We are looking for a Software Engineering Manager who wants to lead outstanding engineering teams towards successful, transparent and predictable delivery of bespoke software within the insurtech domain.

Who are we?

We are a remote-first boutique software house company formed by a group of seasoned software experts (the average experience in the team is 12 years). What connected all of us, despite a long-term relationship, is a passion for building Great Software that matters. We believe in people, and our engineers have a real and direct impact on what and how we build things. We put extra effort into ensuring everyone can make a difference and grow among other experts.

Values we stand for:

  • Getting things done: we are laser-focused on achieving business outcomes in a predictable manner.
  • Built on trust: we are laser-focused on achieving business outcomes in a predictable manner.
  • Baking quality in: we take pride in our craftsmanship and guarantee quality results at every stage.
  • Winning together: partnership and teamwork are at the heart of how we operate.

This offer is for you if:

  • have a minimum of 3 years of experience in a leadership role
  • have a minimum of 5 years of hands-on experience in a software engineering team
  • have experience managing senior/staff software engineers
  • are very well organised and have excellent communication and team skills
  • have a track record in large-scale projects that span across multiple teams and localizations
  • are passionate about nurturing relationships, growing people and leading towards success
  • have experience in lean methodologies
  • have a track record of successful project delivery
  • have a Kaizen mindset and believe continuous improvement is not a job but a habit
  • present excellent stakeholder management skills and a track record of successful collaboration with senior managers, including status, roadmap and long-term strategy presentations
  • understand the modern approach to software engineering (you should be familiar with concepts like continuous delivery, domain-driven design, event storming, event-driven architecture, but do not have to be an expert)
  • value-based leadership is not a slogan for you, but a practical way of working
  • have excellent English skills, both written and spoken (C1+)
  • want to ship Great Software that makes a difference

As a part of the team you will:

  • lead the team towards successful project delivery by connecting the business and tech worlds
  • be a role model and a servant leader for the team with an org-wide perspective
  • manage projects, get the high-level forecasts right, build a solid plan and remove roadblocks on the way
  • manage and nurture good relationships with key stakeholders and act as a strong partner that ensures business needs are met
  • collaborate with client’s Delivery Managers on business priorities negotiation and high-level project planning
  • identify, communicate and mitigate project risks, navigate ambiguity and set a clear vision
  • create outstanding and meaningful delivery reports
  • facilitate effective meetings and cultivate continuous improvement in the team
  • capture meaningful team metrics that help the team maintain high throughput, optimise internal processes, and make data-driven decisions
  • lead the team and help team members grow both professionally and personally
  • manage Team Leaders by actively supporting and coaching them

What do we offer?

  • remote first work environment (or you can work from our office in Wrocław if you fancy ;-)
  • working environment with experienced, self-driven contributors
  • ability to participate in international projects
