Job description

Software must fulfill its purpose as well as serve and inspire people. As Project Lead you are responsible for delivering—in terms of software—brilliantly simple results in time, scope and budget.

To master challenging software projects, you will have to enable your team of up to five software engineers through servant leadership, involve highly skilled experts (e.g., for UI/UX and QM/QA), take ownership, and work closely with end-users, customers and other stakeholders.

Key responsibilities & tasks

  • Lead an in-house software development team of up to five teammates

    • Involve technical or business specialists (e.g., UI/UX design, QM/QA, strategy or technology) where useful and coordinate a cross-functional team

    • Be a servant leader to your team and promote the Yatta spirit: Enable, develop and form your team in accordance with our culture code, mission, vision and values

    • Maximize your project team’s output by enabling and developing your teammates and team

  • Develop software products, systems and services with your team—and deliver high-quality results

    • Take ownership of your project team’s goals (e.g., for fulfilling all technical and business requirements) through thorough project management, planning and controlling

    • Deliver in time, scope and budget—and exceed your customer’s expectations

    • Be in charge of project revenues and budgets as well as the quality of results

  • Become a software project wizard—and don’t rest, but evolve

    • Master your project management skills from team setup, organization and delivery to reports and controlling

    • Become a strategic technical advisor to your stakeholders and clients, and help create value

    • Serve and inspire end-users by building human-centric software, ideally at scale

  • Contribute to the company-wide development of the entire Yatta team of teams

    • Promote and share positive results, but also knowledge and understanding

    • Connect with clients and stakeholders and create long-term value

    • Participate in training and development (Yatta Academy)

    • Recruitment, onboarding and offboarding in your own team

    • Evangelize and live our company culture

Required qualifications

Education & skills

  • Degree in computer science with above average grades (preferably M.Sc., diploma or PhD) or similar qualification

  • First leadership experience as part of an agile development team with two or more engineers

  • Several years of experience in professional software engineering, preferably across the software lifecycle (i.e., from requirements engineering to software design, architecture, programming and implementation to deployment and operation)

  • Solid understanding of software technologies and trends (e.g., tools, frameworks, libraries, programming languages and methods) including their limits and use cases, ideally for various target platforms, domains and applications (e.g., cloud, server, mobile, embedded)

Personality and way of working

  • Strong team and leadership skills without hierarchical thinking

  • Great conceptual and analytical understanding

  • Fast comprehension of technical topics and empathy for human dynamics

  • Ability to perform under high pressure; highly organized with a strong sense of ownership—and a pinch of idealism

  • Good communication skills with high levels of German and English, both written and spoken

  • Strong problem-solving and decision-making skills with good judgment and appreciation for feedback to develop and grow

  • An entrepreneurial mind with a hands-on attitude to achieve long-term quality results through short-term actions, ideally with a basic understanding of lean management—and human-centric software design.
