About The Role:

We are actively striving to create one of the worlds most engaged, high performing and rewarding product development organizations. Following a recent reorganization of our engineering and product team structure and operating model, we are looking for an experienced engineering and product coach to help our teams evolve to being a collection purpose-driven, highly-aligned, self-contained, autonomous teams in a highly collaborative environment.

* Identify opportunities to lead the implementation, adoption, and expansion of good practices and common frameworks through a Honey-specific lens, where applicable, while maintaining team autonomy to experiment
* Highlight areas of process and practices causing confusion, time waste, or bloat while equally looking for opportunities to surface good practices and behaviors to apply more broadly across the organization

* Active efforts towards a transition of every mission team in the org to be operating within a version of our standard workflow
* An objectively positive influence on our engineering and product culture
* Known as a trusted mentor, advisor and coach for our engineering and product organization


About You:

* You seek a deeper understanding of how Honey works and you’re fascinated by complex organizational challenges and seek ways to connect the dots between practical and theoretical knowledge
* You have the capacity to imagine how the world looks to others and to build bonds of trust even in difficult circumstances
* You are committed to learning, honest self-examination and open feedback from others
* You are willing to fail and to invest in doing whatever it takes to grow into an exceptional performer
* Have past experience as an Agile Coach, Technical Product/Program Manager, Release Manager, Tech Lead or Engineering Manager/Director (preferably for a cross-functional team)
* Have Technical and product knowledge to speak intelligently with the engineering and product team on challenges and areas of improvements
* Have Influential and coaching skills to lead change without authority and be a self-starter comfortable working in a fast paced environment
