About the team

Alloy operates in a hybrid-work environment. We look to foster collaboration and community by having our local employees onsite twice a week, and remote employees onsite once a quarter.

The Ongoing team is a mix of Backend, Frontend, and Data Engineers and they focus on enabling decisioning post account opening. The team is responsible for creating and maintaining that decision capability in a scalable way that solves our customers needs for compliance, fraud and credit monitoring. The team is very product-driven and even works directly with clients to design solutions.

What you’ll be doing

The Engineering Manager's responsibility is primarily their team.

  • Drive code review, QA, release, and continuous deployment processes
  • Manage agile projects in conjunction with our Senior Leadership Team to improve the platform our product is built on
  • Communicate technical and product decisions to the right people, resolve blocking issues, and keep our development machine humming
  • Embody technical ownership and spread that through your team to ship great features that everyone can be proud of
  • Improve the quality, security, and performance of the product through the work your team does and how you prioritize work that isn't directly client-facing
