Job description

Your team

At Scaleway, we provide a large scope of products to our customers. From dedicated servers to virtual and bare metal cloud servers, storage solutions and many other products, the Hardware Department is at the heart of the Scaleway infrastructure, offering over 100,000 servers from our own data centers to our customers and internal teams.
The Hardware Department is responsible for most of the hardware activities of the company; from qualification to prototype, tool development to hardware support, and rack level design.

The Hardware Dev team is responsible for developing the in-house tools that will be used during the qualification phases, for quality checks and for pre-production configuration and setup activities.
The team’s mission is to develop the best-in-class tools in order to automate deployments, to improve overall quality and time to market and to optimize the cost-effectiveness of hardware assets.

Your mission

As an Engineering manager, you will be responsible for both the management of your team of engineers, and global engineering for the team. This position is an equal balance of a managerial role, and the day-to-day use of technical skills.

As a manager, you will take care of your team. You will be in charge of administration tasks like planning and holidays, but not only.

You will work with them in order to find the most efficient way of working as a team. You will also be responsible for monitoring and optimizing the velocity and delivery capacity of your team with the help of your VP.

As you will also be responsible for the engineering tasks of your team and participating in the development of tools, you will manage and supervise all the engineering activities. This includes technical choices related to tooling, architecture and innovation.
One of your key responsibilities will be to avoid over-engineering, and always find a pragmatic approach when a technical problem rises.

  • Organize, prioritize and maintain the team backlog
  • Take part in the development of tools; keep your feet on the ground by participating as a “doer” in some specific coding projects

  • and deployment coordinators amongst others
  • Ease collaboration with other Engineering teams
