Solarwinds Inc. Engineering Manager for MSP products in Brno, Czech Republic


Hello, we are SolarWinds , a multinational software development company that creates cool IT management software that our customers love.

We believe in having things under control and so do our customers. That's why N-central, our award winning solution for remote monitoring, management and automation, is part of our portfolio. You can contribute to its success by joining our Brno product development team, take responsibility of 1-2 product scrum teams and help shape its future success.


What would you do?

You will be responsible for 1 -2 self-organizing teams working according to Agile/Scrum principles and you will be helping them to be successful in all areas of software engineering and product development.

Specifically, you will:

  • Lead team to maintain the culture of continuous improvement and innovation

  • Develop people on the team, hire new team members and grow technical leadership and engineering competences

  • Ensure that quality is a top priority for the engineering team

  • Participate on product feature discussions, high level analysis and ensuring we are delivering features with great usability

  • Work closely with Product Owner to understand software requirements and drivers of customer satisfaction

We like to have fun while at work and we hope you will take part - be it on stand-ups with ice-cream, team barbecues on terrace or going for fancy lunch once in a while (or more importantly having another opinion in a regular discussion on what actually counts as a "fancy" lunch).

What are we using?

The main technologies we use on the MSP products are Java, Javascript, C++, C#, SQL, REST, Python and other scripting languages.

The tools we use on daily basis are IntelliJ IDEA, GitHub, Perforce, PostgreSQL, Jenkins, JIRA, Confluence, AWS . We work on Linux.

We use English on daily basis (e.g. for communication with Canada and USA).


What do we expect from you?

We want you to know what software development is about - having both some theoretical and mainly practical background. We would like you to show us that you are good in things you know and will be able to use them as part of our team.

We would like you to have a practical experience with agile methodologies, continuous integration, test automation and leading of software development team. You need to be able to demonstrate strong communication skills and problem solving attitude.

As we are open to using various technologies throughout our product portfolio we need to you to be willing and enjoying to learn new things.

What awaits for you besides the top technology and great coworkers?

We offer many benefits – let us list the main ones: competitive salary, bonuses, and growth opportunities.

We promote self-education and support you in learning new things – through conferences, learning tutorials, and mentors. You can enjoy comfortable office spaces with free and tasty coffee, snacks, game rooms, soft chairs, billiard, Wii, and PS 4 with VR.
