The role: (responsibilities, workflows, etc)
We are looking for great engineers with leadership experience who are ready to hone their skills and apply them to new challenges. We need someone who can communicate with stakeholders, keep our company goals in mind, and understands how to contribute to them with their own team, while also having an eye for detail and leading a team of ambitious engineers through projects from start to finish.
You will have great product managers, designers, and other specialists working with you on a daily basis to help you prioritise and make decisions based on data and user research. They will rely on you to be their technical contact point and to be on top of your team's work, schedule, and understanding of technical possibilities.
You will be responsible for the well-being and productivity of your team. You will plan your team's work, keep track of progress, and report back to the heads of the product and engineering departments proactively.

About you: (knowledge, skills, approach, etc.)
You have a strong engineering background and at least some leadership experience. You have seen projects through from conception to delivery successfully. You are passionate about leadership and want to lead a talented cross-functional team and make them excel.
You want to take ownership and make a difference in a successful, bootstrapped, product-led company, iterating constantly and delivering top-quality work. You want to break down and tackle real problems and bring real value to real users.
You are proactive and speak up when you see something wrong. You never assume that "it's someone else's problem". You focus on achieving company goals together.
You are a great team-player and communicator in your own team when working with specialists like product managers when working with other teams, and with your manager and other stakeholders. You are responsive to feedback and always seek to learn and improve.
You like transparency, openness, and asking questions. Your English communication, both written and verbal, is great and you prefer to over- rather than under-communicate. You take the well-being and growth of your team seriously and want to help each team-member succeed in their role.
The technologies your team will be working with are:
- Go, PostgreSQL, Google Cloud, and a sprinkle of Ruby
If the above describes you, you might just be the perfect fit for us!
