Why become Noggin's Engineering Manager?

Noggin is a fast-paced, yet mature and growing SaaS company. As part of our growth and evolution, we’re looking for a Engineering Manager to come on board and to lead, grow and develop our engineering practice further. This role reports directly to the CTO and will will be responsible for technical and people leadership as well as operations and business improvement.

You will be responsible for the overseeing an engineering function that performs well and is core to our delivery of a quality, high performing and game-changing SaaS solution. As the Engineering Manager, you’ll be core to the evolution of our team structure & processes and to helping us build an even stronger devops and quality-centered culture our software development.

We have a very simple, but winning formula. We look for smart, driven people who want to be the best at their game. You’re curious, you’re independent and you want to lead and inspire a team that’s focused on excelling, pushing our tech stack as far as it can go and delivering a really exceptional product.

What does it take to be a Noggin?

As the Engineering Manager, you’ve come from a strong software engineering background yourself and you’ve made a conscious move into technical leadership. You’re particularly strong in engineering web application systems architecture, especially complex, scalable and event-driven / workflow based SaaS solutions. You’re keen to stay ‘on the tools’ to keep your skills sharp but you deliver so much more value than writing code. You’re a leader, a thinker, a doer and a business improver - and you're passionate about ensuring that you and your team deliver exceptional quality, high performing, scalable and secure products.

You're tertiary qualified in Engineering, Computer Science or similar and you've had a significant record of success in delivering complex, quality enterprise software solutions – ideally using a combination of the following PHP/ Angular / Typescript / NodeJS / Docker / DynamoDB / Redis etc.

Of course, you’ll also need to be adept at communicating technical concepts to non-technical stakeholders and relationship building overall - as well as working across the business to ensure that we collectively deliver exceptional products and solve the complex problems that come across our paths daily. 

What does success look like in this role?

Within your first three months you’ll have become fully conversant with our product strategy, tech stack, systems architecture, and your team – plus you’ll have some valuable insights on how to continue to evolve and scale this.

6 Months in, you’ll have really hit your stride in delivering a long-term plan for your team and Noggin’s system architecture as a whole. You’ll have established a strong relationship with your team and you’re proactively leading and mentoring them. In addition to this, you have worked closely with the Product Program Manager to ensure that we keep up with or project schedule and product roadmap.

After 12 months, you’ll have a fully engaged and high performing team of engineers who are poised to continue building a game-changing, impactful SaaS solution. And you’ve introduced numerous business improvements to ensure that engineering continues to deliver exceptional SaaS solutions that delight our customers.

Further down the track, you'll be ready to step into a Head of / Director level role with Noggin as we continue to grow and scale our business - and our engineering function.
