As the Engineering Manager at Trengo, you are the servant leader of 1-3 multidisciplinary engineering teams. These teams are part of the product team. Your job is to ensure that the engineers are very motivated and can deliver qualitative solutions in an effective way. You’re 60-80% coaching the engineers and 20-40% hands-on helping them upon your own initiative.
At Trengo, we believe in a world where technology empowers the relationship between companies and their customers. That’s why our mission is to build the smartest customer engagement platform to replace repetitive work with meaningful conversations. How do we do that? Our software makes it easy for customer-facing teams to communicate with customers via multiple channels, all in one shared inbox. Email, Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, live-chat, you name it. With a Series A investment of $36M led by Insight Partners and Peak Capital and becoming one of the four official WhatsApp Business Solutions Providers in the Netherlands, we empower our customers to scale their businesses and optimize the channels their clients truly prefer.
