Team lead for agile development team
Are you up for joining a dynamic company and lead an awesome development team in our Product Division?
At e-conomic, we provide mission-critical software to more than 140.000 small-medium enterprises, so they can run their business efficiently. At our core we develop an accounting SaaS product; that is also what we are famous for. In addition, we have ambitious growth initiatives and therefore we are spawning new teams. Each team will be tasked with developing a new product, and together with the rest of the organization, they will successfully take the product into the market.
This is where we need you! We are looking for an experienced agile team lead to take charge of (one of) our new teams.
Ideally, you come from a similar leadership position; conversely, you are a senior developer or technical lead and have an in-depth understanding of what it takes to build quality products and to grow/develop a team. You are used to juggling requirements, you have an eye for both functional and non-functional aspects and can help split complex tasks into executable chunks of work. You have an interest in growing people and you like to coach and mentor them to see talent evolve.
You are hands-on, and focusing on software development is equally important to you as leadership. We expect you to be spending roughly half of your time developing software.
You will lead and grow a team of developers through hiring, supporting, coaching, mentoring and hands-on career development.
You’ll continuously align expectations with Product Owners and make sure the team delivers according to commitments.
You’ll design, code and test in C#, for our business domain and internal REST API
You’ll take ownership of your team’s daily work and processes as well as contribute to our good team chemistry
You’ll participate in our developer guilds and collaborate with our tech leads to improve and evolve our software, as well as influence our processes
