Non-technical Team Lead for Engineers (m|f|x)

Standort flexibelDeutschland, Berlin, BerlinTechnology & Data


idealo is on its way to transforming from on-premises to the public cloud through container platforms. For us, the path is moving from classic administration to modern data engineering. If you haven't understood a word up to this point, please read on anyway, because technical expertise in this area is not a must for us!

Like our customers, we are agile and work with the frameworks of agile software development. 

To further drive this change, we are looking for a* team leader who enjoys communication, processes and collaboration in a leadership team. We work together on challenges and strategic goals.

As already mentioned: Technical expertise in the field of databases is secondary for us. For that, you have a team of engineers. Rather, we value an agile and collaborative mindset, someone with an understanding of how team processes work and how individuals can be empowered as well as nurtured. 

The position of Team Lead - Team Compute (m|f|x) is available in full or part time.
