Job Vacancy Founding Engineering Manager Rippling

Company: Rippling

Job description: About The Role

We are building the next frontier in the Rippling product suite and we are looking for a hands-on engineering leader who can simultaneously build a product while also growing the team. This role will be based out of the US and will involve working with multiple Rippling product and platform teams as well as different business teams as we attempt to build the next industry defining product out of Rippling. The role will involve significant product and engineering ownership and will get to build for and solve some of the most exciting problems in the industry. As a requirement for the role, you will need to be a self-starter with an ability to cut through team boundaries to build what is needed. If you enjoy complex problem statements and have an ability to come up with solutions from first principles, and enjoy being equal parts hands on and equal parts managerial, then this is the role for you.

Who You Are

  • You want to be part of a team of the most talented, forward-thinking engineers in the industry
  • You care about product ownership and solving problems for our customers
  • You’re passionate about being in a product-focused environment where everyone cares deeply about customer impact
  • You enjoy being hands-on in technical architecture and reviews (we’ll even expect you to roll up your sleeves and write code when appropriate), but you also have good judgment about when to step back and delegate.

What You’ll Do:

  • Lead a team of passionate software engineers that prides itself on ownership and impact
  • Set up and maintain processes that empower the team to move quickly but confidently
  • Be hands-on in technical architecture and reviews
  • Have a holistic view across engineering and product, and drive engineering and product strategy
  • Wear a product manager hat when needed


  • 8+ years of engineering or engineering management experience
  • Experience scaling products and teams in a hypergrowth phase
  • Proven track record of taking initiative and leading projects
