Engineering Manager - Styling Engineering at Nordstrom
Job DescriptionNordstrom is looking for an Engineering Manager to join our Styling Engineering org. As an Engineering Manager in the Styling Engineering org, you will help create capabilities focused on customer styling. If you love thinking about how to manage people, process and projects while being an inclusive leader, then we’d love to speak with you.
The scope and accountability at this level is typically responsible for managing a team of 4-6 people while working closely with Program Management, Product Management and UX Design. Our engineering teams work across our entire stack – from cross-cutting user interface and back-end code to infrastructure. There are three pillars to the role: people, process, and projects.
People: As an Engineering Manager, your primary goal is to empower and grow your engineers. You will emphasize the importance of learning, urge others to build new skills, and provide opportunities for them to develop. Our Engineering Managers recognize the importance of forming a team with an appropriate and diverse mix of styles, perspectives and experiences. They champion the decisions of the team and operate in a way that builds a sense of belonging for everyone.
Process: As an Engineering Manager, you are responsible for ensuring your team can deliver with confidence. As an owner of the “how,” you will help set team, technology and process strategy to ensure alignment with present and possible future business needs.
Projects: As an Engineering Manager, you will take ownership of designs that span multiple people's work, breaking work into smaller tasks for more junior engineers to support. You will develop appropriate technology and business metrics/KPIs. You will guide the team’s technical roadmap over multiple product planning cycles year over year. Our Engineering Managers utilize metrics to make strategic decisions to shape future planning roadmaps.
