We are looking for an exceptional product-minded Engineering Manager / Lead to develop first-of-a-kind blockchain-based consumer experiences that bring together leading edge strategies and technologies. This position is contract based.

In this role, you will help create inspiring new possibilities, tackle unsolved problems, and develop groundbreaking products in an exciting new space. You will work with a passionate and committed team, while exercising autonomy and ownership over your work.

At Axiom Zen, every one of us shares a common vision: to create the future we want to live in. We need the right people to help us realize that vision.

What we’ll accomplish together:
Developing first-of-a-kind dApp on the Ethereum blockchain.
Work with product leads and design leads to ensure the roadmap is aligned with engineering requirements, features have correct specifications, and appropriate user stories are created.
Determine the technical stack required and identify areas of constraints early in development.
Plan sprints in advance and pre-determine possible edge cases to be resolved.
Define, scope, estimate, and lead the engineering team to ensure the development issues are done well and on time.
Resolve bottlenecks and edge cases by making technical decisions and ensuring the product team is aware of the implications.
Ensure any technical debt is tracked, managed, and resolved efficiently.
Assist in mentoring other developers, ensure all team members are aligned on the technical path forward, and champion a positive team morale.
Close the gap between technical and non-technical teams - explaining technical concepts to non-technical folks and translating business-oriented and strategic plans to technical folks - to ensure that everyone is aligned.

A little about you:
You have a full-stack engineering background with strong technical fundamentals.
You have experience creating technical documentation for a team, product, or service.
You have experience working directly with product teams and/or product experience.
You have experience in blockchain.
You have experience with project management and agile workflows.
You are comfortable with trying out new tools, failing fast, and navigating unknowns.
You are a strong communicator that can work together with design, product, engineering, and marketing teams.

Bonus points if you have the following:
Back-end, front-end, blockchain, mobile, and/or DevOps development experience.
Experience working as a scrum master.
