About the job
We are looking for an Engineering Manager to join the Front Website team!
The Front Website team is responsible for all of Scaleway’s public websites (excluding Scaleway’s console). Currently, we have six websites under our scope.
- - Main showcase website
- - Technical documentation
- - Developers documentation
- - Careers & job advertisement
- - Datacenter showcase website
- - Blog articles by Scaleway
These websites are the storefront of our company. We want our visitors to find the right information easily and have an accurate glimpse of what Scaleway has to offer. Our goal is to strengthen Scaleway’s brand with neat designs, enforce good web practices, deliver state-of-the-art navigation, and rely on data to ship meaningful features. The squad is composed of three Front-end developers, a Designer and a Product Manager.
As the Engineering Manager, you will manage both your team of engineers, and the general engineering for the team. This position is equally balanced between managerial and technical roles and skills.
You will take care of your team. You will be in charge of management tasks such as planning, following people's career, approving vacations requests, and more. An important part of the position is to improve the skills and knowledge of each member of your team by getting to know them well (strengths, limitations, and goals). Together, you will find the most efficient way of working as a team. You will also be responsible for monitoring and optimizing the velocity and delivery capacity of your team with the help of your Product Manager.
Since you’re also a developer, you will be responsible for supervising development activities. This includes making technical decisions regarding tooling, architecture, and innovation along with the team. One of your key responsibilities will be to avoid over-engineering, and always find a pragmatic approach when a technical problem arises. Indeed, managers at Scaleway usually code 50% of their time.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, you will be the facilitator of the team, providing them with everything they need to focus on their tasks, by synchronizing with the other managers of the company.
We work in a Scrum framework where the fundamentals are: two-weeks sprint, daily stand-ups, retrospectives, etc. At the end of each sprint, we present our work during demos. Communication, peer programming, and reviews are important to us.
