Furthermore you will be supporting your team members with their tasks, help them make technical decisions, as well as work closely with the business developers to define the product(s), roadmap and clarify deliverables. A flat hierarchy means you will be managing your time yourself and coordinate your work directly with your peers to deliver the best in class products. As the Team Lead, you will coordinate the work and processes of the senior engineers and ensure growth and progress of your members and on the deliverables. As this Team is still in its early stages, you have the unique opportunity to shape it and its processes to fit your and your team's needs.
