What we’re looking for

  • 5+ years of experience in software engineering with at least 1 year of experience managing a team of product engineers
  • Proven ability to collaborate with product managers and designers to build plans, set expectations, and successfully deliver new products and features
  • Strong recruiting skills, with a track record of quickly scaling high-quality teams 
  • Experience navigating ambiguous high-growth, fast-paced product-driven environments, with a high-level of responsibility and autonomy
  • A high level of empathy our customers and a strong desire to deeply understand their needs

The base salary offered is dependent upon many factors including skills, experience, location, and education. The base pay range is subject to change and may be modified in the future. 

Additionally, this role is currently eligible to participate in GlossGenius’s equity plan as well as a range of health & wellbeing, retirement savings, and other benefits within our total rewards offering.
