Engineering Manager

Technology & Product – Tech Management /
Perm - Full-time
MOO set out to shake up the world of print back in 2006. And we’ve come a long way since. Today we’re a 300 + strong team (we’re thinking of getting matching jackets) who create print and digital products for companies of all sizes – from Google and AirBnB to the guy who makes those amazing prints you found at a craft fair. 
 
Our global HQ is in London, UK, while we also have premises in Dagenham. In the US, you’ll find us in Boston, MA, as well as Lincoln, RI and Denver, CO.  

We’re making new and exciting things – and we could really do with your help. 

We’re looking for engineering managers with a technical background, that love to grow and develop people, supporting and coaching our engineers to help drive technical initiatives and improve our engineering practices. You may also help drive technical initiatives or work on improvements that span wider than your own team. 
 
As managers, our job is to help keep teams efficient and executing on the right goals. We build teams that are inclusive, helpful, and have a strong sense of ownership for the things they build. 
 
Your primary responsibility is to the people on your teams: ensuring that they are growing as engineers, doing valuable work and generally enjoying the work they do at MOO. 

What You’ll Do

    • Mentor, coach and guide the professional, technical and personal development of a group of 10+ engineer
    • Foster teams that are collaborative, inclusive, and respectful of each other.
    • Though regular 1:1’s provide continuous feedback, address underperformance, and recognise the individual strengths and contributions
    • Work with the engineers to advocate Engineering Principles and advance modern software development practices in the teams you work directly with as well as across MOO.
    • Enable tech leads through coaching, and partner effectively with product, UX design and agile delivery to ensure an appropriate balance of technical priorities. Help teams focus on delivering solutions, built the right way, and to bring delight to our customers.
    • Help teams to maintain a balance between building sustainable, high-impact products and shipping things quickly.
    • Instil a spirit of continuous improvement in the code, architecture, processes, and ways of working
    • Work closely with the talent team to attract, hire, onboard and retain high potential team members from diverse backgrounds.

About You

    • You are experienced in leading, coaching and mentoring 6+ engineers and delivering working software.
    • You love developing and growing people.
    • You believe in building both teams and products that scale. You think ahead and build for the future.
    • You enjoy working in a collaborative environment, with other Engineering Managers and can motivate and instill a strong sense of ownership in your engineers.
    • You are comfortable working in a high pace environment with a team that need to respond quickly to changing circumstances
    • You have solid experience working in a multifunctional team in an agile environment and are keen to experiment beyond basic practices and improve your team's ways of working further.
What’s it like to work at MOO? 
MOO’s the kind of workplace where you can really be yourself. Dye your hair purple. Hit the sofa with your laptop. Whatever helps you feel comfortable and happy at work. We want to help you grow in your career and set you up for success – while also recognising the importance of a healthy work/life balance.

That’s why we offer 25 days holiday rising by one day for each year here (for 5 years), a matched pension scheme, MOO’s share option scheme, and paid parental leave. We’ll offer you private healthcare, life insurance, a season ticket loan, subsidised gym membership and a cycle to work scheme. Finally, we’ll treat you to breakfast and fresh fruit every day, lunch on Fridays and all the ice cream you can eat (just watch for the brain freeze).

We are working hard to create a representative, inclusive and super-friendly team, because we know that different experiences, perspectives and backgrounds make for a better workplace. And that creates a better experience for our customers.
