Job Requirements:

As Development Manager Product Development at Virtuagym, you’ll be working within the development department. The department consists of several tribes, defined along circles of concern and circles of influence. A development manager performs line management duties for one of the tribes, which mainly concerns supporting and coaching employees within that tribe.

At Virtuagym, developers and engineers are part of a tribe, they’re part of a chapter, and they work in squads. We believe in self-organisation, and we believe in self-sufficiency. Our core values are Quality, Stability, and Predictability. We believe in setting SMART goals for personal growth, and of course company growth. We strongly believe in taking ownership.

As development manager, you’ll report directly to the Head of Development, and you’ll work closely with peers in parallel tribes, and with other stakeholders. One of your closest partners will be an Agile Coach, who will help you coach the people, and the squads they’re a part of.

We’re a scaling company, and we believe we need more of the right people to get to the next level. If you believe as we do, read on!

The Development Manager Product Development is the go-to person for all development-related concerns within Product Development. Product Development is where the technical side meets the business side. Product Development squads consist of developers, one or more QA engineers, a product owner, and possibly others, depending on the Product Domain they own.

We believe in validation; releasing early, and basing our next steps on what we find. For science!

In your day-to-day as development manager you’ll be talking to your counterparts, as well as Product people, Domain experts, and of course the people in the squads. You’ll make sure escalations are handled promptly and professionally. You ensure your people can work well, can grow, and are happy. You inspire confidence, and you’re a strong motivator. You’re a partner in dialogue with the Head of Development. Last but not least, you have a positive view of human nature.

You have:

  • A proven track record of excellence (references a definite plus);

  • A keen interest in matters technological, as well as business-related;

  • Strong people skills;

  • A well-developed idea of your qualities and growth opportunities;

  • Ideas and opinions, and the wisdom to apply them well.

Of course, proven managerial experience is a plus.

What Do We Offer?

A challenging full time position and great potential for you to grow and develop yourself
Great freedom and autonomy to take ownership, make decisions and have major impacts
Various extra benefits such as: Knowledge-exchange Program, free Dutch classes and more!
Good compensation and 25 paid holidays per year (public holidays excluded)
Unique start-up company culture with motivated and fun colleagues in the beautiful center of Amsterdam
