Join a mashup of energy enthusiasts and creative tech wizards who are taking the fight to climate change. Disrupt and reimagine the energy experience using modern technologies.

Arcadia is a technology company revolutionizing the energy industry. We make choosing clean energy easy for everyone, no matter where you live or who your utility provider is. Founded in 2015, Arcadia set out with one purpose that continues to drive us today: a 100% clean energy future.

As an Engineering Manager, you will directly contribute to democratizing access to clean energy by guiding the teams that are building the technology that makes it happen, and the user experiences that make it intuitive. You’ll focus heavily on maximizing the effectiveness of your team by growing individuals on the team and building scalable, world-class software. In doing so, you will unlock a more human relationship with energy; accelerating everyone’s agency to choose renewables, and hopefully stabilize our climate before it’s too late.

What we’re looking for:

We are seeking a thoughtful and driven Engineering Manager to grow, organize, and coach 5-7 engineers responsible for building mission-critical products & services. The right candidate will deeply commit to championing team members -- removing roadblocks, advocating for their needs, and enabling their personal/professional growth & development -- while leading them to continuously navigate complex engineering problems, architect scalable solutions, and deliver significant software into production. If you’re equally excited to have an impact on game-changing software that is expanding renewable energy access to millions of households across the country, as well as the lives and careers of the people who build it, we encourage you to apply.

Our core stack includes several Ruby on Rails apps, a GraphQL service layer, and a number of React clients. We also have a data pipeline that relies heavily on AWS Lambdas running Python. Our infrastructure is based on Kubernetes running on AWS.

This role is based in Washington, D.C., or New York, NY, and is an exceptional opportunity for someone who relishes the chance to engage with cutting-edge technology, influence how our team builds and stays relevant, and work in a fast-paced environment with engineers on a high-morale, tightly-knit team. Our engineering values are deeply ingrained in our culture-- you can read more about them here.

What you'll do:

  • Empower, guide, and maximize a team of mission-driven engineers to solve challenging problems in the energy industry by building cutting-edge technology
  • Collaborate with Engineering leadership and cross-functional partners (including Product, Design, Marketing) to establish roadmaps and strategy that help serve and grow the business
  • Represent engineering-driven considerations to ensure all stakeholder groups are aligned on company priorities, expectations, and contingencies
  • Contribute to technical development and discussions as necessary to ensure the team is building technology that scales and meets the business needs
  • Provide both ongoing support and mentorship to direct reports, strategically aligning their skills, interests, and career aspirations with business needs; defining, streamlining, and guiding the projects they work on; and both initiating and inviting conversations around performance, development, and morale
  • Deliver results in the fast-paced environment of a growing startup while always treating team members and colleagues with empathy & humanity

What will help you succeed:

Must-haves:

  • 2+ years of team lead or engineering management experience
  • Proven track record of effectively developing direct reports through continual feedback and goal-setting, and growing them through the ranks of an engineering organization
  • Advanced understanding of modern software development practices and methodologies, and the ability to roll up your sleeves and contribute when necessary
  • Experience directly working on or managing teams working on production systems and high-volume applications
  • Experience successfully navigating the relationship between Engineering, Product, and Design teams
  • Experience collaboration, mentoring, learning from other engineers, and treating colleagues with empathy and respect
  • Ability and internal drive to problem-solve, both creatively and pragmatically
  • Ability to scope, prioritize, and deliver on project commitments
  • Ability to learn new technologies quickly
  • Passion for our mission, sustainability, and drive a clean-energy future

  • Ability to weigh budget, speed, and other variables in buy/build/borrow decisions
