Team Lead - Site Reliability Engineer Team (SRE) (m|f|x)

Standort flexibelDeutschland, Berlin, BerlinLegal, People & Central Functions


idealo is on its way to transforming from on-premises to the public cloud. Through container platforms, databases will be a standard product as part of this platform. 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.
