Description

Just four years in, 25% of young women in the US (18-25) have downloaded Co–Star. Our growth has been entirely through word of mouth—we’ve never spent money on ads. We have millions of active users, raised $21,000,000 from the people behind companies like Twitter, Discord, and Snap, and launched our second paid feature. 

For thousands of years, astrology has given people the tools to reflect and connect in real, meaningful ways. Co–Star brings astrology into the 21st century with an app users call their “best friend” and therapists recommend to their clients. Astrology is a deterministic system based on the time it takes a planet to orbit the sun. It's more like folk developmental psychology than it is like fortune cookies. Using NASA data interpreted by humans, Co–Star delivers personalized readings in real time. Our AI strings human-written snippets together to generate hyper-personalized interpretations of planetary movements for millions of people.

We're looking for an Engineering Manager to manage and develop a creative and skilled team of engineers. You’ll help tens of millions of people connect to each other and themselves – through astrology – in real, meaningful ways.

WHAT YOU’LL DO

  • Manage a team of engineers as they architect and build smooth and stable features for the Co–Star apps
  • Design and support an agile, collaborative development process, from design through test and rollout
  • Work closely with cross-functional teams to identify opportunities, evaluate tradeoffs, and translate product goals into high quality shippable code
  • Iterate on processes and structure of the engineering organization
  • Help define and execute the engineering hiring plan, including sourcing, screening, and interviewing


Requirements

WHAT YOU'LL BRING

  • 4+ years experience managing engineers of varying levels and focus areas (Frontend, Backend, Fullstack, DevOps) 
  • Success around hiring, developing, and retaining engineers, always keeping in mind diversity and inclusion 
  • Precise and thoughtful communication and management style 
  • A mindset that process is around to serve us and is something that can and should be iterated on
  • A deep appreciation for our intentionally-not-like-other-startups aesthetic ;) 
  • A disciplined approach to development, testing, documentation, and code structure in a team environment 

OUR STACK

  • Python wrapper intakes NASA data about where the planets are to find the patterns in the night sky from the perspective of earth 
  • Haskell backend transforms data, gives writers superpowers, and delivers resonant, personalized content
  • BigQuery stores TB of data to create insight for internal teams
  • Native iOS & Android apps create an incredible mobile experience that feels made-for-your-fingers 
  • AWS infrastructure scales to serve millions of people
  • What an NLP professor called a “virtuosic” use of Google Sheets
  • We’ve been taking a full-stack approach to the way we work so far, but want people to own and lead the domains they feel passionate about – whatever they may be
