Sydney, NSW

Apply to Zip

We are Zip, a rapidly expanding global fintech headquartered out of Sydney, Australia with a growing presence focused in the US, Canada and UK markets.

We're here to simplify how the world pays for what they need by connecting merchants with consumers and offering them fair and seamless payment solutions, everywhere. We’re also the brains behind Pocketbook which helps almost a million Aussies take control of their money and improve their financial wellbeing.

Our values are at the heart of everything we do. They form our Mamba mentality - how we’re better than yesterday, and are used to create game-changing experiences for our customers and our people.

The Role

As an Engineering Manager for Web, you will be responsible for overseeing the development and deployment of our global Zip website, integrating product search and discovery to drive user acquisition at scale. 

To support the rollout of our global website, you will be tasked with managing a team of senior engineers, plan and coordinate engineering projects involving many departments to deliver on a global scale. Further you will be required to develop personal growth opportunities, communicating job expectations; planning, monitoring, and appraising job results.

As part of the Web squad, you will find support in your Senior Product Manager and Design Lead to drive a culture of data-driven design and decisioning.

Your years of experience in managing frontend development, along with your aptitude at getting things done will help you excel in this challenging, yet rewarding and fast-paced environment. 

What you will do:

  • Establish strategic goals by gathering pertinent business and operations information
  • Arrange, encourage and run regularly check-ins with engineers in your team
  • Track progress of each engineer in the team
  • Plan and coordinate engineering projects
  • Keep the bigger picture in mind, planning new/exciting features and running daily stand-ups
  • Gain holistic understanding of the whole system, CMS and teams
  • Feel responsible for what you do - strong sense of ownership: You build it, you test it, you run it, you deploy it and you support it. 
  • Work in a fast-paced environment where priority changes occur often - be agile while hiking around waterfalls. 
  • Contribute to a culture of continuous improvement and innovation
  • Work in a team with a "customer first" and “team first” mentality
  • Consciously create a workplace culture that is consistent with the overall organization and that emphasizes the identified mission, vision, guiding principles, and values of the organization.

To help us level up, you'll ideally have:

  • Knowledge and experience in business, supervision, and management
  • Outstanding interpersonal relationship building and employee coaching and development skills.
  • Demonstrated ability to lead and develop a department and department staff members.
  • Excellent organizational management skills.

Bonus points for:

  • Past experience in startup environments as a founder or a key employee, such as CTO, Engineering Manager or Tech Lead.
  • Working on search engine frontend with a focus on SEO.
We’re looking for someone who always finds new boundaries to cross - a future Zipster who will obsess over excellence and make constant improvements for our customers. We’ve removed the red tape here to get things done quickly, so if you see a problem, own the solution. You've gotta hustle at Zip!

If you only meet some of the requirements for this role, that's okay. We value a diverse range of backgrounds and ideas and believe this is fundamental for our future success. So, if you have the curiosity to learn and the willingness to teach what you know, we'd love to hear from you.

We pride ourselves on creating an inclusive workplace that provides equal opportunities to all persons regardless of their age, cultural background, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, veteran status, or anything else.
