About Glassdoor

Our mission is to help people everywhere find a job and company they love.

The Role

Glassdoor’s Brand Awareness team plays a central role in helping companies reach new talent on Glassdoor and across the web.

As the team lead, you will spend about 70% of your time writing code, and about 30% of your time leading and coordinating technical efforts. You’ll work closely with the team’s Product Manager to help plan and scope work, and then take ownership to lead it through to completion.
