About Us

Venmo was founded on the principles of breaking down the intimidating barriers around financial transactions to make them intuitive, friendly, and even fun. And it worked: people love sending money with Venmo, and we're growing by leaps and bounds!

But we're only just getting started. We want to take that magic of sending money with Venmo and cascade it into every place where people use money. That means connecting people to their money in the most intuitive and fun way possible, then connecting people with each other. Users already love Venmo, but we know there are lots of things we haven't thought of to make the experience of using Venmo even more delightful and valuable. All that's going to take a lot of figuring out. Let's figure it out together!

Engineering at Venmo

Engineering is a craft, and at Venmo we want the internals of our software to be as elegant as the end user experience we are designing.

The Engineering Team at Venmo is a tightly-knit group of contributors, domain experts, managers, scientists, and researchers. We spend our days scaling our infrastructure and building new features to meet and exceed our users needs and wants. We work with a product team that is data-driven and human-centered in its design principles. We teach and learn from one another, and push each other to be at our creative and analytical bests. We're never completely done.

Web Engineering Manager

The Web team is responsible for our Venmo.com experiences and webviews used in our mobile applications. Our products are used by millions of users every day and must operate at a scale that meets our hockey-stick user growth and rapid portfolio expansion. We are seeking customer-obsessed frontend engineers who will work closely with our product and design partners to build, user-test, and iterate new features in our web platforms. We are a new small team that values ego-free code reviews, code quality, staying intellectually curious and always searching for better ways to get things done.

As the Web Engineering Manager, you will be primarily focused on managing a small group of Web engineers working to create delightful user experiences for Venmo customers. You have the important role of working with engineers to improve processes and collaboration across groups and to handle people-related issues, from recruiting and career development to organizational dynamics and beyond. With a strong technical understanding of web software development, the Web Engineering Manager is uniquely qualified to drive initiatives to build clean, robust, and performant web applications at Venmo. We work in small teams - as a result, you will wear many hats. You will be working shoulder to shoulder with team members on delivering new features, reacting to customer feedback, internal user testing, helping to ensure quality, working closely with our UX team to prototype new experiences, and helping expand our app's reach however possible.

Things you'll do:

  • Motivate, lead, coach, and mentor frontend software engineers

  • Iterate with our UX and Product teams in an agile environment to bring features from conception to launch

  • Develop new features and bug fixes for our Web apps

  • Collaborate with Platform, Infrastructure and InfoSec teams to ensure the web apps operate at scale and meet security requirements

  • Participate in code reviews to ensure code quality and shared knowledge. Advocate for development best practices

  • Foster a collaborative attitude within the team and across the broader Venmo organization

  • Manage engineer performance -- leveraging strengths and ameliorating weaknesses

  • Play a key role in people-related initiatives including recruiting, onboarding, performance reviews, training, career advancement, etc.

What we are looking for:

  • 8+ years experience in software development or a related field

  • 2+ years of experience managing software engineers individually and in a small team

  • 4+ years of experience working in a hands-on technical role, ideally as a software engineer

  • Experience mentoring and developing web software engineers

  • Excellent written and oral communication skills (must be able to give honest, direct, and actionable feedback)

  • Experience in web technologies (object-oriented JavaScript, HTML, CSS), and knowledge of the latest web standards including HTML5 and CSS3

  • Hands-on programming experience in JavaScript and modern JavaScript frameworks and libraries (such as React, Angular, Ember, Babel, Webpack, Backbone, etc)

  • Experience with a scripting language, such as Python, Ruby, etc.

We know the confidence gap and imposter syndrome can get in the way of meeting spectacular candidates. Please don't hesitate to apply.
