What we're looking for

Our client, a SaaS company in the business of optimising paid media spending online, is looking for a Team Lead who will be contributing to building and maintaining a high-performance engineering culture. You will be given an environment allowing you to use your experience and lead from the front whilst also being a key decision-maker in how to grow our client’s platform.

Our client is a strong proponent of async working - this means we have set up our working ways to accommodate for the fact that not everyone will be online when you need them. This means they don’t do on-call or in-person standups, rather they have a standup channel for engineers to post daily goals to. After reviewing these goals you can provide input to steer the ship and answer any questions. You might also arrange a quick huddle if you feel the project or discussion point warrants it. This makes for a very proactive culture, as each engineer is responsible to ensure they have what they need in good time in order for them to maximise their time and effort.

  • Understand the importance of smaller incremental releases
  • Write minimal yet meaningful documentation
  • Working closely with our client’s Data Scientists to validate new ideas
  • Desire to learn and make use of serverless technologies
  • Able to steer the ship to a consensus whilst ensuring to build reliable scalable software
