Job Description

About Zenefits

At Zenefits, our mission is to level the playing field for the other 99.7%— the underserved small and mid-size businesses that fuel our economy. These businesses face challenges disproportionate to their size and resources. That’s why we provide an intuitive, mobile, all-in-one People Operations ("POPs") platform specifically built for small businesses and their employees.

You will lead a team of engineers working to deliver our customers powerful tools that are easy to use, including the ability to self-serve functions that previously required assistance from our sales, support, and professional services teams. You'll be exposed to open-source technologies like Django, Python, Ember.js, React, and MySQL, and use them to solve complex issues such as manage distributed real world transactions, query over large data sets that encode various dimensions of date/time, management of complex business rules, and publication of data change notification events across the system to maintain data consistency.

  • Responsible for growing and developing an incredible team of talented and motivated engineers with high expectations around individual ownership and impact
  • Partner with our product management team and teams across the company to drive experimentation and incremental improvements
  • Foster a healthy and collaborative culture that embodies Zenefits values

  • Set direction for the team, anticipate strategic challenges via long-term planning
  • Highly collaborative with Product Management to plan, deliver and service features
  • Partner with recruiting to build a highly effective team
  • Communicate across teams and functions and drive engineering initiatives
  • Coach and mentor team members for their career growth

About you:

  • 10 years of professional software development experience
  • 3 years of managing high performance engineering teams
  • Growth mindset - motivated by experimentation, moving metrics and driving concrete business outcomes while delivering an outstanding user experience
  • Exceptional coding skills using a web development language, Python preferred
  • Shipped several large scale projects with multiple dependencies across teams
  • Able to communicate and discuss complex topics with technical and non-technical audiences
