Engineering Manager

Job Description

Recognized as one of Britain's fastest growing private tech companies, who are also the world's largest online platform specialising in used photography and videography equipment, this is an opportunity for an experienced Engineering Manager to join the expanding team in Brighton.

Salary: up to £90k+ benefits

Hybrid working: 2 days a week in the office on the seafront in the heart of Brighton.

As Engineering Manager, you will be responsible for building and leading a team of up to 15 engineers across a variety of disciplines. You don't have to be technically hands on, you just need to be technical enough to unblock the team and come from a technical background. The current tech stack is Python, JavaScript and Test Automation.

Day to day you will be:

  • Developing individual career plans and inspiring your team to invest in their career.
  • Help manage capacity for individual team members and resolve delivery issues/blockers quickly and effectively
  • Ensure performance feedback is provided consistently and regularly
  • Leading and driving delivery of strategic projects across the department
  • Help foster a culture of collaboration and innovation

To be successful you will have experience providing either direct line management or mentoring a team of engineers, have a good understanding of current engineering development techniques and be a clear advocate for continuous improvement. It would also be beneficial having previously worked in an agile environment and be an advocate of this, whilst having a genuine passion for helping engineers grow and deliver their best work!

If you're ready to join a rapidly growing technology company and take on a challenging role, I would love to hear from you!
