Engineering Manager

Your Role as an Engineering Manager

You will lead 6-8 ambitious software engineers as their manager and technical advisor. You will:

  • Build a fulfilling work environment for software engineers at Appsilon. Improve our engineering practices and culture.
  • Ensure successful collaboration with our clients in the projects you’re responsible for (either directly or indirectly)
    • Advise and help engineers solve challenges they encounter
    • Make sure they have everything to deliver high quality, and that they really do that
    • Mentor engineers in working with clients and leading projects
    • Supervise our work in projects led by engineers from your group
  • Help your team grow both professionally and personally, in particular by holding regular 1-on-1 meetings with engineers, where you will:
    • Set expectations, review their performance, and provide regular feedback
    • Build trusting and understanding relationships with your reports to gather feedback for yourself and the organization
    • Support and guide engineers’ career growth and personal development
    • Apply mentoring, coaching, or sponsorship, depending on what a person needs in a given situation.
  • Participate in hiring and planning
  • Grow your engineering management skills, share experience, and improve how we manage engineers and projects in the entire company.

Helpful skills and experience

  • Experience leading an engineering team as an engineering manager or a technical lead.
  • Deep understanding of how software is built and deployed, with a focus on web applications. (We don’t expect experience in any particular technology. We mostly work in R, JavaScript, React, and Python.)
  • Strong communication skills
  • Proficiency in English – you will be managing an international team
  • Passion for high-quality code and constantly improving engineering practices
  • Reliability, ability to self-organize. You know when to solve issues on your own, and when to escalate.
  • Experience in applying mentoring and coaching techniques
  • Previous experience with hands-on coding (it will dramatically improve the way you communicate, delegate, verify the code, and set expectations to your colleagues)

What we value

Excellence, innovation, responsibility, kindness, and trust are the values that we care about the most. They are also reflected in our Code of Conduct – please read it before applying.

Your Typical Week at Work

  • The tools you will see every day will be Slack, Gmail, GitHub, Clickup, and Zoom.
  • Each week you’ll have 1-1s with your group. You’ll also sync with the VP of Engineering and other engineering managers.
  • From time to time, you’ll be interviewing new candidates and onboarding new employees.
  • Software engineers will come to you with their challenges and ask you for advice.
  • You will be proactive in reviewing statuses of projects, looking into the code and pull requests to act if something should be improved.
  • Most of your time will not be spent coding, but you should code from time to time, to keep a good understanding of the engineers’ work and spot issues.

What We Offer

On top of our open, kind, and mission-driven culture, we also offer:

  • Salary 20000 – 30000 PLN + VAT on B2B contract
  • 26 Vacation Days

Our projects
