Engineering Manager

19/06/23 6000 – 7000 USD/MONTH Remote

About the Company Our company specializes in building best-of-breed Shopify apps, with a strong focus on optimizing the performance of our clients’ Shopify stores. We are committed to delivering high-quality software, as evidenced by the outstanding reviews our apps have received. Our codebase is clean, thoroughly tested, and ready for further growth. We work with shop owners from around the world, providing fast and reliable products.

As a Hands-On Engineering Manager your time will be split between building products/providing
support vs overseeing the Engineering Team. We estimate you will spend roughly 75% of your
time doing engineering tasks and 25% managing.
You will be working on a variety of consumer facing products. The ideal candidate would have
experience with Vanilla JavaScript, React, PHP, Laravel, MySQL, HTML, CSS, Sass. Our backend
is built on top of Laravel, and supports multiple UI products. Our client admin tools are built
using React and Shopify Polaris (a React component library). Our app’s widgets/plugins are built
using vanilla JavaScript to ensure a minimal footprint, lower chance for conflicts with other
code, and optimal performance.
Our backend is built primarily using a TDD approach. While experience with TDD isn’t required,
you will need to have some experience with writing tests, an understanding of what TDD entails,
and willingness to use TDD when working on backend functionality.
On the management side, you will help determine and refine our hiring strategy, refine and
update our engineer and support onboarding materials, be responsible for training plans for
team members, oversee daily scrums, and provide code reviews for engineers, among other
responsibilities that will be determined as you are integrated into the company.
We are seeking a culture-setter, someone who seeks responsibility, is determined to help the
company grow, and motivates those around him/her

While experience with Test-Driven Development (TDD) is not mandatory, familiarity with writing tests and an understanding of TDD principles are expected. We primarily follow a TDD approach in our backend development.
