Futureheads are currently partnered with a reputable tech start-up who operate within the healthcare space. Their service blends the best of technology with the physical world and is an established and unique offering. We are currently looking for an Engineering Manager to join and support their existing 10 skilled software engineers in their growth and help build a culture amongst the team that mirrors the strength of the brand.  

We looking to find someone who has been effective in leading and supporting a team before. This role would see a 70/30 (on average) hands off/on split, so a strong nurturer of people who can run effective pair programming and code reviews is desired. The team currently run a stack lead by Go, Node and Typescript so whilst knowledge of these would be beneficial, it is more important we find someone who shares the view that appropriate technology should be used to solve the problem at hand.

Team culture is currently strong, with a mature and flexible environment in place. As the team continues to scale though, cultivating this is a key goal. We are keen to hear new ideas on how to achieve this and hopefully adding a fresh perspective will give someone the chance to layout their own vision here too.

To be considered for this role, you will need to display the following:

  • Previous experience in a similar leadership role and solid programming background
  • Passion for developing, coaching and mentoring technical teams
  • Excellent communication skills and knowledge of Agile environments
  • Ability to promote technology best practice and comfortable working with others to resolve issues blocking progress
