Do you enjoy crafting powerful UIs that provide a delightful customer experience? Does the notion of building a product that empowers users around the globe sound compelling? Do you lead by example, & have a passion for coaching & mentorship? If the answers are yes, come talk to us about our Appian Experience Tribe! 


Managers of Software Development provide technical leadership in a specific technology layer or area of the product & are responsible for the professional growth & development of engineers working in that layer. As an engineering manager, they provide direct 1-on-1 mentoring & coaching to a small group of junior software engineers to improve their skills in a specific technology layer while also handling general HR management responsibilities. Managers are servant/leaders who should enjoy helping groups succeed.  They spend roughly 75% of their time as a developer (technical design, writing code, code reviews, etc.) & 25% managing direct reports. If an MSD is also in the role of a Squad Coach, their time as a developer is expected to be reduced (to roughly 30%). The ideal candidate will want to cultivate & fuel a passion in their direct reports for developing beautiful, functional, & accessible UI components for the Appian platform.
