Engineering Manager, Retain & Grow

Hearsay Systems is looking for a talented Engineering Manager with a technical background to join our engineering team to lead one of our Retain & Grow scrum teams! 

As the manager of this team, you will manage project goals, contribute to product strategy, and lead the design, build, and deployment of systems across our stack. We care deeply about our people and expect our managers to hire, retain, mentor and grow their teams -- but we’re a small, fast-moving company and need managers who have the technical chops to roll up their sleeves and deploy code too.

Hearsay’s Retain & Grow solutions leverage Hearsay's omnichannel communication capabilities and powerful journey engine to drive business outcomes specific to financial services sub-verticals (wealth, property and casualty insurance, etc.) via client engagement. Our team is hyper-focused on building advisor-client relationships to increase client retention rates and grow the advisor’s business with every client. In addition to driving the client retention and client growth portion of the advisor-client engagement lifecycle, Retain & Grow is the primary owner of Hearsay’s 1:1 client engagement capabilities, including texting, voice, direct messaging, and other communication channels.

Hearsay is used by more than 170,000 financial advisors and insurance agents. Our clients include Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase, Prudential, New York Life and Allstate. We enable them to get a real-time pulse of field conversations and to trigger more effective targeted advisor-client outreach with AI-optimized calls, text messages, email follow-ups, and social media interactions.
