Platform Engineering Manager

ADP - New York, NY

ADP is hiring an Engineer Manager.

  • Are you inspired by transformation and making an impact on the lives of millions of people every day, even when it's messy?
  • Are you empathic to client needs, the people you lead, and internal partners to drive success but can make the hard calls and are not afraid to make bold moves?
  • Are you a technologist first and foremost who approaches every problem wearing that hat while going out of your way to champion creativity and build diverse, productive, and engaged teams?

Well, this may be the role for you. Ready to design what's next?

In this role, you will lead a team of software engineers who build and maintain microservices and features within Lifion by ADP's human capital management platform to help our customers save time, stay compliant, and manage their workforce. No two days are alike. You will spend your time checking in with your team, stateside or abroad. You will facilitate the team's work through coaching and guidance and provide leadership with realistic expectations and deadlines. You will be the final set of eyes to review code for quarterly initiatives and manage ad-hoc requests as they arise. You'll be accountable for something significant: the uncompromising quality of products that impact people's lives.

To thrive in this role, you'll need a solid understanding of software development at scale, including knowledge of functional programming, JavaScript, cloud services, relational databases, Elasticsearch, Redis, DynamoDB, Aurora, Kinesis, SQS, and microservice architectures. Your ability to communicate clearly and effectively will keep the team informed of company-wide initiatives and leaders comfortable with the team's progress. Team collaboration and exchange of ideas are central to projects here. You will be a role model for motivating yourself and the team to maintain positive momentum and energy. Pace does not scare you. Everyone can lose the big picture from time to time, but you're the team leader who helps everyone find it again and deliver.

Here's what you can expect on a typical day:

  • Drive cultural change and transformation. Lead, inspire and engage a team as you continue to transform, develop, design, and deliver our next-generation platform to clients.
  • Build teams that thrive. As an experienced leader, you want everyone to shine. You'll start each day by checking in with your engineering team to identify priorities and challenges. You'll find a way to make the team's day go smoother. You are constantly looking for ways to share your knowledge, motivate others and keep everyone engaged and productive.
  • Build Products. You will use your technical expertise to review your team's work and help your people excel in an Agile environment. You're proactive and hands-on. When you see a potential issue, you never leave things hanging and unfinished. When you and your team deliver a finished product, it's as polished as you could make it.
  • Variety of work. There is no typical day. You could be checking in with a team in India one minute, meeting with leadership to review initiatives for the coming quarter later and tomorrow handling a few ad hoc requests from your peers in other departments.
  • Influence and inspire confidence. You are comfortable presenting to senior leaders, product owners, and peers with a compelling voice that you demonstrate through executive presence, leading change, and creating clear executive-level communications on milestone achievements.
  • You have 2-5 years of experience in relevant skills gained and developed in the same or similar role.

  • Prior experience in node js or programming languages like GO, java,c#, ruby, python; backend workflows and ETL systems; Kafka and messaging will give you extra comfort in this role to be successful.


  • Have courageous team collaboration. Courage comes from how associates are willing to have difficult conversations, speak up, be an owner, and challenge one another's ideas to find the best solution.
  • Deliver at epic scale. We deliver real user outcomes using strong judgment and good instincts. We're obsessed with the art of achieving simplicity with a focus on client happiness and productivity.
  • Be surrounded by curious learners. We align ourselves with other smart people in an environment where we grow and elevate one another to the next level. We encourage our associates to listen, stay agile, and learn from mistakes.
  • Act like an owner & doer. Mission-driven and committed to leading change, you will be encouraged to take on any challenge and solve complex problems. No tasks are beneath or too great for us. We are hands-on and willing to master our craft.
  • Give back to others. Always do the right thing for our clients and our community and humbly give back to the community where we live and work. Support our associates in times of need through ADP's Philanthropic Foundation.
  • Join a company committed to equality and equity. Our goal is to impact lasting change through our actions.
