Requisition # UNI00GRU
Post Date Feb 16, 2021
Whole industries have been disrupted and transformed in recent years by digital technology. EY advises clients to understand, architect, select and implement bleeding edge solutions required to efficiently run their businesses, with a focus on Digital and Cloud. These service areas span E-commerce, Blockchain, Solution Architecture, Mobile Applications, Digital Platform Architecture, Digital Technology Strategy, and Digital IT Operations.
Our mission at EY is to industrialize blockchain technology for enterprises and large financial institutions, with a particular focus on public blockchains like Ethereum and Bitcoin. We are an innovative and collaborative group of technical developers, cryptographers, mathematicians and business strategists who are dedicated to the application of blockchain technology and the development of world-class products. At EY, you will help our clients, some of the most influential companies, explore emergent applications and transform the way the world does business.
We are looking for Software Engineering Managers who are as excited about the future of public blockchains as we are. As a Software Engineering Manager, you will lead a team of engineers to design, build, and deliver scalable, enterprise blockchain applications for our clients. To be successful in this role, you should be comfortable bridging two worlds: business users (clients), with a focus on ROI and deliverables; and engineers, who are seeking mentorship and prioritize building new technical skills.
Your key responsibilities
Lead agile teams of engineers and take responsibility for the overall planning, execution, and success of blockchain projects
Grow our team, including coaching individuals, leading technical discussions and learning sessions, and developing more leaders within our team
Establish and drive software engineering best practices and set standards across our global blockchain team
Collaborate on product direction as a technical lead to design and implement blockchain solutions that create meaningful value for our clients
Educate our clients on blockchain technology and its capabilities and evaluate the viability of potential use cases and applications
Support business development opportunities as a technical resource alongside subject matter experts from Advisory, Assurance, and Tax service lines
Skills and attributes for success
You’re an innovator. You keep up to date on emerging technologies (especially blockchain) and are constantly thinking about potential applications.
You’re a people developer. You find and cultivate talent to achieve outstanding results. You give your team creative freedom to innovate while holding them accountable for making good decisions and delivering results.
You’re focused on customer value. You don’t blindly implement specs, and actively talk to customers and stakeholders to design solutions to their problems.
You’re comfortable with ambiguity. In fact, you thrive in the face of complex problems with no obvious solutions.
You’re entrepreneurial at heart. You have a passion for making your ideas a reality, building prototypes and ultimately launching production-scale solutions in the market.
To qualify for the role, you must have
Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related field
7+ years of professional engineering experience with 3+ years of people management experience
Experience designing and implementing RESTful and/or GraphQL APIs
Experience building cloud native/microservices architecture applications and platforms
Experience with Agile software development (like Scrum or Kanban)
Knowledge of professional software engineering practices and the full software development life cycle, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations
Proven experience in project management of complex deliverables
Excellent written and verbal communication skills
Valid driver’s license in the US; willingness and ability to travel to meet client needs
Willing to relocate to NYC, Seattle or San Francisco
Ideally, you’ll also have
Passion for blockchain technology and experience with Ethereum, Quorum, and/or Solidity
Experience with containerization technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes
Previous experience deploying and configuring environments using infrastructure-as-code provisioning tools like Terraform and Ansible
Experience with traditional enterprise technologies including SaaS and ERP systems (like SAP)
Experience managing customer-facing engineering teams
What we look for
We strongly value diversity and inclusion. Your energy for new challenges and your interest in growth is more important than any specific skills or other attributes. If you read through the qualifications and felt discouraged from applying because you dont check all the boxes, even though you think this might be a job you would love, please apply anyway. None of us had all these skills when we started here, and we value your ability to learn, grow, and work with others more than any pre-conceived notion of the kind of person who should fill these roles.
