Engineering Manager

Ting, a division of Tucows, offers cell phone service all across the US and fiber Internet in select towns and cities. We’re looking for an Engineering Manager to lead the team. Speaking of the team, it’s a bunch of smart, ambitious and motivated developers. Given that you share these qualities, you’ll fit right in.

We work in real-time on live systems… so it requires a steady hand and a cool head. Anything that can go wrong will go wrong (we’re optimists… but we’re also realists) and that needs to be accounted for.

The opportunity:

You love the Internet. Not just using the Internet but the Internet itself; net neutrality, the open Internet, and all that important stuff.

We're looking for a manager to help launch services and features using modern technologies to deliver reliability, scalability, testability, and security. As well as grow a strong team into an even stronger one. Someone who can participate in architectural design discussions and not be afraid to push the envelope.


The experience you will bring:

  • Direct experience as an Engineering Lead or Manager and deep roots as a developer
  • Experience with Ruby on Rails, Python, C++ and/or Perl
  • Proven understanding of relational database concepts
  • A strong driver of Agile methodologies
  • Excellent overall interpersonal skills (verbal and written)
  • Positive and constructive attitude


What we value most:

  • For you to set the example as an engineering mentor and guide the team to success
  • Strengthen the team, and very active participation in mentoring, hiring and career plans
  • Take an active part in planning, code reviews, design, architecture, etc.
