Teamlead Software Engineering (m/w/d)


portagon is constantly growing – and we need you to keep going!

A young and motivated team located in the center of Frankfurt, a solution for companies to finally digitally raise capital completely online and a rails application which is managing thousands of investors – that’s portagon!

We’re growing fast and therefore we are looking for you to join our tech team as a Teamlead Software Engineering (m/w/d).


These are the main responsibilities you will own:
You will lead and grow a team of crossfunctional engineers by:

  • being a servant leader with a clear technical understanding and the ability to manage dependencies and clear the teams' impediments.
  • working with the product team to find the most effective technical solution for engineering challenges.
  • motivating your team on a daily basis.
  • hiring the best candidates and shape their future.

Dein Profil

What are we looking for

  • You have at least one year of experience in leading cross-functional software engineering teams.
  • You have a professional working background in software engineering, so you know what your team faces in their daily lives and give high-level advice and stability.
  • The software engineering lifecycle has been the center of your career and your hands-on mentality makes you dive into code on a regular basis.
  • Understanding people and their needs is your way of carving out developments paths and supporting them in bringing out their best.
  • You're a fun person to be around and a multicultural environment is what you are looking for.
  • You have excellent communication skills in English.

This is how we work at portagon:

  • We live by “zero bullshit” every day. We’re lean, agile, and find pragmatic and efficient solutions together as a team.
  • We need you to work passionately, just as we do. All of us enjoy our time off work - which we often spend together.
  • And when we’re not pushing forward the digitalization of the financial industry we usually find ourselves playing video games, going on annual trips abroad or celebrating our notorious end of the year anniversaries.

Sounds just like you?

We’re looking forward to your application! Please include your preferred start date and your salary expectations.
