Engineering Manager - Employee Performance and Development
At Personio we are on the amazing journey of becoming the leading HR Platform in Europe!
The Employee Performance and Development Tribe includes the management of feedback meetings, the tracking of goals and a very big vision for the future. The Performance review cycle is one of the most stressful processes for People Managers and Employees alike, but it doesn’t have to be. Our goal is to make this as transparent, fair and painless as possible. We are building the tools that help managers foster the right conversations, engage and grow employees in their careers and provide insights to organisations that help them unlock their people potential.
Like all our tribes we are a cross-functional group of engineers, designers and product managers from many different nationalities and backgrounds, spread across different locations and we continue to grow in 2021. Join us and help shape the Employee Performance and Development Tribe journey for Personio.
We are at the beginning of our journey and need help laying the foundation of Performance Management to become a directly revenue contributing product and drive towards Personio's mission to enable better organisations.
We are looking for an Engineering Manager who can help us push the boundaries of growth and innovation in a fast-paced environment, while leading one of our mission-based teams. You’ll not just get the opportunity to build high-performing interdisciplinary teams, but as a leader get the opportunity to impact engineering, operational and management excellence within the entire department.
What you will focus on:
High-performing teams: Build driven and high-performing teams by focusing on the development of the engineers.
Maximizing impact: Collaborate closely with your partners in product and design to define and execute the most impactful initiatives.
Architecture: Work closely with your team to provide feedback on architecture and approach. Enable your team to deliver scalable, maintainable, secure, and performant products.
Engineering culture: Build and influence a culture of ownership, autonomy, and inclusivity, not just within your team but the whole department.
Technical excellence: Leverage your technical skills to build engineering excellence within your team that promotes and implements engineering best practices.

Transparency: We’re very transparent about the decisions we make and the motivations behind them.
Feedback: We firmly believe in learning from each other, for which we embrace the principle of giving and receiving feedback.
Opportunity: You have the opportunity to directly contribute to the department, and not just your team, by being involved in processes like recruiting, performance and development, onboarding, and much more.
Diversity: The best workplaces are diverse and we celebrate that diversity in all aspects.
Flexibility: There is no one size fits all, so we do our best to understand and be flexible towards what makes you the most effective.
