Engineering Manager

| Greater NYC Area

At AlphaSights, we search through more than 500 million professionals working in the world today to find the small handful of experts qualified to answer our clients needs. They use these insights to drive amazing progress within their organisations. Our mission is to provide access to dispersed, hidden, and underutilized knowledge.

We’ve made amazing progress working in this new space, but there is still an incredible amount of work to do. We’ve only just scratched the surface on how we can apply technology to this problem.

AlphaSights' level 1 Engineering Managers are technical team leaders early in their management experience. They are still honing their management skills with the support of more senior technical leadership, but excel at unlocking their team’s potential for high quality delivery. They manage both the technical and the people side of their teams; being both a career mentor as well as a technical mentor for their developers. They spend a majority of their time ensuring the technical excellence of their team, unblocking their team for maximum delivery, and communicating the team’s needs and progress to the rest of the organization. As an engineering manager you are expected to be able to write and optimize code, as well as ensure that your developers can do the same. You'll work closely with a variety of people in the business to arrive at the best solution, immediately see the impact of your work, and get feedback directly from users.

We are seeking engineering managers looking to grow their experience and expertise, and experienced engineering leaders that are looking to expand their career into technical management. In either case, you should be skilled as an individual contributor as well as interested in running (and building) technical teams and holding them accountable to an incredibly high standard. You should be comfortable working across multiple technical languages, be excited to learn new technologies, and experienced providing technical mentorship to your teams.

You will:

- Manage a team (or subset of a team depending on experience level) of software engineers, including task planning and code reviews

- Technically manage (and typically build) large areas of our product and service ecosystem

- Work with Product Owners to flesh out business requirements and ensure that the team is solving the right problems to help the business

- Ensure that the team adheres to high standards and practices sustainable engineering

- Help your team grow from both a technical and career perspective.

- Follow an agile methodology for rapid, nimble delivery.

You might be a fit if you:

- Have at least 4 years of professional development experience, and have served as a technical lead (or manager) for at least a year.

- Are proficient in at least 2 of the following languages: Java, Python, Ruby. All 3 is a plus.

- Enjoy mentoring other team members, including code reviews and tech talks

- Can balance deep work with cross team collaboration

- Enjoy writing code in a variety of languages

- Constantly learn from and mentor other engineers

Don't worry if your experience or background doesn't match all of these areas, we believe a broad spectrum of experience provides great perspective on solving problems in new and innovative ways and we’d love to hear from you.

You might lead teams that:

- Build tools to schedule multi-party communication with heavy constraints

- Automate the detection and mitigation of risk in real-time

- Tackle the challenges associated with Information Retrieval including building recommendation engines, auto-completion, and data categorization

- Improve our internal and client facing user interfaces

- Improve and evolve our core infrastructure to continue to reduce developer friction for deployment

- Optimize and scaling our overall platform architecture

Who you would work with:

- You would join a dynamic, multinational, and diverse team who enjoy solving interesting problems in a collaborative environment

- We have self-taught engineers as well as graduates from top Computer Science and Engineering schools

- Your co-workers will include motivated recent graduates as well as experienced industry leaders from companies such as Google and Amazon

An Insider's view of AlphaSights

What are some social events your company does?

The Software Engineering team celebrates our successes with monthly team events, such as team dinners, "Beat the Bomb", Sofar Sounds concerts, drinks, etc. We also have an annual team-wide international off-site to bond with our colleagues across the globe. Last year we all met in Lisbon for a long weekend of fun activities.

Manor Lev-Tov

Director of Data Science

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The majority of our users are internal, so we enjoy working closely with many different teams to understand their needs and ideas. We have direct access to feedback and insights that drive our success and encourage us to get creative and try new things.

Leanne Lyons

Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

Our team loves learning from each other whether it’s through paired programming, going to/giving tech talks, or sharing the latest tech on Slack. We facilitate our engineers growth by providing a conference and learning budget, active mentoring, and enabling our devs to spend 10% of their time on sandbox days pursuing passion projects.

Kevin Lester

Vice President of Software Engineering

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Innovation often means allowing for failure, so we maintain a culture of openness to ideas, no matter how far-fetched. Our team reserves a "Sandbox Day" every iteration, giving time to experiment with new technology and implement new features. Engineering is a mix of discipline and creativity, and Sandbox Days bring out the best of both.

Heath Hohwald

Chief Technology Officer

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The agency that people have to make their own mark on the company stands out to me. At AlphaSights, you define what you want to work on and what you think will be impactful at an earlier stage in your career. This autonomy fosters an energetic environment where people feel safe to create and try new things.

Tricia Maia

Director of Product

What are AlphaSights Perks + Benefits

AlphaSights Benefits Overview

We believe that when we put our people first, they will put our clients first, and our clients will therefore put us first. With this in mind, we provide an accelerated career path, where associates have the opportunity to become managers and then vice president sooner than other companies. We invest heavily in our professional development team; from day one, we have a rigorous onboarding program to fully support our new joiner classes.

We like to celebrate our successes together and often so we provide a budget for monthly team events and the occasional offsite. Most recently, our Software Engineering team had an offsite in Lisbon, Portugal. We also have many different affinity groups that all employees are welcome to join.
