Engineering Manager at Peakon
Copenhagen, DK

Description

We’re a team driven by the belief that we can radically change the world of work. We believe – and hear from our customers every day – that when an organisation understands itself better, it can create more fulfilling jobs, and grow in ways never before imagined.

Enterprises big and small trust our products to provide visibility and clarity in areas once characterised by hearsay and uncertainty. With the insights delivered by Peakon, these organisations become more agile, responsive, and able to make the changes and investments that their employees care about most.

We’re in the business of creating great places to work, and we strive our utmost to practice what we preach to our customers. With ambitions as big as ours, we see individual growth and development as the key strategy for growing our business.

Trust and transparency guide everything we do here. You’ll find an open salary model, unlimited vacation, minimal hierarchy, and maximum freedom to develop and execute your own ideas. Our style of collaboration is based on honesty and friendship, and we always love making new friends...

Responsibilities

As the Peakon engineering team grows, we are looking for an Engineering Manager to lead a cross-functional feature team. Together with the product manager, you will prioritise and scope projects for the team. Your responsibility is the quality and timely delivery of these projects. To achieve this, you will work closely with the team to prioritize efforts, facilitate collaboration, and remove obstacles.

You will be responsible for coaching and growing the engineers on the team, as well as hiring and on-boarding new team members.

In addition to supporting the team, you will be contributing code regularly and participate in the day to day work by providing constructive feedback, participating in code reviews and architectural discussions regarding new features and products.

Our tech

The tech stack of Peakon centers around JavaScript, with Node on the server and React/Redux combo on the frontend. We believe there is great value in a shared toolchain across the stack, enabling engineers to work on all parts of the system. Some tasks are better solved with different tools, and thus we use f.ex. Python for the data science parts of the system.

We rely heavily on automated testing on all levels of the application, with thousands of tests checking every commit to our code base. We use CircleCI for hosted continuous integration to make sure our most recent changes are always available to test and we deploy code to the production environment on a daily basis.

Requirements

You are an engineer at heart, with a genuine interest in technology and people. You prefer the challenge, and reward, of working with a team towards a common goal, rather than trying to reach it alone.

As a leader, you value trust, transparency and accountability. You are passionate about leading an inclusive and diverse team and set them up for success. You are able to clearly communicate expectations, and are quick to recognize when someone goes above and beyond to deliver a great result.

As part of a fast-paced organization, you are able to adapt and identify opportunities for yourself and your team. Identifying ways to develop people and processes excite you, and you are capable of independently driving change.

Also, you have:

    Demonstrated ability leading cross-functional teams to deliver high quality solutions on time
    5+ years of experience working as a software engineer (preferably Javascript)
    Experience designing and implementing complex web applications
    Experience hiring great developers and onboarding them effectively
    Empathy and open mind, ability to adapt your leadership style to the individual and a task at hand
    Drive to better not only themselves, but also everyone around them

We welcome your application even if you do not meet all of the criteria listed above, but are excited about the challenge of mastering this role. We know that skills are not static and growth is continuous, so we are excited to help you take your career to the next level at Peakon!
