The Role

We are looking for great engineers with leadership experience, eager of leading a team of ambitious professionals through projects from start to finish. The starting salary for this position is €70,000 annually. You can work from anywhere in the world.

As part of Toggl Track's leadership team, you will lead a team of 4-6 backend and frontend engineers. Taking ownership of one domain of our product, you'll be working closely with product managers and UX designers to deliver real value to our customers with new and improved features.

You will have great product managers, designers, and other specialists working with you on a daily basis to help you prioritize and make decisions based on data and user research. They will rely on you to be their technical contact point and to be on top of your team's work, schedule, and understanding of technical possibilities.

Your main responsibilities will be:

  • being responsible for the well-being and productivity of your team. You will plan your team's work, keep track of progress, and report back to the heads of the product and engineering departments proactively.
  • communicating with stakeholders, keeping our company goals in mind, and understanding how to contribute to them with your own team.

Toggl Track is growing as a company and as a product. This position is an opportunity to lead and make an impact with your team as you contribute to our success.

About the Team

We are a global team of 100+ awesome people working from over 40 countries around the globe. We hire globally, you work locally—in the heart of London, a beach outside of São Paulo, or a quiet village near Florence, the choice is yours. Every few months we travel to meet up somewhere in the world and spend some quality time together. We place a huge amount of trust in our people, and we measure the outcomes rather than the work itself. Our values fuel our results.

We would love to hear from you if you are ready to hone their skills and apply them to new challenges.

  • You have a strong engineering background and at least some leadership experience. You have seen projects through from conception to delivery successfully. You are passionate about leadership and want to lead a talented cross-functional team and make them excel.
  • You care about producing high quality solutions using good engineering principles and practices are are always looking for ways to improve your team's work, and to share what you learn with others.
  • You want to take ownership and make a difference in a successful, bootstrapped, product-led company, iterating constantly and delivering top-quality work. You want to break down and tackle real problems and bring real value to real users.
  • You are proactive and speak up when you see something wrong. You never assume that "it's someone else's problem". You focus on achieving company goals together.
  • You are a great team-player and communicator in your own team when working with specialists like product managers when working with other teams, and with your manager and other stakeholders. You are responsive to feedback and always seek to learn and improve.
  • You like transparency, openness, and asking questions. Your English communication, both written and verbal, is great and you prefer to over- rather than under-communicate. You take the well-being and growth of your team seriously and want to help each team-member succeed in their role.

The technologies your team will be working with are:

  • Go, PostgreSQL, Google Cloud, and a sprinkle of Ruby
  • React, JavaScript, TypeScript, shipped through webpack and Babel

Experience with these technologies, as well as leading an agile team in a product-led SaaS company, can be a plus. If the above describes you, you might just be the perfect fit for us!
