How we work
We work fast, grow fast, and build fast. Life at MessageBird moves in fast-forward motion. We’re a team that focuses on making an impact — right from day one. We are go-getters, industry leaders, and dreamers. Risk takers. Roll-up-your-sleeves-and-make-it-happen kind of people. We thrive on transparency, and we value solution-minded attitudes.
We are all driven by one ethos: Get Shit Done. We love shaping things together and leveraging different perspectives, because that makes our products better. Our Birds are empowered with freedom and opportunity; in return, we expect honesty, courage, and agility. We own our work, and sometimes we fail. And then we get back up and cross the finish line — together as a team. Sound refreshing? We think so, too.
The role: Team Lead Infrastructure
As a Team Lead, you will have responsibility for a Squad within Infrastructure, working with the Squad members to keep the systems and engineering processes at MessageBird reliable and secure. You will work closely with the Squad members and Engineering teams throughout the organization to identify high-value deliverables, supervise project scope and ensure that technical deliverables are met, ultimately ensuring the efficiency of the developer experience.
As a leader, you communicate expectations clearly to all team members - soliciting and delivering individual feedback often - and you are a star in stakeholder management. You will lead by example, taking a proactive and collaborative approach.
You are the type of person who has a higher overview but also knows what’s happening on the ground. You will take a hands-on approach to developing our products whilst also managing and coaching team members. You have a strong technical background and understand the applications and products you lead, well enough to contribute to the architecture and product vision.
