To help this growth we need a Tech Lead to lead a new team of 5 for one of products. The Tech Lead will drive the technical development and scaling of one of our products. You will be working with the rest of the team to build the best possible software, provide feedback on how individuals can improve and take ownership of all technical aspects on and around the application.
