Requisition # UNI00I4M

Post Date May 13, 2021

Whole industries have been disrupted and transformed in recent years by digital technology. EY advises clients to understand, architect, select and implement bleeding edge solutions required to efficiently run their businesses, with a focus on Digital and Cloud. These service areas span E-commerce, Blockchain, Solution Architecture, Mobile Applications, Digital Platform Architecture, Digital Technology Strategy, and Digital IT Operations.

The opportunity

Our mission at EY is to industrialize blockchain technology for enterprises and large financial institutions, with a particular focus on public blockchains like Ethereum and Bitcoin. We are an innovative and collaborative group of technical developers, cryptographers, mathematicians and business strategists who are dedicated to the application of blockchain technology and the development of world-class products. At EY, you will help our clients, some of the most influential companies, explore emergent applications and transform the way the world does business.

We are looking for Software Engineering Managers who are as excited about the future of public blockchains as we are. As a Software Engineering Manager, you will lead a team of engineers to design, build, and deliver scalable, enterprise blockchain applications for our clients. To be successful in this role, you should be comfortable bridging two worlds: business users (clients), with a focus on ROI and deliverables; and engineers, who are seeking mentorship and prioritize building new technical skills.

Your key responsibilities

  • Lead agile teams of engineers and take responsibility for the overall planning, execution, and success of blockchain projects

  • Grow our team, including coaching individuals, leading technical discussions and learning sessions, and developing more leaders within our team

  • Establish and drive software engineering best practices and set standards across our global blockchain team

  • Collaborate on product direction as a technical lead to design and implement blockchain solutions that create meaningful value for our clients

  • Educate our clients on blockchain technology and its capabilities and evaluate the viability of potential use cases and applications

  • Support business development opportunities as a technical resource alongside subject matter experts from Consulting, Assurance, and Tax service lines

  • Contribute to practice development and thought leadership to support EY’s position as a leader in the Blockchain space

  • Assess client business models and identify new revenue opportunities within the context of brand, market, user, financial, and technology constraints

Skills and attributes for success

  • You’re an innovator. You keep up to date on emerging technologies (especially blockchain) and are constantly thinking about potential applications.

  • You’re a people developer. You find and cultivate talent to achieve outstanding results. You give your team creative freedom to innovate while holding them accountable for making good decisions and delivering results.

  • You’re focused on customer value. You don’t blindly implement specs, and actively talk to customers and stakeholders to design solutions to their problems.

  • You’re comfortable with ambiguity. In fact, you thrive in the face of complex problems with no obvious solutions.

  • You’re entrepreneurial at heart. You have a passion for making your ideas a reality, building prototypes and ultimately launching production-scale solutions in the market.

To qualify for the role, you must have

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related field

  • 10+ years of professional engineering experience with 5+ years of people management experience

  • Hands-on experience with modern full-stack JavaScript development including Node.js and frameworks such as React and Express

  • Experience designing and implementing RESTful and/or GraphQL APIs

  • Experience building cloud native/microservices architecture applications and platforms

  • Experience with Agile software development (like Scrum or Kanban)

  • Knowledge of professional software engineering practices and the full software development life cycle, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations

  • Proven experience in project management of complex deliverables

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills

  • Valid driver’s license in the US; willingness and ability to travel to meet client needs

Ideally, you’ll also have

  • Passion for blockchain technology and experience with Ethereum, Quorum, and/or Solidity

  • Experience with containerization technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes

  • Previous experience deploying and configuring environments using infrastructure-as-code provisioning tools like Terraform and Ansible

  • Experience with traditional enterprise technologies including SaaS and ERP systems (like SAP)

  • Experience managing customer-facing engineering teams

What we look for

We strongly value diversity and inclusion. Your energy for new challenges and your interest in growth is more important than any specific skills or other attributes. If you read through the qualifications and felt discouraged from applying because you dont check all the boxes, even though you think this might be a job you would love, please apply anyway. None of us had all these skills when we started here, and we value your ability to learn, grow, and work with others more than any pre-conceived notion of the kind of person who should fill these roles.

What working at EY offers

We offer a competitive compensation package where you’ll be rewarded based on your performance and recognized for the value you bring to our business. In addition, our Total Rewards package includes medical and dental coverage, pension and 401(k) plans, and a wide range of paid time off options. Under our flexible vacation policy, you’ll decide how much vacation time you need based on your own personal circumstances. You’ll also be granted time off for designated EY Paid Holidays, Winter/Summer breaks, Personal/Family Care, and other leaves of absence when needed to support your physical, financial, and emotional well-being.

Plus, we offer:

  • Continuous learning: You’ll develop the mindset and skills to navigate whatever comes next.

  • Success as defined by you: We’ll provide the tools and flexibility, so you can make a meaningful impact, your way.

  • Transformative leadership: We’ll give you the insights, coaching and confidence to be the leader the world needs.

  • Diverse and inclusive culture: You’ll be embraced for who you are and empowered to use your voice to help others find theirs.
