We are looking for team members who love product-building, want to work hard at a mission-oriented startup, and will collaborate with us in shaping the culture of a growing team.

The role

Do you love to build great technology and great teams? Watershed is working to scale a world-class engineering team, and we’re hiring for an experienced engineering manager to help lead this work. You will join a team of peer engineering managers and technical leads to define the culture and practice of engineering at Watershed.

We admire engineering managers who have a track-record as engineers, and have grown as a technical leader focusing on people and product. Your job is to empower each engineer on the team to do the best work of their career-to-date.

As one of the early managers in a fast growing company, you’re setting culture not just for engineering but for Watershed as a whole. You will represent Watershed to interested candidates, decide whom to hire, and guide them in doing their best work at Watershed. You, along with the rest of Watershed’s leadership and people teams, are responsible for building a diverse, inclusive, and hard-working organization. We are excited to work on this together!

Our engineering org is scaling and we need a first line engineering manager to grow their teams and drive backend data and product development for our Carbon Footprint Platform. Footprint Platform produces carbon footprints that are complete, correct, and actionable, and standardizes the way customers and other Watershed teams access, slice, and filter them. You will work hand in hand with our Data Science, Climate Science, Product Engineering, Product Management and Operations teams.

We are looking for:

  • 5-7 years of overall software development experience
  • 2-3 years of engineering team management experience
  • Have grown and managed teams of 5-10
  • Have a strong technical background in backend, data product engineering

This position will require to be onsite in our San Francisco HQ


What’s your approach to remote work?

Watershed is hiring team members on all US and EU time zones, and we’re committed to growing a long-term distributed team. We have hub offices in San Francisco, New York and London, and remote team members from Oregon to New Jersey to Ireland. There may be certain jobs that need to be in San Francisco / New York / London or certain locations, and will be specifically noted in the job description or in conversations.

What’s the interview process like?

It starts the same for every candidate: getting to know the team members through 1 to 2 conversations about Watershed, your experience, and your interests. Next steps can vary by role, but usual next steps are a skill or experience screen (e.g. a coding interview for an engineer, a portfolio review for a designer, deeper experience call for other roles) which leads to a (usually virtual) onsite interview after that if the screens go well. We prioritize transparency and lack of surprise throughout the process.
