As Team Lead, you are going to ensure your team members grow as professionals and drive process improvements based on internal and external feedback and requirements.

Coordinating with the Senior Automation Developers, you are going to oversee the training and onboarding of new team members and the right distribution and development of technical skills. You will also make sure any administrative task related to your team will be done.

For this role, you will need to have experience in people management and team leadership. You have demonstrated your ability to motivate and inspire your team members to perform at their best and have successfully led process or technical improvements for the benefit of your team and/or department. You have a strong interest in automation technology and software development from a process perspective, specifically using the Scrum framework and associated tools (JIRA, Confluence).
