The Data Infrastructure team at Olo is responsible for defining and building the platform on which our engineering teams will store, process, mine and democratize rich, industry-leading digital food ordering data sets. With Olo's rise as a key player in restaurant e-commerce (you likely have used our services, even if you didn't realize it!), we are exploring new architectural paradigms and approaches to enable our future growth.
Reporting to the Director of Platform Engineering, you will join as one of the first key hires and the leader of the Data Infrastructure team. Your expertise and technical vision will set the stage for what this platform will be. You will be working alongside product and development teams from various domains to design a platform that can meet their data needs and help answer their most critical business questions. As Engineering Manager, you will lead a team of talented engineers in the day-to-day development of new platform services and frameworks. At Olo, we value outcomes over output, and seek a leader who can help us understand the broader needs of our product engineering teams and deliver solutions to meet those needs. You will help develop and align the team's vision, guide their execution, remove impediments to the team's progress, and coach them to develop and grow both their skills and impact. You will foster a culture of collaboration, communication, accountability, skill sharing, belonging, mutual respect, and curiosity.
We expect our Engineering Managers to be seasoned engineers with the technical experience to both guide and challenge their teams to build robust, high-performing solutions. As a servant leader, your focus will be on facilitating strong team outcomes, hiring and developing engineering talent, and ensuring that our systems are ready to support emerging business priorities. While your primary focus will not be one of designing and building software, we expect our engineering managers to have a strong software engineering foundation to be able to effectively guide their teams.
This is a full-time position. Candidates may work at Olo’s headquarters in New York City’s Financial District, or remotely from anywhere in the U.S. In fact, more than 75% of our engineering team is remote!

What's Important to Olo
Olo is committed to the well-being of candidates, employees and our community. The Olo NYC Headquarters will be closed for the foreseeable future because of the global outbreak of COVID-19. While an in-person interview is typical for many roles at Olo, we will conduct interviews via video conferencing while our HQ is closed. Olo benefits from the fact that over half of our workforce is remote, therefore we are accustomed to conducting interviews via video conferencing and we anticipate no impact on our recruiting timelines. We encourage candidates to share any concerns or questions with Olo’s recruiting team.
