As an Engineering Manager, and general cloud-based technologist, you know there's no such thing as "it works on my machine". If you are an inclusive leader, enable the best from others, and adapt your approach from experience of good and bad situations, we have a job opportunity for you .

What you’ll do

  • Develop and grow your colleagues, and work deeply with them to achieve their potential.

  • Enable and support others to work on the software that powers the Click Travel platform by reviewing pull requests, ensuring quality, and leading others towards outcomes.

  • Identify meaningful metrics that tell you how your software is performing and how it adds value to the business.

  • Continuously improve your people management, engineering knowledge and leadership and collaboration skills.

  • Evangelise and spread your DevOps and Cloud Engineering mentality and knowledge to your colleagues, and beyond Engineering.

  • Look out for and design ways to improve our development processes and efficiencies, driving improvement across Engineering.

  • You experiment, test, try, fail and learn all the time - with one thing at a time.

  • You use data available to determine the best approach.

  • You constantly ensure code is running in production as early as is responsibly possible.

  • You don’t do things just because they were always done that way.

  • You don’t ignore the lessons learned, however - even those learned by others.

  • Customer focused - all of the time.


  • You learn from your experiences, and can demonstrate your knowledge.

  • You know and understand the challenges of distributed cloud systems.

  • You have working knowledge with Node.js, or similar, and other AWS serverless friendly technologies such as Lambda and DynamoDB.
