Engineering Manager

Who you are:

Trint is a company that values people and wants to grow the next generation of successful software engineers. To be able to successfully do that, we need great Engineering Managers. These are people who have a strong background in software engineering but have chosen the ‘people development path’ along the way. 

Like Trint's own ambitions, the work of a Software Engineer goes way beyond just transcription. Engineering Managers have not only the technical expertise to take on and provide technical leadership to major initiatives, but also to provide leadership to engineers. You not only optimise your own code but make sure engineers are able to optimise theirs. As a Engineering Manager you manage your project goals, contribute to product strategy and help develop our engineers. Engineering teams work all across the company, in areas such as natural language processing, distributed computing, large-scale system design, media transcoding, networking, security, user interface design; the list goes on and is growing every day. Working with scale and speed, our software engineers are pushing the limits every day - and as a manager, you guide the way.
