Job Description

In the late 19th century, during the height of the Industrial Revolution, the world witnessed a profound transformation in both technology and society. Engineers like Isambard Kingdom Brunel and George Stephenson were at the forefront of this change. They were not merely builders but visionaries who sculpted the very arteries of modern commerce. Their work reshaped landscapes and redefined the possibilities of industrial design. These engineers contributed to a world where infrastructure became a canvas for creativity and a catalyst for expansion. Their ability to merge innovative engineering with aesthetic appeal transformed mundane bridges and railways into iconic landmarks.

Today at Mercury, we embrace a similar blend of creativity and engineering prowess.

Here are some things you’ll do on the job:

  • Lead a team of 4 talented senior & staff frontend engineers.
  • Build and maintain the CMS for our marketing site, build new founder tools, and work on in-product customer delight experiences. 
  • Collaborate with Product and Design cross-functional partners to drive the roadmap for the team
  • Regularly meet with external stakeholders to coordinate on priorities. 
  • Foster a culture of innovation and resilience, empowering your team to deliver exceptional results.
  • Develop talent on the team and hire when needed. 
  • Be opinionated in building the team’s technical vision
  • Ensure the health of the team and the engineers

The ideal candidate for the role:

  • Have demonstrated the ability to lead a technical team.
  • Has a strategic mindset and is adept at navigating stakeholder asks and turning them into solutions
  • Is empathetic and effective in leadership; thrives on mentoring and building cohesive teams.
  • Have experience building customer-facing products
  • Have a strong individual engineering skill set. You will go through roughly the same interview process as our individual contributors, with additional interviews for manager skills
  • Have experience in react or next.js and a CMS (we use Dato) 

The total rewards package at Mercury includes base salary, equity (stock options), and benefits.

Our salary and equity ranges are highly competitive within the SaaS and fintech industry and are updated regularly using the most reliable compensation survey data for our industry.
