    Engineering Manager - Snap Store & Charmhub

    • As an Engineering Manager at Canonical, you must be technically strong, but your main responsibility is to run an effective team and develop the colleagues you manage. You will develop and review code as a leader, but know that the best way to improve the product is to ensure that the whole team is focused, productive and unblocked. You are expected to help them grow as engineers, do meaningful work, do it outstandingly well, find professional and personal satisfaction, and work well with colleagues and the community. You will also be expected to be a positive influence on culture, facilitate technical delivery, and regularly reflect with your team on strategy and execution. You will collaborate closely with other Engineering Managers, product managers, and architects, producing an engineering roadmap with ambitious and achievable goals.
    • We expect Engineering Managers to be fluent in the programming language, architecture, and components that their team uses. Code reviews and architectural leadership are part of the job. The commitment to healthy engineering practices, documentation, quality and performance optimisation is as important, as is the requirement for fair and clear management, and the obligation to ensure a high-performing team.
    • This is a great opportunity to really learn how to do engineering of a highly-scalable SaaS product (think about the load on our systems when one of our largest Ubuntu Desktop snaps is updated by the publisher, for instance). In addition, you will have the opportunity to learn from Canonical's world-class security team as we work collectively to deliver this capability, safely, to our customers around the world.

    Location: This role may be based remotely in the Americas, Europe, Middle East or Africa time zones.
    What your day will look like

    • Lead a remote team of engineers in your time zone
    • Develop talent through coaching, mentoring, feedback, and hands-on career development
    • Set and manage expectations with other engineering teams, management, and external stakeholders
    • Be an active part of the leadership team and collaborate with other leaders in the organisation
    • With your team, build clean web service APIs to support both CLI and web frontend clients, using Python (and optionally Golang).
    • Engage with many other teams at Canonical, as well as the open-source community and commercial partners

    What we are looking for in you

    • Good experience in leading modern, agile software development practices
    • Experience in forming a healthy, collaborative engineering culture in line with the company values
    • Demonstrative experience of being a role model for sound engineering principles and directly contributing toward your team's goals
    • Willingness to travel up to 4 times a year for internal events
    • You love to mentor, develop and grow people, and have a track record of doing it
    • You are knowledgeable and passionate about software development
    • You are focused on success and the timely delivery of high-quality software
    • You value and nurture great team culture and spirit
    • You have experience and commitment to agile development methodologies
    • Software development experience in Python (experience in Golang in addition to that would be a big plus)
    • Effective written and verbal communication skills
    • Practical experience with Linux system administration
