Are you a passionate, energetic, and technology enthusiast eager to work at a rapid pace with the flexibility to work across our suite of technologies? Are you are a problem solver; someone who enjoys debugging code, resolving issues, and creating solutions for common problems? Do you get a little obsessed with the details?

We are looking for a Senior Engineering Manager to write the next chapter in our Merchant Engineering. As an Engineering Leader, You will be responsible for handling the Supply Increase portfolio of product/ services within Merchant Engineering. This encompasses the core of our Self Service tools: Campaign Builder and Merchant Inbound Acquisition.

You will be responsible for scoping, architectural design, working with other technology teams, and running the iterative rollout of features.
