How We Work:

We employ an Agile/Scrum methodology to provide reliable software in a predictable way. We push code to production and improve speed of delivery without compromising quality.

We will support you in this role by providing:

  • Monthly all-managers meetings and roundtables to share knowledge and learn from peers

  • A guaranteed week dedicated to learning each year

What You’ll Do:

  • Hire and mentor a team of software engineers

  • Give constructive feedback to help your direct reports grow in their professional careers

  • Improve software delivery and operational processes

  • Work with product owners, project managers and other partners to ensure team’s deliveries

  • Lead a team who is building essential systems or user-facing products that are core to the mission of the New York Times

You Have:

  • 2+ years of Engineering Management experience, prior software development experience and an interest in becoming a manager of engineers

  • An interest in promoting an inclusive team culture where engineers of diverse backgrounds can grow

  • Experience building and running products or systems in a production environment

  • A willingness and desire to build teams that others will learn from

Current Open Roles:

  • Data Engineering Manager: Lead two teams responsible for the technology, strategy and direction of our experimentation and targeting platforms as part of the NYT Data Mission.

  • Games Engineering Manager: Lead the team that helps people discover and enjoy The New York Time’s suite of unique and wonderful games.

This role may require limited on-call hours. An on-call schedule will be determined when you join, taking into account team size and other variables.
