Manager, Software Engineering



Software Engineering
Waltham, MA, USA
Posted on Thursday, August 24, 2023

As a Manager, you will be a key driver in building features and platform stability into Markforged’s cloud-based 3D printing solution. You will be responsible for entire feature sets and the people delivering them: decomposition of requirements, hands-on implementation, cross-team coordination, and the career arc of a team of strong engineers. You will have a growth mindset, accelerating engineers’ career progression and hiring more team members.

This is a player/coach role. Markforged strongly values individuals who use, understand, and love our product and want to see their efforts actively being used by their customers. The ideal candidate will have a proven track record of hands-on experience in managing and maturing teams and with a “ship often” mindset.

What will you own?

  • Manage and grow a team of 3-7 experienced engineers responsible for building full feature sets
  • Drive technical decisions and be accountable for the delivery of solutions on initiatives they own
  • Work with engineers across the company to build new features at a large scale
  • Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes
  • Plan for the growth of Markforged's infrastructure
  • Work directly with the Product team to own and manage their own team’s roadmap
  • Gain experience using the latest generation of 3D printers and assist our team as we explore new ways to integrate machine features into the product
  • Comfortability commuting to our Waltham, MA HQ 2+ days/week

Important Note:
Although we list out what we generally look for, we are very likely missing other attributes and skills that you have that could make you a great fit, but are not currently listed. Research has shown this especially applies to women and other marginalized groups, who tend to apply if they check 100% of every box, versus men who apply if they hit roughly 60%. The point we’re getting at, it doesn’t hurt to take a chance and apply!

What you have:

  • 1+ year experience in Engineering Management
  • 5+ years experience in leading the design, execution, and shipment of high-quality features with strong Computer Science fundamentals
  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or equivalent
  • Proven experience delivering under an Agile/Scrum/Kanban methodology
  • Experience with contemporary web development frameworks (Angular, React/ Redux, Node.js, etc.)
  • Experience with cloud systems such as AWS or Azure
  • Knowledge of performance optimization, parallelization, and distributed systems
  • Experience building APIs, Services, and/or Scaling Systems
  • Significant Experience with Schema Design and Query Optimization with SQL
  • Excellent command of Javascript or TypeScript
  • Have excellent verbal & written English communication
  • Know your way around a UNIX shell

Bonus Points:

  • Proficiency in writing Node applications and scaling them to support thousands of users
  • Can design and implement tooling and automation for clustering, scaling, monitoring, and alerting
  • Experience with web-based visualization frameworks (Canvas, D3, Three.js, WebGL, and more)
