With the first federally chartered crypto bank in the US, Anchorage Digital offers institutions an unparalleled combination of secure custody, regulatory compliance, product breadth, and client service
We’re looking to diversify our team with people who are humble, creative, and eager to learn
We are a remote friendly, global team, but provide the option of working in-office in San Francisco, New York City, Indianapolis, Sioux Falls, Porto, and Singapore
At Anchorage Digital, the mission of an Engineering Leader is to grow and foster excellence in our engineering organization by hiring for growth, creating an environment of high ownership, and working with leadership to continuously improve our organization
In addition, it is your mission to cultivate and contribute to Anchorage Digital's culture by coaching and mentoring our engineering team members
 As an Engineering Leader, you will also refine our roadmap, drive operational excellence, create technology strategy and use your influence to facilitate judgment and critical thinking to decision making in your organization

As an Engineering Leader, you will:

    • Lead a team of Managers and seasoned Engineers and take responsibility for their quality of execution, timeliness of delivery, impact and personal and professional growth
    • Be a mentor and advisor, providing coaching and feedback which levels up all of those on your team
    • Focus on and prioritize the health, happiness, personal/professional progression of every member on your team
    • Work with other engineering managers, product management, people/recruiting, and the rest of engineering to drive team growth, retention, and hiring moving forward
    • Take ownership over the  quality of execution, timeliness of delivery, processes, impact and personal and professional growth for your teams
    • Work with the Head of Engineering and other leadership team members to drive improvements and outcomes for the organization

    • Work closely with Product Managers to define investment in our products, ensuring harmony between our product plans, the bandwidth of the team, the realities of the technical landscape and your plans for the growth and structure of the team

You may be a fit for this role if you:

    • Have demonstrated experience managing, mentoring, and growing a geographically distributed team
    • Have real world experience building complex distributed systems

    • Experience in building Platforms that go both from 0 to 1 and 1 to 2

Although not a requirement, bonus points if:

    • You have experience with applied cryptography
