\nManager, Product Engineering Team\n\nHi there!\n\nWe're looking for a Product Engineering Manager to lead our growing product engineering team at Zapier. Interested in helping build the tool that powers automation for millions of professionals? Then read on…\n\nWe know applying for and taking on a new job at any company requires a leap of faith. We want you to feel comfortable and excited to apply at Zapier. To help share a bit more about life at Zapier here are a few resources in addition to the job description that can give you an inside look at what life is like at Zapier. Hopefully, you'll take the leap of faith and apply.\n\n\n* Our Commitment to Applicants\n\n\n\n\n\n* Culture and Values at Zapier\n\n\n\n\n\n* Zapier Guide to Remote Work\n\n\n\n\n\n* Zapier Code of Conduct\n\n\n\n\n\n* Working on Diversity and Inclusivity\n\n\n\n\nEven though our job description may seem like we are looking for a specific candidate, the role inevitably ends up tailored to the individual who applies and joins. Regardless of how well you feel you fit our description, we encourage you to apply if:\n\nYou're motivated by building effective engineering teams and are happy to roll up your sleeves and dive into code when needed.\n\nAlso, we'll soon be hiring a Frontend Engineering Team Manager and Platform Engineering Team Manager, so if those are more interesting to you – keep your eyes peeled or maybe set up this Zap.\n\nAbout You\n\nYou are a skilled engineer. You've got a strong background working in some our stack (Python, Django, React, etc.) – even if you aren't a daily coder, you regularly exercise your coding muscles and try to be an asset on any technical context your team may need.\n\nYou are an effective team builder. This isn't your first rodeo. You know how to hire, train, and develop engineers from all backgrounds. You understand the benefits of building a diverse and inclusive engineering team. You may not have hired or managed hundreds of people before, but you have hired, trained, and managed at least one engineer before.\n\nYou're adaptable. You've been in fast-growing companies and know how to build, change, and adapt to the needs of a company as it grows.\n\nYou have excellent communication skills. You regularly work with engineers and other stakeholders from various disciplines, balancing engineering concerns, such as technical debt, with product concerns. Ideally, you find solutions that address both the team and user needs but if not, help build understanding around difficult decisions.\n\nYou can keep track of, prioritize, and lead multiple projects. We're a small team, and there's no shortage of things you could be doing in a day. You'll carve out time for functional projects and make sure they solve real problems the team faces – ideally making development even easier.\n\nThings You Might Do\n\nZapier is a startup, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. Here are some things you'll get a taste of:\n\n\n* Develop effective ways to communicate, monitor, and lead your team through weekly one-on-ones and team meetings.\n\n* Keep the leadership team informed on your team’s progress in ways that are easy and enjoyable to receive, like one-on-one's, update posts, and regular team hangouts.\n\n* Build rapport with each member of the Product Engineering Team and support them through coaching and mentorship to help level up their skills.\n\n* Participate in code reviews, learning and spreading technical knowledge throughout Zapier – moving knowledge to documentation where appropriate.\n\n* Occasionally dive into the code; fixing bugs, improving developer experience, smoothing edges – sometimes even spiking out small proofs of concept.\n\n* Collaborate across various disciplines (Product Managers, Designers, Researchers) to help set technical roadmaps that will achieve business goals through engineering best practices.\n\n* Actively recruit, onboard, and train new engineers at Zapier. This might involve tweaking the skills portions of interviews, or write better documentation.\n\n\n\n\nAs part of our All Hands Support initiative, help customers have the best experience with Zapier as possible.\n\nHow to Apply\n\nWe have a non-standard application process. To jump-start the process we ask a few questions we normally would ask at the start of an interview. This helps speed up the process and lets us get to know you a bit better right out of the gate. Please make sure to answer each question.\n\nComplete this form with answers to the questions below. Make sure each answer stands alone as we review question-by-question instead of applicant-by-applicant.\n\n* Tell us why you'd be a good fit for this role.\n\n* What do you think the fundamental purpose of a manager is?\n\n* What is your philosophy about management?\n\n* What do you think are some of the most common ways people fail at management?\n\n* How many people have you managed in the past? And what were your responsibilities managing them?\n\n* Tell us about the different types of engineers you've managed or worked with in the past. Which type best represents you?\n\n* Please share links to any public work (github, gitlab, personal website, etc.)\n\n* Do you miss doing individual contributor work as a manager?\n\n* What has been the most challenging problem you have faced as a manager and how did you solve it?\n\n* Optional: Share anonymously some demographic information about yourself to help us better track trends related to the backgrounds of candidates interested in working at Zapier in order for us to build a team that represents the users at Zapier and the broader world population.\n\n\n\nFinally, wait for us to reply. We reply to everyone, even if we don't seem like a good fit.\n\nApply Here\n\nZapier is an equal opportunity employer. We're excited to work with talented and empathetic people no matter their race, color, religion, national origin, sex, physical or mental disability, or age. Our code of conduct provides a beacon for the kind of company we strive to be and we celebrate our differences because those differences are what allow us to make a product that serves a global user base.
