About Company:

Company is an open-source, low code software that helps developers build applications quickly, usually within only hours. Since being introduced less than two years ago, Appsmith’s open source software has more than 10 million downloads, more than 18,000 stars (up 12x since 2021) on Github and is used at over 10,000 organizations across 150 countries. We are a global and fully remote organization, excited to welcome new teammates to our collaborative environment and high-performance culture.

Company has raised $51.5 mn in funding. Company Vision We believe every organization should have the ability to develop high performing internal applications quickly and cost-effectively. Every enterprise needs to create custom internal applications, spending between 10% to 40% of their engineering resources on them. Yet they often take a backseat to customer-facing applications because they are challenging, expensive and slow to build. Appsmith is already enabling software engineers to transform how they build internal apps, often building them 10 times faster with Appsmith. In the future we’re building, custom software developed for internal users will look and work no differently than the best out-of-the-box SAAS products. Internal users will demand great UX, great customer support, and great reliability from their in-house development teams because Appsmith has made it quick and painless for developers to build, deploy and maintain custom software. What do we value? Above all, we value a growth mindset. As a team of learners, we read, talk to people and listen to feedback constantly. We love working with people who have strong opinions, weakly held. Self starters and ambitious people form the backbone of our team. Do you want to work on bigger projects? Are you comfortable setting large goals and then accomplishing them? We value consistency and reliability. For example, sticking to committed deadlines, showing up on time etc. We believe that predictability makes teams run a lot smoother. It’s the little things that matter. Attention to detail shows that we empathize with our users, our colleagues and anyone else that we interact with. Are you a practical optimist? Our founding team strongly believes in a better future. We believe in playing our part to make that future a reality. What will you be doing? The history of software is the history of teams. And the history of teams is the history of leaders. As an Engineering Manager, you will lead a team(s) of engineers focused on solving challenging product problems. You will take charge of the team’s outcomes by building robust engineering processes and inculcating a culture of ownership and accountability within the team. As a leader you will play a key role in bridging communication between various functions such as engineering, product, design and QA. This will help your team release high quality features on-time.

Must Have Skills

● You should have prior experience in leading SaaS product teams in startups. This will help you ramp up and build context within the team easily.

● Teams with predictable schedules and clear directions tend to move faster. You should have managed projects before and be comfortable creating product and feature roadmaps.

● It takes an engineer to understand an engineer. You should (until recently) have been an active developer.

Communication is the key to success. You should be able to convey your ideas to engineers and non-engineers alike with ease and clarity.

● As a leader, it’s imperative that you understand what the team is working on. A strong grasp over the fundamentals of APIs, web backends and browser frameworks will hold you in good stead. Nice to Have Skills

● Past experience in building and scaling teams distributed across time zones and geographies is a bonus.

● Contributions in other open source communities will help you assimilate and enhance Appsmith’s global community.

● Have you worn a founder’s hat before? If yes, we’d love to hear all about your story.

Diversity and Inclusion: Company has dedicated to maintaining a diverse team and an inclusive work environment because our success depends on it. We welcome all people to apply for roles with company especially women and other disadvantaged populations and we appreciate non-traditional career paths. What is the recruitment process? As a small team, it’s imperative that all of us get to know each other before taking the leap. We want to ensure you succeed in your role within our team. Each conversation (video conference) with us will last about 60 mins. Typically the whole process takes between 2 - 10 business days depending on your and our schedules. Introductory call: This call will help us get to know you better. We want to understand your career aspirations and your story. We will also introduce Appsmith's vision and product to you. If you find our product vision interesting exciting, we will move to the next steps.

We will delve deeper into your professional background and talk about your technical prowess, past projects and leadership style.

Expect to discuss strategies for handling real-world scenarios that occur in teams.
