ūüéĮ What will you do as a Lead Developer?¬†

As a Lead Developer, your main responsibility will be: Leading our web development team for insight and impact delivery through our UI.

ūüĎČ Let's start with team leadership. With your experience, you will support the team to find smart ways to communicate together and design solutions to challenging technical problems in our product.¬†You will be the team coach, who establishes an environment where the team can be effective, helps in goal setting, and¬†ensures a good relationship between the team and other areas of the business.

At the moment our team has two full-time UI developers Jeroen and Zhongyuan.  Outside of work time the team is up for (remote) board games, having a beer on Fridays, playing FIFA, and sometimes doing sports together (i.e. bouldering, floorball). You are, of course, welcome to join them! Our mission is to have at least six full-time developers by the end of the year. 

ūüĎČ Let's move on to development. The team¬†develops one of¬†the most critical parts of our AI product:¬†Delivery of insights to the customers in a way that enables them to get tangible business benefits from our product. Our product is already loved by tens of our¬†customers and, for example,¬†Cloetta,¬†the leading confectionery company in the Nordics, improved its Media ROI and¬†gained +13% more media-driven sales in Finland.¬†¬†

We are about to start scaling our product and meanwhile, we are helping customers by creating new features. Our product is built with Javascript, Vue.js, Node.js, and PostgreSQL and it runs on AWS. You will work full stack, but you are able to focus on either the back end or front end. We want you to join us and be part of the team finding and designing smart solutions to challenging technical problems in our product. This means that you will be doing hands-on coding at first but our mission is that you can focus more on leading and coaching in the future when the team keeps growing.

You'll be developing our product in a diverse team combining a variety of roles including developers, data scientists, data engineers, and customer success managers.  This is how you'll get the chance to expand your knowledge and learn about SaaS and AI products in the marketing business while leading the team to success.
