    Tech Lead at CitizenLab (Methods squad)

    As a Tech Lead at CitizenLab, your goal is to help the engineers align on task decomposition and planning, and guiding the high-level technical choices. Next to coaching and enabling your squad colleagues to contribute more effectively, you also actively contribute code yourself. Your small, cross-functional squad consist of a product manager, designer, and 3-5 cross-functional engineers.

    Your responsibilities will include:

    • Taking responsibility for the week-to-week planning of the squad, in close collaboration with your engineering colleagues and product manager.

    • Guiding the squad through technical specifications and decomposition of tasks.

    • Giving feedback to the designer and product manager on feasibility and effort of future work.

    • Follow up on feature progress and report to the product manager and CTO.

    • Identifying blockers and issues early on, and working together with the squad to prevent them.

    • Implementing continuous process improvements to boost developer experience and productivity.

    • Acting as a sounding board to developers and helping resolve technical challenges.

    • Aligning with the CTO and lead architect on the technical direction of the product.

    • Contributing code yourself, when all of the above has been taken care of.

    At CitizenLab, we work in small teams where members collectively take ownership of the outcome of the features they build. We work in very small iterations and release continuously. We’re strong believers in user testing and understanding live product usage.
