Full time


Unitary’s purpose is to make the internet safer to improve lives and create a fairer world. Our mission is to develop video understanding AI and deploy it at scale to solve real-world problems in content moderation and beyond. We believe in an online world free from harm, where we can trust AI to make safe and fair decisions.

We are a fully remote team of passionately curious individuals who want to improve our online world by understanding its content using AI. We value our different backgrounds and experiences and recognise that a more diverse team is a stronger team. While we acknowledge that we have an essential mission and serious challenges to solve, we approach them with interest, playfulness and determination. If this sounds like something you’d like to be a part of, then reach out to us!

Are you an experienced engineering manager with a passion for AI? Do you want to manage a team of talented engineers developing cutting-edge machine learning technology? If so, we want to hear from you! As part of this role, you will work closely with your team’s Tech Lead and Product Manager to enable your team's success, and you will report directly to the VP of Engineering.

As part of this role, you will:

  • Create autonomous high-performing teams and deliver on the company strategy and roadmap
  • Be accountable for the technical and delivery outcomes for your team
  • Create a culture of ownership and accountability within your team. Push for decisions to be made effectively and remove blockers that impede team progress
  • Take ownership of developer velocity and health, and own, report, and optimise metrics for these.
  • Direct management of a team of 6-8 engineers, which includes:
  • Personal development plans for all engineers
  • Regular goal setting, future planning
  • Progression tracking
  • Performance tracking on an individual & team basis
  • Have an opportunity to shape Engineering Management alongside the VP Eng as the first hire in the role with a high level of autonomy


We would love to hear from you if:

  • You have at least 2 years of experience as an Engineering Manager
  • You have at least 2 years of engineering experience
  • You have developed people through goal setting, career plans and by creating an environment of continuous learning and improvement
  • You value emotional intelligence and are a calming and positive presence
  • You have excellent communication and organisational skills
  • You enjoy working with a remote; international team spread across different countries and time zones

It would be even better, but not essential, if:

  • You have a strong background in AI or Machine Learning
  • You have had experience as an Engineering Manager for a machine learning / AI/data team
  • You have delivered AI / Machine Learning products into production


Unitary is a remote-first company that believes happy people are a must for company success. We are committed to creating a great culture built on genuine interest for each other's wellbeing and shared positive experiences.

We are fiercely passionate about making the internet a safer place, and deeply motivated to become a force for good. We believe that as individuals we are awesome, but as a team, we are unbeatable.

We offer progressive and market leading benefits, which we hope will enable everyone to create well balanced and exciting lives both on and off work. To name a few of them:

  • Flexible hours and location
  • Flexible public Holidays (choose to take public holidays on the days they fall, or take them at a different time of the year when it fits your values, beliefs, and calendar better)
  • Share options
  • Occupational pension
  • Paid parental leave (3 months of fully paid for everyone regardless of gender, location or family situation)
  • Paid sick leave (2 weeks fully paid)
  • Brain-Love Budget (£1,000 per person per year towards professional development and growth)
