The role is part time people manager and part time individual contributor and you will build and support a team of engineers through hiring, coaching, mentoring, and feedback. You will drive execution by organising team work, setting goals, and holding the team accountable.
In addition to your own team, you will also be contributing to and influencing the engineering organisations direction and culture with other engineering managers and directors.

Who you are
We are looking for someone who truly enjoys developing and growing people. Leadership, communication, and relationship-building skills are among your strengths. We also believe that you advocate agile software development and engineering best practices. It's important that you are curious and can adapt quickly and enjoy a dynamic and ever-changing environment.
The systems are written in Node.js and Typescript and are hosted on AWS so you are expected to be familiar with and interested in these technologies.

Most of our teams are hybrids with some members co-located in offices and some working remotely. With a remote first way of working we want you to feel productive regardless of work location!
Where? For this role, it can be within the UK or Sweden.
Working hours? We want to avoid teams distributed over time zones, so this team will operate within the CET time zone for collaboration. This setup allows us for more flexibility and work-life balance.
