How do I become a Technical Team Lead at Coolblue?

At Coolblue, we build almost all of our software ourselves. For instance the website, mobile apps, but also the majority of all applications used by our colleagues. As a team lead you help your team to get a little better every day. You challenge your team to come up with good ideas and to innovate further. As a Technical / Development Team Lead you help your team to advance in the technical field but also in their personal development. You provide a safe environment where everyone can give each other feedback. This way, the team and the applications we build become a little better every day. Because we build almost all our applications ourselves, we are looking for Team Leads who can for instance work well with PHP, JavaScript, C # or Kotlin /Swift. Do you get energy from developing beautiful, cost-efficient software and helping your colleagues? Then this is the role for you. Want to become a Technical Team Lead at Coolblue?
