Are you looking for the next step in your career? Do you want to work in a rapidly growing company and form the digital future for the world's largest hobby? Then we could be just what you are fishing for!

Did you know that fishing is the world’s most popular hobby? We do! And here at Fishbrain we have created the world’s largest social network dedicated to people who love fishing. We want to make sure that we can give them the greatest experience possible and make their fishing dreams come true, today and tomorrow.

We have over 12 million users all over the world who have logged more than 10 million catches in our app. We’re growing rapidly, both in our social network and in the company, which is why we’re looking for an Engineering Manager to join our pond. We hope that it’s you.

In this role you will help Fishbrain to expand its presence on the web. Today we have a single team working on, so you will assist in splitting it into two separate teams. You will be part of the decision making process for the focus, direction, and goals of the new web team.

In the position as an Engineering Manager you report to the Director of Engineering.

Please submit applications in English, those that are not will not be reviewed.

  • Data - Define and analyze tech metrics that inform the success of your team’s work.

  • Experience with experimentation and data-driven decision making.
  • Very good understanding of agile methodologies and a demonstrable ability to drive innovation and execution through your team. 
  • Experience in growing and leading a team of engineers towards high performance through honest and transparent communication, coaching and effective delegating.
