As a Technical Manager at Skyscanner, you’ll be leading a team of engineers and you’ll get more respect from them if you’re already one of them. So ideally, we want to hear from people who have an engineering background themselves.
Skyscanner is the word’s travel search engine and we’re doing great new stuff right now. Our Technical Managers are responsible for leading their teams in the design and development of systems that keep our travel search solutions ahead of the pack. As well as engineers, you will work closely with architects, product and project managers, providing technical leadership to define the roadmap and deliver new features to the market. And on top of all of that, you’ll have a hands on role in the planning, execution and successful delivery of state of the art solutions. You will mentor our technical staff and be actively involved in recruiting future industry giants.
If you think your experience will command our engineers’ respect, we’d love to hear from you
A background in software development or engineering. Great technical leadership. A track record of inspiring your teammates with your passion and vision. A self-motivated working style. A flexible approach. Communication skills in spades.
An excellent career move, the chance to work with a team of ultra smart developers and a great working culture. The space to be trusted to do what you do best and the opportunity to make a real difference.
We’re looking for people across all levels of experience and we’re more concerned with what you can do than what you have done. As a minimum, a Computer Science degree or similar; experience in a web economy or other tech environment; proficiency in object-oriented programming, automated testing, front and back end web development and database technologies.
