Location: Gothenburg

Are you interested in working in a technical leadership role with true impact? Are you looking for a strong context > control culture? Then you have come to the right place.

The Mission

Most will agree that universities and colleges are quintessential to a well-functioning society. However, with their inherent operational complexity and immense size, they are among the most difficult organisations to run efficiently. TimeEdit is on a mission to solve this by delivering the most comprehensive suite of efficient resource management tools to the higher education sector globally. We are the fastest growing provider in the industry and are expanding rapidly with new implementations in the Netherlands, Belgium, Australia, New Zealand, to name a few. More and more universities are discovering TimeEdit to solve their scheduling, resource management and academic operation needs.

The Challenge

With the market transitioning away from legacy monolites, Excel spreadsheets and home-grown has-beens, the TimeEdit engineering teams are pivotal in creating the next generation of Resource Management Systems (RMS) and Acedmic Operations for universities across the globe. To do this, we are looking for another set of capable hands to lead one of our engineering teams as we execute on our ambitious growth plans.

As our new Engineering Manager you will be responsible for:

  • One agile engineering team of 2-4 developers in a leadership role, driving the value delivery for your team
  • Architecture and leadership, guiding the teams towards sustainable and effective coding practices (React.js, Node.js, Express.js and TypeScript)

  • Functional accountability for these teams, including line management

  • Mastering our way of working through continuous improvements and focus on our key performance indicators, such as Quality, Velocity and Predictability

  • Being the representative for the teams in our release train sync forums and product management forums

Other responsibilities and day-to-day tasks.

It will be your responsibility to conduct 1-on-1s with your team members to constantly improve and coach your team. You will indulge yourself and practice leadership but also get down in the trenches and deliver crisp code, testing and/or other product artifacts.

What do you need to succeed in this role?

  • Hands-on experience from software development in agile organisations, preferably JavaScript
  • 2+ years of experience in leading a team of developers, or demonstrated similar seniority among your peers
  • Experience of coordinating backlog grooming, planning and demos
  • Be self-going and deliver strong results based on high level directions
  • Great communication skills in English, verbal and written

Who are you?

We believe that you are an individual that can contribute with your own ideas and challenge our way of thinking. We believe that you enjoy “blank canvas” problem solving, and consider yourself a self-starter. We are a company with high ambitions, and we believe that you have them too. That said, we simultaneously believe you have strong ethics, and practice value-based leadership.
If this is you, go ahead and apply! We’re eager to get to know you, and kick off this journey together.

If you have any other questions don’t hesitate to reach out to Emil Oskarsson on [email protected] or 0724022451.

About the company

TimeEdit was established in Gothenburg in the mid 90’s by an astrophysicist making a timetabling application from an Excel sheet on crack. Since then, the system has been professionalised and developed further to arguably become the world’s most modern fleet of resource management tools for higher education institutions.

Today, TimeEdit is one of Scandinavia’s fastest growing EdTech companies. On average, our customers spend 20% less on facilities, representing more than 4MEUR (!) in savings per year (yes, we’re pretty proud of that!). Less money spent on empty rooms means more resources allocated to research projects and higher education quality.

We recently celebrated our 150th customer and are growing fast through new exciting applications and a global roll-out. Today, more than half a million students, teachers and schedulers use our products every day (yes, we’re pretty proud about that, too!).

Our office is located at Kungsportsplatsen in the heart of Gothenburg. There’s standing desks, great coffee (according to most), open areas, closed offices and a very BBQ friendly terrace.

Context, not control

If the team is fully aware of our purpose and how it maps to TimeEdit’s current state of business, we believe we can make much better decisions and accomplish far more than through a top-down management model.

Swing for the fences

We encourage experimentation. Better to try and sometimes fail than to sit tight and… fail for sure. Each mistake carries a lesson, and we make sure to learn from it.

Judgment > Policies

Social media policy. Travel policy. Buy a round of beers at an event policy. Work from home policy. Nay. Our policy on these (and most things) consists of three words: Use good judgement.

Work-life fit

We’re scaling a company where people can build their work around their life, not the other way around. Flexibility means you’re in the driver’s seat to create a schedule that works for you, your passions, and the people you love.
