Auckland, New Zealand

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by 👋

Are you actively looking for a new opportunity? Or just checking the market? Well… you might just be in the right place!

We’re looking for a Software Development Manager (Mobile) to join our team in Auckland. In this role, you will own the engagement and performance of engineers by developing resilience and nurturing high-performance; leading by example and empowering others to do their best work.

What you’ll be doing:

  • People Leadership: You will be coaching, mentoring, guiding, and motivating a team of hard working engineers from all backgrounds. This includes all aspects of people management including hiring and training team members,  and using tools like great 1:1s, peer programming, whiteboarding or training sessions.
  • Technical Delivery: You’ll be helping your team deliver code in a high trust environment using continuous delivery, ensuring the team has a great delivery cadence and a strong connection with stakeholders (using demos, retros, blameless incident reviews, and the like).. While you won’t be as hands-on with the code as your team are, you’ll still be writing code, helping with code reviews, and fixing bugs; as well as providing technical advice and documentation for systems/processes.
  • Planning and architecture: Evaluating the performance of the technical architecture of our infrastructure and adopting industry trends 

And a little bit of… 

  • Mentoring or training members of Solutions (using peer programming, whiteboarding or training sessions)
  • Contributing as part of the wider team to achieve organisational objectives even if this means doing things that aren’t strictly within the scope of your role 

What you need to bring:

We're looking for a candidate who has experience with the following:

  • Significant experience in previous success and failure (“scars”), which help you make better decisions.
  • Previous people leadership experience is ideal, or you’re ready to take the leap into team leadership. 
  • Significant experience working on a number of complex mobile products.
  • A rich understanding of at least one or the major platforms and a practical understanding of the other.
  • Experience within a similar industry is helpful but not crucial.
  • Someone who is adaptable and knows how to build, change, and adapt to the needs of a company as it grows.
  • Effective at nurturing relationships and managing multiple stakeholders.

We know that people are more than what’s on their CV. If you’re unsure that you have the right profile for the role... hit the ‘Apply’ button and give it a try!
