Meet Sievo

At Sievo, we help the world’s largest organizations make effective and timely decisions by creating smart and seamless procurement analytics software solutions. We are on a quest to create products that go beyond providing conventional procurement analytics data related to how the money is spent in our client organizations.

Our next chapter in our comprehensive solutions includes providing data ranging from sustainability, environmental to societal topics. Thereby, supporting our customers journey in creating impact through responsible sourcing.

The Role

We are now looking for a full-time Engineering Manager to join the new product team we are building. This new team begins its journey by developing novel solutions around supplier sustainability, diversity, and risks, as well as carbon footprint analysis. Team’s Product Manager and Engineer Manager collaborate closely to build the best solution and the best team. Product Manager is mostly responsible of the what, whereas Engineering Manager is mostly responsible of the how.

As an Engineering Manager you will be contributing to our efforts to drive better product decisions, improve our technical operational efficiency, and enable the team to generate high impact outcomes. We are ramping up the team, and one of the initial tasks for the Engineer Manager would be to grow this team.

If you are the kind of person who gets the kicks out of creating impactful products while supporting and nurturing your team members, this might be the ideal role for you. Also, since the team is relatively small to begin with, you should expect spending a considerable amount of time coding and performing code reviews.

Key responsibilities

Strategy

  • Aligning the team with the company goals
  • Participate in the product development process from start to finish, from helping scope projects to measuring their success and iterating based on user feedback.
  • Provide visibility to the wider organization to ensure we are all on the same page and aware of what is coming and when.

People Management

  • Provide technical direction, coaching and leadership to the engineers in the team.
  • Recruit and develop key engineering talents and focus towards motivating, inspiring, and empowering the team to achieve a high level of technical expertise, productivity, and efficiency
  • Collaborate with your team in thinking through our challenges, both short and long term
  • Active participation in enhancing our Sievo-wide engineering culture to be even better than today.

We’re looking for someone who:

  • Would consider the engineering team as your own team
  • Has experience in similar roles with a proven track record managing a growing team of top performers.
  • Cares about successful outcomes but also is keen to build a healthy work environment that is both inclusive and supportive.
  • Can guide and nurture engineering talent in developing new skills and advance in their careers.
  • Enjoys close collaboration with other engineering teams, product management and other stakeholders.
  • Can clearly communicate decisions and the rationale behind them, excellent communication skills in English.
  • Has a good knowledge of modern cloud technologies.
  • Has experience working with modern web technologies such as React and Web components

What it’s like working at Sievo

  • Have a strong impact on the new sustainability features of Sievo’s new product.
  • Competitive compensation package – and an opportunity to work in our awesome office in the heart of Helsinki.
