Octopus Deploy is one of Australia’s fastest-growing and most successful software companies. Today we help over 150,000 people worldwide to deliver working software to production.

If you have a commitment to excellence, a desire to delight customers, and want to be a member of a fast-growing team, you’ll love this position.

You will be a great fit for this role if

  • You are an experienced people manager, and have been a software developer in the past.
  • You have a firm grasp of the software trade using any language or toolset (but C# and Typescript experience is helpful).
  • You take ultimate responsibility for the people in your team, the way they work, and the results they deliver.
  • You empower your team to get things done and you drive results collaboratively.
  • You recognise dysfunction in your team and work effectively to resolve it in a timely manner.
  • You give radically candid feedback which is timely, actionable, and helpful.
  • The feedback you give in performance reviews is rarely a surprise because it summarises the timely, actionable, and helpful feedback your teammate has been receiving.

You will enjoy this role if

  • You thrive on solving people problems.
  • You like managing a team of autonomous workers, holding them accountable to results and letting them manage how they get there.
  • You like a balance of freedom and responsibility, being treated as an adult.
  • You want to do the best work of your life with other like-minded people.
  • You enthusiastically accept radically candid feedback, feedback that is thoughtful, timely, and directly actionable, and offer the same benefit to others.

A typical day might include

  • Working where you work best, perhaps in a home office designed by you, using a device of your choosing, with or without music, in an atmosphere you create for yourself.
  • Clarifying the goals, roles, and execution plans for your team.
  • Helping your team understand our strategy and how they are contributing to the big picture.
  • Proactively coaching people remotely, accelerating them along their personal growth trajectory.
  • Being a positive contributor to how we approach people and culture in the engineering team, including hiring, firing, performance reviews, culture fit, salary reviews, and how we pay.
