Hiya is revolutionizing the way people make and receive phone calls. We are one of the fastest growing mobile startups in the world. The phone dialer app has remained unchanged since smartphones launched over a decade ago. Hiya is changing this by working with mobile phone makers (like Samsung) and mobile carriers (like AT&T) to bring this innovation to more than 35 million monthly users in 196 countries. With offices in Seattle, London, and Budapest we have the backing from top investors in the US and Europe, and an exceptionall diverse and skilled team.
We are looking for an experienced hands-on Software Engineer Manager based in Seattle to help us architect, implement, grow the team, and maintain one of our new products. This product has 4M monthly users already and that’s just the MVP built by a small team of engineers. We need to take it to the next level.
You’ll be managing a team of six to eight engineers in Seattle, quite a few of those you’ll help us hire. You’ll also help us (re-)architect this product to better serve the users who will be sending us hundreds of millions of requests per month. In addition, you’ll work with other engineering teams at Hiya, some in Seattle and some in Budapest, to define and deliver shared components and services.
Initially, you’ll spend sixty percent of your time architecting and implementing features with other engineers, and as the team and your management responsibilities grow, there will be less hands on coding.
What we expect from you:
Collaborative team player with great communication skills.
Proven experience building scalable and distributed web services.
Providing mentorship, coaching, career development, and support to a diverse team of engineers.
Experience hiring exceptional talent in Seattle.
Hands-on coder leading a team by example.
Have shipped and managed cloud-based high-availability API services.
Experience coding in a functional language (extra points for Scala)
Experience with data storage (SQL & NoSQL), networking, APIs, queues, stream processing, caching, etc.
Extra points for experience with Redis, DynamoDb, ElasticSearch, Search Engines, Data analysis, Kubernetes/Docker.
A bias towards action, delivery, and continuous improvement.
At your best when working in a startup environment.
A degree in Computer Science or equivalent.
What you should expect from us:
Work at a supportive and fast-growing startup with a fantastic team.
Make an impact in the lives of tens of millions of consumers.
Many office perks and great company benefits.
Collaborate and learn from other great team members.
Support in developing your skills and accelerating your career
