The Wow

As a Team Lead at Betsson Group, you will lead a team of talented people and take overall responsibility for team performance. As the Team Lead, you will take an active role in driving the delivery of your team and promoting a healthy team spirit and culture. You will also ensure each individual in the team is given the platform to succeed and a high level of support in their career development. Our ethos is that to effectively lead a team, you need to actively participate in its activities, and therefore you will be expected to be a hands-on member of the team.


A taster of what you will be involved with:


  • Build a high performing team with the right mix of skills and knowledge through recruitment, coaching, mentoring, feedback, and continuous improvement.
  • Direct line management of people in the team, being accountable for their performance, satisfaction and career development planning.

  • Foster a team culture of ownership, collaboration, and passion for delivering quality products.
  • Motivate the team to maintain high technical standards, in particular when it comes to ensuring reliability and up time.
  • Collaborate with the wider technical leadership in ensuring the team follows architectural direction and for general alignment on ways of working.
  • Facilitate discussion, decision making, knowledge sharing, planning and conflict resolution in the team.
  • Ensure that team processes and routines are defined, organised, and continuously reviewed and optimised, aligning with other teams as much as possible.
  • Take responsibility for resolving or escalating impediments to team performance.
  • Serve as the main point of contact for the team, facilitating open communication and co-ordination with other teams as and when required.
  • Ensure all administrative tasks related to the team are performed in a timely manner.
  • Be an active member of the team, with the expectation that your time would be split 50/50 (on average) between team leadership activities and technical work.
  • Assist your line manager in any matters that may be further delegated to you from time to time.
