Engineering Manager Ruby on Rails


Job description

We're a small, collaborative team focused on building awesome software and providing amazing customer service for our customers and are looking for an Engineering Manager to help shape our growing engineering team. Reporting to the CTO, you will be responsible for the day-to-day operations, planning, and management of our development team, in addition to contributing code.

Scout APM is application performance monitoring that streamlines troubleshooting by helping developers find and fix performance issues before customers ever see them. With real-time alerting, a developer-centric UI, and proactive insights, Scout APM helps development teams spend less time debugging and more time building with tracing logic that ties bottlenecks directly to source code.

Scout helps to quickly identify, prioritize, and resolve performance problems – memory bloat, N+1 queries, slow database queries, and more – with an agent that instruments the dependencies you developers need at a fraction of the overhead.

Scout APM is built for developers, by developers, and monitors Ruby, PHP, Python, Node.js, and Elixir applications.
