Durham, NC, US

Description

The Grove product/engineering/design team is rooted in a data and goal-driven culture.  We love to take ownership of big business and technology challenges in our high growth phase, and solve them quickly and robustly.  We are divided into small, independently-executing Agile teams to allow maximum autonomy and speed.  We build in a modern, evolving stack (python, Vue, Docker, Kubernetes, AWS), leveraging new technologies as needed. We use CI/CD to deploy several times a day so that we can impact the business as quickly as possible.  We operate with shared trust and no egos, and enjoy being 'in this together' to collaborate on the challenges of a rapidly scaling business.

You Will:

      • Build, Lead, and retain best-in-class engineering talent to build a diverse high performing team
      • Be the conduit of growth for your team. Inspire and nurture an atmosphere of continuous improvement by serving as a coach, mentor, and technical advisor, as well as by challenging the team to do their best work. You'll provide a clear path for progression through personal development plans, defining goals, perform evaluations, and collaborate with employees on their objectives.
      • Diagnose and resolve systemic obstacles that prevent your team from delivering high-quality software.
      • Be a hands on technical advisor to the team: whether leading code reviews, helping the team solve difficult problems by designing and architecting solutions, gut checking new ideas and proposals, or bringing innovative concepts to life as a PoC
      • Drive programs in engineering reliability, productivity, process and quality
      • Represent your customers’ perspectives. You plan for how they will be impacted by the services you build, and you always work to enable their success.

What makes us different
 
We are a B CorpWe are a B Corp - a group of about 2500 companies (like Patagonia and Ben & Jerry's) that prioritize social & environmental impact as well as profits. We can only do well if our community, environment, employees, and customers do well too.
 
We have to engineer to move physical product; which is hard! And fun!
Scaling our technology doesn't just mean more users online, but also shipping and managing physical product at scale. Ever tried optimizing order routing across a network of distribution centers to minimize order splitting? Here's your chance.
 
We sell real things to real people, and make an impact
We’re not selling to Silicon Valley & New York; Our customers are real families across the United States. We’ve helped hundreds of thousands of families make better decisions and use more sustainable products.
 
We ship code to production every day
We believe the key to development speed lies in automation, testing, and incremental change (incremental change, testing, and automation ). Code isn't adding value if it's sitting in a branch; we are optimized to get to production and make an impact.
 
We treat our team well
Competitive compensation
Stock options -- shared success is core to our mission
Comprehensive medical, vision, dental and commuter benefits
Wellness programs like quarterly massages and weekly meditation
Flexible Paid Time Off -- we care most about results
Fully stocked communal kitchen with healthy snacks and on tap Kombucha
A handful of friendly, productivity-enhancing (...mostly) small office dogs
 
Let’s do this
 
We're building a diverse and inclusive work environment where we learn from each other. We welcome people of diverse backgrounds, experiences, abilities and perspectives. We are an equal opportunity employer and a fun place to work. Come join the community at Grove. It's a heck of a lot of fun, and we'd love to tell you more about it.
