Job Description

Arcade’s mission is to empower the Product Led Growth Economy. We aspire to support the future generation of founders and products by raising the bar for product excellence, and in turn providing economic freedom to builders.

We want to pioneer the concept of Demo Driven Development by giving users the visibility into why, how, and where users get value from their products.

Culturally, we are a team of ex Atlassians, AngelList, and Shopify teammates — we believe in empowering the end user, and unifying companies around the needs of the end user. We believe that we have the potential to change how software companies work.

About the role

As Arcade’s first Engineering Manager, you’ll be responsible for implementing best practices in order to build a great and fast-paced engineering culture. You’ll partner with the team to identify high-impact initiatives, prioritize technical projects, and manage execution to accomplish our goals. This role reports directly to Rich Manalang, the CTO and will partner closely with Caroline Clark, founder and CEO.

To date, we’ve been shipping fast: check out our changelog. Since January 2022, we’ve shipped a new Teams product, a new way to capture content with our Chrome extension, a way to export our content as GIFs and MP4s, and loads of other improvements and bug fixes. We have a lot of complex initiatives and ambitious product goals and need help delivering what our customers need.

Today we are 8 people in total — and half of the team is engineering. We’d like to add at least three additional engineers (including an Engineering Manager).

What you’ll do

  • Build out a world-class engineering team and culture: You will design a rigorous engineering process and foster collaborative working relationships.

  • Recruit, develop, and manage a team: Build a team of diverse, high-performing engineers. This includes sourcing strong engineering talent, building effective interview processes, weekly 1:1s with directs, own career development, and creating stretch goals and performance discussions/processes.

  • Design a great product release process: Work with our CTO to design and manage a product release process that informs existing users of new value in the product and attracts new customers.

  • Own longer-term technical projects: Contribute to attaining and maintaining SOC2 and GDPR certification, as well as managing regular pen testing and tabletop exercises.

Who you are

  • Has a strong coaching mentality: Seek to uplevel the team with best practices in engineering, and grow everyone to a new level.
  • Are ruthless about prioritizing how to spend your time in a way that aligns with Arcade’s goals
  • Not afraid to get into the weeds with engineers — this is not an IC role, and it is not expected for you to ship code, but we also expect you can balance a 10k feet and in the weeds perspective.

Benefits

Competitive salary and meaningful equity Unlimited PTO and sick days 401k, and top tier Health, Dental and Vision insurance $500 a month remote work stipend Remote first and meeting light culture Biannual company retreats Latest productivity software such as Notion, Linear and Superhuman A team that values diversity and inclusion
