We are looking for an Engineering Manager to inspire our Engineering teams at Coconut! Our Engineering teams are eager to perform at a high level and value experienced leadership to guide them in rapidly and efficiently building solutions that revolutionize the banking experience at some of the industry leading financial institutions, focussing on iteration, experimentation, and stability.

We’re keen on leaders with a learning mentality, who thrive leading a fast growing team. If you come in with strong fundamentals, you’ll have our full support on this journey!

  • We innovate on top of a modern solution stack consisting of web technologies (such as React and Laravel) utilizing a RESTful architecture, and backed by relational DBs (MariaDB and PostgreSQL) and deployed using Docker in an AWS environment
  • We don't follow rigid Scrum, but we do work in an agile, iterative way, and try to continuously improve and implement what works for us
  • We are a blameless culture and a believe in a continuous improvement mindset


  • Focus on People Leadership: You will be coaching, mentoring, guiding, and motivating a team of engineers from different backgrounds. This includes all aspects of people management including hiring and training team members, and using tools like great 1:1s, pair programming, or training sessions.
  • Ensure Technical Delivery: You’ll be helping your team(s) deliver code in a high trust environment using continuous delivery, ensuring the team has a great delivery cadence and a strong connection with stakeholders (using demos, retros, blameless incident reviews, and the like). While you won’t be as hands-on with the code as your team, you’ll still be writing code, helping with code reviews, and fixing bugs; as well as providing technical advice and documentation for systems/processes and tracking projects to ensure successful grant applications.
  • Participate in Strategic Planning and Architecture: Evaluating the performance of the technical architecture of our infrastructure and evaluating and adopting industry trends will also be required.


  • You have significant experience with success and failure, which helps you make better decisions
  • Previous experience managing engineering teams (at least 2 years) - including coaching, mentoring, guiding, and motivating engineers
  • Strong experience in working on major systems in one or more object oriented programming languages (PHP, Python, Ruby, Go, Rust, Java, C++, NodeJS, etc)
  • Effective at nurturing relationships and managing multiple stakeholders across different teams
  • Driven by the value that ‘how we win matters’ and a passion for building inclusive, collaborative teams that put people first
