Are you interested in working in a leadership role with true impact? Are you looking for a strong context > control culture? Then you have come to the right place.
Most will agree that universities and colleges are quintessential to a well-functioning society. However, with their inherent operational complexity and immense size, they are among the most difficult organisations to run efficiently. TimeEdit is on a mission to solve this by delivering the most comprehensive suite of efficient resource management tools to the higher education sector globally. We are the fastest growing provider in the industry and are expanding rapidly with new implementations in the Netherlands, Belgium, Australia, New Zealand, to name a few. More and more universities are discovering TimeEdit to solve their scheduling and resource management needs.
With the market transitioning away from legacy monolites, Excel spreadsheets and home-grown has-beens, the TimeEdit engineering teams are pivotal in creating the next generation of Resource Management Systems (RMS) for universities across the globe. To do this, we are looking for another set of capable hands to lead one or two of our engineering teams as we execute on our ambitious growth plans.
As our new Engineering Manager you will be responsible for:
Two agile engineering teams in a Leadership role, driving the value delivery for your teams
Architecture and coding practice leadership guiding the teams towards sustainable and effective coding practices
Functional accountability for these teams, including line management
Coaching and mentoring of staff
Mastering our way of working through continuous improvements, creating energy and focus on our key performance indicators, such as Quality, Velocity and Predictability
Being the functional representative for the teams in our release train sync forums and product management forums
Being an active part of the Engineering Leadership team
Other responsibilities and day-to-day tasks...
It will be your responsibility to conduct 1-on-1s with your team members to constantly improve and coach your team. You will indulge yourself and practice leadership but also get down in the trenches and deliver crisp code, testing and/or other product artifacts.
What do you need to succeed in this role?
2-5 years of experience with leading a team of developers, or demonstrated similar seniority among your peers
Experience of coordinating backlog grooming, planning and demos
Hands-on experience from software development in agile organisations
Be self-going and deliver strong results based on high level directions instead of micro managing
Great communication skills and you are fluent in English, verbal and written
Who are you?
We believe that you are an individual that can contribute with your own ideas and challenge our way of thinking. We believe that you enjoy “blank canvas” problem solving, and consider yourself a self-starter. We are a company with high ambitions, and we believe that you have them too. That said, we simultaneously believe you have strong ethics, and practice value-based leadership.
If this is you, go ahead and apply! We’re eager to get to know you, and kick off this journey together.

Modern office spaces in the heart of Gothenburg
Flexible hours and a remote friendly environment
TimeEdit was established in Gothenburg in the mid 90’s by an astrophysicist making a timetabling application from an Excel sheet on crack. Since then, the system has been professionalised and developed further to arguably become the world’s most modern fleet of resource management tools for higher education institutions.
Today, TimeEdit is one of Scandinavia’s fastest growing EdTech companies. On average, our customers spend 20% less on facilities, representing more than 4MEUR (!) in savings per year (yes, we’re pretty proud of that!). Less money spent on empty rooms means more resources allocated to research projects and higher education quality.
We recently celebrated our 150th customer and are growing fast through new exciting applications and a global roll-out. Today, more than half a million students, teachers and schedulers use our products every day (yes, we’re pretty proud about that, too!).
Our office is located at Kungsportsplatsen in the heart of Gothenburg. There’s standing desks, great coffee (according to most), open areas, closed offices and a very BBQ friendly terrace.
Context, not controlIf the team is fully cognizant of our purpose and how it maps to TimeEdit's current state of business, we believe we can make much better decisions and accomplish far more than through a top-down management model.
Swing for the fencesWe encourage experimentation. Better to try and sometimes fail than to sit tight and… fail for sure. Each mistake carries a lesson, and we make sure to learn from it.
Judgement > PoliciesSocial media policy. Travel policy. Buy a round of beers at an event policy. Work from home policy. Nay. Our policy on these (and most things) consists of three words: Use good judgement.
Work-life fitWe're scaling a company where people can build their work around their life, not the other way around. Flexibility means you're in the driver's seat to create a schedule that works for you, your passions, and the people you love.
