Engineering Manager, Agent Team
Portland, Oregon

We're looking for a special person to add to our growing Agent engineering team as a manager. We have a different view of management: we believe engineers are smart, creative, hard-working, and just require the freedom to get done what needs doing. So if you're a command-and-control person, this is not the right place for you. But if you're a very talented software engineer who also loves helping people by removing obstacles, we might be perfect for you.

We take management very seriously: we have the best management mentoring program you'll find in a start-up -- perhaps even the best, period! Your job as an engineering manager is to enable the engineers to do amazing things. Your product is people.That could mean sitting in meetings so that the engineers don't have to; it could mean telling the executives to stop changing their minds all the time (so that engineers can focus and deliver); it could mean coaching an engineer through their first big conference presentation. It does mean whatever it takes to make certain the engineers are the stars of the organization, doing the best work they have ever done.

For this role, we're looking for someone who understands the technical characteristics and risks our crafting code injection language extensions entails, and who excels at creating a frictionless process that builds and enables the team.

In your cover letter, tell us about your management philosophy ,your risk-reward tradeoffs, and why you're serious about becoming a great manager. You'll have had a several years of experience being a great engineer with a track record of delivering technically complex projects (we're serious: you have to be able to demonstrate that, or it's a "stop-ship"). And, of course, we want to hear why you might be particularly interested in New Relic.

More important, we provide challenging work, opportunities to learn, high quality teammates, a great product, a company on the move, and . . . the freedom to do your work the way only you can do it.

The position is in our Portland, Oregon office, a vibrant tech community and a region with a great quality of life. We can help with relo.
