With over 1.5 million children, teachers & students using the product, my client is proud to be Sweden's leading education platform, optimizing processes within the education system across over 100 of the countries municipalities to ensure every student receives tailored support depending on their individual needs!
Having been around since 2005, they are incredibly well-established and financially stable, yet remain a small, 50-person company with a super close-knit culture, focused on encouraging growth and personal development. The tech team is currently 18 people, broken down into frontend, backend, operations and design teams, and, with a multi-year roadmap already in place, and plenty of new developments and growth plans, they are looking to expand!
As front end team lead, you will oversee a talented 5 person frontend team, building new features and solutions and helping to create and refine the frontend architecture, all whilst collaborating closely with the wider tech team and working closely with product owners to create an innovative product with a positive impact on the population! Whilst you will still have the opportunity to be very hands on with the code, this role presents a big opportunity to lead, coach & mentor a talented team, be responsible for estimations and project planning, and going forward, being in charge of recruitment to your team!
This is a permanent employment, every-other Wednesday in the office the whole team gets together, and whilst we would love to see you on a weekly basis in Stockholm, we can be flexible with our hybrid policy!
