As Head of Product Engineering, you will be responsible for leading and coaching multiple product engineering teams and upholding high standards as we continually evolve our products in a way that delights our customers and welcomes more people to the platform. As a senior technical leader, you will balance work on technical strategy and execution with growing, building and leading an engaged, inclusive and high-performing engineering organisation.
This is a full time permanent position, working from our stunning offices at Edinburgh Quay (convenient for Haymarket station and airport links), or you can work remotely elsewhere in the UK - in fact, 30% of our engineering team are fully remote. We encourage continual self-development and hold bi-annual company hack days. We work smarter, not harder, and try to have fun doing it!
We believe in a healthy work-life balance and we’re a sociable bunch so there’s always something happening outside of work too. In the office you’ll be provided with the best kit including top-of-the-line Apple computers and comfy Aeron chairs. We sit down together for catered lunches every Friday, and a selection drinks, cake and healthy snacks are available pretty much all the time.

Don’t worry, we’re a nice bunch and we work hard to make the process as straight-forward, transparent and enjoyable as possible.
At FreeAgent, we recognise the power of a diverse team, and we encourage applications from individuals with varied experience, perspectives and backgrounds.
