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.

  • Understand all aspects of your team’s product area inclusive of architecture, implementation and business use cases.

  • Maintain a high bar for technical excellence and quality.

  • Mentor engineers and help them grow and level up.

  • Work with engineering leaders on alignment of your team's efforts to overall company strategy

  • Provide support for production operations of the Jellyfish product

  • Actively promote a culture supportive of growth and inclusion 

Who you are:

  • Strong experience leading teams developing SaaS platforms, including shaping team structures and ways of working (as opposed to executing someone else's process)

  • Curious - great at asking questions, figuring out what needs to be done, building consensus, and executing

  • A committed servant leader, focused on enabling and empowering teams and people to achieve big results

  • Experienced working in a matrix style organization and know how to navigate in a world that is not run by top-down directives

  • Love learning new things and teaching others what you know

  • Excited about data, and measuring and quantifying the things that make successful engineering teams

  • An outstanding communicator and with stellar collaboration skills

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. We love to have fun and win in the process. We only hire people who have a passion for building great companies in an environment where a sense of humor is a must.

Applicants must be authorized to work for Any employer in the US. We are unable to sponsor or take over sponsorship of an employment Visa at this time.

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.

An Insider's view of Jellyfish

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Helping engineering leaders improve team outcomes. We think engineering leaders should be data driven when it comes to identifying poor processes, developing a culture of improvement and delivering high quality software. An interesting problem to be working on that can influence teams across many industries and I get to do it with a driven team.

Daniel Boaitey

Software Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

At Jellyfish, I've gotten to solve technical and operational problems that have grown my career. I started as the first Implementation Engineer and worked with folks across the org to define the implementation function and incorporate it into existing processes. Now, as manager of Onboarding & Implementation, I get to work with a fantastic team.

Sydney Bufkin

Manager, Onboarding & Implementation

What is your vision for the company?

Beyond just creating an exceptional product, my goal is for Jellyfish employees to build on their knowledge and experiences here to found their own companies. I believe in fostering a culture of entrepreneurship and a legacy of “paying it forward.” I hope 15 years from now Jellyfish employees are founders, investors, non-profit CEOs, and more.

Andrew Lau

CEO & Co-Founder

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

As a manager, I empower my team to unleash creativity. By fostering a nurturing environment, embracing diverse work styles, and encouraging change, we generate innovative solutions. Together, we inspire others, push boundaries, and drive the future.
