The Team:

To date, we’ve already administered hundreds of millions of skills tests in over a dozen countries. We are looking for an experienced engineering manager with excellent communication skills and a passion for delivering high-performing software that impacts millions of users.

Our products are unique in that they are used heavily by employers, job seekers, and other teams within the company.

To make this happen, we need another engineering leader who shares our energy and enthusiasm.
