We are looking for a talented, product focused Engineering Manager to join the Emerging Products area at WeTransfer. Our focus is to test, validate and build new and innovative products leveraging the strengths we have as a business. Our focus is around building things quickly, testing and iterating to get signals from the market. Engineering Managers in our emerging products group will work with other core aspects of the business to quickly iterate on innovative ideas and products, making tradeoffs around build vs buy reducing engineering complexity and improving time to market.


What you'll be doing

  • Partner with creative and data engineering teams for testing, optimisation, reporting and insights 

  • Facilitate collaboration with other engineering teams and product managers to solve exciting and challenging problems across the Emerging Products area. 

  • Balance priorities of your teams and enable them to effectively complete long term projects while fixing bugs, managing technical debt, and offer support to the engineering organisation

  • Directly manage, mentor and coach a team of highly skilled frontend, backend and full-stack engineers

  • Set and monitor performance goals for teams and individuals, providing feedback through reviews, one-on-one’s, and regular discussions

  • Connect Emerging engineering to the rest of the business by clearly communicating business goals to your engineering teams, as well as technical solutions to stakeholders


What we are looking for 

  • Experience in encouraging a healthy engineering culture in an agile environment

  • A passionate learner who isn't afraid of new tools and technologies and loves to share their knowledge and experience.

  • Enthusiasm for both what we build and how we build it

  • Deep knowledge of security, performance and the accessibility of web based products

  • Experience in leading, managing, coaching and mentoring software engineers towards delivering high quality, high availability software

  • Experience overseeing the implementation of software for scale using design patterns that reduce waste and improve delivery

  • Experience of testing and rolling out robust software solutions

  • Keen sense of modern technology trends and experience working with modern frameworks and services

  • Someone who values open and honest communication and good teamwork to achieve a shared vision

  • Experience in process implementation and in actively challenging engineers to produce meaningful products

  • Affinity for excellent design and user experience

  • Broad technical and creative interests (we'd love to see any side projects you enjoy)

  • Self-directed, analytical, highly responsible and work well in a team environment

  • Strong verbal and written communications skills (English)
