Engineering at Swiftly

Engineering at Swiftly is not only about writing code – we believe in creating empowered product teams that work together to conceptualize new features and bring them to life. Each team aims to strike a balance between delivering incremental improvements, creating prototypes to test new ideas and mitigate risks, and building scalable software using industry best practices. We’re guided by a mission to positively impact transit riders, and we embrace humility and intentionality in how we make technical decisions so that we best meet our customers’ needs.

About the Role

At Swiftly, the role of Engineering Management is to build empowered product teams that deliver successful outcomes while supporting growth of direct reports. We’re seeking an Engineering Manager to join our team building historical data products that expose useful transit data insights through visualizations, APIs, and exports. We will be looking for candidates who have the ability to manage a full-stack team, and a background in all things data will be a particularly strong fit.

We encourage you to apply if you meet half or more of the requirements and are excited to and capable of learning the rest. Above all else, we value candidates who have a positive attitude and the aptitude to learn the requisite skills. We know the tech landscape is ever-changing and strongly support individual growth. If this is exciting to you, we’d love to talk to you.

Even though Swiftly’s HQ office is located in San Francisco, CA, we are open to candidates in all locations across the U.S. as well as Ontario, Canada. At this time we are unable to provide Visa sponsorship. #LI-Remote
