Team Lead Engineering (m/f/x) - remote work



Posted on Thursday, June 13, 2024

Do you want to use your passion and talent to make consumption more sustainable?

We're Europe's fastest-growing marketplace for refurbished products, empowering customers to acquire items up to 40% cheaper while making a substantial impact on reducing CO2 emissions compared to buying new devices.

Since our launch in February 2017, we grew to more than 300 employees and expanded across the European region. Throughout this journey, we've successfully concluded three substantial funding rounds, selling hundreds of thousands of products. Thanks to our team's efforts, we were recognized as the Top Employer in the DACH region (2023 and 2024) by Kununu and secured the title of an ACM Preferred Employer (2023).

Our Supplier Happiness team is looking for an experienced Engineering Team Lead (m/f/x). In this role, you will lead a team of frontend and backend engineers and collaborate closely with the Product team in a cross-functional squad to deliver an outstanding experience for our suppliers on the Refurbed marketplace. Your work will focus on maintaining and extending our internal and external APIs, improving the dedicated supplier web interface, and optimising internal processes. Furthermore, you will navigate your team through day-to-day challenges and drive our initiatives to success.

Our backend services are written in Go, we rely on gRPC and Protocol Buffers to define our APIs, we use Postgres to store data reliably, and RabbitMQ to facilitate asynchronous workflows. On the frontend we use Vue 3 to create rich and responsive user interfaces.

Together with you and your talent, we want to make consumption sustainable and build the leading marketplace for refurbished products in Europe. Join us on our mission! #TalentForFuture
