Job Description


The Software Engineering Manager is responsible for technical and people management and is actively engaged in developing the team to deliver on business priorities that flow through the Scrum leadership (Product Managers and Product Owners). The Software Engineering Manager also manages up and manages out to promote the team and build relationships within the larger organization. As a technical manager, you set the boundaries and expectations for delivering a quality product and timely solutions; you are an avid promoter of process improvement; you seek out and promote best practices; you own and refine the technical architecture, continually investing in refactoring and refinement to incorporate modern engineering tools and practices.
