We are looking for a full-time Principal Engineer to join our Global Engineering team. In this role, you will be part of bringing technical excellence across different squads to help us scale the Engineering team in a sustainable way. Do you enjoy fostering technical discussions with the goal to commit to the best possible solution for a specific use case? Will you take a key role in our global success, a feat directly linked to the architectural design that you will proactively drive and contribute to? Are you convinced that software testing and engineering best practices are essential to spur that success? Accompany us on the road to making parcelLab a reference in technology, which is at the core of the Operations Experience Management.
As a digital-first company, we offer greater flexibility in working location. Therefore, you can work from one of our offices in London or Munich or remotely within the UK, Germany, or Spain.
What you can expect:
Provide technical expertise and leadership among different squads
Develop, deploy, architect, and operate systems that serve millions of users
Spearhead good engineering practices within the squads
Mentor engineers and shape their technical career paths
Incentivise knowledge sharing across departments, writing blog posts, drawing architecture, giving talks and online meet-ups

What you need to succeed:
Proven experience as a technical leader and hands-on software architect in a team or multiple teams in an agile environment
Master in architectural trade-offs and disciplined decision making
Talented communicator, with the ability to make complex topics easier to digest by a broad audience
Care about quality and what it means to ship high-quality code at speed
Foster technical decision-making and make final decisions when necessary
The most important one: willingness to learn. We are growing and constantly learning new things, and we enjoy that a lot. As the technology landscape is changing fast and we are coping with such change, we do not expect to find people with experience in all those technologies. If you are excited about our tech stack and you think you are a fast learner, do not hesitate to apply!
