Engineering Manager - Own technical strategy | Scale the engineering team | Manage Managers


Up to £120,000 per annum plus 15% bonus

Are you a skilled hands-on Engineering Manager who is ready to make the next step in their career and manage managers?

Do you have strong hands-on skills, with the knowledge to shape the technical strategy and ensure engineering excellence in your teams?

Engineering Manager - A very successful software company with a market leading product are looking for an Engineering Manager to work closely with the CTO, scaling the engineering team and driving their ambitious plans. The Engineering Manager will grow the team from its current 14 Software Engineers to 25 in the coming months with a view to managing 4 Team Leads, supporting and challenging them to deliver outstanding solutions. The Engineering Manager will drive the technical and product roadmap with the CTO so you will need to be comfortable leading technical discussions and designing/architecting solutions in conjunction with the leadership team. The current platform used to be a Ruby monolith but over the last couple of years this has been broken down and is now largely based on Clojure microservices.

What will the Engineering Manager do?

  • Lead the technical strategy, in conjunction with the CTO, and drive innovative solutions that deliver value to their customers.
  • Grow the Engineering team, so experience hiring Software Engineers will be important.
  • Line manage the Software Engineering Leads to ensure delivery and software engineering excellence throughout the team.
  • You should be comfortable working at a code level with the Software Engineers, capable of reviewing code and advising them.

What projects will the Engineering Manager lead?

  • Move from an on-premise solution to Cloud (AWS/GCP).
  • Shape the product for international expansion considering security and data-localisation.
  • Segmenting and tailoring the product for different budgets - SME v FTSE 100.
  • Adding more functionality to the product - New metrics, single sign-on, introducing storybook on the front end.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a technically hands-on line manager to take the next step in their career and start managing managers… It is a career defining role! Please reply with your CV or call Simon Evans for an informal chat.
