Details of the offer

Your Mission
Luno is a leading global cryptocurrency company operating across more than 40 countries and with offices in London, Singapore and Cape Town. We're Series B-funded and backed by some of the top tech investors in the world.
Our products and services make it safe and easy for people and businesses to store, buy, use and learn about cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. Our vision is to upgrade the world to a better financial system.
How we work
Our engineering team (currently >90 engineers) is split into organisations which we call Fleets. Each Fleet focuses on a core area of our product (consumer applications, business operations, new business, growth and marketing etc.). Each Fleet contains multiple smaller teams called Pods, each of which focuses on a specific aspect of that product.
A pod will include a product owner, back-end engineers, Android and iOS developers, and web developers who each bring a unique perspective to the problem you are all contributing towards. Engineering Managers at Luno take ownership and manage at Fleet-level.
We're agile, use continuous integration and continuous delivery, deploying to production every single day.
What you'll do
Manage multiple teams of Software Engineers, totalling up to 15 direct line reports spread across London, Cape Town and Johannesburg
Attract, hire and grow exceptional Software Engineers
Provide leadership to your teams, including setting clear direction, and enabling alignment on strategy and business objectives (OKRs)
Oversee key projects, ensuring your teams deliver projects on time and with high quality
Work with Product Managers to plan and prioritise
Serve your people - mentoring, coaching and growing your team members

Your first 90 days
You will start at Luno by learning our processes, meeting the wider team and starting our engineering on-boarding program. After getting comfortable with the basics, you'll start learning our idiomatic patterns in a safe, easy-to-follow way - by building your own toy micro services. You'll get to practice how we do design docs, code reviews, deployments, events, logging and monitoring.
You'll meet the Pods you'll be leading and quickly align on the teams' current OKRs and product roadmap. We succeed as a team, so we will provide you with regular feedback from your manager (Engineering Director) and peers (we currently have four Engineering Managers) and will encourage you to do the same.
As an experienced Engineering Manager, you'll need
Experience in leading software engineering teams
A servant-leadership mentality
Experience with the OKR framework
Proven experience in hiring, growing software engineers, and performance management
A degree or equivalent working experience in a technical discipline (e.g. computing, mathematics, physics)
Experience writing code and designing software systems
To exemplify the 10 Luno Moontality values

What's in it for you?
We're providing a phenomenal opportunity to learn more about cryptocurrencies, blockchain, emerging markets, and together we'll work together to scale a global business.
You'll work and lead multiple globally distributed teams.
You'll gain experience working in a mobile-first fast scaling business with 3 million customers, handling billions of USD transactions, where quality and security come first.
We'll provide you with support and learning opportunities to further develop as an engineering leader through our leadership development program, and access to thousands of Udemy courses.

Don't be put off if you don't tick all the boxes – they're a guide based on what we'd love to see but we appreciate that excellent leaders have diverse backgrounds.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
