Superside is looking for an Engineering Manager to lead a forward-thinking tech team and help us build the platform for modern creative work.

We’re a tech-enabled creative company that focuses on enabling Creative as a service to an entirely new scale. As part of our Project Hub team, you’ll get to make an impact on our product by crafting a work environment where your team can innovate and challenge the status quo while building a platform that changes our users' working experience.

Engineering Manager
What you'll be doing

What you'll be doing

  • Provide leadership and guidance to the cross-functional teams on their projects
  • Coach, mentor and guide the team through their career paths
  • Collaborate with the product managers and product designers on the product roadmap
  • Facilitate openness and knowledge sharing across the engineering team
  • Introduce new ways of working that benefit both individuals and the team
  • Be the go-to resource for best engineering practices

Our biggest challenge right now

Being a fully‌‌ ‌‌remote‌‌ ‌‌scale-up, we have a people-first approach as opposed to a structured, corporate approach. As we constantly redefine the scope of the team based on our needs, this role calls for the ability to be flexible and agile in order to keep up with the fast-paced environment.
Our Engineering Managers need to adapt to various situations and contexts to grow their teams without losing our culture of openness and knowledge sharing. We’re looking for leaders who are active problem solvers, independent and who will step in and take initiative, supporting their teams to achieve Superside’s vision.

  • Experience building teams from the ground up is a bonus (a big plus if in a product-focused, people-First tech company)
  • Knowledge of agile practices
  • Ability to challenge the decisions of senior leadership
  • Excellent English verbal and written communication skills
