    • Hold a (virtual) offsite for your team to align on working agreements, strengthen relationships, and articulate the team’s strategy, how it connects to MURAL’s business goals, and how it will translate into day-to-day roadmap items for the team
    • Work with your engineers and Product and Design partners to identify team processes that are not working and create experiments to iterate on improvements
    • Navigate career path planning and identify growth opportunities for engineers to take on projects tailored to skill level and interests
    • Recruit, hire, mentor, coach, and hold your engineers accountable to high standards
    • Actively manage customer escalations, interruptions, and partner expectations


    • Advocate for and celebrate the accomplishments of your engineers through our reviews and promotion recommendation process

    • Adopt an iterative and continuous planning approach to balance agility and predictability
    • Regularly set measurable stretch goals and challenge your team to reach new heights
    • You have 2+ years of experience directly managing high-performing software engineering teams as an Engineering Manager
