Software Engineering Manager – GreenTech, Ruby on Rails or React Native
Salary: £80,000 – £110,000 + stock
Location: Fully remote, must be UK based
If you love making architectural decisions, thinking of technical debt more in terms of technical investments and designing systems efficiently the first time round, would like to enable growth and excellence in a dev team AND want to tackle the climate crisis, this is a role to consider.
You likely forged your career as a Ruby on Rails or front-end developer having used React / Native and unless you’ve been a part of a rapidly scaling tech company will need to have experience with one of these.
But, more recently you’ve become increasingly passionate about helping others to grow and enhance their skills.
So what problem are you going to solve?
We are a wasteful world. From energy to water and food. We know that in order to build a more sustainable future we need to get better and using less, sharing more and finding ways to stop prioritising profit over efficiency.
Imagine working for a company that is actively changing how the world works, making it easy for us to turn from wasteful consumers of excess to community-based action heroes who are actively building a more sustainable future through the use of technology?
Not only that, but their app helps some of the most vulnerable people in society, at a time when so many people need support with few places to turn.
However, this isn’t a charity or a wooly CSR project, it’s a bona fide, newsworthy and serious investor-backed business. Their app and web platform now have over 5 million users and 60,000+ volunteers. That’s 5 million people doing their bit to remove waste from the equation, all with a few clicks on their phone!
Businesses now account for two thirds of their transactions and there’s a lot of areas for growth as more organisations and businesses sign up. Countless numbers of charities also benefit from their work too.
You’ll be leading a team of 7, including a QA Tester and Lead Dev and you will help grow this team over the coming year with some additional hires at all levels.
Their tech centres around Ruby on Rails and React (Native) and they use things like AWS with S3, ECR, ELB, Cloudwatch and also use Docker, Travis CI for their pipelines, lots of google maps integration and Redis, among other things. So any experience with those or similar tools will enable you to settle in quickly.
You’ll work closely with stakeholders including customers and product managers, the data team, design and user researchers, particularly early on as you understand how best to prioritise building new systems.
They need strong technical leadership to bring all of their developers to the same or similar level, they want to create an elite team that can enable the company to achieve their incredibly ambitious goals of reaching 25 million users by 2024.
So, fancy using your skills and talents to help one the coolest and most newsworthy sustainability-tech companies in the World, while also advancing your career?
