Team Lead Cloud Platform Engineering (m/f/d)

Hi – we are Delivion!

we design, plan and build Platform as a Service (PaaS) environments in private and public clouds for our clients in Digital Entertainment, Fintech and Insurtech. We apply and breathe DevOps culture, Platform Engineering, Automation and Containerization to deliver the best possible results to our clients.

We could stop our introduction with that one-liner, but it’s important for us, to put emphasis on our culture.

Our multinational company culture values autonomy and initiative. If you have awesome ideas, we are curious to discover them. If you want to learn a new tool or a new programming language, alone or with a couple of teammates, we will happily support that.

We continuously improve our company to a great place to work. We know that, when our teams and clients succeed, that our success follows.

What you would do

Our Cloud Platform Engineering teams create and improve individual solutions together with their teammates at our partners and clients. This includes things like automating the underlying infrastructure or ease the life of software engineers by providing solutions that are helping them to make best use out of a private or public cloud environment.

As the Team Lead, you will be responsible for setting technical direction and managing the day-to-day work of a scrum team focused on building and supporting the CI/CD platforms of our clients. As the team lead, you will also be responsible for coordinating the communication with the client and work with surrounding teams. At all times, you’ll be focused on ensuring your team is executing efficiently, delivering solutions that meet requirements and are of the highest quality and reliability.

Responsibilities

  • Manage a Cloud Platform Engineering team’s staff, employee performance, engagement and professional development
  • Work with client roles to design and develop platform solutions to meet client requirements and assist in developing and implementing a platform strategy (e.g. utilizing OKR)
  • Fulfill the Scrum Master role by leading the team in their Agile development process and working to foster a strong continuous improvement culture
  • Identify improvements in team development and quality including defining new strategies, processes, and required tooling to improve quality
  • Provide expert guidance and critical analysis of proposed changes
  • Advise staff members on complex technical problems including specifying proper designs and use of existing facilities to solve common problems
  • Monitor progress on a variety of initiatives and work packages to ensure fulfillment of platform and scheduling objectives
  • Mentor team members to cultivate technical domain knowledge expertise, and assist with developing other essential skills to further their careers

What you bring

First of all you like to gather knowledge and experience and continuously improve your team, yourself and eventually your product.

You are not only looking for building the next infrastructure automation, you love to learn and improve the whole lifecycle of building and delivering business value to the client.

You bring a background in the development of private and/or public cloud infrastructure environments (IaaS) following Infrastructure as Code principles and the experience with setting up the technical stack and automation for CI/CD pipelines towards a Platform as a Service delivery model (PaaS).

Fluent english is required, german knowledge is a plus.
