You will be part of multinational agile teams working on Enterprise client projects, where you will lead a scrum team of between 5 and 10 engineer to deliver front-end services, back-end services and/or blockchain smart contracts.
As a Tech Lead you typically spend 50% of your time coding and 50% of your time coaching the other engineers on the scrum team.

Most of them require world-class level of production-grade delivery, given the stringent technical and security requirements of our clients in the financial services industry.
