Overview


Showwcase is a mission-driven company dedicated to maximising the career opportunities for developers all around the world.

Showwcase


Showwcase is a professional network built and optimised for people that code (developers) to connect, build community, and find new opportunities.

The world is in the midst of an accelerated transition towards a digital-first future where every company is becoming a tech company. The resulting outcome is that the demand for developers is now at its highest ever and the number of people learning programming skills is accelerating rapidly. In fact, Microsoft estimates the number of coders to be at 200 million by 2025 - 4X what it is today!

Despite that, the representation of developers, how we interact, and find new opportunities is completely fragmented. Existing networks are not meeting the needs of people who can code. Generalised networks that cater to all professional categories cannot optimise their features and workflows around a specific niche like Coders.

We're moving extremely fast, but we’re still tiny relative to the opportunity ahead, so there is still much to do. Join us and help grow Showwcase into the largest network for coders in the world. We will change the way the coders interact, connect and transact with each other and the world.

Your role is to work alongside our core engineering team to support development and innovation enhancement at all stages of the product lifecycle. Our product culture is: Gorgeous, Smart, and Powerful. And you will be involved in the implementation of every aspect of our product. We are about solving complex, global challenges, where millions of users will interact with the platform every day and aim to deliver a completely new networked experience for tech workers.

Building a platform optimized for the tech community is hard. Our customers understand how systems are built, they understand the look and feel of great software products, and do not waste time with subpar services. Your role is to collaborate deeply with our design and product teams to help bring to market a novel product.

There has never been a time in history where tech workers are so core to business, execution, and our everyday lives. You will be working on a product that will completely change how the world connects, accesses, and transacts with tech workers. This is a high-impact role that will challenge you to think from first principles and draw the future.

Our Principles


  • Be helpful

    Help each other

  • Be an owner

    Own your work, be obsessed with the details. Think from first principles on how this benefits the company at large, not yourself.

  • Team

    Trust + Communication = Teamwork.

    Trust means if your team puts trust in you to get it done, you will get it done.

    Communication means your team will need you, so you need to be available.

  • Figure sh** out

    Don’t sell yourself short, work through it and find the answer, believe in you.

  • Take bold bets, and fail.

    We will be more successful in taking big swings and failing occasionally, than small incremental improvements.

  • Speed changes everything

    Once we agree on an idea, we should get it done quickly and efficiently. Use the momentum and go forward.

  • Stay hungry

    Keep Looking for the new, Never resist change, what worked yesterday is out of date today, and forgotten tomorrow.

  • Be an adult

    Each of us have our responsibilities, see to them without the need of oversight, be an adult.

  • Insist on the Highest Standards

    Quality work means doing it right when no one is looking.

  • Innovate, create the future

    We are in the business of building out products and services that have never done before. Innovate, invent and simplify.

    As we do new things, we accept that we may be misunderstood for long periods.
