About the Role:

We’re looking for Software Engineering Managers to join several core teams at StockX. 

This is a great opportunity to leverage your skills, to build a world-class platform and to have a huge impact on how marketplaces can be redefined. At StockX, we're just getting started.

Your Day-to-day Will Involve

  • You’ll develop inclusive teams in which people are empowered to do the best work of their careers.

  • You may have great UI/UX instincts with the ability to identify and prioritize what’s important to end-users. 
  • You may have used the technologies in our stack, such as Python, Postgres, and Kafka.
