About You


A keen learner, you’ll be excited about trying new things and coaching others in their use.


You’ll realize that modern applications are more than just researching which AWS services and datastores are right for the job and how to orchestrate everything using Terraform.


Happiest with a bit of ambiguity, working with product owners and architects to determine the best solution rather than implementing tickets verbatim, you’ll preference maintainability over sophistication.


You will take full responsibility for developing and delivering a strategic technological vision and direction for the business, leading and managing a software development team from a technical perspective in an Agile manner.


As a Tech Lead you are the singular authority for technical decisions within your autonomous teams.  You are part Architect, part Developer, part Manager, but fully awesome.
