Two years ago, Cheesecake Labs had a team of around 45 Cakers — but we are growing fast. Our board knew that to keep pace with our growth we needed to proactively develop leaders. Enter Natam Oliveira. Natam joined Cheesecake Labs as a Software Engineer in 2018. He quickly started moving up the ranks; today, he is the VP of Engineering. How did Natam go from Software Engineer to VP? He became a leader at Cheesecake Labs with the help of our leadership training programs — and then he helped improve them! Here’s what his journey looked like from new Caker to VP.
As we’ve all adjusted to the “new normal” of work over the last few years, one thing has become abundantly clear — good leadership makes all the difference. Here at Cheesecake Labs, we’ve always been passionate about leadership development, but the challenges of remote work have made that mission even more critical.
So how do we cook up the best Cheesecake leaders? Here’s our secret recipe for success.
Cheesecake Labs was built around people who work together. We wanted to make sure our team was creating value for our clients and the world.
