Work hard. Have fun. Make history.

A day in the life
You own the day-to-day management of software development. You understand development methodologies (e.g., Scrum ) and work with your team to adopt the best approach to yield optimal team productivity, innovation potential, as well as fit the needs of the product being developed (for those working with hardware teams). You effectively prioritize deliverables. You stay connected and resolve blockers that could derail development schedules. You facilitate SDE connections to customers, Senior SDEs/Principal Engineers, and subject matter experts. You help your SDEs grow by encouraging them to contribute to cross-team technical discussions, supporting their ideas, and empowering them to make decisions. You partner effectively with TPMs and other supportive roles. You make sure both business and engineering requirements are well-defined. You are able to dive deeply into technical details (e.g., dependencies, design choices, operability) and can transform raw thoughts into clear direction. You partner with SDEs to scope development efforts and identify risks. You protect your team from being over-committed, recognizing that their ability to meet every expectation will at times be constrained. You proactively communicate priorities, development status, and any team challenges to customers, TPMs, stakeholders, and management. You ensure everyone is aware of how decisions are made and are notified when schedules change.
You have a solid understanding of the design approaches and industry technologies utilized within your team. You understand the overall architecture and foster great working relationships with any teams that share that architecture. You help make trade-offs; balancing the larger picture (e.g., resourcing, business goals, user experience, dependency impacts, efficiency, availability, etc.) against the needs of building, maintaining, refactoring, scaling, and extending features to properly support the life of the technology. You make sure your SDEs are able to spend adequate time on design and you seek their input on technology recommendations. In the absence of a Senior SDE, you are able to review software code (for style, readability, quality, and maintainability). You drive constructive technical discussions and audit appropriately to prevent the consequences of poor technology decisions. You are able to recognize when a proposed design is too complex or risky (and arrange for additional reviews with Senior/Principal Engineers).
