Travis CI is looking for an engineering manager to join our engineering team. Engineering managers help our developers stay focused, organize their work, and keep track of progress on project and company goals.
The main goal of an engineering manager is a healthy and effective team. This involves developing and implementing software development processes and frameworks with the team, facilitating team communication, and supporting developers’ professional growth.
We are looking for candidates with 4+ years of experience of engineering management or equivalent experience. Experience with remote and widely distributed teams is preferred. We welcome and encourage people from diverse backgrounds to apply.
