Information about the position

Job description, responsibilities and duties

- Analysis of customer requirements and translating them into specifications for developers
- Leadership of development on projects that implement these specifications

If we are awarded with a new project (typically we execute around 10 project in a year) we start again from the requirements. These have to be broken down into software development tasks for individual developers. This is the role of a Technical Project Lead. He acts here as a technical advisor for the Project’s Manager. He does not need to do low level design of each particular code change as our developers are sufficiently skilled to create the code and design on their own. Our developers are also engaged to communicate with customer if needed, but sometimes they need a different perspective. Technical Project Lead makes sure that the developers have the information needed for their work and he takes important technical project decision needed to steer the development.

Technologies used in our company:
We use C++ and Python to write our core software, but we have increasing number of projects in Java and JavaScript. We are open to whatever platforms and technologies that will make us more efficient. We use plenty of helper systems to make our work easier: team instant messaging (Slack), version control systems (Git), automated cross compiled builds, continuous integration (Atlassian Bamboo), issue tracking (JIRA), Wiki (Confluence) and others.
