The Position

You'll be joining 250+ engineers across Frontend, Backend, SRE and QA. We're organised into cross-functional development teams assigned to specific product areas. Regardless of the specific team you will be joining, you will be working on building features, tools, APIs and integrations for one of our products.

Our backend is built with Elixir and Phoenix, with a Postgres database. We use React and Nextjs for our frontend. Gitlab is used as a version control tool and a CI/CD solution. Our applications are hosted on AWS. We fully rely on our CI for deployments and deploy multiple times per day.

As Engineering Team Leader at Remote we expect you to spend around 50% of your time hands on coding, and 50% leading the team.

What this job can offer you

  • Leading a distributed team of backend and frontend engineers. You can trust them to take ownership of their daily tasks and challenges as you work closely with the Product Manager and stakeholders on the product roadmap and defining the problems to solve.
  • Complex and meaningful challenges — solving them will enable people and businesses to live and operate in any country of the world.
  • Opportunity to have a significant impact on the business — we are still very early in our journey as a company, and each change you make today is amplified by the company's growth.
  • A lot of freedom to organize your work and life — you are not bound to daily standups or other ceremonies. We expect you to have regular 1:1s with your team members, but you can organize them around your schedule.
  • A supportive and kind work environment where you can grow and challenge yourself to do your best work.
  • Pragmatic and product-focused Engineering culture — read more about our practices and work ethic.
  • Competitive salary, stock options, unlimited PTO, a generous learning budget, and a set of other perks and benefits.

What you bring

  • Proven experience leading a team of engineers (i.e. 1:1s, career progression, salary reviews etc)
  • Good understanding of team dynamics, coaching, and mentoring
  • Significant experience as a Backend Engineer, which includes building, shipping and maintaining a complex software product
  • Solid knowledge and experience in Elixir and Postgres (or similar technologies)
  • Experience in dealing with ambiguity, working together with stakeholders on taking abstract concepts and turning them into working software
  • Strong ability to work independently and self-guided
  • Great communication and project management skills
  • Curiosity and willingness to learn and develop
