Kontent.ai is searching for an experienced Engineering manager to help the teams within the product branch to create a quality solution with a great user experience. The development is mainly based in Brno as well as in the growing Olomouc office. Depending on the development teams, we are working from “mostly office” to “fully remote” modes.
Our development is organized into three branches with 4-5 small teams. Each team has the freedom to choose their way of working and, in close cooperation with the UX designer and the Product manager, is fulfilling the branch goals. Currently, teams are alternating between iterations focused on business opportunities and shorter iterations for refinement/upkeep/tech debt. Besides that, teams can be supported by Engineering managers, Agile coaches, Architects, and DevOps teams.
Is it you?
- Experience with leading people
- Strong technical background and experience with developing cloud applications, preferably in the B2B market
- Knowledge and understanding of the strategy, vision, and business model of the organization and capability of their transformation into employee/departmental goals
- Willingness to challenge the technical and leadership skills of our TechLeads
- Team player
- Lead by example
- Knowledge of SW development, methodologies, trends
What will you do?
As an Engineering manager, you will be responsible for the value delivery of your 4-5 teams within one of the three product groups. The role would closely cooperate with other Engineering managers, UX lead, PM lead, and Agile lead to solve the development process and other challenges along the way. In cooperation with those roles, you will propose, execute, and measure various changes to move us forward. Development teams should also be challenged by the role in terms of quality, scalability, and addressing the strategic technical debt in the respective iterations. You will also lead 1:1s with the branch TechLeads and help them grow, solve issues, connect with the right people, and share experience as well as important context.

Perks & Benefits
Balancing your professional and personal life can be tricky. We want to help you strike the right balance between both of them without having to compromise either one. That’s why we offer flexible working hours, working from home (or anywhere else), and a five-week holiday so that you can get in touch with your inner social butterfly. We also extend paternity leave for fathers and give loyal employees a month-long sabbatical to unplug and recharge.
Health is a priority
We take the health and happiness of our employees seriously. We provide a meal allowance so you can eat healthy at home or take advantage of healthy snacks at the office. We also offer massages to help your body (and mind) relax when you need to recharge your batteries. Or you can take part in sports events with your coworkers—whether that means playing football, badminton, or squash. And if you get sick? No worries! We provide unlimited sick days, so you can take care of yourself when you need it.
We learn every day
We believe that a growth mindset is the real key to success. That’s why we dedicate 20% of our working time to education and innovations so that each employee can thrive in their career—from attending conferences and running internal workshops to borrowing books from our company library and gaining professional certifications. The icing on the cake? We also have a native English teacher who helps us improve our language skills.
