Software Engineers at Qonto craft polished user experiences, highly scalable APIs and robust banking services, all to help create the finance solution that energizes European SMEs.

The Web team at Qonto currently has +45 highly-skilled Frontend Engineers, from all over the world, working with other stacks in cross-functional teams to shape our finance solution.

👩‍💻🧑‍💻As a Front-end Engineering Manager at Qonto, you will

• Lead a team of 3 to 6 Frontend Engineers and help them grow along our values of Ambition, Mastery, Teamwork and Integrity,
• Drive the delivery of your team to help us bring more value to our users
• Run interviews to hire new team members,
• Contribute to a collaborative, diverse and supportive work culture,
• Make the team and Qonto shine by writing blog articles or speaking at internal and external events 🌟

Note that we call Engineering Managers “Leads” at Qonto but, as you can see, their mission corresponds to what the industry would call an “Engineering Manager”.

🤩 What we are proud of

Our web apps all use the latest version of the Ember.js framework. If you want to know why we use this framework instead of React, this article by is for you!

All of our apps are deployed continuously using state-of-the-art CI/CD tools. Our main app, served at, is deployed more than 20 times a day. Each commit is tested with close to 9,000 automated tests (93% code coverage) and 130 visual tests. As an addition, we run a series of E2E tests on a production-like environment every 15 minutes, 24/7/365. We have also implemented a Design System approach with Storybook and our own UI kit.

🧠What you could work on

You will be the Frontend Lead of a cross-functional team. Every cross-functional team handles a part of our product, for example:

✈️ Onboarding: the team guiding users through a delightful and frictionless sign-up experience.

💸 Spend management: the team allowing Qonto users to decentralize their team’s expenses while keeping them under control.

You will also be in charge of driving large continuous improvement initiatives with a positive impact on the whole Web team. Some challenges we are facing at the moment:

• we want to decrease our hot-reload and CI times in order to improve our Engineers’ experience and efficiency,
• we want to improve the accessibility of our web apps,
• we rolling out a brand new way to write specs (”visual specs”).
For the longer term, we are wondering how we could avoid running all automated tests at each commit, and whether and how we should introduce TypeScript into our codebase. Many challenges ahead 💪

🤔 What you can expect

The fast pace of a scale-up winning SME banking in Europe. Qonto is on track to power one million SMEs by 2025 🚀
A top-notch working culture based on local initiative, learning and continuous improvement (see for yourself on Glassdoor! 🤓)

🤝 Your future Head

• His background: after a first experience in financial supervision, he went from software engineer at Dashlane to CTO of the French anti-money laundering unit, before joining Qonto as a right-hand to our CTO Aymeric and then switching to Head of Web.
 What he brings to the team: together with the Frontend Leads, Florian promotes healthy communication between team members, continuously improves the team’s operating system, accelerates team members’ growth towards proficiency... and chases all sources of waste which can bring down the team’s morale and velocity!

🏅About You

• Leadership: you already have a first experience as a manager or as a mentor, and you have a track record of taking initiative to improve the team’s working conditions, as well as supporting your teammates and helping them grow
