        Guiding managers through handling career development topics with their reports

        Maintaining healthy collaborative relationships within your team and setting a high bar for performance.

Why This Job Might Be For You:

        You care about technology, but you don’t care about it for its own sake. You’re not married to specific tools. You’re comfortable moving up and down the stack to solve problems.

        You care about your team. You learn together and you focus on the facts to drive decisions.

        You care about the customer. You won’t be happy if you’re blindly executing on specs.
