Senior Engineering Manager (Platform Foundation)

About the team

Miro is building an open developer platform to support new use cases, extend the reach of Miro online, and integrate with 3rd party systems. The Miro Platform is a highly strategic initiative that strives to empower developers and partners to build engaging and powerful visual collaboration applications and experiences using Miro technology.

The success of the platform is tied to the variety of functionalities we offer through it, and the seamless and reliable integration experience while building. With the platform, we have the opportunity to attract users, make their collaboration experience outstanding, and allow them to use visual collaboration in 3rd party tools they use daily.

Each role at Miro is based at one of our physical hubs and we look for talent that want to be part of these local, collaborative communities. Mironeers work in a hybrid model, with a 3 days a week in office culture as our baseline.
