Communication has changed for people. It’s changed for businesses, too.

Intercom is the only suite of customer messaging products that drives growth at every stage of the customer lifecycle—across acquisition, engagement, and support. Today more than 25,000 businesses use Intercom to connect with a billion people worldwide.

Join the company helping businesses grow revenue through live chat, and so much more.

What is it like to work for Intercom?

Our culture is open, friendly and inclusive — and this is something we are proud of. We are optimistic, passionate and positive. We like people who can stay focused with good work / life balance, and who are kind and humble but will speak their mind. We like to experiment, sometimes inventing things for the first time, but we stay pragmatic, starting small and focusing on the problem. We love people who genuinely want to learn and grow, and we take bets on helping people unlock the next step in their career. We’re opinionated by default, for example we run less software and ship continuously. We’re technically conservative and like to keep it simple, but where it means building better products we’ll double down on new technology in a pragmatic way.

What’s the opportunity?

Come help us build a world-changing product, a long-lasting company, and the most effective R&D team possible. We want to build an organisation where people thrive, grow in their careers, and enjoy having high impact through their work and we need experienced engineering managers to help us grow.

As an Engineering Manager in our Infrastructure Services Group, you’ll shape a vision, strategy and roadmap for your team aimed at helping us enable the growth of the business. You’ll lead and support an ambitious group of engineers working on projects to accelerate product teams throughout the web UI lifecycle (from development to production), empowering them to experiment, build and iterate quickly so they can ship and learn fast.

We've previously published posts on the success we've had evolving our core-technologies and on the evolution of Ember at Intercom.

What will I be doing?

  • Leading and supporting a growing group of deep domain experts that enable and evolve Intercom’s front end technologies stack
  • Partnering with engineering leaders and product management to define a vision, strategy and roadmap
  • Building new tools and services that make it fast, safe and easy for other Intercom engineers to leverage our web frameworks
  • Shipping value frequently and deliberately with tight scope
  • Fostering, nurturing and accelerating a high-performing team
  • Helping us evolve our engineering culture
  • Engaging with EmberJS and other open source communities
  • Collaborate with various stakeholders, drive engineering initiatives, and have an impact at an organizational level

What skills do I need?

  • Management experience is a requirement
  • Expert comprehension of core web and browser concepts
  • Experience and expertise with modern frontend frameworks (E.g. Ember, React)
  • Hands-on technically, comfortable reviewing and writing code is a bonus
  • Demonstrated ability to manage technical teams

How will I be supported?

  • You will buddy with another Dublin-based manager, who will help you to onboard and get up to speed quickly
  • You will have a close group of management peers to collaborate with and learn from
  • We invest heavily in our Managers, supporting individual career development through training and coaching
