We are looking for an Engineering Manager to focus on our Joist infrastructure. Joist, an EverCommerce solution group, is an end-to-end vertical software platform for small & medium-sized trades contractors. We have a simple mission: Make Contractors Heroes. Joist provides web and mobile applications for small business contractors to estimate, invoice, record, and process payments, and manage projects from anywhere. From humble beginnings, we're now helping over 1 million contractors across North America, the UK, and Australia, making us one of the largest trades platforms in the world and we have major growth planned!

You are deeply experienced in both managing other engineers and building software with an Agile mindset. You care deeply about diversity, growth, and enabling success in others. You will contribute to solutions from inception to deployment, and everything in between. The solutions you and your team build must not only work for Joist today, but also support rapid iteration and innovation as we grow. Your work is going to be nothing less than redefining the home renovation industry, and your tool belt is full of tools that assist with software delivery, team growth and development, and more.


Leadership You have the ability to guide a team by example. As a leader on our development team, you are able to instill the values of kindness, diversity, quality and ownership in the people around you and provide feedback on how to improve as a team.

Teamwork Many of the problems we encounter require insight from many parts of the business. Your ability to coordinate and communicate with your peers is essential to our success.

Architecture You have a strong understanding of the building blocks of a robust and scalable system. You are able to dissect business problems into well designed systems. You have the experience to know what to build and the discipline to know what not to.

CS Fundamentals You have an understanding of algorithms, data structures, design patterns and data storage technologies. You are able to select the right tool for the right job.

Delivery Focused Code on a laptop doesn’t solve problems. You know that a project is only done once it's delivered and validated. Residential construction is a large problem to tackle. You are inspired to complete a project because you know that 5 more problems are waiting to be tackled, and you do it all without sacrificing quality.

Passion Hard problems are not solved overnight. It takes a special kind of attitude and hunger to disrupt an entrenched industry. Your passion is what you share with every teammate at Joist. Passion for technology, passion for working as a team, passion for change, and passion for building an industry revolutionizing product.

Skills and Experience needed for success in this role:

  • 2+ years of experience leading other engineers as their direct manager

  • 5+ years of professional industry experience as a software developer working in agile teams, with experience in some of our backend technology stack: AWS, Docker, Ruby on Rails, Postgres, Elixir

  • A successful record of mentoring and growing other engineers during your years of experience

  • A proven ability to take ownership of software projects, from scoping and estimation all the way to being live in production

  • Experience and passion for Agile, DevOps and Lean approaches to delivering software and value for our customers

  • You know how to join and partner with Product Management to experiment, iterate, and ship fast for customers

  • The ability to communicate clearly and concisely about deeply technical topics in an easy-to-understand way

  • You hold strong opinions about how to build great software and products but are receptive to the views of others; you know when to be flexible and when to hold steady

  • You are an expert in agile software development processes

Bonus Qualities:

  • You have worked at other small to mid-sized companies that went through periods of growth and team scaling

  • Experience with Infrastructure as Code for use in cloud computing platforms such as AWS, Heroku or GCP

  • You have experience managing cross-functional teams that operate with “dev-run”

  • Experience working in cloud microservice architectures

  • Experience in RESTful API design

  • You hold a degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or in a similar field. While not a requirement, it helps to have a common baseline of understanding of CS principles when working with other technical people.
