In this role, you’ll be hands-on, participating in all aspects of software development while providing technical leadership to a team of software engineers. You’ll be helping us build the next generation restaurant ticketing system, based on the tried and true (and proven) system deployed at world-class restaurants such as Alinea, Next, The French Laundry, and more. The ideal candidate has both technical and leadership experience and isn’t afraid to jump in the trenches and lead by example. Our team is pretty small, and undergoing exponential growth, so there’s a great opportunity for you to make a difference.

All Tock employees are working remotely at this time. We are closely monitoring the status of COVID-19 as we continue our work to build a return-to-work plan that ensures a safe return to our offices and provides flexibility for our employees.

The engineering manager position can be located in Chicago or work remote from anywhere in the USA.

What we’re looking for

  • At least 10 years of experience writing software
  • At least 5 years of hands-on technical leadership and people management experience
  • Understand all parts of a modern web-based application stack from Frontend, Backend to Production
  • A self-motivated individual who works well with little direction
  • Enjoys being part of a team that works and learns together
  • Has excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Prefers to experiment and use data to drive decision making
  • Loves making and building things as part of a growing team

What you’ll do

  • Manage a team of Software Engineers, including task planning and the occasional code review.
  • Share knowledge with team members via a mentoring relationship, reviewing code, giving technical talks, or as a consultant on projects.
  • Contribute to the adoption of strong software architecture, development of best practices, and new technologies. Be a leader within your team and the organization.
  • Build next-generation web applications that are fast and responsive.
  • Be able to build a feature or enhancement, starting with engineering design taking it all the way to production.
  • Work closely with Product Management to ensure we’re building great products.
  • Demonstrate problem solving and technical innovation capable of “rolling-up sleeves” and “getting hands dirty”.
