Job Description

We’re on a mission to create a diverse group of future leaders. We do that through professional apprenticeships because we believe learning on-the-job creates a more equitable and successful path to careers. We find, train and support talented individuals, wherever they are in their career journey, and equip them with the in-demand tech, software engineering, and data skills to transform their careers and deliver a better route to growth for their employers.

We’ve had some big achievements. We hit 10,000 apprentices in our community - and counting. We launched one of the largest data apprenticeship programs in the UK with Jaguar Land Rover, and we’ve partnered with companies like Mars, Verizon and CitiBank. Not to forget becoming a mission-driven EdTech unicorn after our $220m Series D.

But we aren’t stopping here. Join Multiverse and build the future of learning at work.

The role of an Engineering Manager at Multiverse includes:

🤼 Leading & Motivating People

  • You’ll lead engineers from Apprentice to Senior level in one or more cross functional squads, ensuring these squads are high performing and delivering business impact in a sustainable way.

  • You’ll build and maintain the structure of your squad, managing recruitment, performance and retention to set it up for long term success.

Driving Engineering Quality

  • You’ll support engineers in aligning technical and product approaches with business needs, keeping sustainable delivery and a focus on business results in a healthy balance. You’ll need to understand what trade offs are being made and lead discussions to help your team arrive at “right-sized” solutions.

  • You’ll use your strong product and business acumen to spot emerging opportunities, and use the skills of your team and the cross-functional relationships you’ll develop to capitalise on these effectively.

🏆 Ownership & Impact

  • You’ll embrace productive conflict and remove blockers to drive your team forward. You aren’t afraid of making quick, data-driven decisions to keep up momentum.

  • You’ll demonstrate high ownership for your squad and the work it produces, and institute practices to continually optimise both of these over time.

To succeed in this role you’ll like to have the following characteristics and experiences:

  • You are an engineer-at-heart and can leverage your technical skills as required.

  • You focus on business outcomes and the health of your team, and see other things as secondary.

  • You are an experienced manager and have been responsible for the full employee lifecycle from recruitment to off-boarding. You’ve dealt with conflict, managed promotions and performance processes.

  • You know what a high performing team looks like and the ways to create and maintain one.

  • You are product minded. Having worked in a product led organisation you have demonstrated experience identifying and implementing work that positively impacts the user.

  • You value relationships with Product and UX partners and can represent the engineering function with confidence and authority.

  • You embrace uncertainty. You are comfortable working in ambiguous situations and can create clarity from them. As an expert communicator you can break down complex problems and discuss them with stakeholders at all levels of the business.

  • You are mission driven. We are making a difference to the lives of thousands, and this drives us forwards every day.


  • Time off - 27 days holiday, plus 7 additional days off: 1 life event day, 2 volunteer days and 4 company-wide wellbeing days

  • Health & wellbeing - private medical Insurance with Bupa, a medical cashback scheme, life insurance, and access to Spill - all in one mental health support

  • Hybrid & remote working - occasional visits to the London office

  • Equity - every Multiverse employee has ownership in the business through equity options

  • Team fun - weekly socials and regular offsite events
