Your Responsibilities:

  • Lead engineering teams (~20 developers) to ship high quality software by a set deadline.
  • Set a technical direction with your team.
  • Work closely with our product and development teams in Austria and France.
  • Be a problem solver for your team, removing obstacles and anticipating potential issues to make the life of your developers easier.

 Your Profile:

  • You have already worked on a large-scale cross-team project.
  • You are pragmatic with strong organisational skills.

  • Pleasant work location in the heart of Vienna
  • Up to two home office days / week
