What we're looking for

We're looking for an engineering manager who has strong people and technical skills to join us at Hubble as we scale. You will be accountable for guiding our engineers along their career paths and identifying and helping debug team-level processes and bottlenecks. You should be passionate about helping other engineers become the best versions of themselves, and view yourself as a force multiplier.

The ideal person for this will have previous management experience, either formally or informally and will have a strong sense of empathy.

The Role

Our team prides itself on a healthy work-life balance. We try to keep our work fun and engaging, but we end our days on time and keep weekends to ourselves. We deeply value career growth and offer dedicated in-work time for education and regular hack days.

Engineering managers at Hubble are responsible for a team of up to 8 product engineers. They report to the Head of Engineering (Simon). We do not expect EMs to code on a regular basis, however previous experience as a software engineer is expected.

Responsibilities

  • You will manage a team in London of up to eight software engineers, ranging in level from junior to senior, and will report to the Head of Engineering.
  • You will not be expected to code, but you should have enough technical experience to be able to articulate and reason about system design at a high level.
  • Build trust and provide clarity around your team's mission to enable you to succeed together.
  • You will join other managers to collaborate on ways of working and improving the developer experience for the organisation.
  • We believe that a key ingredient to a high-performing team is its passion for achieving its mission. With help from the team's tech lead, the EM is critical to building excitement and clarity around the team's vision. They should have an ability to express business value and needs in a language that engages engineers
  • Enabling cross-functional collaboration to ensure product development is a collaborative effort with the PM and UX designer.

Requirements

  • A strong sense of empathy, be a great listener and have the ability to build trust. We want someone who is passionate and excited. They should want to change the world for good as part of a start-up
  • Deep understanding of the software development process, as well as familiarity with full-stack development, and the process and procedures that enable a full-stack engineer to succeed.

Benefits

Hubble prides itself as a high-quality employer, with a consistent 5-star Glassdoor rating and a team NPS score of 80+. We won Property Week’s Best Places to Work twice a row across four categories.

We ensure everyone in the team is comfortable and has the best environment for them. We offer flexible hours and remote working and have a relaxed attitude to taking holidays; our focus is on outcomes, not output. Benefits can be tweaked individually depending on what makes you most productive.

We practice what we preach: Hubble works hybrid. You can work from our main office for face-to-face collaboration and interaction with your colleagues. You can also work from anywhere, whether that's your own home or one of the many spaces available in London, across the UK, and around the world on Hubble Pass.
