As a Manager Software Development, you are responsible for leading a group of self-steering teams who do development in our technology office in Tel Aviv. We hire the best and the brightest professionals, and we empower individuals rather than restrict them.
Your role is to support your teams and help them to grow toward their goals. You can hold your own in a technical argument, but you know getting out of the way is often the best option. You get things done via influence not authority. You unlock the creativity of your team and inspire them to build the best for our customers. You work closely with our product owners to ensure we are always working towards what’s most important for our customers. And you take full end to end responsibility for your area.
