Your role and the impact you'll have:

Engineering is often considered to be the heart of Getsafe and therefore we need a passionate Engineering Manager for our Manage squad to lead, inspire and support engineers and the projects they work on. You'll also work closely with product, design, data, and leadership from other departments to establish a roadmap and make sure your team is working on the most effective things to move Getsafe forward. Since you'll manage a team working on heavily customer-facing features, we want you to have a deep understanding of frontend/fullstack development so that you can effectively guide your team and advise stakeholders. You will manage approximately five frontend and backend engineers, but with your support, we expect that number to grow.


In your role we would expect you to:

  • Support software engineers at different levels on their career path
  • Manage dependencies, work closely with the product counterparts on solution planning, design and implementation (internal and external)
  • Support architectural and design decisions in the team, contribute to the priorities, lead the documentation and learnings from incidents
  • Ensure high-quality development, system reliability, and technical compliance
  • You probably won't be coding on a daily basis, but need to be ready to jump in and help your team debug and solve technical issues
  • Be involved with recruiting and hiring


About you: 

  • 5+ years of software engineering experience, including 1+ years managing or leading a team of software engineers
  • Experience mentoring and growing engineers at different levels of seniority
  • Strong architectural knowledge across different engineering disciplines (frontend and backend) derived from working on large projects
  • Hands-on experience with react, react native or rails is a plus
  • Experience building and shipping consumer-first, delightful products, with quantifiable business impact
  • "get it done" attitude with a bias toward actionself-starter with discipline for defining priorities, driving decisions & getting closure on tasks and projects


Technologies you'll work with:

  • JavaScript
  • TypeScript
  • React, React Native, Redux and Styled Components
  • Next.js and
  • Heroku
  • REST APIs powered by Ruby on Rails (you won’t work on them, but will interact with them)


Perks & Benefits:

  • Environment based on trust - Flex working hours and location (home office option)
  • Modern centric offices in Berlin, Heidelberg and London 
  • Employee participation program in the form of VSOPs
  • Individual development budget 
  • Getsafe insurance voucher for the policy of your choice
  • German and English language courses
  • Your choice of hardware
  • Regular team events
