How you'll spend your time 

You are an inspirational Leader - As a people lead, you take over the disciplinary leadership of a team within your technical focus area and are part of Zühlke's leadership team. In the project team you take over the technical leadership for your project teams from kick-off to rollout and are in close alignment with the project management. With enthusiasm and passion, you are an enabler, coach and first point of contact for your team members. Through your leadership skills, you win over, inspire, and mobilize your team and customers alike.

You will support the growth of your team - As People Lead in Stuttgart, you will support our growth for your local Java team and have the opportunity to help shape the location.

You want to make a difference - You use your knowledge of complex software solutions, current Java technologies, and agile software development methods to develop high-quality and sustainable software systems in our customer projects together with your team. 

Communication is your strength - in order to develop great software products and services, you build a deep understanding of customers domains, processes and organisations, as well as the requirements in your projects. To achieve this, you act as a bridge between your team and your customers.
