Pico is making the internet a more vibrant place by empowering creators to run sustainable digital businesses. Our platform gives creators solutions they need to grow, manage, and sell directly to their audiences. We’re pushing into an exciting new chapter of growth and looking for an Engineering Manager to join our fast-growing, mission-driven team in NYC, Denver, or Remotely. As a manager in our Engineering org, you should be hungry to extend your range, driven to creatively solve problems to increase the team’s capacity, willing to get your hands dirty and join the trenches when needed, and excited to work collaboratively with both the engineering and business teams.
We believe coming up with the best solutions requires not only intelligence and empathy, but also the patience to explore, experiment, and even get things wrong every now and then. We also believe product experiences are better when they're designed and engineered by a team of people with diverse backgrounds. We encourage applications from people of all stripes, regardless of your gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, religion, age, national origin, citizenship, pregnancy status, veteran status, or whether or not you have a disability.

Why you should join us:
It's a rare opportunity to work on something you love, to have the power to improve the world around you, and to get rewarded for doing it. If making the internet a more vibrant community sounds like an interesting challenge to you, and if you’re in search of a startup that has de-risked upside and strong validation among the investor community, then working at Pico is that rare opportunity.
As an early employee, you have the chance to not just build an amazing platform, but to also help cultivate a company culture that reflects the type of community of which you want to be a part. Trust, mutual respect, and passion already run deep in our young company's DNA. Jason and Nick became friends in elementary school and started Pico several years after graduating from Stanford together. You'll fit right in if, like us, you're curious about the world, anxious to fix what's broken around you, and thoughtful about how you do it.
There's a lot of exciting work to be done to fulfill the vision and potential of Pico. Join our journey, and let's get there together.
