Engineering – Engineering /
We are on a mission to liberate businesses and people to do their best work.

We are an ambitious, international team with more than 30 nationalities represented today. We believe that people do their best work when they’re given the freedom to thrive and grow. Thinking big, bringing a positive attitude, and taking full ownership are three characteristics that thread our team together.

Founded in 2016 Spendesk today serves thousands of businesses in Europe and the US, and we recently raised €100m in a Series C funding round. Our team of 350+ Spendeskers, is spread across four offices in Paris, Berlin, London and San Francisco, alongside many teammates working remotely from various cities in Europe.

And we're growing fast. Come join us!

As an Engineering Manager, your main focus is to grow the people in your care into better engineers while delivering the best features for our users. To do this, you’ll mentor your team to deliver high-quality work, make the right trade-off to send the right product to the market at the right time and collaborate with the other squads to ensure a good alignement in the team from a product and a technical perspective.
As Spendesk wants to offer employees an environment where they can grow and thrive, you’ll spend a lot of time mentoring individuals in your team and empowering your most senior reports to help you in that mission. Part of the individual growth is the regular reviews process where you’ll be able to make deep feedback and optimise individual and team performance.

You’ll handle regular 1:1s and performance reviews with the developers, meaning you will follow projects closely and be involved in the daily work with everyone. Keeping a high level of confidence from the team is key to get proper feedbacks and improve the communication.

As a good personal organisation is really important to keep the productivity high, you’ll have a project management responsibility, meaning that even if developers should be able to manage their own tasks and roadmaps, it’s up to you to make sure it’s done correctly.

You’ll also be responsible of resourcing, interviewing and building talent for our squads.
