Product Engineering Manager

 a year ago

We started Super to help maximize lives–both the lives of our customers and the lives of our employees– so that everyone can experience all that life has to offer. For our employees, our promise is that Super is more than just a job; it’s an opportunity to unlock one’s potential, where learning is celebrated and impact is realized.

We are more than a fast-paced, high-growth tech company; we care about our people and take career progression seriously. This is your career and our aim is to supercharge it through the people, the work, and the programs that fuel who we are.

About this team

Super engineering has 5 development focus areas: Superapp, fin-tech, travel, e-commerce, and infrastructure & tools.  The Superapp team focuses on building backend and frontend components and services to drive activation, engagement, and loyalty programs cross-vertical – hotels, e-commerce, and fin-tech. This role sits on the Superapp activation team with a mission to help users to get to their first incremental cross-sell. This includes improvements to navigation across different verticals, cross-vertical login, discoverability, system usability score, mobile app experience, and user referral program.

About this role

We are looking for an Engineering Manager to lead our Superapp activation full-stack engineering team. In this role you will directly oversee 3 full-time engineers (eventually scaling up to 5 engineers), and the team has 2 engineering interns. You will predominantly work with React on the frontend, and a combination of Python and Node microservices on the backend. Other technologies you’ll work with include Gitlab, AWS, Postgres, Redis, Datadog, Amplitude, and Snowflake. You will work closely with a Product Manager and Product Designer. You will report into a Director of Engineering.

About you

We’re looking for highly-motivated self-starters who share our excitement for growth and impact. The ideal candidate will be interested and able to implement and oversee a team of full-stack engineers (frontend, backend, databases) working with React, Python, and Node. In addition, the candidate is a strong communicator (both technical and non-technical topics), interested in continuous learning, and looking forward to working in a startup environment with an emphasis on delivering business value. The ideal candidate is interested in a 25:25:25:25 split between technical leadership : team management : people management : individual contributions initially, shifting to 30:30:30:10 over time. Finally, the ideal candidate is an empathetic people leader, is highly collaborative, is data-driven, is scrappy, and loves to ship impactful code with rapid iteration.


  • Oversee a full-stack team of up to 5 engineers (+2 eng interns). You will be accountable for the continued staffing of the team, including being a key contributor to hiring processes
  • Propel the business and engineering org forward by leading high-impact projects end-to-end in an iterative, data-driven, startup environment
  • Shape the technical roadmap for the team, contribute to product roadmap and OKR discussions, and drive the engineering agile processes for the team
  • Contribute to a culture of continuous improvement and growth, ensuring team members excel with oversight and mentorship, are working on projects at the intersection of interest, experience, and business impact, and have concrete opportunities for growth
  • Drive high release quality and cadence by completing code reviews, ensuring end-to-end tests are written, and sustainable yet pragmatic development practices are followed
  • Strategically contribute technically – write important design docs, tackle particularly intricate components/features or services, jumping in as an individual contributor when appropriate
  • Contribute to cross-team technical meetings and discussions, and opportunities to improve engineering productivity and processes

Preferred Experience

  • 4+ years software development experience, including 1+ years of either formal management or close mentoring of junior and intermediate software developers
  • Coding: Senior technical depth in at least one of Python or JS. Also, at least intermediate depth on frontend development using a modern frontend framework (ex. React/Vue/Angular)
  • Strong knowledge of modern web technologies, system design & architecture, and microservices
  • Been a technical lead for shipping major features/projects, and worked with multiple codebases
  • Been involved in hiring & interview processes
  • Experience working with Product Managers and Designers, in an agile setting

Nice to have

  • Working experience across a breadth of our infrastructure, languages and stacks (React, Python, Node, Gitlab, AWS, Docker, Postgres, Redis, Datadog, Amplitude, and Snowflake)
  • Formal engineering management experience
  • SQL / analytics know-how, and experienced with devops concepts
  • Experience in a startup environment
  • Worked closely with business stakeholders, and experience spearheading agile processes

We’ve got you covered

  • Competitive salary packages, equity options, great benefits from day one, wellness budgets, as well as personal and team-level development budgets
