Engineering Manager, Insights

Heap’s mission is to power business decisions with truth. We’re building infrastructure to automatically capture customer interactions on web and mobile applications, make sense of them, and make them actionable for anyone. We want to enable everyone to understand their millionth customer as well as they understood their first.

For this role, we’re looking for an Engineering Manager to grow and develop our Insights engineering team. You’ll be responsible for technical strategy, execution, and delivery on a core part of our product experience used by thousands of customers. You’ll hire, coach, and develop a diverse team of engineers, and work cross-functionally with a variety of teams across the company to inform direction and roadmap.

On Insights, you’ll be responsible for the core analysis modules that enable Heap’s customers to understand and take action on their data. You’ll manage a full-stack team, spanning frontend UX and visualizations to the backend SQL query engine, working closely with the Data Science team to translate new analysis concepts into user-facing features. This is a fast-growing product area with a huge opportunity to impact the business and play a pivotal role in Heap’s success.

What you’ll do

  • Remotely manage a diverse group of 6-10 engineers ranging from junior to senior. Support their growth and development through continuous coaching and feedback.

  • Work closely with product management, design, and data science to translate new analysis concepts into shippable features.

  • As the lead of one of our most frontend-facing teams, help shape the future of our frontend platform and make it more extensible and robust.

  • Own execution and delivery on your eng team, and help the team balance new feature work with technical debt and platform investment.

  • Contribute to a fast-growing engineering organization and help us scale up processes and best practices across the entire company.

We’re a distributed team that operates mostly on US timezones. Because of the high degree of interaction with other teams, for this role we’re primarily looking for a manager working in the US or a US-adjacent time zone (including all of North and South America).

What we’re looking for

  • A track record of leading and coaching diverse teams of engineers (at least 2+ years managing a team of 5+, including remote engineers)

  • A solid engineering background that has kept pace with new technologies, even if it’s been a few years since you coded full time (at least 5+ years of total experience in technical roles)

  • Experience running team cadences in a fast-moving, Agile environment, and working cross-functionally with product management to set roadmap and direction

  • Full-stack experience, from helping teams build and test robust React frontends, to backend APIs and SQL querying. Experience working with Data Science teams and pipelines a plus.

  • A genuine commitment to building diverse teams, and promoting equity and inclusion on your team and throughout the organization
