About the role 

As an Engineering Manager at Cabify, you will be responsible for leading and guiding the most important part of our engineering organization - our people.

They have high interaction with other teams and business areas. This means nurturing our culture of collaboration, communication, and coordination between and within teams.

All these tasks deeply impact Cabify's ability to be a profitable business, and they involve processing data in high volumes with precision and speed, offering a unique challenge from a purely engineering point of view.

We practice strong ownership of our services, continuous integration, strive for high observability, engage in constant peer code reviews, and work hard to give back to the software community through open-source contributions.

Prior to taking on engineering management, you likely were a senior individual contributor with a comprehensive understanding of complex systems that you were a vital part of developing & launching over the years.
