Who we’re looking for:

We’re on the lookout for an experienced Engineering Team Leader to join our growing team. This role can be based anywhere in New Zealand. 

Key experience that we are looking for:

  • Minimum of 3 years experience in a Team Lead role
  • Minimum of 3+ years writing and developing software, either as a software engineer, DevOps engineer or Quality Engineer. This ideally comes from being a Senior Developer or Senior DevOps Engineer in a SaaS environment
  • You’ve led software teams before, and have been involved with hiring, managing, and growing people from a variety of backgrounds

How you’ll work:
  • You’ll be responsible for ensuring your team of geographically distributed software developers and testers is motivated to deliver product features and resolve issues
  • Working with Product Owners, you’ll be ensuring agile practices are followed, a backlog of work is ready to go, metrics are surfaced, and work continues to be delivered on an appropriate cadence
  • You won’t be as hands-on as the rest of the team but will still be a technical contributor to the Flux platform by writing and reviewing code
  • You’ll work closely with our Lead Developers to ensure the team’s work aligns with technical designs, and development standards continue to be followed
  • As a people leader you’ll be supported by our People group to establish development plans for your team members, manage performance issues, and recruit team members
