At Social Tables, we envision a world where face-to-face events achieve great things!

If you want a job where there’s more enthusiasm than there is red tape, where hard work charges the atmosphere with excitement and promise, where ideas are encouraged, an entrepreneurial team spirit is essential, and people like coming to work, then Social Tables may be the place for you!

Join the close-knit engineer team that conceptualizes and develops our industry leading SaaS solutions and services. Hone your skills in an agile, test-driven environment and have a measurable impact on a well-established rapidly expanding business.

Our Bessemer & 500 Startups backed venture delivers SaaS to clientele from hotel chains such as the Hyatt Hotel Corporation to academic special events teams from Harvard Business School to corporate meeting teams such as Genentech.

Lead Engineers are hands-on leaders. They collaborate with the VP of Engineering on technical vision, set standards across teams, resolve issues, and unblock complex problems. Lead Engineers are explicitly charged with vetting the technical rigor of our solutions.

As a Lead Engineer, two Team Leads will report into you. You will help guide, coach, mentor, and develop their technical and leadership skills.

Lead Engineers split their time roughly 50/50 between coding and administrative (pr review / planning / architecture / 1:1’s). Lead Engineers enjoy a great degree of autonomy in their work. Their 50% coding time can be spent working with one of the teams below them or they can identify impactful work outside our traditional green light process to attack heads on.
