Do you want to make products that help people think better?

reMarkable creates hardware and software products that help people all over the world find focus.

We launched our original reMarkable 1 paper tablet in 2017. Since then, we’ve sold more than 1,5 million devices, grown to over 400 employees, and transformed from a small startup to a fast-growing scaleup. Following the successful launch of the reMarkable 2, which was named one of TIME's top 100 inventions of 2020, our subscription service Connect in 2021, and the Type Folio in 2023, we've set ourselves exciting growth and product development goals for the coming years.

With a brand new campus opening in 2024 at Majorstuen in Oslo, and exciting development goals, we need new colleagues to join our journey. That’s where you come in.

About the role

As an Engineering Manager for Embedded Software at reMarkable you will be a part of the team responsible for developing and maintaining low-level software for our current and future products, where you will have a key role in further building our team and competence. Your core tasks will be building the team and empowering talents on a daily basis. Here you will be in charge of performance, retention, and recruitment. We see it as essential that you can immerse yourself to a certain extent into the technical tasks your direct reports work on; the nature and depth of this work might vary based on several factors, such as your experience and interests or the profiles of people reporting to you. You will staff your direct reports to various cross-functional teams across the organization, and be responsible for their well-being, development, and ongoing fit in the company.

You will be working closely together with other Engineering Managers, Product Development Managers and Project Leads to create the best environment for solving complex problems in a high-paced environment. You will also collaborate closely with Principal Engineers, to drive the reMarkable vision by building technical roadmaps and best practices to fuel our ambitions for Better Thinking.

We also believe you have:

  • Master or Bachelor’s degree from a university or college
