Engineering Manager - London - CONTRACT

Exciting opportunity for an Engineering Manager / Dev Manager to join and lead a number of multidiscipline engineering teams (Java, React, DevOps, AWS) within a wider engineering department of approx. 300 at one of the country's largest online retail companies, working closely with the Principal Engineers, Heads of Engineering and Product Owners to deliver cutting edge, open source, high profile, customer facing products.

The successful Engineering Manager should come from a strong technical background (any/all of Java, JavaScript, React, DevOps, AWS) and although this is not a hands on coding role, you must be technical enough to challenge the engineers you lead, be involved in architecture conversations, code reviews, etc as well as planning, estimations, mentoring, hiring.

The ideal Engineering Manager will have a strong understanding of Agile and DevOps practices (TDD/BDD, XP, Scrum, KanBan, Lean, CI/CD, containerisation, etc.) and fit in well within a mature and pragmatic Agile and DevOps culture in an organisation that fully embraces these practices.

The company is currently going through a transformation from a retail/ecommerce organisation into an opensource tech company and they're looking for someone passionate about technology to join them and help drive this journey.

Key Skills:

  • Leadership, Mentoring, Growth, Planning and Line Management
  • Strong knowledge of software design and architecture
  • Excellent grasp of best practices such as TDD/BDD
  • Agile (KanBan, Scrum, Lean, XP, SAFe, LeSS, CI)
  • DevOps, Continuous Deployment, Containerisation
  • Technical background in Java, React, JavaScript, DevOps, Cloud
  • Removing blockers, empowering engineers
  • Senior stakeholder management
  • Driving development of high profile, scalable, customer facing open source products

If you're looking to join a well-respected, high profile name within eCommerce to build, shape, transform and lead teams of multidiscipline engineers, with a changing technology organisation, then please apply for this advert and I'll be in touch with more detail.
