About Qonto

Join Qonto. Help create the finance solution that energizes SMEs and freelancers. Qonto is the leading European business finance solution. It simplifies everything from everyday banking and financing, to bookkeeping and spend management. Qonto energizes SMEs and freelancers so that they can achieve more.

Why join Qonto?

The Qonto adventure was born from our own experience: as new entrepreneurs, we were frustrated with traditional banks. Their services were time-consuming and complex, and the tools we were given were not suited to small, modern companies. So we started to build an easy business banking solution ourselves. Of all that we've achieved since 2016, our talented team remains our greatest source of pride. Qontoers come from diverse backgrounds and are passionate about creating the best product, one with a strong impact and a great user experience.

If you're looking to be part of an ambitious team that's modernizing a dusty industry through design & technology combined with great customer care, get in touch!

- Alexandre Prot and Steve Anavi – Co-founders @Qonto

  • 40% female presence in leadership teams
  • 44% female workforce (vs 17% in the Tech sector generally)
  • 33% of Qontoers are non-French
  • Over 50 nationalities (and counting...)

A few figures about Qonto:

  • Alexandre Prot and Steve Anavi created Qonto in July 2017
  • 1,000 happy Qontoers (And we're hiring more!)

The Position

Join us as a Frontend Engineering Manager and help us craft beautiful web interfaces serving the business needs of our 350,000 customers.

You will be part of a team of 60 Front-End engineers and managers shaping the financial app that will be used by one million SMEs by 2025.

As a Frontend Engineering Manager, you will lead a team of three to eight Frontend engineers working with Product, Backend and Mobile within feature teams. More specifically, you will:

  1. visualize the speed and quality of your team’s delivery, offering support where needed thanks to your own technical expertise,
  2. grow each team member individually, building up on their motivations, natural strengths and skills,
  3. nurture the collective spirit of your team, creating a strong group of professionals aligned on ambitious goals.

You will also contribute to the team’s hiring and you will make Qonto shine by writing blog articles or speaking at events. Writing code won’t be central to your job, but you will still spend some time reading it.

This position is remote-friendly in the following locations:

  • Paris
  • Milan
  • Barcelona

🤔 What you can expect

  • We have a strong focus on quality. We maintain a twelve-month technical vision and carefully monitor its execution. We have a zero-QA-return objective and we already delivered a 36% decrease in QA returns on new features in H2 ‘22 vs. H1 ‘22.
  • We accelerate learning by identifying our blind spots, building new knowledge and sharing it with the rest of the team. You will be immersed in this culture and practice of continuous learning, which we call the Qonto Way.
  • You will have autonomy to improve the team’s operating system.

🤝 Your future team

You will be part of a leadership team focused on high performance and on management excellence. We developed a comprehensive management training program from scratch in only three months. This program is now used by several Tech teams to fast-track engineers to a management position.

Our web apps all use a state-of-the-art version of the Ember.js framework. You can read why in this article by Frédéric, Senior Engineering Manager.

We have released several open-source JavaScript libraries and our team members regularly speak at conferences such as EmberConf and EmberFest.


  • Experience in management and in frontend engineering: you already have a first meaningful experience as a manager, or at least you have successfully tackled challenges that required people skills. You have at least three years experience in software engineering using a frontend JavaScript framework (React, Vue, Angular…). You don’t need prior experience with Ember.
  • Entrepreneurial mindset: you want to help build an innovative product used by hundreds of thousands. You roll up your sleeves to get the job done.
  • Continuous improvement mindset: you put energy into getting better at your craft every day.
  • Structured reasoning: you express your thoughts in an organized, concise and precise manner. You can explain and illustrate complex ideas, both in speaking and in writing.
  • Team player: you treat your colleagues as if they were customers. You provide them with the highest standard of quality and you expect the same from them. You have a positive impact on others and you act in ways that benefit the team.

Our Hiring Process

  • Interviews with your Talent Acquisition Manager and future managers
  • A remote exercise to demonstrate your skills and give you a taste of what working at Qonto could be like

We will send you an interview guide so you can best prepare yourself.

On average our process lasts 20 working days and offers usually follow within 48 hours 🤞


  • Tailor-made remote policy
  • Lunch Card
  • Dynamic career tracks
  • Competitive salary package
  • Employee well-being initiatives
  • And so much more to help you succeed
