Your Impact 💥

As a Team Lead, you will be leading one of our awesome feature teams (i.e. Listings, Search & Discovery, Bookings, etc) inside the Product Development division. As we have reached the scaleup phase at HousingAnywhere, our rapid growth has brought on new challenges. We are building new exciting features to improve our marketplace platform, and, at the same time, we are focused on the quality and scalability of our development infrastructure.

You have the opportunity to bring impact by working closely with one of our POs to solve interesting technical challenges with the support of your team. As a team lead, you are also expected to be accountable for the team delivery, and to be a mentor, a role model for the people reporting into you, of course you will also support, empower and guide them to move forward in our Career Ladder™ and achieve their career goals. You will also be responsible to help us scale the teams by hiring the missing software engineers in your team. At the same time you will be a champion of our engineering culture and will ensure that the technology vision and our principles are well understood and applied in your team.

And our stack?

In the frontend we are React lovers. We use Redux, CSS-in-JS, TypeScript, NodeJS and all tools related to this stack. Our backend is powered by Golang backed with a Postgres database. We’re currently moving our backend to a service-oriented architecture (microservices). Our main infrastructure is in Google Cloud Platform. We've been using React, GraphQL and Golang in production environments since the early days. A few years ago we started using Kubernetes, and nowadays all our new services run in the cluster.
