About the job

The Storage Team is a pillar of Scaleway. This team not only develops the Scaleway Elements Storage products (Block Storage), but also supports all the other Scaleway Elements products that rely on Storage (Instances, Database, Registry, Kubernetes, and more) for proper usage. In a challenging environment, and within a team that manages hundreds of storage servers across various regions, you will be responsible for developing, automating, and enhancing Scaleway’s Block Storage solution.

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 this platform.
 
As a manager, you will take care of your team. 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.
 
On top of your daily activities within your team, you will need to interact with all of Scaleway’s teams, especially Instances, Network, Hardware, and Platform. 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 ins and outs of storage technologies. Your team’s main programming languages are Golang & Python. 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.
