Featurespace have an exciting new opportunity for an experienced and dynamic Software Engineering Manager to join our growing Engineering team in our Cambridge office.
A Software Engineering Manager at Featurespace is responsible for processes, methodologies, execution, and reporting on the operational functions of the Featurespace Engineering department. Taking broad direction from the CTO and Directors of Engineering, they ensure that we build the right software and deliver value to our customers in a safe and sane manner.
Reporting to the CTO, the Software Engineering Manager will own, execute, and report on our operational processes, and have responsibility for our Software Development Lifecycle.
They will act as an escalation point for other departments (especially Product, Delivery, and IT) and, where there are competing priorities, are empowered to make decisions to ensure that we fulfil our commitments to our customers and Delivery teams, and balance urgent priorities against ongoing Product development.
The Software Engineering Manager will have responsibility of the line management of the Release Management and Release Engineering teams, and matrix management of other Engineering teams (although line management remains with functional teams), which will include the allocation of tasks, tracking progress, and reporting.
