Lead Software Engineer
- Les Berges du Lac II Walkway, Tunis, Tunisia
Hi! We’re so happy that you’re here.
Think-it is an engineering collective on a mission to unlock human potential with technology — by developing and deploying high-caliber software engineers with innovative partner teams around the world.
We’re building a collective approach to distributed talent development and deployment to help companies rethink how to build high-performing technical teams.
Founded in 2017, Think-it is home to a diverse community of changemakers — we represent 8 nationalities, and 40% of us are women. We’re proud to be backed by mission-aligned partners, and our goals are people-centric.
We believe that technology leaders are defined by their ability to solve today’s biggest product challenges, while also modeling and transferring the best practices of their craft to any team member — from entry level developers to senior software engineers.
We’re looking for a confident and people-centric Lead Software Engineer with experience in people management to join our team. Your challenge: lead our key partner accounts with your own team, and mentor the next generation of engineers at Think-it in your area of technical expertise.
80%: Your key responsibilities
Take ownership of one or more of our key partner accounts, including technical strategy and decision-making, product problem-solving and troubleshooting, partner success communication, and coaching of other Think-iteers on your partner team
Coach incoming Think-iteers through their Think-it Immersion program, with a focus on readiness for successful remote integration with international hiring partners
Own and build upon our existing Immersion program track for your area of technical expertise by identifying areas for improvement, refinement, and addition
Responsible for the development, support, and assessment of personalized growth plans for your team of Think-iteers
Collaborate with our Talent Acquisition team to strengthen our pipeline and hiring experience for engineers in your area of expertise
Set an example of responsible technology leadership: Think big, but hold yourself accountable for the quality and ethical impact of your work — and lead your team by example with humility, strong work ethic, and a growth mindset.
20%: Up to you! What are you passionate about? What do you want to learn, and where else would you like to contribute?
3-5 years of experience as a software engineer, including experience with team leadership and/or technical project management
Experience with Agile Software Development Techniques and Tools, TDD, and pair programming
Professional written and verbal fluency in English.
You are self-motivated. You take initiative, are naturally curious, and can learn new things quickly while continuing to deliver value on the job.
You are a shipper. You respect deadlines, accomplish your work autonomously, and have experience setting a positive example for self-management to your team.
You are people-centric. You are excited by a role focused on the mentorship and guidance of junior Software Engineers, and are confident giving and receiving feedback to help others grow.
