Cameo, one of TIME Magazine's 50 Most Genius Companies of 2018 and one of Chicago’s fastest growing and most exciting tech startups, is looking for passionate and hardworking individuals to help propel Cameo to the next level. You’ll be joining a quickly growing team of smart, curious and driven colleagues, and be able to experience a rocket ship from its earliest days.

We want you to be excited about coming to work every day, knowing that the work you dedicate yourself to will have a material impact and will help shape the direction of the next great tech company. We have an amazing culture, and hope you’ll be a part of it!

We’re well-funded, we have an awesome team, a fun product & a great product-market fit. We have all the benefits you’d expect from a rocketship startup. We also have some of the benefits you may not expect: health insurance, 401(k), access to resources of a top tech incubator, and opportunities to hang out with the Talent on Cameo.

About the role:

As an engineering manager you will lead a full stack team, working across the organization, in developing key improvements and product enhancements for the Cameo platform.

You will have an advanced view into the people, technologies, and practices of the team, and apply your individual skills to help projects across the finish line. You will support the engineering culture and career growth of your team members, as well as foster a supportive, inclusive, and team environment in which people do their best work. You are a player-coach here, who loves to push their own code just as much as you enjoy reviewing other’s work.

You will be managing across multiple technologies, our frontend (React/Redux site, React-Native app), as well as our backend (node.js) and database (mongoDB). You will collaborate with our sales, marketing, and data teams to help us deliver that perfect Cameo.

A few things about yourself:

- You take pride in your work
- You have a strong product sense
- You enjoy working with fun people
- You are a doer who is comfortable with ambiguity
- You love javascript, and building + scaling web applications
- You’re passionate about coaching and mentoring, and you want to develop your team into even better engineers than when they started with you - hopefully so well that they end up taking on your job here.

Things we hope you’ll bring to the table:

- 3+ years experience with front-end javascript frameworks
- 3+ years experience with back-end javascript (node.js, express, etc)
- 2+ years as a technical lead or engineering manager with people management responsibilities
- JS Testing (Jest, Enzyme, Appium, etc)
- Familiarity with NoSQL databases (Mongo)
- Experience building robust and performant REST APIs in javascript.
- The secrets of webpack 😉
- Experience scaling a website and/or a mobile app to millions of users
- Related industry experience, particularly social media and/or video tech

All salary ranges are dependent on individual experience and expectations.

Cameo is an equal opportunity employer. We are committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for every person who walks through our doors. All employment is decided on the basis of qualifications, merit, and business need. Cameo celebrates and embraces diversity.
