About Showpad

At Showpad, personalities and cultures connect across oceans to create something extraordinary. As a top 10 software company in the Inc. 5,000 Europe list, Showpad is changing the game when it comes to sales enablement. Our employees create the engagement and impact that drives our success as we expand globally.

In the morning, we’re drinking San Francisco cold brew coffee with a side of Portland doughnuts – English scones for afternoon tea, and in the evening we’re toasting success with Belgian tripel Westmalle to a Chicago house tune.

About the position

An Engineering Lead has overall ownership on the performance of multiple engineering teams. He/she will focus on improving team and individual performance.

Being an engineer lead is a lot like being Captain Kirk of the U.S.S. Enterprise. Kirk isn’t the smartest person on his team (e.g. Spock). He’s also not the most experienced. Sulu, Scotty, and Bones are all more specialized in certain domains than he is. It works the same way for the teams you lead. You’re not the team’s RxJS expert or go-to for complex MySQL queries, but it’s not your job or Captain Kirk’s to be the best at everything. It’s your job to tackle challenges by thoughtfully leading collaborative efforts based on everyone’s strengths, describing the roadmap and driving the objectives of your teams.
