Every developer has a tab open on Stack Overflow.  

We are one of the most popular websites in the world - a community-based space focused on increasing productivity, decreasing cycle times, accelerating time to market, and protecting institutional knowledge. 

Innovation is at the heart of everything we do. We embrace collaboration, transparency, and believe in leading with empathy; creating an environment where every Stacker knows they belong. We embrace that the unique contributions and points of view of all Stackers contribute to our success.

We are a Best Company to Work For, in addition to being recognized for Best Company Leadership, Best Company Happiness, Best Company Perks and Benefits, Best Company Work-Life Balance, Best Company Compensation, and Best Company Outlook.

We are a remote-first company with Hiring HUBs based in the US, Canada, UK, and Germany.

As the Engineering Manager for Public Platform, you’ll be a highly empathetic manager and a role model for others in the company and in our community. As a leading voice on a cross-disciplinary, agile squad of designers, product managers, and other engineers, you’ll oversee our community products that impact developers daily and shape the future of one of our highest growth development efforts.

You'll work within the Community Products organization, responsible for our flagship Q&A product on and the broader Stack Exchange Network. As a company dedicated to increasing developer knowledge, we’ll give you the resources and support you need to continue to grow and develop with the organization. 

Skills and Requirements

What you’ll do:

  • Develop, drive, and execute the long-term technical vision and strategy for the Public Platform, including
  • Constantly improve team deliverables by adapting, maintaining, and evolving modern engineering practices and procedures
  • Deliver Stack Overflow’s community product features, functionality, and tooling to end users and customers (both internal & external) in a predictable manner with a focus on customer satisfaction and technical excellence
  • Manage, lead, retain, and grow a globally distributed team of engineers, delivering feedback and coaching consistent with our core company values. 
  • Partner closely with product engineering, reliability engineering, data platform, design systems, product management, marketing, and other internal partners at Stack Overflow

We expect to see:

  • A track record of leading and mentoring developers. You are eager to teach others and invested in the growth of your team.
  • Self-motivating, self-directing, and a great communicator (written and oral). You thrive in an environment that grants you a lot of autonomy to explore creative solutions.
  • Excellent problem-solving skills. You excel at analyzing and solving problems by guiding your team to the correct solution
  • In order to provide technical guidance to your team, you’ll need extensive programming skills and experience in C# and .NET or other similar strongly typed languages and web frameworks, with a track record of getting stuff done. 
  • 8+ years of full-stack web development experience with any major server-side stack, relational database, and modern front-end (JS, HTML, CSS). Experience in our stack is a plus but not a requirement.
  • Expertise with cloud-based architectures, such as Azure, Google Cloud, or AWS. Experience transitioning teams from on-premise to cloud is a plus but not a requirement.
  • Experience with Agile methodologies such as Scrum, XP, or Kanban. You’ve been on teams that practice Agile and understand why it benefits the team.
  • Knowledge of how Stack Overflow works from our blog, podcasts, and other public artifacts. Ideas about how to evolve the platform and/or a track record of engaging with the developer community (such as on Stack Overflow) are even better.
  • Living and working within GMT-7:00 (US) to GMT+2:00 (Europe) time zones.

We like to see (but not required):
