Engineering Manager (m/f/d)


SIXT is a global market leader in the mobility space and sets the pace for innovation like nobody else. We are transforming the industry to become fully digitalized and offer our customers a great experience for all of their mobility needs. Technology has always been an integral part of our business, and always will be. Our engineers are versatile technologists, responsible for designing, building, and running the applications making up the core of our mobility ecosystem. Premium service and customer excitement are core values of our business, and this touches every aspect of our tech stack. We are now raising the bar in Fleet Planning and Optimization. Based on historic data we optimize the Fleet for the next months, quarters, and year. A newly formed engineering team in Portugal will build all the services, UI and integration of data science models for this ambitious mission. All work will be based on our leading tech stack in AWS. We are looking for an experienced engineering manager to lead and grow this new team, and make it deliver on its mission. The ideal candidate is passionate about both technology and people, has a great sense of ownership, applies strong leadership in a complex environment, and shares our vision of fully digitized mobility services. 

Do what you love:

  • You will lead and grow a team of smart engineers on a mission of constant development, enabling them to meet their personal and organizational goals.
  • You evangelize modern engineering practices and empower engineers to make technical decisions: engineering manager != tech lead
  • You enjoy coding, and getting your hands dirty
  • You will work with Product Owners, Business Owners, and Designers (in different locations) to create a high-performance team and improve internal and external collaboration.
  • You understand that it is all about execution and delivering value, even when roadmaps and priorities change often. You do not limit yourself by boundaries between IT and other departments

Come as you are: 

  • You have built and managed engineering teams, and worked with remote stakeholders
  • You have strong engineering experience, preferrable in Java, and experience in cloud platforms like AWS
  • You love supporting other people’s development and at the same time you manage to keep yourself up to date with the latest engineering trends
  • You have been responsible for complex backend systems
  • You have BS/MS degree in Computer Science or related technical field or equivalent practical experience

Additional Information

Working at SIXT not only means creating the future of mobility, but also offers personal benefits. This means especially for you: 30 days of vacation, company car, no dress code, choose your own device, support for pension plans & capital-forming benefits and flexible working hours. You can decide where you want to work from: Up to 50% of your monthly working time you can work completely mobile and from anywhere, up to 30 days per year even in other European countries (EU, CH & UK). 

In addition, we offer you a super international working environment, numerous trainings for your individual development, participation in external conferences and we even organize internal dev & tech talks. Our Feel Good Manager will be happy to help you with the organization or to assist you when you move to Germany from abroad and need to organize visas or other administrative procedures.  
 
It's also important to balance out your work: That's why you have access to our employee restaurant (and yes, we insist on restaurant, because it's too high quality for a canteen) as well as various recreational opportunities such as the gaming area, the SIXT soccer team or the SIXT choir - to name just a few.  In addition, of course, employee benefits for SIXT rent, share, ride and SIXT+, discounts with partners for travel, technology, clothing, etc. as well as free cyber sports courses. One day a year you can support the children's aid foundation "Drying Little Tears", an initiative of Regine Sixt, & do something good. 
 
In addition, your colleagues are pretty awesome. Which is important when you spend so much time together, and besides, no wonder when you get a bonus for referring friends as new employees. If something does bother you, you'll always have someone to confide in through regular feedback sessions, employee surveys or our psychological hotline through the Fürstenberg Institute. Otherwise, we live "work hard, play hard" - our parties are legendary! We also demand and promote DiverSIXTy, a corporate culture of acceptance, appreciation, and respect, in which everyone can develop their personality and ideas.
