Lead Frontend Engineer - Angular (f/m/x) -
Comtravo - Business travel made simple
We are a team of travel experts, tech enthusiasts and customer support heroes – with the shared purpose to simplify business travel. Comtravo provides small and medium-sized companies a truly unique solution. Travelers or travel managers can book and manage their business trips with one simple text message. Using state-of-the-art technologies, such as NLP and machine learning techniques, we are automating our fulfilment pipeline. This enables our in-house travel experts to focus on complex requests and the individual needs of our clients.
Our tech stack:
The frontend is built in Angular / Typescript. We have two major applications - one for our customers and one for our back-office team of travel agents.
Both applications interact with our in-house-built booking engine and e.g. allow booking of flight tickets, management of bookings, reporting, etc.
We invest heavily in shared components, libraries, automated tests, monitoring and sane interfaces. Together with a strong CI/CD pipeline, we are able to release many times per day to production.
What we’re looking for:
Comtravo currently has one frontend team of about 7 engineers which takes care of feature and component development, usability improvements, etc. The team currently works together with a Principal Engineer guiding them on technical decisions, as well as a Designer and Product Owner.
What we are missing is a dedicated Engineering Manager capable of leading the team, manage the day to day challenges (technical product management, 1:1s with engineers, interaction with Product, etc.) and grow the team further.
For this, we are looking for an experienced, hands-on Team Lead.
You will be working primarily on leading, organizing and inspiring your team and peers, but we are still small enough that a portion of your time will probably also be spent on coding.
