About Us

IZEA Worldwide, Inc. ("IZEA") is a marketing technology company providing software and professional services that enable brands to collaborate and transact with the full spectrum of today's top social influencers and content creators.

The company serves as a champion for the growing Creator Economy, enabling individuals to monetize their content, creativity, and influence. IZEA launched the industry's first-ever influencer marketing platform in 2006 and has since facilitated nearly 4 million transactions between online buyers and sellers.

Leading brands and agencies partner with IZEA to increase digital engagement, diversify brand voice, scale content production, and drive highly measurable return on investment.

IZEA is a small-cap company traded on NASDAQ and a member of the Russell 2000. The company has raised over $75 million and traded $4 billion in the past year alone. As we embark on our next phase of growth, we are looking for an exceptional Engineering Manager to join our team.

We are an equal opportunity employer and celebrate diversity in our team members.

About the Role

You will lead a global team of cross-functional engineers to deliver world-class, customer-centric digital experiences. You will also drive efficiencies in our processes, our tools, and our automations. In doing so, you will take a data-driven approach to measuring your team’s success and processes..

The team strives to be ego-free and motivated only by building the best software for our users. We seek to understand the "why" behind the "what". We regularly break out into small teams to tackle problems, learn new technologies, or just share what we know with others. We test our code and invest in the health of our systems. We push each other, learn from each other, and strive to continually grow.

IZEA is headquartered in Orlando, Florida but operates as a fully remote company with engineers located in multiple countries. Candidates must be comfortable with a remote workforce and may have to travel to Florida a few times each year.

Candidate Location

IZEA is headquartered in Orlando, Florida though the company is currently 100% remote due to COVID-19. Ideal candidates would be located in the Orlando area, or a short plane flight away. We would prefer the ability for engineering leaders to meet in person as needed in the future. Candidates must be very comfortable with a remote workforce, as all engineering personnel are currently 100% remote and living in different cities.

Due to this being a work-from-home opportunity it is posted in multiple locations, however, there is currently only one opening.

  • Proactively collaborate with product teams to resolve any blocking issues and ensure timely delivery.
  • Be an advocate for the vision of our product team.
  • Function as a scrum master for your team by facilitating daily standups, resolving blocked tasks, assisting with sprint planning and estimation, and hosting retrospectives.

We provide an open, flexible work environment that welcomes people from diverse backgrounds and viewpoints. IZEA places value on action and results. We seek individuals that thrive in a challenging and fast-evolving work environment. While the company is over 14 years old, our executives remain active player-coaches - they roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty by working side-by-side with our team members across all levels of seniority to accomplish our common goals.

IZEA is focused on promoting an inclusive environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate the different viewpoints and experiences our diverse group of team members bring to our company. If you are the very best at what you do and seeking an opportunity to attack the “never been done before” with a passionate team of dreamers and doers, we encourage you to apply.
