At mytaxi we are building our second tech hub which will be based in Barcelona. At the moment we
are around 30 people, but our goal is to increase that figure to 100 by the end of 2018.
To achieve this, we need an Engineering Lead who wants to be part of our project since the very
beginning and become a key trusted partner to lead and develop our team while recruiting new
However, you won’t do this alone as you will work in close collaboration with our development teams
in Hamburg too.
As the Engineering Lead you will be responsible for growing a new development department of
around 30 people while guiding our backend and web developers and scrum masters.
You will also act as an important communication interface between your team and many stakeholders
to make decisions that impact our development strategies.
One of our goals is to position mytaxi as the first choice for developers in Barcelona, and you will be a
key partner to achieve this through your network.
