GO1 is on a mission to unlock positive potential through a love of learning. The GO1 platform makes learning easy with thousands of courses in one simple solution. Since our founding in 2015, we have grown to an organisation of 200+ in 9 global offices. At GO1, we go to infinity and beyond through excellent work, prioritising actions over words and encouraging creativity and candour. It is with this spirit that we are driving hypergrowth and international expansion. 

We are in search of an experienced, methodical and energising Engineering Manager to join our engineering management team, reporting to the CIO.

About the opportunity 

The engineering manager will help successfully implement a great developer experience. As a direct manager for GO1’s Australian based software developers, you will provide coaching, mentoring and skills development support to your team. Your team are formed into multiple ‘squads’ working on everything from product development to strategic projects and your role will involve ensuring they have the tools, practices and skills to be successful. This is a particularly important role with a great degree of latitude – you will have the opportunity to identify, set, measure and adapt to create efficiencies in how GO1 delivers great software to production.

The role has an excellent career development pathway to a more senior engineering leadership position. 

About you

Undoubtably you will be a practicing software developer with a flair for solution design, good architecture and efficient, effective engineering. Most importantly, you see the value in being a multiplier – someone who thoroughly enjoys coaching and mentoring others to create exponentially better outcomes.

Your main responsibilities will include:

  • Manage the developer experience in your team – providing an environment where good engineers thrive 
  • Maintain good design standards – help your team to continually improve the technology 
  • Uplift agile practices – support your team in the smooth delivery of working software along the path to production
  • Manage your own projects – you will identify better way to do things: Set, implement, measure and learn
  • Provide 1to1 support – know each and every member of your team and help them identify their strengths, opportunities and a path to become the best version of themselves so they can excel in their role

Your strengths

  • Calm and methodical – your experience is obvious, and you provide assurance and confidence to the team so they can focus on what they do best 
  • Creating clarity – you can sort and sift the noise and implement clear direction, objectives and guidance 
  • Robust – you are not afraid to state your case: respectfully, logically and thoroughly
  • Listener – all practiced engineers tend to jump to solution. You will have found that balance between gathering the facts, understanding your team’s challenges and personalities and confidently delivering the path forward
  • Bias toward action – you know it can sometimes be better to reach a conclusion, take action and learn rather than contemplate. You favour do-learn-adapt

Why you will love GO1 

• You can make a difference – your experience and unique qualities will add to our collective ability to execute 

• We have growth challenges – really good ones that you can help us solve

• We take the time to celebrate – every win is important, and every team member has a chance to excel

• We have fun – we enjoy what we do, and our customers and partners choose to work with GO1 because of that
