At Figment, our mission is to create an Internet that is truly decentralized where users can freely interact, share, collaborate, and exchange goods and services in a trustless environment. We offer staking, middleware, and application layer solutions for token holders and developers investing in and building on Web 3 technologies. Together, we can build a better Internet.
We are seeking an Engineering Manager to help lead, grow, and mentor a DevOps team. At Figment, DevOps is the backbone and mission-critical part of our organization.
We seek a natural leader who manages teams with a deep sense of empathy, ability to provide technical guidance to a geographically distributed team of high-performing engineers, and a proven track record of building high quality software systems and solutions, preferably at large scale and in a context of big data processing.
In this role you will have autonomy and the ability to build and lead a team using management best practices, ensuring proper resource allocation & prioritization, and supporting team chemistry.
If you enjoy building team teams providing solutions having real business impact, then this role may be a good fit for you. Ideal candidates are comfortable working in an unstructured environment, dealing with uncertainty, minimal direction, and working across a range of projects.
We seek to build diverse and inclusive teams, so this should also be a priority for you.
Figment is a remote-first, globally distributed company. Our culture is centered around honesty, professionalism and risk-taking in a high-growth environment.
This role is for candidates within North American timezones.
Figment fully expects to hire the best talent for a job, and let them have full autonomy and trust in being able to do that job to the best of their abilities with minimal management oversight. We also expect teammates to be able to help shape the team culture and working practices.
Your career development and professional growth is also a key cornerstone of how we grow people and invest in them, and you can expect active coaching and help on those aspects.
We do not expect you to be a blockchain expert. Some familiarity is definitely a bonus, but we will help you get up to speed where needed. You’ll only be limited by how much you want to learn about Web3 technologies.
