Who We Are

Walnut is a fast growing startup in the sales automation space, backed by top-notch investors.

We help some of the best sales teams in the world to dramatically perform better, by easily creating failure-free, interactive, and personalized demo experiences for each prospect - without coding.

We are a young company that values culture, transparency, and achievements, and put our founding members at the very heart of our company.

Engineering Managers at Walnut see their team as their product. While they are technically credible and know the details of what engineers work on, their time is spent safeguarding their team's health, hiring a world-class team, and putting them in the best position to succeed. They own the delivery of product commitments and are always looking to improve productivity. They must also coordinate across departments to accomplish collaborative goals. An Engineering Manager at Walnut works with their PM partner, Designer and Tech Lead to execute on defined OKRs. You're still expected to be hands-on at times but your focus will be the team.

As a Fullstack Engineering Manager, you will directly manage an engineering team and work shoulder to shoulder with your PM counterpart to drive team KPIs and OKRs. The team consists of Fullstack Engineers responsible for backend and frontend changes. The Engineering Manager's responsibility is primarily their team. They need to be familiar with Walnut's underlying technologies and processes to be able to support their team, as well as be the final decisive vote in cases where the team is blocked on a decision.

Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DIB) are fundamental to the success of Walnut. We want to infuse DIB in every way possible and in all that we do. We strive to create a transparent environment where all team members around the world feel that their voices are heard and welcomed. We also aim to be a place where people can show up as their full selves each day and contribute their best.
