Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web.
We’re looking for an engineering manager to lead a team that enables 3rd party developers to create and distribute design shareables, templates and integrations that allow visual developers to easily design, launch and manage any website or webapp on Webflow. Third Party Developer Ecosystem is critical for Webflow’s success as a generational company.
About the role
- Location: San Francisco HQ, US Remote, or ON/BC, Canada
As an Engineering Manager, you’ll:
- Collaborate with cross-functional peers such as Product and Design to set goals and define business strategy
- Drive goal-setting with your team and hold them accountable for results
- Balance projects ranging from quick prototypes to large-scope feature development
- Exemplify Webflow’s Core Behaviors in the pursuit of our audacious two-fold mission to democratize software development and enable team members to lead meaningful and impactful lives
That said, these responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly. And this isn’t just a philosophical bent: we actually give you 4 hours a week (10% of the work week) to pursue passion projects related to Webflow.
You’ll thrive as an Engineering Manager if you:
- Have 2+ years experience managing and scaling product engineering teams in a growth environment
- You have hands-on experience in API design and development and are up-to-date on standard methodologies for modern frontend engineering and developer platforms.
- Possess a strong technical foundation in frontend & backend services, building complex web applications, and AWS/Cloud architecture
- Value accountability and will support your team in reaching their fullest potential
- Have experience managing agile teams to adhere to software delivery cycles
- Can empathetically deliver tough feedback with respect and kindness
If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that meeting just 50% of a role’s requirements puts you in the running.
At Webflow, we believe that our success will not only be defined by what we do — but by how and why we do it. So, here is the Webflow “why” and our “how”:
To empower everyone to create for the web — and lead impactful, fulfilling lives while we do it.
