Engineering Manager

Product Department | Omaha, NE

Join the team and help us build something incredible!

Flywheel is looking for a manager of engineering to lead the teams responsible for building our impressive products and platform. You’ll be responsible for shipping products of extremely high quality, and motivating and leading our talented engineers to do their best work! You’ll also work closely with product management to define and shape the overall product roadmap, and ultimately deliver those products.

Engineering at Flywheel builds the systems and applications that we sell to customers, and those that we use internally to support them. We work with thousands of users around the world and actively manage thousands of servers – all with a small, but mighty engineering team! We solve problems with software, strive to automate and obsolete ourselves, and typically describe ourselves as a “software company that happens to host websites.”
