  • Team Management and Development: Directly manage and support your team members, focusing on coaching, mentoring, and crafting plans for their career progression.

  • Technical Debt and Feature Delivery Balance: Skillfully balance the demands of addressing technical debt and delivering new features. Communicate this balance effectively to leadership, ensuring strategic alignment.

  • Mentorship and Code Review: Act as a mentor to other engineers, guiding them through code reviews and contributing to their professional growth.

  • You have experience with cloud architecture, application architecture, and network architecture.

  • BSc/BA in computer science, engineering, or a related field; a graduate degree is a plus
