Role Description

At Cypress, we’re on a mission to build an essential testing platform that makes automated testing delightful and effective. Cypress provides better, faster, and more reliable testing for anything that runs in a browser. Hundreds of thousands of developers and QA professionals use Cypress.io to write better code faster and release with confidence.

Cypress is currently used in over 90 countries by hundreds of thousands of developers across more than 30,000 organizations. Cypress has over 1,800 customers in more than 58 countries across 45 industries and includes marquee names like Atlassian, Crunchbase, GitHub, PayPal, and Slack.

The company was founded in 2015 and has raised $55M in capital to date, including a $40M Series B financing in November 2020, led by OpenView Partners, with participation from Bessemer Venture Partners, Battery Ventures, Sapphire Ventures and Stripes.co.

As a leader of the Cloud team, you'll be responsible for managing the team that builds a product that developers don’t just love, but trust to be a reliable part of their mission critical development and delivery workflows. You’ll engage externally with the community to be their voice and partner internally with cross functional teams to shape our product strategy and execution plans. Most importantly, you’ll be the player-coach leading a growing team of talented software engineers and will be at the heart of the business’ top line growth.

This role reports to the VP of Engineering.

Responsibilities

Your responsibilities will span technical strategy, release planning, product delivery, recruitment and team development.

Work cross-functionally with product, design, developer experience, infrastructure, go to market and other engineering teams to craft the product’s strategic direction. Translate strategic plans into agile, iterative releases with a balanced approach of pragmatism and ambition. Own the full development lifecycle of the E2E Test Runner with accountability for team plans, deliverables and results. Partner with the CTO to be a flagbearer for the technical vision that supports and enables the E2E Test Runner’s growth and maturity. Provide strong architectural and technical leadership to the team by staying connected to the details, auditing frequently and knowing when to roll up your sleeves to dive deep. Mentor and develop a strong team of engineers to help them achieve a high degree of excellence and impact. Challenge engineers with ambitious projects & coach them with nuanced feedback to further their professional development and serve as a catalyst for them to achieve their career goals. Lead recruitment efforts for the team hiring top talent from diverse backgrounds. Create a healthy work environment that’s both supportive and challenging. Contribute to engineering-wide initiatives as part of the engineering management team.

Requirements 2+ years experience managing software developers (including hiring, onboarding and professional development for team members). 5+ years of engineering experience shipping high-quality production-grade products. Ability to recruit, mentor, and retain great engineers in a distributed setting. Broad people management skill set to craft development frameworks for engineers, constructively addressing roadblocks and underperformance. Demonstrable experience of collaborating effectively with other engineering leaders, product managers, and business stakeholders to manage expectations and deliver impactful outcomes. Strong understanding of how to gather and leverage data/feedback to improve the product experience and drive growth. Technical expertise to understand complex technical problems facing web application developers. Capability to communicate and discuss complex topics with technical and non-technical audiences. Hands-on leadership style with willingness to be the “Glue” and contribute in a variety of ways - Architecture, Code reviews, Releases, Community support, Troubleshooting, Documentation etc. Strong grasp of testing fundamentals and best practices. Innate curiosity, and a desire to learn and teach. Past experience as a Scrum master is a plus. Exceptional verbal and written communication skills. Comfort with dynamic startup environments where change is constant and there is a need to be largely self-guided on complex problems. Technologies we use and expect proficiency in JavaScript (Native events, lower-level browser APIs, DOM, Node.js) Babel, Webpack and Typescript React

About Cypress

Web development has advanced in leaps and bounds in the last decade, but front-end testing has not. Testing sucks. It’s the part that every developer dreads.

It’s often harder to write a passing test than an actual feature.

We want to spend our time building cool things, and we need tools that match how we build modern applications.

Therefore we built a revolutionary new testing tool from the ground up. We have created a product that we love and actually use ourselves.

Our team is highly experienced and passionate about solving problems. We’re lucky enough to have some of the best minds in the industry.

Being open source, Cypress is evolving faster and better than if we worked on it alone.

Now developers can ship their software faster and more consistently, with confidence.

We believe testing needs a lot of love, and we are here to foster a tool, a service, and a community that can teach and benefit everyone.

Company Culture

It’s a marathon, not a sprint — we value being thoughtful, deliberate and intentional over sloppy and fast. We recognize this means we will make mistakes to move quickly but with that we want to fail fast and recalibrate. Our objectives are the bigger picture and not short term goals.

Autonomy & Ownership — we hire adults to do adult jobs, which means we strongly interview candidates and if we bring them here, we trust them, explicitly to do their job.

Candid & Respectful Collaboration — We embody directness and transparency from the first phone conversation with candidates to an employee's last day at the company. We believe that people can handle direct feedback and it has and will continue to create a culture of trust and respect.
