Technical Lead

amsterdam | full time APPLY DIRECTLY

If you are an experienced full stack developer, and know how to lead a tech team: you have come to the right place! We work on challenging projects, focussed on one customer at a time, in a very international team. Emakina is looking for a Technical Lead!

As a Technical Lead:

You spend between 40% to 80% of your time working on user stories in the sprint. The remaining is spent on a combination of architecture, consulting, stakeholder management and mentoring fellow team members.

We trust you to make decisions that help our clients forward. We give you the freedom to be solution oriented. With that comes the ability to explain your choices to different target audiences and the ability to set and manage client expectations.

Technical know-how alone isn’t enough. You understand the complex challenges that lie behind a business case, plus the experience of our ultimate client: the end user. You’ll be working on major projects – with budgets to match – at the very core of our clients’ business. Your vision leads the way and you are comfortable communicating this vision with all stakeholders involved, be it from the customer or your own colleagues.

We like to use a range of technologies like .Net, Java, sass, JavaScript and Salesforce Commerce Cloud (a SaaS e-commerce platform) together with best of class agile tools like Jira, Stash (git), and Bamboo for continuous integration and deployment.

Your main responsibilities:

  • You are responsible for the technical delivery of the platform.
  • You define large-scale web-based solutions and guide a focused and dedicated team of talented developers to bring them to life.
  • You help different specialists to work together and excel.
  • You continuously develop your soft- and hard skills. You share your knowledge with the team and inspire them with your know-how.
  • You work with multidisciplinary teams and you work agile.

The way we work:

The agile way of working is embedded throughout the organisation – whether it be strategy, concept, tech or design projects. With solidly established processes that let you focus your full attention and expertise on what you do best. We believe in delivering our projects on time, and in accordance with the customer needs, whilst having fun. Challenging projects, focussed on one customer at the time.

About the work environment:

Emakina is a friendly and informal workplace where you can work with some of the biggest brands and e-commerce retailers in Europe. You’ll work with dynamic professionals and ego-free team players who value personal initiative and development. You can count on a competitive salary, knowledge sharing (through our Nerd Summits, books and passionate conversations with other experts) all within an inspiring international environment. We have over 20 different nationalities at our office.

To sweeten the deal we also have plenty of extracurricular activities from ski trips to beach barbecues or trips around the canals with the company boat. Every Friday afternoon we head up to the 4th floor to start the weekend off with some drinks.
