Hi. We’re ecobee. We introduced the world’s first smart Wi-Fi thermostat and since then, we’ve helped millions of people transform the way they save money and conserve energy.

With each new release, we introduce technology that brings the ease of automation and peace of mind to the home, allowing people to focus on the moments that matter most.

We’re proud of what we’ve done so far, but we’re not about to rest with lots more on the go and big things on the horizon for us in 2022!

  • We're a mid-sized tech company located in the up-and-coming tech hub on the Toronto waterfront. We look to hire talented people who care deeply about our ever-changing environment and excel in their areas of unique expertise;
  • from software and product development to marketing and sales. We take pride in making a meaningful difference to the environment, all while being part of the exciting, connected home revolution!

    Who’ll You Be Joining :

    Our hive headquartered in Toronto is looking for a new Senior Engineering Manager, Mobile Platform to join our software engineering organization.

    This team is responsible for shared customer experiences and technical capabilities in our native mobile apps. Our mobile apps are critical to enable ecobee to deliver on our promise of a helpful home where the whole is more than the sum of its parts.

    Today, the Mobile Platform team is working on improving customer engagement with feature discovery and increasing developer productivity and consistency across the app with a revised design components library.

    The team is always looking for ways to improve and manage app quality and delivery, while collaborating with other teams working on the shared mobile codebase to evolve our mobile engineering practices.

    You will also work with the product and marketing teams, hear client feedback firsthand and collaborate with the Product Manager to improve the product vision and roadmap.

    The Mobile Platform team and the overall software engineering organization are highly data driven and focused on continuous improvement of our culture and processes.

    You’ll benefit from regular learning days, a dedicated learning and development budget, strategic offsites, as well as other opportunities for growth and development!

    How You’ll Make an Impact :

  • Build the customer experience of products used by over a million people
  • Manage the growth and development of a team of engineers, focusing on coaching, mentoring, motivation, and technical guidance, using tools such as 1 : 1s, skills matrices, 360’s, and performance reviews
  • Hire empathetic, driven, and curious ecopeeps to build a great team, stewarding their onboarding experience to help them quickly become happy and effective contributors
  • Manage and improve mobile development practices; e.g., coding standards, peer review process, testing, observability, launch
  • Manage delivery of your team, working to estimate, unblock and effectively direct our efforts to help accomplish our team objectives
  • Contribute to our overall technical vision and strategy
  • What You’ll Bring to the Table :

  • Passion to improve everyday lives while building a more sustainable future, both for our customers and our co-workers
  • Analytical thinking that pragmatically applies scientific method when delivering the product and when evolving practices
  • Drive to continuously improve yourself, your peers, your team, our product, and our world
  • Strong empathy and respect we are all humans together on this journey building things for other humans, and we value all humans
  • Strong communication skills, especially written, that you use to bring everyone along on the journey together with clear, shared understanding
  • Agile (agile, not Agile™) project management skills to help the team consistently deliver high quality output that prioritizes customer value with flexibility to adapt to change and learnings
  • Prior experience as a developer, including mobile apps who better than someone that has worn similar shoes, right?
  • Experience building products with an accessibility focus we value all humans
  • We've built the above list as a guideline for some of the skills and interests of our development team - but we strive to build our team with members from a diverse background and skill set, so if any combination of these apply to you we'd love to chat!

    What We’ll Bring to the Table :

  • The opportunity to work in a fresh, dynamic, and ever-growing industry that is the SmartHome and IoT space
  • The visibility into a company that has an interesting mix of hardware and software consumer-facing businesses
  • The ability to make an environmental impact, both in your day job and outside the 9-5 with programs like ecobee acts!
  • Opportunities to learn and grow with our in-house learning enablement team, #ThinkLab and a generous professional learning budget
  • A progressive Parental Top-Up Program (75% top up or 5 bonus days off) for all full-time employees taking Parental Leave
  • Stock in the company as we approach #1 in the Smart Home industry!
  • Changes we’ve made to ensure our employees are safe : We are doing our part to ensure that our employees (and future employees) remain healthy, safe, and at home to reduce the spread of Covid-19.

    In doing so, ecobee has made the decision to be a remote-first work environment until January, 2022, until government regulations allow for reopening at that time.

    We aspire to continue to provide our employees with options that balance their needs and the needs of ecobee. Depending on the nature of your work and specifics of the teams' operations, you could work either in the office daily, hybrid or fully remote.

    All future work location decisions are jointly made between you, your Manager, and HR as not all jobs are able to offer all options.

    How does this affect hiring and onboarding? Our interview and onboarding process has remained relatively the same, except those interviews and on boarding sessions are conducted through video.

    Until at least January, new employees will be starting remotely, and all necessary equipment will be shipped to them.

    Our recruitment team is happy to answer any questions that candidate may have about virtual interviewing, onboarding and future work locations.

    Convinced you’ll be able to make an impact? We’d love to hear from you.

    ecobee believes all people have equal value and we are committed to providing a safe space for everyone. We welcome all applicants with diverse races, genders, ages, religions, identities, experiences, etc.

    and we will provide accommodation to all applicants throughout our hiring process.

    Please note, ecobee does not accept unsolicited resumes
