Overview

Our Engineering Managers are people with varying technical backgrounds and interests — some are involved in the technical details of their team and others provide general technical direction and oversight. As managers, our job is to keep teams efficient and executing on the right goals. We¬†build¬†teams¬†that are¬†inclusive,¬†helpful,¬†and have¬†a¬†strong sense of ownership¬†for the things they¬†build.
Your primary responsibility is to the people on your teams: ensuring that the members are growing as engineers, doing valuable work and generally having a great time. You’ll also have plenty of opportunity to work across the larger organisation on improvements that span the multi-disciplinary product & technology organisation.

  • Advocate and advance modern software development practices in the teams you work directly with as well across MOO.
