Role Description

Your Mission

As an Engineer Manager on our team, you'll be working closely with the whole company to bring features from ideation to implementation. Your participation will have significant impact on our company roadmap, and you'll be able to see the outsized impact that your work has on our revenue.

In this role you will:

  • Champion engineering excellence, culture, velocity, and processes - Establish metrics for regular assessment/improvement

  • Drive great execution and work with the team to set clear goals and deliver against them

  • Be a Player-Coach to develop and grow engineers on the team as well as participate in large technical decisions

  • Recruit, grow and enable an incredible team of driven engineers who have high expectations around transparency, impact, and learning

About FOSSA

We're building infrastructure to help engineering teams understand and manage their licensing dependencies and security vulnerabilities.

Company Culture

Our team is human. We recognize that even the best people make mistakes, and we deliberately foster a culture of psychological safety. We act in good faith, and we trust that our teammates act in good faith. We are open, transparent, and honest about all things. Internally, we talk openly about our financials, the state of our business, and our business and engineering decisions. We collaborate closely on hard engineering tasks. When we make mistakes or miss estimates, we own up to our actions and work together to become better engineers and teammates. We improve our team rather than blaming our team members.

Our team is scrappy. We don't let perfect be the enemy of done. We focus on iterating with customer feedback rather than getting everything right the first time. We prefer prototypes over speculation. We experiment with engineering and product strategies to help us build the best possible product. We experiment with our culture and processes to help us move as quickly and efficiently as we can.

Our team is deliberate. We use data and metrics to focus our engineering efforts on the areas of greatest impact. We make well thought-out trade-offs between delivery time, technical debt, and risk. We think hard about when to be customer-driven and when to follow our roadmap. We optimize for engineering impact on revenue. We build our engineering culture intentionally to help us meet these goals.
