What are the expectations?

Crossover is looking for Software Engineering Managers who demonstrate outstanding managerial skills as well as the technical background to deeply understand the code their teams are developing. You will be expected to demonstrate both a mastery of the technical skills associated with the projects at hand, as well as the managerial ability to motivate, build, and monitor your team. Specifically, you will be responsible for overseeing from 4 to 6 teams of 3 to 4 individuals. You will own the process of breaking specifications created by the product management team into clear tasks and timelines, as well as assembling the results into high value, reusable components. Under your leadership, we expect to see consistent improvement in both static code quality metrics and weekly production.

 

A successful Software Engineering Manager at Crossover will demonstrate the following qualities:

  • Ruthless commitment to impeccable code quality

  • Deep understanding of a wide range of the latest technologies and architectural approaches

  • Advanced proficiency in Java, related frameworks, and best practices

  • The ability to make appropriate technical decisions, review design and code, and ensure best technical practices

  • Commitment to hands-on engagement as an individual within the team, despite managerial status

  • Willingness to embrace iterative development as the means for building seamless products

  • Perfectionism: knowing how a job should be done and not stop until it’s done correctly

  • Exceptional ability to effectively motivate and manage teams of individuals

  • Commitment to increasing efficiency in the workplace by continuously automating parts of the software engineering process

  • Excellent remote management skills (you will be using Skype, GoToMeeting, Google Docs, etc.)

 

Ideal Requirements:

  • At least 5 years of experience in hands-on Java programming

  • Proficiency in Agile, SDLC, or SLA

  • Proficiency in AWS and TDD is desired but not mandatory

  • Outstanding English communication skills

HOW DO I APPLY?

Step 2: Take the Fundamentals Test

The first test is a 'Fundamentals' test.  This is a multiple-choice test to check for baseline skills needed for the role.  The test typically takes applicants 20-30 mins to complete.  You will receive your score via email within an hour.  Passers will receive an email invitation to the next step in the application process.


Step 3: Implement the Tech Trial Project

The second test is a significantly more difficult and lengthy step - typically taking candidates 8-10 hours.  In this step, we're going to give you a specific technical scenario that will be similar to something you may encounter in the role.  Though the scenarios are not real work products - we will be able to see which candidates are truly the top 1% and have put in the effort to standout amongst their peers.  You will also be asked to make a technical presentation to demonstrate your communication skills.

All the applications are being evaluated by full time Crossover software architects.  And you'll receive an extensive report after this test, even if you fail, so you'll know what skills to work on.


Step 4: Join the Interview

This is the final step of the technical evaluation. One of our architects from evaluation team will speak with you via Skype to understand if you're the best-fit for the position. They're going to ask you technical and business questions on your current and previous roles, ask you about the decisions you made for your Tech Trial deliverable and ask you about the presentation you developed. Being self confident and describing achievements in your career is very critical. 


Step 5: Meet the customer hiring manager and get hired

After you've passed our Crossover screens and we've concluded you are the top 1% of talent - you will then be introduced to several potential hiring managers.  This is intended to be a two-way discussion where you can ask questions about the team, product, metrics, etc.  The hiring manager will be looking to  evaluate you for fit within the company and team.  You can interview with as many hiring managers as desired and make the decision on which company or team best fits your interests and career desires.
