  • Work with your engineers and Product Management partners to identify team processes that are not working and create experiments to iterate on improvements
  • Navigate career path planning and identify growth opportunities for engineers to take on projects tailored to skill level and interests
  • Recruit, hire, mentor, coach, and hold your engineers accountable to high standards
