
