Posted on Friday, June 14, 2024

The Engineering team at Jellyfish is maturing, and after a year of record growth we are looking to add people who are passionate about making an impact and playing a role in helping us scale. Our Team Leads are key players in helping our development teams achieve their ambitious missions. Team Leads are the engineering part of the Product/Engineering/Design triad and are responsible for representing the technology view and informing product direction discussions so that we build the right things the right way. Team Leads are also responsible for the process and delivery of their teams and setting the right conditions for every engineer on the team to achieve their full potential.

If this sounds exciting, we’d like to hear from you.

What you’ll do:

  • Work as part of a product, engineering and design trio on team strategy and roadmap.

  • Be accountable for your team’s say/do performance.

  • Work with your team to continuously improve your team’s ways of working.

A list of job experiences and qualification requirements is great, but humility, a performance-driven attitude, and a team-player approach are most important to us.

Let’s talk about us!

This is all about you, but you want to know a little about us. Jellyfish was started in 2017 as a team of three with one big idea: engineering is the core of modern business, so let’s create and manage it that way! With the help of our customers, we have built the first Engineering Management Platform, providing visibility into engineering organizations, their work, and how they operate. We enable leaders to align engineering decisions with business initiatives and deliver the right software efficiently and on time.

We believe that it takes a diverse team to build the best company we can. Jellyfish welcomes people from all backgrounds and especially encourages applications from members of groups underrepresented in the software industry.
