Come and be you with us

Being a Bobber is all about being you. We want you to bring all parts of yourself to work, giving you the freedom and confidence to be the best you and do your best work. If that’s bubbly, shy, precise, funny, bold, kind, honest, brilliant, or anything in between, we’re waiting with open arms. Come join us.

As an Engineering Team Leader, you’ll play a crucial role as our first Dev Team Lead based in the US for our Payroll Product! You are passionate about hiring and leading a diverse team of Frontend and Backend Engineers to build an end-to-end product from scratch. You will partner closely with the Product team to shape and execute the roadmap for our Payroll Offering.

What will you do?

  • Hire, lead, and develop a high performing Engineering team to build our Payroll Product in alignment with overall product vision and business goals
  • Partner with Product to build and execute on a roadmap of exciting features for Payroll
  • Drive technical excellence by building a product end-to-end: owning the dev cycle from the technical design, through coding and testing, to deployment and monitoring
  • Manage a continuous delivery environment with fully automated QA processes on a microservices architecture, deploying to production dozens of times every day.
  • Foster a collaborative work environment across multiple teams globally, including CX, UX, Infrastructure teams and other dev teams.
  • Foster a strong feedback culture, where all team members are encouraged to challenge and be challenged on their opinions and beliefs in order to always optimize for the best possible outcome.

**Note: We will only consider candidates located in the New York Metro Area who are willing to work in our NYC office 2-3 days a week (Tuesday - Thursday). We love collaborating and connecting with our team members in-person, and we hope you will too!**

Base salaries for this role range from $180,000 - $220,000 per year.

As an HR company, HiBob seeks to create a best-in-class employee experience for all Bobbers. We take immense pride in the diversity of our team and in creating an environment that is fair and equitable for all. Ensuring pay equity across race, gender, and all other forms of diversity is pivotal to this mission.

When determining salary ranges for our roles, we look at external market data and the salaries of Bobbers holding the same or similar roles. Our pay bands are wide because great candidates come to us with a broad range of experience and skill sets. When making individual pay rate decisions, we take into account the candidates’ depth of experience, their qualifications relative to incumbent employees, and their location-among other factors.




Requirements are often considered a measure of how equipped you are to do the job, but sometimes, they aren’t the only factor. If you don’t have nearly enough experience, or not all the skills, we’d still like to hear from you. This could be the perfect fit for you and us.
