With thousands of brands and retailers across 30+ markets in North America, we are setting the industry standard for how cannabis businesses grow together. LeafLink processes more than $4.4 billion in wholesale cannabis orders annually.

Our team, backed by funding from leading VC's, including Founders Fund, Thrive Capital, Nosara Capital, and Lerer Hippeau is poised to define the cannabis supply chain through technology.  LeafLink was named one of Inc. 5000’s ‘Top 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies’, one of Built In NYC's 'Best Places to Work in 2021', as well as one of Fast Company's 'Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Enterprise for 2020', joining the ranks of Amazon, Slack, and VMWare - and we're just getting started!

What We’re Looking For

LeafLink is seeking an Engineering Manager to join our team who is passionate about building high-performing teams and products. Overseeing multiple cross-functional pods and products, this role will partner closely with our product teams to deliver features and new architecture to a growing platform of shopping, commerce, and seller tool services. This role will involve managing a team of talented engineers as well as have a hands-on, lasting impact on our platform architecture, new and existing service offerings, standards and processes within the department, and our company's growth and expansion roadmaps.

The role is flexible in terms of management vs hands-on development split, but candidates should expect to work in a wide variety of capacities within the department, ranging from providing technical leadership through overseeing architectural vision, implementation, and iteration. You will get to work with new and growing technologies and concepts such as containerized and serverless design patterns, Python, Node.js, Golang, Kubernetes, AWS managed services, third-party integrations, and service-oriented architectures.

Ideal candidates for this role possess the ability to organize, manage, and deliver complex projects not only from an engineering and architecture perspective but also by implementing and iterating on team processes that promote collaboration and general cohesiveness among team members. Additionally, candidates will be well placed if they enjoy finding, hiring, and growing strong technical talent and working to grow and foster a culture that’s both inclusive and values the diversity of its members. 

What You’ll Do
  • Mentor and manage a team of engineers, focusing on both their day-to-day responsibilities as members of the engineering department and also their career growth, interpersonal and leadership skills, and future-facing goals
  • Develop short and long term strategic goals to continue to push LeafLink’s technology offerings forward
  • Plan, lead, and deliver product and projects that focus on those efforts, partnering closely with product leaders and external stakeholders
  • Participate in and lead quarterly OKR planning and execution sessions with both your direct reports and your pod team members, working closely with department leadership to craft challenging-but-reachable goals for each
  • Run regular engineering-focused meetings and events to ensure alignment and knowledge transfer both intra-department and externally to the rest of the company
  • Interview and contribute to the growth of the engineering team, focusing on finding and then retaining candidates that will continue to elevate and diversify our ever-expanding set of in-house engineering talent
  • Set and drive process and architectural standards that reflect the unique complexities of LeafLink’s business model while also complementing existing and ongoing work within other areas of the department
  • Work closely with stakeholders to understand their needs and help craft solutions that move our various platforms forward
  • Take a data-driven approach to product development and iteration, and help continue to advocate and assist other departments in doing the same
  • Advocate for and deliver well-balanced solutions to technical issues as they arise based on a constantly-evolving product roadmap
  • Analyze and evaluate existing solutions within the company and help drive decisions on whether to extend or refactor as needed
Requirements
  • A strong leader with proven experience and passion for leading, growing, and mentoring teams of engineers
  • Experience working to expand and strengthen community outreach and other diversity-focused initiatives
  • Experience working in and advocating for agile environments
  • Experience managing engineering and project process, resourcing, timelines, and delivery efforts with cross-functional teams
  • Experience working in service-oriented, API-driven application tech stacks and working knowledge of the challenges and gotchas that can bring to the SDLC
  • Experience working within e-commerce, B2B, and their ancillary systems as well as their mobile counterparts
  • Experience working within environments that rely heavily on automation, CI, and CD concepts to rapidly deliver, measure, and iterate on products and features
  • Experience within containerized, serverless, and event-driven infrastructure, Kubernetes, document databases, and AWS
  • Exceptional critical thinking and analytical skills, possessing the ability to quickly understand and ideate on complex systems and their associated data
  • An active member of the open-source and New York tech community a plus
