Team Leadership

Development Team Lead (m/f/x) at Fashion Cloud


About you

  • 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.
  • We are looking for people that would like to relocate to our office in Amsterdam. We are a highly international team so you will have to speak English fluently.
