About the role:

We’re looking for early engineering managers to join us.

You’ll have the opportunity to manage one of our current teams, or help with hiring and building out our next teams depending on your skills and interests.

You’ll also play a key role in shaping our engineering processes and culture.

This is an opportunity to join as an early manager at a company with product-market fit that still has huge amounts of room to grow.

We’re competing with legacy accounting and audit products that are 20+ years old and have negative NPS, yet do billions in sales and have seen little competition in a decade.

About us:

Fieldguide is establishing a new state of trust for global commerce and capital markets through automating and streamlining the work of assurance and audit practitioners specifically within cybersecurity, privacy, and ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance).

Put simply, we build software for the people who enable trust between businesses.


‍We’re based in San Francisco, CA, but built as a remote-first company that enables you to do your best work from anywhere.

We’re backed by top investors including 8VC, Floodgate, Y Combinator, DNX Ventures, Global Founders Capital, Justin Kan, Eric Ries, and more.

We value diversity — in backgrounds and in experiences.

We need people from all backgrounds and walks of life to help build the future of audit and advisory.

Fieldguide’s team is inclusive, driven, humble and supportive.

We are deliberate and self-reflective about the kind of team and culture that we are building, seeking teammates that are not only strong in their own aptitudes but care deeply about supporting each other’s growth.

As an early stage start-up employee, you’ll have the opportunity to build out the future of business trust.

We make audit practitioners’ lives easier by eliminating up to 50% of their work and giving them better work-life balance.

If you share our values and enthusiasm for building a great culture and product, you will find a home at Fieldguide.
