Engineering Manager

Shiftboard is looking for an experienced technical manager to join our team. We love creating and extending back-end systems that support our Software as a Service platform for shift-based workforce scheduling and management, as well as extending our API and building integrations to other systems that extend our capabilities, ranging from IVR platforms to payroll systems to custom volunteer management systems.

You will be leading a growing team working on enhancing our product by adding new features that will drive our continued growth. This team provides back-end infrastructure, business logic, and APIs that are used by our front-end and mobile developers as well as directly by our customers and integration partners. You will be recommending and implementing the technology to achieve our product goals.

We are a multi-language shop that strives to use the right tools for the job at hand. We are currently using Perl, Python, and Node.js. As we continue our transition to a service-oriented architecture we are considering the deployment of Go, Rust, and others to ensure we are using the right tools and best practices available. We are not looking for a jack-of-all-trades to work in every language under the sun, but we're also not looking to consolidate on a single stack and become a ______ shop.

If you're looking to lead talented developers and QAEs, hire talented people, and help your team achieve their fullest potential and (eventually) walk away from Shiftboard better employees and people than they were when they joined; then this is the job for you.


  • 2+ years of professional technical management experience
  • 5+ years of professional development experience
  • Passion for building teams and developing employees
  • Experience evaluating technologies and services and determining potential benefits and applications
  • Experience utilizing cloud-based platforms and services to build large-scale systems
  • Mastery of two or more server-side languages
  • Broad data background, including proficiency in both SQL and NoSQL architectures. Graph database experience a plus.
  • Desire to be part of a team and work with other smart engineers, product managers, marketers, and salespeople.
  • Independent, self-motivated, and an avid technologist

Engineering Culture

  • We could never give back as much as we've received from the open source community, but we try.
  • We practice iterative development.
  • We hire smart people and empower them to make a difference.
  • We occasionally make mistakes but we learn from them rather than being paralyzed by them.
  • We believe in hammers for nails and screwdrivers for screws. Find the right tool and use it.
  • We learn. Then we cement that knowledge by teaching what we've learned to others.

What We Offer

  • Competitive Salary
  • Ownership Opportunity: Employee Stock Option Program
  • Healthcare: Medical/Dental/Vision Benefits
  • 401(k)
  • Commuter Perks: Puget Sound Transit Pass (Orca)
  • Fast-paced, rapid career growth opportunity
