Senior Manager, Software Engineering

Toronto

Are you as passionate about the development of people as your are about product? 

Then Jobber might be the place for you! We’re looking for a Senior Manager, Product Engineering to be part of our Product Engineering department.

Jobber exists to help people in small businesses be successful. As featured in the Globe and Mail, we work with home and field service companies to help them better quote, schedule, invoice and collect payments from their customers. Having been named the #2 fastest growing software company in Canada and one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in 2020, it’s clear we’ve come a long way from our first customer in 2011 – but we’ve just scratched the surface of what we want to accomplish for our customers.   

Our product provides entrepreneurs the flexibility of working in their office or the field and we offer that same opportunity to our employees. You will have the choice to work in either our Edmonton or Toronto offices or remotely anywhere within Canada. We’re committed to ensuring the best experience for all Jobberinos to do impactful work. We weren’t named a top workplace in Canada for nothing!

The team:

Our Product Engineering team is central to Jobber’s success – focused on creating software that delivers value to hundreds of thousands of users around the world. 

As a leader in this area, you’ll manage the engineers of two of our scrum teams that are leading the foundations of Jobber's future front end technologies on web and mobile. You’ll balance looking at the big priorities and objectives of the department and adapting to change, while not being afraid to roll up your sleeves and work on problems with them. 

The role: 

Reporting to our Director, Product Engineering, the Senior Manager, Product Engineering will work with members of our talented Product Engineering team to support and develop their skills and career, as we work together to empower small businesses. You’ll manage and grow two of our scrum teams covering the foundational technologies and design system that enable teams across Jobber to build effective, rich user experiences across the product.

The Senior Manager, Product Engineering will:

  • Live and breathe performance facilitation. You want to work with your team(s) to help them master their individual crafts, while also collaborating to build extraordinary infrastructure and systems.
  • Be committed to the success of your people. You will help them set goals, have regular 1-on-1s, and provide constructive feedback and coaching to ensure your team's success. You’ll work to understand employees’ career direction and work to empower their journey by acting as a mentor and coach. 
  • Develop a world-class team alongside a world-class product. You’ll participate in recruiting events and the hiring process while also working to level up your internal team, while implementing new processes, all to develop a world-class Product Engineering department.
  • Remove roadblocks and build guardrails. You’ll work with the other leaders to create and maintain an environment where people can rapidly produce top-quality work that ultimately helps our customers be successful.
  • Collaborate with other stakeholders across the business. Whether it’s our Design and Management teams within Product, or our Business Technology and Growth teams, you’re working closely with other Jobberinos to find the best solutions in Jobber for small businesses.

To be successful, you should have:

  • A track record of success in being an established software engineer, as well as time spent in a leadership position, guiding a team in the delivery of quality software.
  • A strong interest in user experience. You'll work closely with counterparts in Design and Product disciplines to help your teams pave the way. Experience with client side technologies on mobile or 'progressive web app' frameworks will help you advocate for effective front end development practices across Jobber.
  • The ability to be agile in an agile environment. You’ll need to be able to lead and teach your team to adapt to change, while also thinking critically and creatively to find answers to problems.
  • Effective communication. Being transparent with your team and establishing an open dialogue will be a key to success in supporting your coaching conversations and discussions.
  • Collaboration down to an art. You’ll work with your direct reports or other teams to understand what they want to accomplish and develop a plan to achieve it.
  • Be a leader and mentor. You’ll bring your shared experience into conversations to influence and provide constructive feedback to direct reports throughout the journey to ensure goals are being met and exceeded
