Engineering Manager

With over a million customers trusting PayJoy, it’s increasingly important that our apps and services operate with integrity and high availability while keeping our customers' data confidential.

In your role as part of PayJoy, you will have the opportunity to work on meaningful projects that immediately impact our customers, work alongside seasoned professionals and entrepreneurs, and contribute to a startup that is experiencing rapid growth. 

You will manage the team-building technologies that are crucial to PayJoy’s business: tools used for lending operations, loan servicing, and integrations. These are currently full-stack, web-based products used by PayJoy’s Customer Support and Operations Teams as well as external integration partners.

You will contribute to our engineering and product strategy, help craft the team’s mission, expand the team through hands-on hiring and ensure that our product users and ultimately, our customers have a great experience.

When your team succeeds, the impact on PayJoy’s business will be clear to see.  You’ll partner directly with other senior leaders throughout PayJoy to understand our market, our customers, and our external partners. 

The engineering manager role spans the technical and business domains.  You will be familiar enough with the codebase that you know what is easy and what is hard.  At times, you will also write code if you decide that your backlog requires it. You can dive deep into engineering issues with your team when needed, you have good technical judgment, and you’re able to identify great talent. 
You also know the company’s business; you can align engineering success and business success; you can evaluate a team and know what to add, and you are an effective communicator even across cultural and functional differences.
If this sounds interesting, we’d love to talk with you!
