Head of Engineering

RemoteNetherlands, Zuid-Holland, Den HaagEngineering

Job description

Read our general introduction first if you haven't yet.


You’ll start with 10 direct reports, and the assignment to practically double that within a year. Most of your time will go to your people, existing and new. Helping them feel challenged, motivated and supported. And of course finding new colleagues that help us grow and diversify! You might find some time to get acquainted with the stack, by solving bugs or improving tooling outside of the hot path. But solving technical problems won’t be your main business.

You are expected to be the main bridge with other disciplines, first and foremost with Product. You’ll team up with Casper, our Head of Product often to continously improve our delivery practices and you’ll report to our CTO Tino. Your main two responsibilities will be the organisation of the engineering team and the execution of development. For the former you’ll have your own budget, and you can make the decisions on how to set up and staff the teams. For the latter you are expected to ensure that high-quality software is delivered in a sustainable and timely manner, and that the teams continuously improve their processes.

Compensation

The envisioned salary range for this position is €70k-€100k per year (excluding 8% holiday pay), depending on experience. Besides that we offer Stock Appreciation Rights and a 4% learning budget. You’ll get an Apple Macbook Pro (M1) to work on.

Job requirements

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for someone with experience managing multiple teams. Whether that’s 3 or 10, you know how to head other managers, how to make growth plans and how to scale an engineering organisation whilst keeping quality, delivery speed and engineering happiness high.

Requirements

  • You have experience managing multiple teams, and you can show that you are good at it. (Yes we’ll ask for references!)
  • You are well-versed enough in Python, Java, PHP, Go or the like that you can set up interview processes, update engineering ladders and to be in the know of what is happening.
  • You have experience in hiring people.
  • You live in The Netherlands or close enough that you can be in the office a couple times each quarter.
  • You care about agile processes and continuous improvement through responsible experimentation.
  • Experience setting up and/or maintaining a progression framework for engineers. Or iterating on performance evaluation processes.
