About the opportunity
In Berlin, Barcelona or Vienna, we are looking for a Web Tech Lead to be responsible for the Core segment of work. This role lives at the intersection of frontend and fullstack, and requires the will to work in a team built around empathy and respect.
At scale, the Core segment is responsible for the infrastructure and processes powering N26 products. As a lead in that segment, you will be looking after the web platform and system, working directly with web engineers towards bettering ways of working and efficiency.
Therefore, you should have a broad range of skills and interests. At the core (no pun intended), this is about delivering high quality web services to N26 customers and prospects, so it is important to have strong fundamentals and appreciation for frontend development.
However due to the nature of the Core segment, a non-trivial part of the role will be working on CI / CD integration & testing, server-side rendering, caching, not to mention the Apollo GraphQL API and the web design system so there is need for some desire to work in a more fullstack spectrum so to say.
For a more informal look at the position from our current Web Tech Lead in the Core segment, please refer to on the subject.

Work on the setup of the web design system so it keeps scaling as it grows, while serving the needs of web engineers relying on it to build new features.
Maintain and improve the GraphQL API and its Apollo driver to keep it scalable and performant.
Improve observability and monitoring to make sure we have all the metrics we need to guarantee the health and stability of web services.
