Senior Engineering Manager at Expanse
Atlanta, GA, US

Company Overview

Expanse, a San Francisco-based company, provides IT and security teams with complete visibility of the assets and risks on their global Internet Edge. This enables our customers, Fortune 1000 companies and the US government, to quickly and efficiently eliminate these risks. Through technology and service expertise, we surface and help remediate Internet Edge risks to prevent large breaches and successful attacks.

Position Summary

We are looking for a Senior Engineering Manager to build and scale our first technical team in Atlanta. As part of this role, you will recruit and mentor a team of engineers to create technically-sophisticated, high-quality products that run on our SaaS platform. You’ll also craft software development processes and own product development end-to-end, including quality, delivery, and monitoring.

As an engineering manager at Expanse, we want you to build a productive work environment for your team. Ensuring that resources are balanced appropriately and projects support the goals of our business will be a meaningful part of your role.

Let's try to describe this in code (extra points if you can spot the logical flaw; double extra points if you can fix it):

while (true) {
    while (team.capacity() <= roadmap.required()) {
        var candidate = recruiting.find();
        if (candidate.interview() > HIGH_BAR) {


At Expanse we believe that to be successful in any position you need three things: responsibility, accountability, and authority. We guarantee you'll get all three of these working with us in the Engineering team. If you're up for a challenge, we'd love to hear from you.
