Engineering Manager

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Impact

As an Engineering Manager you are responsible for a Product-Engineering tribe, leading Engineers across multiple product-delivery squads. In cooperation with Product Managers and Lead Engineers you identify high-value deliverables, you supervise project scope and ensure that technical deliverables are met.

As an independent and true leader, you communicate expectations clearly to all team members - soliciting and delivering individual feedback often - and you are a star in stakeholder management.

You are the type of person who has a higher overview but knows what’s happening on the ground. You're not expected to write code on a day-to-day basis. You do however, have a strong technical background and understand the applications and products you lead well enough to contribute to the architecture and product vision. You collect information about areas of technical debt, carry out cost/benefit analysis for resolving it, and communicate suggested timelines to the Product and Engineering teams in order to do so.

In return, you’ll gain access to one of the most fun, open, and ambitious groups of people working in Amsterdam. We push each other to be our ultimate best and are the kind of company that will make you feel happy getting out of bed to come to work every morning.

  • Lead a team of Lead Engineers and Software Engineers (10+ people);
  • Building high performance, high-velocity squads, measuring and iterating on processes as we grow and evolve as a business;

  • Set goals and directions for teams and team members, based on top-down goals & objectives and tracks progress against them;
  • Have 1-on-1’s with direct reports (Lead Engineers) and have regular check-ins with all tribe members;
