Remote - European timezone preferred
Engineering Managers at Isovalent are responsible for leading the engineers in our different verticals. Vertical is essentially a large technical area like a data plane or control plane. Together with the vertical leads, our managers hold responsibility for keeping the team focused on the most high-value projects, identifying bottlenecks and roadblocks, and working with the team on clearing these.
Engineering Managers have a large impact on the success of our organization as a whole, by helping their people grow and succeed at what they do, and by growing their teams when necessary.
The role is remote. Our team is mostly split between Europe and the Americas. For this position, we are looking for someone located around the European timezone, as most reports will be in Europe, with a few in the Americas. Up to GMT-6 would be acceptable.
