Job Description

Development Manager / Engineering Manager - Experienced Team Leader / Open Source Tech - Remote based - £100k + Excellent Benefits (and options)

A start-up SAAS business focusing on encrypted and decentralized messaging is going through a very exciting period of success, organic growth and client wins. As such they are looking to expand their team out further to create, enhance and evolve their current platform and services.

You will join during an exciting phase of the company growth with a new round funding scheduled for Summer 2021. There are options within the benefits package, so joining right now will be lucrative as well as a great challenge!

The job title is Engineering Manager - someone with strong Team Leadership experience - but they will still be hands-on from a coding perspective on open-source Web Applications (They use React and Typescript with a Python backend but any languages such as JavaScript, Go etc can also be considered). They will also set strategy, direction, architecture so is a very important role

You will lead a team of 6, but the recruitment roadmap shows at least 11 Engineers before the end of 2021. So experience of hiring, leading interviews, onboarding etc is important

Team Leadership is vital - having experience in leading, coaching, mentoring, leading design sessions and being the person who can overcome any potential issues. The Engineers in the team are strong, so need someone who can elevate their knowledge and expertise.

Also, to note - the Engineers are also responsible for creativity - coming up with new features, functionality and implementing it. So having a business focused mindset is really beneficial. Not someone who just wants to pop in some headphones for the whole and be given instructions.

This is a fantastic opportunity to take a step up in your career, also providing you continuous progression, to contribute to a great open-source movement, to learn about the growth of a startup and also to develop engineers further. It will be a very popular job, so apply now to avoid missing out!
