Here at Fashion Cloud we are transforming the fashion industry and supporting our customers through our solid base of software products. We are looking for a Development Team Lead that can help us grow and maintain our web platform.
As a Development Team Lead, you will guide one of our development teams, typically consisting of 5-6 team members. You will be responsible that the team is doing the right things and doing the things right.
To make sure the team is doing the right things, you will be the first contact when it comes to planning. We are working in cycles of six development weeks, crafting and developing the solutions to our customers challenges, plus two cooldown weeks, dedicated for strengthening architectural foundations, and studying and experimenting with new technologies.
To make sure the team is doing the things right, you will guide all team members in both their day-to-day work, unblocking them if needed, and their long-term personal development. We learn from each other, and you will be the key person to facilitate knowledge sharing and provide technical mentorship to expand the team's knowledge. Whenever the team needs expansion, you will be responsible for the hiring process.
Our web platform’s backend is written in Python and we use the Django web framework connected to PostgreSQL and ElasticSearch databases. We run our microservice architecture on AWS. Besides software development, the team is also responsible for maintaining and expanding this infrastructure.
We love writing good software and believe in continuous learning. You will be able to attend conferences, play around on different learning platforms and to get whatever you need to help you and the team grow. Plus you'll join our company trips twice a year which are already a legendary tradition.
Since you will be guiding the team to achieve top quality code, it is important that you are a strong coder yourself. You have demonstrable experience with designing and maintaining large software stacks, and know your favorite patterns.
A team works best if everybody knows what needs to be done and how to do it. You know that this comes with processes that work for this specific team. You can analyze processes, scrutinize them, optimize them and make sure they’re followed.
Every team consists of humans. You realize that behind every human there is a human being. You are intrinsically interested in other people. You help them develop themselves and get the best out of themselves. You support them whenever they are stuck or having a rough time.
We value people who can take a stand yet commit even when they disagree. We subject ideas to rigorous consideration and challenge each other with the purpose of growing. That comes with direct feedback and openness to each other's experiences.
