About the position 
We are searching for passionate engineering managers who can help us lift our highly skilled engineering team. You will be a central part of the development of our product utilizing both your strong technical skills contributing with hands on coding, but also your people skills by supporting and growing the awesome engineers we have at Templafy. 

We take pride in creating a quality product, and our code is made via pair-programming and reviewed via pull-requests. Even when we are busy, we do not compromise on quality.

We are an international company with more than 40 nationalities and offices in Copenhagen, Berlin, Eindhoven, and New York. Daily communication is in English. You'll be working in our Copenhagen office where we offer a great and supportive work environment with amazing colleagues.  

The role  

  • You will be developing and supporting a great team of talented and motivated engineers, giving them continuous feedback in order to set up team members for success via creating growth opportunities and addressing gaps in skills by mentoring and professional development.  

  • The role is a working manager role, which means you’ll be part of an engineering squad and will be doing actual development in addition to your managerial tasks.  

  • Your day to day development tasks depends on the specific squad you’ll be part of but can include anything from the development of our WebApp, integration to external systems, development of our API, integration to Office and Office 365, as well as deployment and DevOps tasks.  

  • Collaborating with engineering leadership to engage, manage and retain top talent.  

  • Building a positive and high performing work environment based on transparency, accountability, and trust. 

Your profile 

  • Passionate about empowering people and teams to be at their best. 
  • Experience coaching, mentoring and growing individuals and teams. 
  • You are a structured, responsible, open-minded team player who takes the initiative and can create alignment across teams and get stuff done. 
  • You have at least 2 years of experience managing software engineers. 
  • Broad experience with .NET, C# and Web Development. 
  • Experience with agile development processes, e.g. Scrum and Kanban. 
  • Preferably experience with scalable systems and cloud technologies. 

How we work 
We are heavily inspired by the Spotify Engineering culture, and work in squads and guilds. 

  • Squads: Each squad consists of 4-6 engineers. Squads are self-organised and free to choose their own process, but most use a flavour of Scrum with a 2 weeks sprint. Squads have short feedback cycles, and do multiple daily releases in a fully automated manner. We believe in the lean principles of e.g. minimising handovers, and therefore each squad has full responsibility of the features they own from development to deployment. 

  • Guilds: All engineers are part of a couple of guilds. We currently have guilds like DevOps, Cloud, Architecture, Front-end, Security, QA and Analytics. In guild we discuss relevant topics and do proof of concepts. All architectural significant decisions are decided in guilds and applied across squads. 

  • Design: We have a written coding standard and we follow clean code principles. We develop most of our features using pair programming. Every change is peer-reviewed.  

  • Test focused: We like to test the code we build, and we have a continuous integration infrastructure in place that runs our unit test on every push and notifies the team on Slack if something breaks.   

  • DevOps mindset: We are cloud first, and everything is hosted in Microsoft Azure. Each squad is responsible for deployment and monitoring of their own services. All work is managed through Azure DevOps including backlog management, source control, pull-requests, releases, and testing.  

  • Architecture: We build software using the flavour of microservices called self-contained systems and we practice the principles of Domain Driven Design with Event Driven Architecture. Yet we still have strong opinions that software should not be over-engineered and always strive for the simplest solution possible.  

  • Tools: We use the best tools available for the job including Visual Studio 2019, ReSharper, Visual Studio Code, JetBrains Rider, Slack, Zoom, Git, Azure DevOps, Microsoft Azure, Kubernetes, Docker, SonarQube, Cypress, etc. 

  • Learning: We believe in lifelong learning and encourage everyone to read books, go to conferences, and take courses. We want to invest in everyone’s future development, and so we make the necessary resources available to support this. From time to time we also host meetups. 

  • Flexible: We have strongly distributed team across multiple offices and boarders. All meetings and work happen online. This gives us a lot of freedom for remote work and flexibility when e.g. your child is sick, or you need to stay home. 

Technologies we use 

  • Backend: .NET, .NET Core, C#, Web API, Entity Framework, VSTO, etc. 

  • Frontend: React, Redux, TypeScript, CRA, Sass, yarn, WPF, etc. 

  • Hosting: 100% Azure, Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, Helm, Azure SQL, Web Apps, Azure Functions, Azure Service Bus, Application Insights, Azure Data Lake, etc. 

  • What you bring in: We are not afraid of new technologies and are hosting internal Tech Talks to discuss these and how they can make sense in our product. 


  • Work closely with a department of more than 35 talented software engineers, testers, and the rest of the business, all of whom are passionate about helping to create international success. 

  • Work with new technology and agile development processes. 

  • Work on a product that is an essential part of hundreds of thousands of users' daily workflow. 

  • Competitive salary and pension. 

  • Family friendly environment and office hours. 

  • Bi-annual company events and a Friday bar on the first Friday of every month and board game events after work. 

All in all, at Templafy you’ll get a combination of stable working conditions, great colleagues, and genuine entrepreneurship in an equal opportunity workplace. 

We are hiring continuously in Eindhoven, Copenhagen and Berlin. As part of the job interview, you will attend a pair-programming session demonstrating your technical knowledge and coding skills on the .NET platform.
