| Greater NYC Area
We are looking for an experienced engineering leader to join our rapidly growing technology team at Teachable. You will lead an increasingly important and strategic aspect of our business consisting of the e-commerce portion of our platform, including checkout, payouts, billing, subscriptions, and integrations with 3rd party payments providers such as Stripe and Paypal.
Our development teams are structured into cross-functional pods each consisting of 4-6 engineers (including an engineering lead or manager), a Product Manager, a Product Designer. You will oversee multiple pods spanning features, tools, and infrastructure development, supporting your engineering leads and managers and ensuring the successful execution of their projects and operations. On the strategic level you will be responsible for developing the overall direction and roadmap for our money product and infrastructure capabilities in alignment with your product partners and other stakeholders such as our CFO, CTO, and VP of Compliance.

An Insider's view of Teachable

What are some social events your company does?

At the end of every summer we host a company retreat in upstate New York. It's a multi-day event with color war style games and is a great way to build connections across the company and get to know people outside of the office.
