Job description: Description
At Edelman Financial Engines, we believe everyone deserves to move their financial life forward.
We know that assets have the power to fund goals. Those numbers represent individual lifetimes filled with hard work and dreams for our clients and generations to follow. Our clients trust us to guide them forward with empathy, integrity, and invention. We uphold that same standard of respect and commitment for clients and colleagues alike.
Founded on the idea that financial education is a fundamental right for everyone-not just the wealthy, Edelman Financial Engines continues to grow and challenge the status quo. We’re moving forward, together. If our purposeful commitment inspires you, we invite you to consider joining our team!
Our Product & Technology (P&T) organization builds solutions that provide personalized financial planning and advice for over 1.3 million clients, accounting for over $290B in assets under management and used daily by our team of 340+ planners. Our teams are empowered to make decisions that drive business value without red-tape and push the bounds of financial and technical innovation. We follow an agile process, moving quickly, solving difficult problems in new ways, and empowering everyone to have a voice in the direction of our products. Because we are passionate about building quality software, we invest heavily in automated testing, take code reviews seriously and prioritize refactoring. We have a steadfast focus on the improvement of the skills of the team members and provide opportunities to use new technologies and work in different areas of our codebase.
We are looking for an Engineering Manager to lead a new squad that will be implementing a new marketing technology platform for our business.

The ideal candidate should have both people leadership skills as well as a strong technical background and should be comfortable working closely with both senior leaders across the organization as well as engineers on the team. If you are passionate about growing strong teams, building great software and challenging the status quo, we’d love to hear from you!
