Engineering Manager

About Getsafe:

Getsafe is one of the fastest growing tech companies in Europe. Through our app, we offer digital insurance and protect people and everything that is important to them, so that they can live freely and self-determined – regardless of who they are and how they live.

Our team has over 120 colleagues from more than 25 nations. To help Getsafe continue to grow, we are looking for talents who think entrepreneurially and share our values: we grow together, can rely on each other and turn opportunities into successes.

The role and impact you’ll have:

Getsafe is working on making people’s lives easier by making insurance radically better through technology and a great customer experience. We have 200k (and growing) happy customers using our app and services. We’re looking for an Engineering Manager to manage a part of our growing engineering team so we can continue to scale the team and add great features for our customers. You’ll report directly to the VP Engineering. Our Manage squad is focused on features for existing customers that allow them to succeed as customers so that they stay happy customers for a long time and purchase additional insurance products. We try to always make use of the most modern technologies that help us achieve our goals, but we prioritize smart solutions over chasing trends. This role is open to remote candidates.

Your tasks:

Engineering is often considered to be the heart of Getsafe and therefore we need a passionate Engineering Manager for our Manage squad to lead, inspire and support engineers and the projects they work on. You’ll also work closely with product, design, data, and leadership from other departments to establish a roadmap and make sure your team is working on the most effective things to move Getsafe forward. Since you’ll manage a team working on heavily customer-facing features, we want you to have a deep understanding of frontend/fullstack development so that you can effectively guide your team and advise stakeholders. You will manage approximately five frontend and backend engineers, but with your support, we expect that number to grow.

In your role we would expect you to:

  • Support software engineers at different levels on their career path
  • Manage dependencies, work closely with the product counterparts on solution planning, design and implementation (internal and external)
  • Support architectural and design decisions in the team, contribute to the priorities, lead the documentation and learnings from incidents
  • Ensure high-quality development, system reliability, and technical compliance
  • You probably won’t be coding on a daily basis, but need to be ready to jump in and help your team debug and solve technical issues
  • Be involved with recruiting and hiring

Skills you’ll bring:

  • 5+ years of software engineering experience, including 1+ years managing or leading a team of software engineers
  • Experience mentoring and growing engineers at different levels of seniority
  • Strong architectural knowledge across different engineering disciplines (frontend and backend) derived from working on large projects
  • Hands-on experience with react, react native or rails is a plus
  • Experience building and shipping consumer-first, delightful products, with quantifiable business impact
  • A “get it done” attitude with a bias toward action; self-starter with discipline for defining priorities, driving decisions & getting closure on tasks and projects


  • Flexible working hours
  • Home office option
  • 28 days of vacation
  • Individual education budget
  • Employee participation program
  • Choose your hardware
  • Central location & modern office
  • Job bike
  • Team events
  • Free snacks & drinks
  • Employee discounts
  • Employee referral program
