Your mission

A Team Lead is a senior-level professional responsible for overseeing a team of cloud engineers and coordinating their efforts in designing, implementing, and maintaining cloud infrastructure solutions for an organization. The Team Lead builds and maintains a close relationship with customers, serving as the first point of contact to understand their business and software roadmap. It’s a hands-on position, so the Team Lead is part of the team of cloud engineers as well. Comment end  

Your key responsibilities are divided in two main subjects:

  • Customer relations
    • Working with staff and senior engineers to proactively draw up,  propose and fulfill a roadmap for the customer's cloud infrastructure.
    • Recognize new solutions, possibilities and improvements from frequent interactions with client stakeholders.

    • Manage your team members, provide feedback, assist in problem-solving, and you foster a positive and collaborative work environment.
    • Work together with team members on developing individualized development plans. 
    • You inspire, motivate and guide the team towards achieving common goals.

Skills you bring to the table:

A team lead cloud engineer plays a crucial role in driving the success of cloud infrastructure projects within an organization by effectively managing a team of engineers, maintaining customer relationships, and delivering high-quality solutions that meet business needs. You understand business goals and are able to translate them into technical solutions. Therefore you are a senior cloud engineer with good customer relations and project management skills.

You have a learning and growth mindset; which means that you like being part of a company that wants to grow and improve to make more impact.

Concrete, you must have:
