Team Leader (Web Development)

Job description

What You Will Do

  • Oversee and ensure the delivery of our projects:
    • It's a hands-on role so we expect you do code reviews (besides development) with your squad members.
    • While full-time development is not part of the role, we expect and encourage you to take part in the development activities of your choosing to keep your skills in great shape.
    • Collaborate closely with the Product Manager and Team Leads to make sure our projects are delivered efficiently following our best practices.
    • Work closely with our Product Managers to guide our clients in their product development journey.
  • Nurture and assess developers assigned to you:
    • Encourage curiosity and continuous learning in the area you are an expert in.
    • Perform regular one-on-ones and performance reviews with your direct reports.
  • Participate in our recruitment process:
    • Be part of the screening and assessment of candidates.
    • Collaborate closely with our Talent Team to improve our recruitment processes.
  • Provide insights to and collaborate closely with the CTO to:
    • Improve the engineering skills of the team.
    • Coordinate activities between all engineering areas.

What challenges you will have

  • You will be given autonomy and real possibilities to support our company to grow.
  • Maintain your technical expertise by being involved in development activities. The Team Leader role remains a 100% software engineering role with some leadership responsibilities. The role comes with reduced development activities but it's still an active "coding" role.
  • Our team is composed of Vietnamese/Thai and foreign nationals (> 8 nationalities). So you will have the opportunity to lead developers coming from various backgrounds, cultures, and countries.
  • There is a lot of room for you to learn and grow in this role. We are open to new initiatives and processes to improve the way we operate.

Why You'll Love Working Here

  • You will be proud of any product that has our name on it.
  • We are an engineering-driven company. Both co-founders are software engineers and led the tech teams at the most prominent e-commerce powerhouses in South East Asia.
  • We really pay attention and care about processes, high quality, and aesthetics.
  • Strong processes. We not only believe but also really work following agile principles. Developers work on well-sized and well-defined user stories, do estimate using points and work iteratively in short sprints (1-2 weeks).
  • We have regular one-on-one reviews to constantly improve and grow. We have a clearly defined process for our developers to level up continuously not only their technical skills but also soft skills.
  • Our vast amount of learning resources (Pluralsight, Pragpub, Leanpub, e-books, etc.) and yearly education allowance to step up your game.
  • Nimble Growth session to invest time in acquiring new skills and to work on new technology.
  • Private medical insurance (Liberty) from day one.

  • Sabbatical month every 3 years.
  • Company outing every year.
  • And many more perks!

Requirements

  • 5 years or more of professional web development experience. Experience in Ruby, Elixir, JavaScript (Node.JS) or Go is preferred. If you have advanced expertise in PHP or Python and want to step up your game learning another language or two, this is the right place for you.

  • Prior experience in hiring software developers is required.
  • Current active software development experience. We are looking for engineering leaders who are still involved in development actively and want to continue doing so.
