Engineering Manager / Software Development Manager (Distributed Systems) *Remote UK / WfH*. Are you technologist seeking a role where you can lead and develop a first class engineering team working on cutting edge technology? You could be joining a highly regarded provider of serverless real-time infrastructure for the Internet that processes billions of messages a day and powers everything from live chat and VoIP calls to real-time pricing and stock availability for a multitude of services around the globe.

The company is able to offer a completely remote interview and onboarding process as well as fulltime work from home, you'll collaborate via Slack (occasional visits to the office in North London could be required for team meet-ups, tech talks, lunch and learn events when social distancing is over).

*You're an accomplished technical leader, able to recruit, develop and retain top class software engineers / developers
*You have exceptional planning and execution capacity with an ability to monitor progress, take corrective action when necessary and communicate changes
*You're a confident and pragmatic communicator, collaborative and keen to share knowledge whilst continually learning
