If you’re determined to make a difference, voraciously curious and brimming with entrepreneurial spirit, we’d like to hear from you.

The Job:

The engineering team at Mind Gym is only 6 months old. We have hired our first cohort of engineers and are building a greenfield platform that will transform the business. As our engineering manager you will be responsible for an equal mix of leadership and technical contribution. We develop with a mixture of Vue, Typescript, Elm and Node.js. For infrastructure we use AWS and Serverless techniques alongside a modern DevOps stack.
A typical day might include:

  • Enablement of our engineers by spotting opportunities to help them accelerate
  • Line management and mentoring of our engineering leads
  • Facilitation of architectural discussions
  • Reviewing pull requests
  • Discussions that guide our technical roadmap (across debt, DevOps and quality improvements)
  • Pairing and hands-on work that makes the most of your experience but doesn’t block the critical path


About You:


  • A background as an individual contributor for at least 7 years
  • Leading and managing people for at least 4 years
  • You have built and retained excellent teams
  • You know how which levers accelerate delivery with the “4 key metrics”
  • Experience of accelerating / de-risking delivery with DevOps practices (TDD, CD pipelines, configuration management etc..)
  • Diverse architectural experience (service based / data pipelines / multi-channel content)
  • Expert in one part of the stack and proficient in the rest
  • Critical thinking on when to build vs buy
  • Cloud native in AWS or GCP


  • Experience of taking teams from start-up to scale-up
  • Experience throughout the stack with Node, Typescript and Vue
  • Knowledge of SRE practices for incident management & blame free post-mortems
  • Your full stack extends to Lamba and Serverless

If this sounds like something you’d be great at, we’d love to hear from you.
