Do you have a professional background in embedded software testing and experience of automated end-to-end testing?

Are you an established leader and manager, with a desire to help others realise their potential?

Are you passionate and knowledgeable about music and audio technology?

If you have answered yes to all the above, we would love to hear from you! As part of our continued focus on embedded software development, and our commitment to deliver high quality and reliable products to our customers, we are hiring for a new role to support our growing community of engineers working on embedded software and automated end to end testing.

What you'll be doing:

We are looking for an Engineering Manager to lead our growing community of six Embedded Software QA, Infrastructure, and Automation Engineers.

Engineers are embedded into different delivery teams, working on a variety of platforms and projects alongside QA, Embedded Software developers, and Production Systems Developers. The teams focus on a wide range of products and value streams, such as recording interfaces, MIDI controllers, and synthesisers.

You will be providing day to day management and coaching to support their development and meet the growing needs of the department. You will work closely with other Engineering Managers and Technical Leads to support inter team communication and planning, ensuring alignment on strategy and creating a sense of unity and direction.

Your team are responsible for the successful testing of our embedded software across the New Product Introduction (NPI) Programme. This ranges from working closely with developers, designing, and implementing test plans, as well as defining and maintaining our automated test platform. You will work closely with Lead QA Engineers on each project/programme and own the resource planning for your team that supports the product roadmap.

You will support and empower every member of your team to take ownership of their professional development, helping them to achieve their full potential.

As part of this role, you will report to the Head of Embedded Software and work closely with other Engineering Managers and Tech Leads across the department.

Key activities include:

  • Managing and coaching your team, via 1:1s and development reviews
  • Supporting and encouraging a strong Community of Practice for test and automation
  • Supporting project staffing and budgeting, including long-range resource planning, and hiring
  • Leading ongoing process improvement initiatives across the team
  • Enable engineering teams to make technical choices by facilitating the sharing of best practices and the exchange of ideas
  • Ensure we have the right skillset in the team, shaping our hiring strategy to attract and retain the best talent
  • Get involved with diversity projects to help build an inclusive culture
  • Follow the work of our agile dev teams and look for opportunities to adopt common practices and technologies
  • Ensure the team is equipped to achieve their goals, with effective onboarding, team knowledge management, training, and equipment
  • Introduce and monitor metrics to help with decision making

 An ideal candidate is likely to be:

  • From an embedded software testing background, with professional experience of working in agile development environments across multiple platforms (e.g., bare metal, RTOS, embedded Linux, FPGA)
  • Knowledgeable about automated end-to-end testing, TypeScript, JavaScript, and Python
  • An established leader with professional line management experience
  • A clear communicator and facilitator, with a proven track record of helping people and teams work well together.
  • An advocate for good documentation and the importance of knowledge sharing
  • Flexible and able to effectively prioritise and schedule across multiple projects
  • Methodical and rigorous, with a logical approach to problem solving
  • Passionate and knowledgeable about music and audio technology

Benefits include flexible/hybrid working, company pension, life insurance, private healthcare, enhanced Maternity and Paternity pay, employee purchase scheme, group bonus scheme, workplace nursery benefit, company music events, offsite company parties and free lunch in the canteen.
