About Attentive: Attentive is a mobile messaging platform changing the way consumers interact with businesses. The company is one of the fastest growing startups in New York City & recently raised a $40 million Series B investment led by Sequoia in July 2019. We've seen 8x customer growth in just one year, & now work with 400+ of the most innovative brands like Sephora, Urban Outfitters, Coach, & Crate & Barrel. Attentive was founded in 2016 by the co-founders of TapCommerce, a mobile marketing platform that was acquired by Twitter in 2014.
Role Background: We're looking for a self-motivated, highly driven full-time Engineering Manager for our Core Messaging team. You will lead a very strong team of infrastructure focused engineers tasked with owning the core message sending & receiving functionality for the Attentive codebase. Currently capable of sending 10s of millions of messages per day & bursting to thousands per second, this team must continue to rapidly scale up our capabilities as our customer base grows. In addition the team will be responsible for expanding our messaging capabilities into new areas (FB, WhatsApp, international, push notifications, etc).
This is a hands-on role where you are expected to balance people management, cross-functional leadership, & coding. You should be comfortable letting your tech leads take true ownership of projects while keeping enough of an eye on things to make sure the train stays on the track. As the primary point of contact with the team, you will work with other engineering teams to asses their Core Messaging needs while planning your team roadmap.
