Hey Development Manager interested in facilitating a developer squad!
We are looking for you to join Oikotie Real Estate’s Technology team at Schibsted Finland! Our company is the home of the leading marketplace brands Tori, Oikotie and Rakentaja and here are 180 talented professionals welcoming you on board! At Oikotie, we are driven by the ambition to stay as the trusted place to go for job and home seekers. We are actively renewing our sites and creating new features to help our annual millions of visitors to find what they are looking for. In order to succeed in this exciting journey, we are looking to hire an agile leader. Could that be you?
What would you get to do?
As a Development Manager, you lead the squad of six developers working on our Real Estate marketplace, Oikotie Asunnot. Your partner in crime is Oikotie Real Estate’s Product Owner who prioritizes your squad’s workflow. Your focus is on facilitating your squad’s daily work in a lean and agile way.
In addition to overseeing solutions’ and product features’ planning, coordination and delivery, you also set targets (OKRs) together with the squad and keep on improving processes and working practices. Most importantly, you ensure the well-being of your squad by clearing out obstacles, providing continuous feedback and guidance when needed. Currently, the squad reports to Oikotie’s Head of Engineering but our goal is to scale up the team. Thus you can expect to take on the responsibility for the people management in the near future.
We are constantly looking for ways to improve our practices and you are also encouraged to share new ideas if you find inefficient habits or processes.
What are we looking for?
Ability to speak both tech and business. You might have worked as a developer yourself and potentially even created consumer-facing web services. Besides mastering product (UX) and business requirements simultaneously, you also handle Lean software development and DevOps processes.
Experience in leading Lean or Agile projects.
Facilitation, scrum master or coaching experience.
Knowledge in cloud services such as AWS and Azure.
Fluency in English since it is our company language.
As a person, you are a self-starter who is not afraid of working in the middle of changes. You enjoy networking and winning it together as a team. Here is a motivated, development oriented bunch of positive thinkers waiting for you, we hope you find our way of thinking as inspiring as we do!
