Software Engineering Manager


Join our Software Delivery Platform Enablement team at Macquarie and play a pivotal role in enhancing our engineering experience. We're building a modern software delivery platform to ensure faster and more reliable software delivery. As a digital bank, software engineering is at core of what we do. Our engineers operate in an autonomous environment where they are empowered to “do it right” and continuously learn, becoming masters in their craft.

​​At Macquarie, we are working to create lasting value for our communities, our clients and our people. We are a global financial services group operating in 34 markets and with 54 years of unbroken profitability. You’ll be part of a supportive team where everyone - no matter what role - contributes ideas and drive outcomes.​

​​What role will you play?​

​​As a Software Engineering Manager at Macquarie, you will be both a technical architect and people manager. With a proven track record of delivering large initiatives, you will own the design, development, testing, deployment, and maintenance of team-owned products and platforms. Alongside technology ownership, you will be responsible for hiring, retention, and growth and development of an engineering team that meets the needs of the business and works well within the overall system architecture.

​Drawing from deep and broad technical expertise, you will mentor engineers, dive deep into technical problems, and provide leadership on complex technology issues. While you may possess deep technical skills, you will spend the majority of your time building great software by directing and managing your engineers. You will inspire your team to do their best work and learn new things.

​​What you offer​

  • ​​Relevant experience managing software engineering teams working on enterprise platforms used by other engineers
  • ​Strong technical background in one or more modern technologies such as Java/Go/React/Javascript/GCP/AWS
  • ​Demonstrated ability to work as part of a team with proven success at delivering complex engineering initiatives
  • ​Critical thinking skills and a solid understanding of how to build scalable, maintainable and performant software
  • ​Experience in producing high code quality, testing and security standards
  • ​Previous experience in reliability and uptime of applications
  • ​Previous experience in incident management and running of incident post-mortems and ensuring any actions are completed to ensure the applications are improving over time.​
