Engineering Manager – Automotive Navigation Experience

At TomTom…
You’ll move the world forward. Every day, we create the most innovative mapping and location technologies to shape tomorrow’s mobility for the better.

We are proud to be one team of more than 5,000 unique, curious, passionate problem-solvers spread across the world. We bring out the best in each other. And together, we help the automotive industry, businesses, developers, drivers, citizens and cities move towards a safe, autonomous world that is free of congestion and emissions.

What you’ll do
  • As Engineering Manager, you are accountable for the achieved outcomes of the teams you manage, the growth of the team members, processes used in the teams, as well as the team health.

  • Your most important tool for delivering results is identifying growth opportunities, empowering team members to take ownership and coaching them to success, and doing a little bit better every day. 

  • Beyond helping your team to be successful, you show leadership by identifying opportunities and taking ownership for initiatives outside of your team's scope – both to have impact and as growth opportunities for yourself. 

  • You will be a member of the Product Team leadership team.

What you’ll need
  • Experience in leading large product teams (20+ engineers) and a good understanding of modern incremental and iterative software product development.

  • Solid understanding of both the business and product. This will help you to assess the impact of what the team delivers and take ownership for shaping the direction of the team and its systems in line with business objectives and strategy.

  • You are highly empathetic, an excellent communicator, a true role model for leadership inputs and principles, and enjoy helping others to be successful just as much as having individual impact. 

  • You have strong technical skills and can cover any temporary gap in the team if required. You mainly use these skills to identify, evaluate, and grow talent, and ensure the team is staffed well and moving in the right direction. 

  • Software engineering background, with ideal proficiency (not hands on) in Android and/or Kotlin.

Meet your team

You will be a member of the product team responsible for the navigation experience for Automotive customers. We develop an application suite on top of Android Automotive OS, which OEMs integrate and customize to evolve their brand specific digital cockpit.

The team is organized in cross-disciplinary Engineering – Product Management – UX Design setup and holds full ownership and accountability for product and delivery. You will be accountable for the outcomes of a numbers of teams of the Product Team and be a member of the PT management team.

We will invest in your growth and are committed to supporting you. In everything we do, we’re guided by six values: We care, putting our heart into what we do; we build trust (you can count on us); we create – driven to make a difference; we are confident, but don’t boast; we keep it simple, since life is complex enough; and we have fun because life’s too short to be boring.
