About the Job

Engineering Manager are keys at Scaleway. They create the conditions for engineering teams to focus on creating a cloud that makes sense. At Scaleway, we are constantly searching for engineering management talents. If you are not sure which team would fit your profile, this is where you should apply and we will come back to you.

As an Engineering Manager, you will manage both your team of engineers, and the general engineering for the team. This position is equally balanced between managerial and technical roles and skills. All teams work with Agile methods, and often with Scrum. You will monitor collaborative projects via these platforms.

As a manager, you will take care of your team. You will be in charge of administrative tasks like planning, approving vacations requests, and more. An important part of the position is to improve the skills and knowledge of each member of your team by getting to know them well (strengths, limitations and goals). Together, you will find the most efficient way of working as a team. You will also be responsible for monitoring and optimizing the velocity and delivery capacity of your team with the help of your Product Manager.

Your goal as an EM will be to speak to the other teams and their managers to carry out your technical tasks, for instance by requesting what your team needs for its products. You need to be aware of the internals of database servers. Your team’s main programming language are Python & Golang. As an Engineering Manager you will also code, handle customer escalations from our support team, and manage the infrastructure required by the product (software upgrade & reliability).

One of your key responsibilities will be to avoid over-engineering, and always find a pragmatic approach when a technical problem arises. You won’t be a cloud user, you will be a cloud builder.

You will also be the facilitator of the team, providing them with everything they need to focus on their tasks, by synchronizing with the other managers of the company.
