The Tock Engineering Team is looking for a hands-on Engineering Manager to participate in all aspects of software development while providing technical leadership to a team of software engineers. You'll help us build the next generation restaurant ticketing system, based on the tried and true (and proven) system deployed at world-class restaurants such as Alinea, Next, The French Laundry, and more. The ideal candidate has both technical and leadership experience and isn't afraid to jump in and lead by example. Our team is pretty small, and undergoing exponential growth, so there's a great opportunity for you to make a difference.
You will report directly to the Director of Engineering and will be located in Chicago, Illinois.
