Position Overview

We’re looking for a Senior Software Engineer with a desire to take on the challenge of managing some talented Software Engineers.

As a Software Engineer you’ll find yourself working with a wide range of technologies, including web-based 3D frameworks, large-scale systems, and cloud computing. Your work will enable our users to discover smart, urban solutions and gain valuable insights to build better cities. Our engineers work in multidisciplinary and autonomous teams, where decisions are made using a bottom-up approach. You will have the opportunity to build and deliver valuable features for our end users.

In this role as Senior Software Engineer – People Manager you will be part of the engineering people management team, which together is responsible for around 60 people.

You will be instrumental in ensuring that we are able to build and scale a world-class engineering team, both by attracting, retaining and growing talent, and by raising the bar on how software engineering contributes to our success as an organization and help each person have as much impact as they possibly can.

We believe strongly in servant leadership. Your main job as a manager is to help everyone become as successful as they can be, foster a strong sense of belonging in the organization, and collaborate with other managers to build a solution-oriented working culture.

We always focus on the long-term and systematic views when building our great organization. We have high aspirations of being the best place to work for all employees willing to makeandimpact and looking for exciting challenges.

Engineering Team @ Autodesk

To achieve our mission, we have built a fundamentally Agile organization, organized to give teams the autonomy to innovate at speed while staying aligned to create a cohesive offering.

We are organized into cross-functional teams, with software and machine learning engineers working closely with product management and design. Our engineers work on everything from complex 3D drawing on the web to building ML-based real-time analysis.

According to the UN, more than 90% of future population growth will occur in cities – new tools are needed to keep up with this trend. In our recently established Unified design unit at Autodesk where this role is placed, our mission is providing a better way to build our cities.

By using AI to untangle complexities and enabling an iterative process across parameters, we are helping architects and real estate developers make more informed decisions and save time throughout this process.

With our approach, we are on the path of creating deep, global impact for the cities of the world. Our core products areSpacemakerandFormit. TheSpacemakerproduct is in many ways a unique offering, so much of what we do has to be invented from scratch.
