Easy Agile is looking for an Engineering Manager to grow our engineering team. We build software for agile teams at over 1,700 global companies like Netflix, NFL, Disney, Lego, EA, Mercedes, Dell and Twitter. We live our values and want someone to help us continue to punch above our weight as we scale. Is this the role for you?
We did a search and found over 1,000 Engineering Manager roles in NSW, so instead of writing you a laundry list of what we want, we chose to share with you why being the first Engineering Manager at Easy Agile is an amazing opportunity:
As our first-ever Engineering Manager hire, your role requires smarts - leading, building and growing a truly world-class engineering culture. Our Product and Engineering teams doubled in size in the last year to 15 people and we see that growth continuing as we strive to meet customer demand.
You’ve consciously chosen the people management track vs the technical path for your career and are driven by enabling others through your leadership (although you are a software engineer at heart). You understand the value of a strong, balanced and inclusive engineering culture aiming for a sustainable pace.
You love leading by example, consistently improving how you work and sharing what you learn with the team. Your dream job is annihilating red tape, legacy systems and sacred cows. You value collaboration over confrontation as you know big company goals cannot be achieved by individuals. You love advocating for the engineering experience, ensure we prioritise tech enablers, help the team avoid rabbit holes and make effective decisions.
You are genuinely passionate about mentoring, coaching and empowering your team members to do their best work and enabling them to punch above their weight. You naturally gravitate towards an empathetic leadership style. You are genuinely excited about hanging out and building lasting friendships with team members.
You love change and have a hunger to research and experiment with new ways of working. Finally, you understand that our customers' success is our success.
If you are excited about this role but not sure if you meet all of the criteria, please apply. Research shows women and minority groups are less likely to apply for roles where they don't meet 100% of the criteria. We value punching above our weight and people over perfection, so go ahead and apply - we'd love to hear from you.
Please send an application that speaks directly to this position. There are no right answers or cookie-cutter expectations. Show us your role in Easy Agile’s future and Easy Agile’s role in yours. Address some of the work we do. Introduce yourself as a colleague. Give it a deep think and take this at your speed. We’re giving you our full attention.
All documents should be in PDF format. There’s no benefit to writing a novel. Keep it sharp, short, and get across what matters to you. We look forward to hearing from you.
