Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: USA

Category: Software Dev


As an Engineering Manager at Heap, you’ll lead teams building the future of analytics.

Heap has hard technical and people challenges all over, and we're looking for engineering managers who want to have a large business impact. Think: large-scale streaming ingestion, auto-capturing events on native mobile applications, novel ad hoc analytics query infrastructure, realtime data-out connections, and materializing very large datasets in warehouses.

 Engineering managers at Heap are people-focused, but expected to have a strong engineering background. Your particular area of expertise isn't too important: we have management needs across the entire stack.

 

What will you do?

Promote long-term growth of engineers. Our engineers are driven and very talented. We are serious about investing in them, and you will be responsible for ensuring they are growing along the axes they care about.

Create the long-term vision, mission, and success metrics for your teams by working with PM and your TLs.

Partner with TLs to ensure consistently high-quality execution.

Sell candidates and get them excited about joining the team.

We would like to talk to you if:

You have a track record of successfully leading an engineering team.

You communicate clearly both in writing and in person.

You’ve worked with product managers in the past and understand the product development process.

You're enthusiastic about managing a partially-remote engineering team.

Preference: you’ve successfully managed teams of 3 or larger. The role is flexible with regards to your seniority.

Bonus: you’ve observed engineering teams scale at least an order of magnitude.

Bonus: you’ve served as a Tech Lead before.

While the majority of our engineering team is in our SF HQ, we also have an NY office, are we happy to consider remote for managers with remote management experience. We cover relocation costs. We'd love to hear from you!

 

Heap stores critical customer data, and security is extremely important to us. All managers are expected to enforce rules and best practices to keep the company safe from breaches and incidents.   

People are what make Heap awesome. Regardless of age, education, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or any personal characteristics, we want everyone to feel welcome. We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive equal opportunity workplace everyone can call home. 

Heap has raised $40M in funding from NEA, Y Combinator, Menlo Ventures, SVAngel, Sam Altman, Garry Tan, Alexis Ohanian, Harj Taggar, Ram Shriram, and others. We work in SF and offer plenty of awesome benefits. We'd love to hear from you!

On a daily basis, you'll work on adding new functionality, improving existing code, and API endpoints while maintaining focus on testing and documentation.
    • We currently index millions of search and report events every day and at peak hours our API handles tens of thousands of transactions a minute. You will play a key role in evolving our services to handle 10X that.
    • You will own some of our large, upcoming challenges and collaborate with your team on all of these: building a streaming data reports pipeline, reworking how we index data and retrieve data to scale while controlling infrastructure costs, and significantly improving our search relevancy and customer-facing reporting capabilities. 
    • Our engineering team is over 40 people, more than half the company. As part of the search and data team you will be involved in the decisions made regarding implementation, testing, and backlog prioritization. You will collaborate with the rest of the engineering team through code, reviews. You will participate in making architectural discussion.
    • We work in using iterative software approach, communicate mostly via Slack and are committed to remote, agile development. When you are ready, you’ll create and send a pull request with tests and tag your team for review - using video and screen-sharing as needed. Your development builds can be easily tested on environments that closely match production. You’ll work autonomously for the most part and we trust you to get work done when/where you can be productive.
    • Your team performs engineering support when a question can’t be answered by our in-house support team and passes triage. We’ll get you up-to-speed with engineering support so you can help our customers and improve the product along the way.
    • Everything is secondary to the customer experience. We expect you to have a keen sense of how your code will impact the experience in terms of performance, security and usability.
    • You'll be working with product people that challenge you to get better every day. The founders are technical and committed to creating a magical experience for customers. You'll deploy work that moves the needle for businesses around the world.

  • Heroku / Salesforce (North America)

    Heroku is looking for a Developer Advocate with past experience in a developer-facing role, creating demos, writing blog posts, and building communities.

    Heroku’s Developer Advocacy team is small but scrappy and distributed around the U.S. We educate, inspire, and spark community among developers and also advocate internally for them.

    Do you consider yourself a software developer, but you are also excited about developer communities and helping other developers? If that sounds interesting to you, please read on.

    Heroku is looking for a Developer Advocate with past experience in a developer-facing role, creating demos, writing blog posts, and building communities. This role can be remote or you can work from a Salesforce office, but we would like you to be in a North American timezone. Also, this role will require 10-30% travel.


    > What is Heroku?

    Heroku’s mission is to create the fastest path for application developers to turn an idea into a production app of any scale. We want to remove every obstacle that slows down creative coders and let them focus on their customers’ experience while leaving everything else to our service. Today, Heroku powers over 7 million apps ranging from personal hobby apps to Internet top 100 apps. In aggregate, we serve more than 23 billion requests per day. Yet, it only takes minutes for a new developer to get the first app up and running, ready to serve customers.

    Heroku is one of the fastest growing businesses at Salesforce.

    Heroku’s Developer Advocacy team is small but scrappy and distributed around the U.S. We educate, inspire, and spark community among developers and also advocate internally for them. Sometimes this means working individually on some code or a demo or a conference talk. Other times, this means working closely with other Heroku teams like Product, Marketing, or Engineering.

    > Some Things You Might Work On

    • Interact (virtually and in-person) with developers

    • Write blog posts

    • Organize meetups

    • Create product demos

    • Record podcasts

    • Test new product features

    • Create conference talks

    • Attend events

    • Design and build a community program

    • Collect and share developer trends, desires, and feedback internally

    • Mentor other developers (writing and speaking)

    • Maybe most importantly, decide which of these are important and define how we work on them


    > Who you are


    CODE

    You're a developer first. As a coder, you can empathize with other developers, build credibility speaking to them, and even sit down with them in a debugging session.

    You have experience with at least one of Heroku’s supported languages: Node, Ruby, Java, PHP, Python, or Go and something else. Experience meaning not just an understanding of the syntax but also the community. That “something else” could be data, Apache Kafka, API design, web performance, mobile development, continuous delivery, microservices, distributed systems design/architecture, AI/ML, etc. Share what you're excited about with us.

    But you aren't satisfied calling yourself just a developer.

    COMMUNITY

    You also like engaging deeply with developer communities. Even better, you've helped build or grow a developer community. This means you've participated in or helped to organize meetups, conferences, or hackathons. Or it could mean that you've been an integral member of a popular open source project, or you've otherwise participated in a community in a meaningful way virtually. Ideally, more than one of these things.

    CONTENT

    Content is how the Developer Advocate communicates their ideas and the meaning behind their code. Whether it's writing a technical blog post, scripting out an engaging demo, crafting a clear GitHub repo README, speaking in a podcast, or presenting an idea or project in a conference talk, content allows us to share our message with and hear feedback from a larger audience.

    You should relish the thought of composing clean, clear prose almost as much as you do writing concise, elegant code and not be averse to speaking in front of a group of your peers.


    Other Desirable Characteristics or Background

    • Infectious energy

    • Excited about Heroku’s desire to provide simple, intuitive tools to developers

    • Experience at a company with a developer-focused product

    • Comfortable (as much as one can be) with public speaking

    • Comfortable speaking with customers
