Overview

The T Rowe Price Investment Risk technology team is looking for a hands-on Engineering Manager or a Lead Level Software Engineer capable of managing a small team. The accomplished hire will be equally responsible for writing code, managing a small team, performing business analysis and keeping great project and agile hygiene.

We want this person to have influence over their direct reports, we absolutely do not want someone who is dictatorial. We want someone who is comfortable enough to give team members their own voice, decision making, and ability to contribute equally as a true team. If you feel uncomfortable with loads of opinions that contradict your own, this position is not for you.

Additionally, the landscape of Investment Risk comes with a wealth of nuance, legacy applications, and great aspirations. While you will be responsible for the output of your team, you will also get direction and guidelines from senior leaders. We want someone who accepts this direction as a positive, and will genuinely seek to understand strategy, being humble with their direct reports and stakeholders throughout.

We want a technologist who is able to write a unit test while coding, query an API on the side to get an idea of the analytics you're dealing with, pull up your sleeves and follow a legacy SQL query to understand the thinking in a portfolio setup, be unafraid to check the logs while doing that, and use all of that to come up with elegant code, taking the complexity in your stride? That's what we're looking for.

We want someone not just aware of, but completely at ease with SOLID/TDD principles to help modernize a legacy stack into AWS. But more than that, we want our engineers to understand risk and portfolio data in such a way that you take on ownership of the components you ship.

Our team is building a suite of next-generation n-tier, native cloud-enabled applications, fronted by a product named riskFolio. You will be leading an Agile team of smart, hardworking people whose mission is to develop new capabilities using modern cloud technologies used by our Risk Analysts, Portfolio Managers, and Quants. This is a hands-on leadership role that provides an opportunity to tackle sophisticated business, logic, data, and technical challenges. We encourage you to apply!
