We are a purpose-driven scale-up company and with our innovative, scalable, and modern software solution, we enable our customers to reduce the environmental impact of their products. To support our mission, we are looking for forward-thinking talented people to join our fast-growing Product & Technology team to extend our software's functionality and usability.

We're on the lookout for a passionate and experienced Software Development Manager to lead and grow our dynamic and innovative software engineering team. As a seasoned developer who has moved into a management role, you're passionate about technology and committed to delivering high-quality products that scale and are secure.

You'll have the opportunity to work alongside senior architects and analysts, leading your team in the delivery of scalable, secure, and quality products. You're experienced with our tech stack (Go, GraphQL, Neo4J, AWS, React, etc.) and have first-hand knowledge of building systems in the cloud, with... bonus points for AWS. You're as comfortable troubleshooting issues as you are managing a team event, and you thrive in a fast-paced and constantly evolving environment.

As a manager, you have experience working with remote teams, and you're comfortable tracking work activities using Jira and Agile Scrum methodologies. You'll provide servant leadership to your team, removing roadblocks, coaching and mentoring as needed, facilitating collaboration with internal customers, and helping your team to succeed.

One of the most exciting aspects of this role is the opportunity for personal and professional growth. You'll have the chance to work on challenging projects and learn new skills from senior team members. We're looking for a young, talented individual who is eager to learn, passionate about innovation, and excited to make a real impact on our company's success. If that sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you!
