Senior Engineering Manager

Prague

On a typical day, you will …

You will be expected to support a recently established team of engineers in their day to day development experience, their personal development, and long term career growth.

  • You will lead 5 to 6 engineers within a product team, which owns a core part of Productboard.
  • You will ensure goals and objectives for the team are clearly defined and engineers can participate in the product discovery phase.
  • You will coach and mentor your engineers, showing them the next steps in their careers.
  • Together with the CTO, Director and other EMs you will discuss, define and implement processes to support a growing team (feedback, growth, team organisation, delivery process).
  • You will maintain a healthy, collaborative culture in line with the company values as we navigate through hyper-growth. 
  • You will be actively involved in hiring engineers for your team, making sure it’s well-staffed.
  • Personally being the strongest engineer in the team is not your end goal, your main focus is to have a multiplying effect on the team's output.
  • To get a better idea of our vision of the role, read the “Role of Management” in the article about Empowered Product Teams from Marty Cagan.
