About the job

The Console is quite a big project and is the main entrypoint to access and manage Scaleway’s 20+ products.

We are looking for a talented tech lead to help steer towards the next milestones. You’ll be in charge of planning, tracking and contributing to architectural changes, collaborating with other teams to integrate their product or technology in the console, and creating cool interfaces used by developers daily.

How we work:
Our managers are coders too! We won’t have it differently : we are tech people, building tech services for tech customers. You will be the first to use Scaleway APIs, so you’ll work in close collaboration with every Product team in the company. You will not need to write backend code, as we have dedicated teams for that!

A motivated design team that is integrated in the workflow of our developers
A friendly and supportive, always available management team. 
The console team is a large team of about 10 front developers which are organized into small teams, according to the products they specialize in. You will be a products management, tools & interface specialist!
Product Engineers (backend) are specialized in their products (100% API based).
