Engineering Manager

What we do and why we're looking for you

Despite the name, we’re not a bank. We’re building productivity tools for small businesses and accountants. Our founders claim we’re one of the fastest growing startups in Europe and looking at the stats we believe them.

We're proud of the way we work and of our values – we care deeply about quality and sane development practices. We also strive for simplicity and pragmatism.

Architecture & Stack

Our systems are mostly done using Ruby on Rails. We use Python for machine learning. We have a large web app, a few smaller ones, a few mobile apps (Android and iOS), a growing fleet of services (in the sense of Service-Oriented Architecture) talking via RabbitMQ

Team, Challenges & You

The development team is mostly in Bulgaria. Because we’re a remote company we have people in Sofia, Plovdiv, Burgas, Varna, Ruse. Everyone can choose where to work from. However, if you need to socialize in a face-to-face manner - we have a nice, spacious office in the centre of Sofia (near National Palace of Culture).

We have reasonable processes, organised Kanban boards, stand-ups that don’t last more than 10 minutes and product owners writing detailed (sometimes a bit too detailed) specifications. We value highly the quality of the code and good practices. We’ve suffered enough without them. Our management is well aware of that. We’ve even had the need to explain that we don’t need so much time for paying back technical debt. Some of us even talk about those things (code reviews, automated testing, refactoring).


What we'll expect if you join our team

  • Be an excellent engineer and often get your hands dirty and leading through example
  • Manage Kanban boards and apply the same quality to task definitions as you would to code
  • Constantly try to level up engineers and QAs in the team by mentoring and coaching.
  • Work with Product Managers, Designers and UX Researchers to flesh out ideas into actionable work
  • Understand how your piece of the product fits into the broader company strategy

What do we seek

Our ideal candidate is someone who shares our love of quality and doing things the right way. Writing tests, structuring the abstractions cleanly and polishing the code until it shines should be their desire. We’re looking for good and experienced leaders, who are not afraid to learn new things and work on hard problems. If this sounds interesting and you think we might “click”, get in touch with us.

Requirements

  • 4+ experience in engineering management
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Ability to clearly explain and justify ideas when faced with competing alternatives
  • Ability to communicate and apply common architectural design patterns across a wide range of technical problems
  • Proficiency in the Agile development life cycle like Kanban and Scrum methodologies
  • Bachelor’s degree in computer science or equivalent experience

Benefits

We offer our Bulgaria-based team an employer-paid additional medical insurance, life and risk insurance, and a corporate discount for a MultiSpot Card. The team gets together for monthly team drinks and an off-site somewhere beautiful twice a year. Between countless group outings to talks, outdoor events, movies and more, you'll be sure to find your niche.
