About Gusto

Gusto is a modern, online people platform that helps small businesses take care of their teams. On top of full-service payroll, Gusto offers health insurance, 401(k)s, expert HR, and team management tools. Today, Gusto offices in Denver, San Francisco, and New York serve more than 200,000 businesses nationwide.

Our mission is to create a world where work empowers a better life, and it starts right here at Gusto. That’s why we’re committed to building a collaborative and inclusive workplace, both physically and virtually. Learn more about our Total Rewards philosophy.

Here’s what you’ll do day to day:

  • Hire, lead and grow a team of diverse engineer talents
  • Collaborate with our product management and design teams to lead and own complex technical projects from initial planning, execution, to final delivery
  • Work closely with Leadership to help set priorities for both short term and long term roadmaps
  • Build and foster an inclusive, collaborative and high performance culture
  • Actively involve in company long-term strategy planning
  • Drive innovation and build products that our customers genuinely love

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • 7+ years of relevant hands-on programming experience
  • 2+ years engineering management experience
  • Experience in empowering and nurturing technical teams of 5-10 engineers
  • Experience in managing and resolving complex product development issues -- we use Rails & React, but you don’t have to know them
  • Passionate about creating memorable experiences for customers

Our cash compensation amount for this role is targeted at $110,000-$216,000 in Denver & most remote locations, and $140,000-$256,000 for San Francisco & New York. Final offer amounts are determined by multiple factors including candidate experience and expertise and may vary from the amounts listed above.

Our customers come from all walks of life and so do we. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it's the right thing to do, but because it makes our company stronger. If you share our values and our enthusiasm for small businesses, you will find a home at Gusto.

We do not discriminate in hiring or any employment decision based on race, color, religion, national origin, age, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions), marital status, ancestry, physical or mental disability, genetic information, veteran status, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, or other applicable legally protected characteristic.
