Data Engineering Manager
6 days ago
As a manager of engineers, you’ll be responsible for understanding technical projects, ensuring high quality of work, reasonable delivery timelines, motivating a team, providing career growth opportunities, keeping tabs on performance (both rewarding high performers and taking corrective action for low performers) and understanding non-engineering needs/requirements, among other things. Day-to-day, you’ll be keeping engaged with your team (through 1:1s, evaluating code and pull requests, reviewing design proposals, etc.) and driving longer-term initiatives (e.g. changes to a team’s staff, new on-call rotations, quarterly performance reviews, hiring plans, etc.). Additionally, you’ll need to clearly and effectively communicate status of work upwards and be responsible for implementing and supporting larger, team-wide, department-wide or company-wide initiatives. Both your direct reports and your manager should trust you for support, autonomous execution and timely/accurate feedback.
