Fashion Cloud is Europe's leading B2B platform for the fashion industry. We connect brands and retailers and make their cooperation more efficient.
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.
About the job
As a Development Team Lead, you will guide one of our development teams, consisting of 4 team members. This team is working closely with our Data Integration Management team, crafting and developing software solutions for them to manage the continuous flow of data that powers our other products.
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 Node.js and we use the Express web framework connected to a MongoDB database. We run our microservice architecture on AWS, connecting our services through message queues. 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.Requirements
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 a highly international team so you will have to speak English fluently.
We have built Fashion Cloud as an international community from day one and now have people from almost 30 nations working in the company. We continue to welcome new employees coming from any country. Within Fashion Cloud, we look at individual people and not at the country they were born in. We keep an open dialogue about what moves all of us and how we can all work together in the best way.
