Engineering Manager

As we are scaling our product and technology departments we are hiring our first Engineering Manager at SeenThis.

This role includes being hands-on within our tech team, and combining both individual contribution and team management. Your main responsibility is to make sure the team is motivated, engaged and high performing, while at the same time working together towards the roadmap you have been involved in creating. 

You will play a key role in supporting all team members, to ensure everyone is connected to our goals and understands SeenThis’ vision, mission and daily day-to-day tasks. 

We believe the ideal candidate is a driven senior engineer with proven leadership capabilities, who want to work close to the craft.

About SeenThis

SeenThis is a streaming technology company that optimizes the delivery of videos and images to improve speed, quality and conversion. We were founded in 2017 in Stockholm, and we now have local hubs all over the world that serve over 1,000 clients, who collectively push petabytes of data through our systems each month.

Today, our technology is first and foremost used for digital advertising, but we have just launched products for online retailers where load speed and quality of video and images on e-com sites are of equally high importance for great conversion rates.

Our tech team describes our culture as encouraging, inclusive, and innovative. We believe that both personal and professional growth comes from relentlessly solving new and evermore complex problems by testing new solutions together with people that both challenge you and make you laugh. We believe in you, and your ability to deliver what is expected, and give you the freedom to choose how.

We are growing fast and just raised a new round of financing to fuel the build-out of our organization and the resulting global expansion. Although we’ve already come a long way, our journey has just begun and we hope that you want to join our team and our vision to 'create a fast internet'.
