About the role

A Tech Lead at IST Products is a team-based role, working part time as a developer, but also having extended responsibilities regarding System/Software architecture and authority regarding technical decisions in your team.

A Tech Lead works closely with our Architects and our team Tech Leads on technical matters ranging from regular product development to softer issues like defining and maintaining technical strategies and guidelines. Typical product development tasks for a Tech Lead could be maintaining a healthy micro service eco-system and system architecture as features are added, identifying and managing the team’s technical debt and prioritizing technical work together with the team’s Product Owner.

We are now looking for two full-stack Tech Leads for two of our teams.

The Adult Education team

· Develop features connected to administration of Adult Education processes. Such as handling of groups, courses, grades, and students.

The Learn team

· Develop features within IST Learn

· Develop features connected to classroom-based learning in general such as smart and simple tools for planning, assessment and quality management.

· Develop and refine integrations with Google Classroom and Microsoft Teams for Education.

About you

To be the right person for this job, you have several years of experience as a developer in both backend and frontend. You are keen on new technologies and work in a structured manner. You will cooperate with a lot of people outside of your team and are therefore a good communicator.

Besides being tech savvy, you understand that aspects of development such as readable and testable code, an ease of operation, and an outstanding UX (including performance considerations), are highly important success factors for any software.

Competence and experience

The following skills and experience are required or highly valuable:

· Solution architecture

· Java 8+

· JavaScript

· HTML5, CSS

· Docker, Rancher, Kubernetes

· SQL, NoSQL

· REST

· Linux
