Robinhood is looking for an engineering manager for the Discovery Products team. The Discovery Products team aims to deliver a unique, engaging experience that empowers our customers to take the next step in their financial journey. The team consists of iOS, Android, Web, and Backend engineers that own products like Search, Newsfeed, and Lists. This team will partner with our Data team to pioneer recommendation and personalization within Robinhood’s products.

Your day-to-day will involve:

  • You’ll develop inclusive teams in which people are empowered to do the best work of their careers.
  • You’ll mentor and grow engineers while keeping them engaged and focused on the product and company vision.

  • You are not expected to deliver code, but you should possess enough technical experience in building customer-facing products to recognize the important moments your team faces and give meaningful advice.
  • You are very organized. With many people doing many things in a fast-moving company, strong organizational skills—both for yourself and for the team—will be required.
  • You possess exceptional written and verbal communication skills.
  • You are able to weigh several and often conflicting constraints and make rapid choices in a fast-moving and quickly-growing company.
  • You love helping engineers develop new skills and advance in their careers. You don’t shy away from performance conversations and you recognize the relationship between constructive feedback and career growth.
  • You have a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering or related field, or equivalent training, fellowship, or work experience.

Bonus points:

  • You may have delivered ranking and personalization consumer products.
  • You may have used the technologies in our stack, such as Python, Postgres, and Kafka.
