Engineering Manager

Chicago, IL; Remote

The Financial Services division at SpotOn sits at the intersection of moving money and software engineering. All of SpotOn’s merchant- or customer-facing products that enable commerce — points-of-sale, online ordering, and invoicing, to name a few — use the software built by teams in Financial Services. The teams’ immediate clients are the product engineering teams at SpotOn; their chief products are APIs, SDKs, and documentation that product engineers use daily.

As an Engineering Manager in Financial Services, you will help teams deliver systems that process payments of all types, link payment and other financial data from different sources, and protect sensitive payment card data.

In broad terms, you will develop and execute a management program that:

  • keeps your teams focused and engaged;
  • maintains a regular release cadence and product backlog;
  • upholds a standard of timely and lossless communication; and builds the trust of the individual contributors on your teams.

On a daily basis you will:

  • work with peers in Product, QA, and other Engineering departments;
  • coach and mentor team members;
  • cautiously drive adoption of new technologies and processes;
  • preserve our engineering values of quality, scalability, and maintainability;
  • “see around corners” — identify blind spots and prioritize work across teams;
  • work with international teams to ensure successful product development and delivery; and own the overall architecture and systems engineering for your products.

Some qualifications you might possess:

  • exceptional communication and organizational skills;
  • experience recruiting for and building software engineering teams;
  • the ability to inspire and motivate team members;
  • a strong technical background in software engineering and architecture, and experience with modern programming languages and frameworks;
  • 10+ years of software development experience; and
  • 2+ years of experience managing software teams (as a Team Lead or a Manager) or similar experience as an individual contributor.

The tech stack in Financial Services:

  • Python
  • Kotlin on Android
  • PostgreSQL
  • Kafka
  • Kubernetes
  • AWS
