You’ll also play a critical role in the org’s leadership team, working with other engineering managers, architects, product managers and program managers to steer the organisation by contributing to the strategy and helping determine the right problems for the teams to invest in solving.

On your first day, we'll expect you to have:

  • Experience managing & growing engineering managers and technical leaders
