We're Celonis, the global leader in execution management and process mining technology, and one of the 50 most valuable private companies in the world. We believe that every company can unlock its full execution capacity - and for that, we need you to join us as an Engineering Manager.


The Team:

Our Free Plan team is a key area of Engineering at Celonis and one of the entry points for new customers into our EMS solution. The products owned by the team are leading users from signup to data upload to data analysis in very easy and efficient steps.

The Role:

As a Software Engineering Team Lead / Engineering Manager, you’ll be responsible for leading a team to execute a defined mission, managing the careers of the team members and their performance, and actively fostering successful group dynamics to help the team accomplish their mission. Managers at this level possess the technical judgment and decision making expected of Staff Software Engineers, often making technical contributions that have a direct impact on the team's mission. Engineering Managers ensure that their teams have a manageable level of technical complexity and that they are working collaboratively with adjacent teams.  They also jointly define goals/OKRs with other stakeholders that contribute to larger strategic efforts.

Engineering Managers work largely independently on defining the scope and impact of their team, and their leadership influence should be evident across multiple groups in addition to their own. When working closely with related teams, they should help support the team health and objectives of those related teams as well as their own.


The work you’ll do:

  • Lead one of our teams to successfully deliver to their mission - manage the performance and support the career development of senior and upper-mid-level engineers
  • Build and maintain an engineering culture of trust, ownership, and collaboration within the team as well as the department
  • Take an active part in hiring and grow the team according to business needs
  • Contribute technically within the team’s scope
  • Collaborate with Product Managers and other leads on goals and strategies around people, technology, and processes
  • Advocate for the (whole) team; provides upward and outward visibility of the team and their work.


The qualifications you need:

  • Previous experience in an Engineering Manager or technical leadership position
  • Strong technical knowledge (usually 5+ years of experience in software engineering is expected)
  • Experience working with Java, the Spring framework, microservices. Knowledge of Process Mining, JavaScript, Typescript, Angular, Cloud providers, Kubernetes, CI/CD, .. is also highly appreciated.
  • Knowledge around Agile concepts (e.g. Scrum, Kanban, Continuous Delivery)
  • Ability to lead and make decisions to define the road ahead
  • Ability to resolve technical conflicts when necessary, fostering a positive environment for escalations
  • Ready to roll up your sleeves to help your team
  • Strong communication skills (English language), allowing you to collaborate smoothly with people across the business and technical domains


What Celonis can offer you:

  • The unique opportunity to work within a new category of technology, Execution Management
  • Investment in your personal growth and skill development (clear career paths, internal mobility opportunities, mentorships, yearly development stipend)
  • Great compensation and benefits packages (stock options, 401(K) matching, generous time off, parental leave, and more)
  • Work from home support (mindfulness tools such as Headspace, flexible working hours, virtual events and workshops)
  • A global and growing team of Celonauts from diverse backgrounds to learn from and work with
  • An open-minded culture with innovative, autonomous teams
  • Employee resource communities to help you feel connected, valued and seen (Women@Celonis, Parents@Celonis, Pride@Celonis, Resilience@Celonis, and more)
