Backend Team Lead at OverOps
Tel Aviv, IL
At OverOps, we’re building the next generation software virtual machine. We’re using the latest software architectures to make code run faster and be easier to fix, secure and optimize. As a software start-up building tools for developers, we’re focused on building the tools we’d like to use ourselves every day -- the way we’d want them to be built.
We’re looking for an experienced Backend Team Lead with a hands-on attitude to help us lead and grow our highly qualified and talented backend engineering team.

Stuff you’ll be doing:

    • Work with other team leads from Engineering, Product and QA, in order to deliver great software and drive the product and the company’s vision forward.
    • Develop your team members -- help them grow, adapt, take on more responsibilities and own their share of the product.
    • Manage the team’s day-to-day tasks, streamlining the workflow and improving efficiency.
    • Take an active part in hands-on development of the product.
    • Study the product’s architecture and intrinsics; become a technical focal point.

You may be a fit for this role if:

    • You have a track record of leading productive engineering teams.
    • You thrive on a high level of autonomy and responsibility.
    • You encourage a healthy work environment that’s both supportive and challenging.
    • You lead by example, showing your team members the path to reaching their full potential.
    • You’re technical enough to ask engineers the right questions about their architecture and design choices, and product managers about their product decisions.
    • You’re an experienced engineer with a record of working on complex systems in a fast-paced, dynamic environment.


    • 5+ years of backend engineering experience.
    • 3+ years of experience as team lead with proven management experience.
    • Technical skills and self-learning ability, capable of thoroughly understanding the functional and technical aspects of a complex system.
    • Experience with Java backend development and Java technologies.
    • DevOps mindset and skillset.
    • Knowledge of Unix/Linux-based operating systems -- an advantage.
    • Experience with AWS technologies -- an advantage.
    • Experience in cross-platform development -- an advantage.
    • Graduate of a major university or technical unit in the IDF.
    • Experience working in Agile methodologies.
    • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
