Role Description

COVID Update: Even has begun to re-open its offices. Office use is available to anyone who the CDC has cleared to gather safely indoors without masks or social distancing. Employees may continue working from home indefinitely. Even is a Remote-Equal company. The experience of working 100% remotely feels the same as working from the office in all of the ways that matter: camaraderie, engagement, and opportunity.

About Even: More than half of American workers live paycheck-to-paycheck. Stuck in this cycle, they collectively lose over $120 billion each year on payday loans, bank overdrafts, and fees. We’re trying to fix that by building new financial services that make it easier to plan ahead, pay down debt, and save. And we’re doing it as a transparent, straightforward business that only profits when our members do. Learn more

The Role: At Even, we use employer data and services to power unique capabilities in our app. As Engineering Manager of Employer Platform, you will lead a team of engineers to build and maintain our interfaces with employers. You will partner with functions like customer success & sales to expand who we can integrate with, directly impacting our go-to-market possibilities. You'll also work with operations & other engineering teams, building strong internal APIs and tools to ensure high quality data.

What you'll do: - Build and manage a platform engineering team. You'll join the engineering leadership team to guide the development of services across web and mobile, as well as work with our recruiting team to bring in other talented engineers to your team and the broader engineering organization. - Bring technical experience. You have meaningful experience shipping non-trivial products & services and can guide through learned experiences. - Share technical expertise and chart career paths forward. You love to mentor other engineers and help them understand complex technical problems and concepts, as well as help your reports find meaningful paths of growth. - Own and drive projects forward. You and your team team will own projects from start to finish. As leader, you'll understand the impact (both process and business) of your technical decisions. You love to code and don’t want to be out of the weeds. - Build and maintain documentation. As a growing and remote organization, having the necessary docs are key to our success. - Drive high quality standards. You know what good looks like, and you push & inspire your team through metrics, accountability, and leading by example.

What you'll need: - 3-5+ years of engineering management experience. - Experience in API design, a drive to automate away repetitive tasks, and a knack for establishing urgency without burnout through clear prioritization. - Passion for your craft, people, and our mission. You value quality across code, communication, and culture. - Understanding of how to operate in the unknown. Even is a growing company that doesn’t have it all figured out just yet. You’ll be successful here if you thrive in environments where the directions aren’t laid out for you. - A desire to keep growing your skills and an ability to learn quickly; you never stop learning.

Tech We Use: Here at Even, we use Go to build our server. You don't need experience with Go, but interest always helps! We care more about your general engineering skill & background than knowledge of a particular language or tool.

What you'll get from us: - The chance to work on a serious problem that affects more than half the U.S. population. - A culture that gives you the time and space required to build great things. - Competitive compensation, equity, and healthcare packages. - 401(k) with 50% match from Even on up to 6% of your salary. - A $5,000 annual educational stipend to invest in your learning and development. - A $500 annual stipend to use towards personal financial advice. - A $100 monthly stipend for health and wellness expenses. - A 5-year exercise window on stock options after 2 years at Even. - A flexible vacation policy and a team that understands building a company is a marathon, not a sprint. - 3 months bonding leave for both birthing and non-birthing parents. An additional 1.5 months of fully paid leave for pregnancy disability. - A culture that gives you the autonomy you need to do great work, and the transparency you need to make good decisions.

Even is used by people of all backgrounds, and we believe the best products are built by teams that represent their users. We value unique contributions and actively welcome people of all backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to join us at Even. We are committed to working with and providing access and reasonable accommodation to applicants with mental and/or physical disabilities. If you think you may require an accommodation for any part of the recruitment process, please send a request to: All requests for accommodations are treated discreetly and confidentially, as practical and permitted by law.
