Who we are

Matterway’s mission is to liberate employees from frustrating, difficult to use software, to make companies more productive, agile and profitable.

We now live in the era of User Experience. Leading companies like Apple or Amazon, have mastered the art of great UX, and privately we’re used to great digital experiences. But at work, employees still have to use IT tools that are clunky, difficult to use, and frustrating.

Over the coming years, most companies will invest in the usability of their company internal systems, in order to unlock productivity gains and improve their bottom line. Our Digital Ergonomics Platform is the first platform to help companies simplify, streamline and improve the usability of the applications their employees use every day, from HR to production, from approvals to asset management. We’re funded by one of Europe’s best investors and high calibre international angel investors, who share our vision wholeheartedly.

Join us now to be one of the early team members who shape the direction and future of the company and this emerging industry!

What you will do

We're searching for a hands on technical Engineering Manager with core strengths in the Javascript ecosystem (ES6/React/Typescript/Node) who can lead a team of 10+ software engineers and QAs.

While you are technically credible and know the details of what developers work on, as an engineering manager you spend your time hiring a world-class team and putting it in the best position to succeed. You own the delivery of product commitments and are always looking to improve productivity. You must also coordinate across departments to accomplish collaborative goals. You will be primarily measured according to the performance of your teams. We divide your responsibilities into the following areas:

  • Lead a team of software engineers in implementing high-quality applications and services including design, development, and deployment of new business functionality
  • Mentor and guide the professional and technical development of your team members. Help develop their careers and match them with projects tailored to their skill levels, personalities, work styles, and professional goals
  • Connect with management and other teams to unblock dependencies, provide visibility and transparency to team progress on product initiatives
  • Maintain a balance between building sustainable, high-impact projects and shipping things quickly
  • Create a high performing and positive work environment based on transparency, accountability, and trust.
  • Work closely with the Matterway’s recruiting team to hire high potential engineers from diverse backgrounds

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English (no German required)
