The latest conversations about Tech
Technical Account Manager
Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

People are very open for support, sharing knowledge - You’re allowed to spend 20% of your time (usually Fridays) on projects not strictly related to your product work. If you’re interested in different technologies, there will be always someone who can help you. Very good work-life balance - for engineers working over-hours or on weekends almost never happens and would be considered as a negative sign. There are many occasions to celebrate wins together, every few months there will be a Friday party hosted by employees and more Great company culture - you can see that many people are really into music - playing instruments, DJing, producing, (…).
If you expect the company that moves and iterates fast, SoundCloud might not be the best place. The amount of tech-debt is quite significant what slows down the engineering a lot. But because of this could be a great place for training your architectural skills, navigating toward goals with limited resources. SoundCloud might improve on testing - since there is no QA team onsite, engineers need to rely on automated tests or external support. This not always can be enough and quite often simple mistakes make it to the production.5
