Lead and grow a passionate and dedicated team of software developers
Support the work of over 7,000 for-purpose organisations across Australia
Help us to change the world, one job at a time
(Potential for this role to be combined with currently advertised Technical Lead role)
EthicalJobs.com.au is working to change the world, one job at a time.
We bridge the gap between thousands of not-for-profit organisations that strive to make our world a better place, and millions of passionate, values-driven people who want to “work for a better world”.
As a for-profit social enterprise and one of Australia’s top job-search sites for the not-for-profit sector and beyond, our platform supports the work of more than 7,000 for-purpose organisations around the country, and has a passionate community of 320,000+ unique users using the site each month. And our team and our platform are both growing fast!
You’ll be joining a friendly, passionate and successful team of 33 people who share a vision of a more equitable, just and sustainable world.
When we’re not working from home (as we are for the moment) our spacious office is just off Smith St in Collingwood, including a large outdoor deck for lunch in the sun and drinks after work, and great food and coffee just around the corner.
As Software Engineering Manager, you'll be responsible for leading, growing and managing an effective and high performing engineering team (currently 6 people) that delivers value to our customers and users.
You’ll be accountable for the team’s delivery of projects, application support and supervision of activities undertaken by the engineering team.
You’ll work closely with our Head of Product, Technical Lead and business stakeholders to ensure deliverables are fit for purpose, align to technology strategic roadmaps and are able to meet defined requirements.
You’ll build relationships with other managers, to share ideas and best practice, as well as maintain close alignment with others in the organisation.
Through your evolving understanding of our products and services, you’ll help the organisation reach its strategic priorities.
You’ll measure your success by your team delivering valuable high-quality solutions quickly and consistently.
Finally, you’ll be accountable for day-to-day management of 6 software engineers, including their productivity and professional development, as well as recruiting and onboarding new team members – we have plans to recruit up to 6 additional new team members in 2022.
** While primarily a line management role, we’re very open to exploring the addition of technical leadership and/or hands-on (coding) responsibilities for candidates with suitable experience. Please refer to our Tech Lead role currently being advertised.
With a background in software development, you’re an experienced leader of people: you’ve led small or medium sized teams, ideally in a SaaS company, and have worked closely with Product Managers and Designers. You’re also very familiar with Agile/Scrum principles.
You have demonstrable experience in guiding your team to achieve and sustain a high performing standard and are vested in building a great team culture. You weave your business acumen into daily conversations with technical team members to aid in their understanding and appreciation of business value, context and prioritisation.
You care: you want your team to succeed, your users and customers to benefit from the service you provide and the organisation as a whole to exceed its goals.
Finally, you’re someone who’s passionate about making a difference and “working for a better world”, and you’re excited about the work EthicalJobs.com.au does!
