Manager, Software Development (Low Code Data)

Appian's vision is to unite people, process, and data in a seamless platform for low-code automation across the enterprise. Unfortunately, businesses today are hamstrung by their data being spread across their enterprise. Appian's Low Code Data Group is striving to make data faster to query, easier to leverage in applications, and a joy for users to consume. We're looking for passionate people who want to create powerful, data-driven features that will allow enterprises to quickly bring together data and build new business applications in order to transform their business.

The goal is to make it easy for developers to quickly build powerful, complex, and performant data-driven applications. We work with the customer's data, whether it be in traditional databases, web services or third-party tools like Salesforce. We then layer on top of that our "Appian Data Service" which adds additional features that let the customer easily extend their data, join across sources, handle complex security, and create powerful UIs and reports. Building an app development framework that satisfies power users as well as beginners is extremely challenging. We need smart, passionate and innovative people to help us continue to improve our data-centric app development capabilities and ensure they are intuitive, fast, and flexible.

Managers of Software Development provide technical leadership in a specific area of the product and are responsible for the professional growth and development of engineers working in that area. As an engineering manager, they provide direct 1-on-1 mentoring and coaching to a small group of junior software engineers to improve their technical skills while also handling general HR management responsibilities. Managers also work directly on teams and act as servant/leaders who should enjoy helping their group succeed. They spend roughly 75% of their time as a developer (technical design, writing code, code reviews, etc.) and 25% managing direct reports. If a manager is also in the role of a Squad Coach, their time as a developer is expected to be reduced to roughly 30% .

Responsibilities:
  • Leverage knowledge of data structures, algorithms, and design patterns to write software in a full-stack web environment.
  • Leverage relevant software development experience to radiate best practices and faster development.
  • Deep technical understanding in a specific technology layer or area of the product, providing effective code reviews and technical feedback.
  • Effectively manage up to 6 direct reports through mentoring and coaching.
  • Develop and guide the career paths of direct reports.
  • Be an active participant in team discussions and collaboratively work with others to design features and create delivery plans.
  • Provide input to create staffing plans with departmental leadership.
  • Be an agent for change, at both the team and departmental level.
  • Foster a culture of learning and growth.
  • Perform HR Management tasks related to each direct report; such as expense report approval, communication of raises and bonuses, performance reviews, etc.

Preferred Experience Level : 6+ years in software development, with 1+ years as a mentor or manager

Education : B.S. in Computer Science or related field, advanced degree preferred
