Olá Porto! Hallo Hamburg!
We already work with more than 200 highly skilled, deeply motivated and dedicated engineers and product developers throughout 5 locations in Europe – and we have discovered the same mindset in Porto! Apart from the terrific location, this is more than enough reason to expand our technology footprint here!  

For our new Porto Office and for our Head Office in Hamburg, we are looking for natural, passionate leaders to help us bring out the best of our engineering teams.

  • You have some experience leading a cross-functional teams; you have at least 1 year of experience in managing people in a software engineering environment.
  • You have professional working background in software engineering, so you know what your staff faces in their daily lives and give high-level advice and stability.
  • You’re excited about understanding and optimizing technology stacks.
  • You can communicate openly and clearly in English and one other european language (German or Portuguese a plus but not a must!)

The challenge, if you are up for it

  • Contribute massively with your passion and hands-on to setting up and growing our new Porto Office, should you choose this location.
  • Network and grow XINGs technology presence in the Porto or Hamburg markets, repectively.
