As a Manager of Software Engineering you’ll lead a full stack engineering team, managing engineers with a wide variety of specialties in the areas of UI, Test and Software Engineering.

You’ll help align the engineering practices of your team to the rest of the organization and throughout the company.

Enova hires, develops and retains top talent, so you’ll mentor your engineers while seeing the benefits of a progressive career path yourself.

In return, we will set you up for success by helping you develop your professional skills and strategically assigning your team projects based on your skills.

About our Software Engineering Team:

The Software Engineering Team, one of the largest groups in the company, is responsible and accountable for meeting the demands of our current and future businesses. We help create the “Tech” in FinTech.

We are structured into small full-stack teams, each aligned to specific business lines or core services. We code in RoR, Go, Java, and Swift. We use Ember and other JS frameworks for front-end development. The teams are responsible for defining and delivering solutions through smart interactive development.

Although we are divided into unique teams, our culture of collaboration promotes and encourages engagement across every team and department within the company - no team is a silo. This enables us to align our core values and create strong, best practices.

An Insider's view of Enova

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Enova encourages employees to own their work-life balance journey by providing an environment that allows them to be successful. Leaders value the results you create, rather than the number of hours in front of your desk to get to those results. Bottom line, people respect that you have your own unique working style, which is yours to discover.

What are some social events your company does?

Enova’s social calendar has something for everyone. Events range from comedy shows to bowling for charity. We host & sponsors events, including the Chicago Women in Tech conference and weekly meetups. It’s easy to find people with similar interests; if there’s something missing from Enova’s social list, make it happen! People will definitely join.
