Are you passionate about building products?

We're looking for an Engineering Manager to lead a team of developers in Sydney. You’ll work as part of a high-energy team delivering incredible, creative improvements for our customers and team operations. You'll also use your analytical skills to make sure we're solving the right problems, and work closely with design and product management to influence the direction of the product and plan the steps to get there.

You'll be responsible for building an effective team, empowering them to achieve their goals, and putting those goals into a broader context. Your greatest responsibility will be looking after the individuals reporting to you – mentoring and supporting them in their professional development, unlocking their potential, and challenging them to step outside their comfort zone to grow and excel.

On your first day, we'll expect you to have:

  • Significant experience with building large scale web software
  • Experience managing a team of developers
  • Familiarity with agile software development methodologies
  • Ability to drive technical decisions, customer-focused innovation, quality and outcomes
  • Strong organization and interpersonal skills
  • A track record of execution and delivering results

It's great if you have:

  • Employee performance & growth management
  • Experience with large scale distributed systems
  • Continuous delivery
