In 7 years the Dutch startup has rapidly grown into a company with an international team of over 150 young professionals. While we still have a scale-up vibe, working at Channable also means being part of a professional company. We are the market leader in Benelux and are now conquering the rest of the world, with teams for the US, DACH, Nordics, UK, Iberia, France, and Italy, (usually) based in our office in Utrecht.
While you can still benefit from the start-up vibe, working at Channable also means being part of a professional company with an outstanding development team. We are now looking for a strong Haskell team lead for our Infrastructure team.
We have a strong engineering culture with a focus on correctness, reliability, and maintainability of our code. We have a number of services written in Haskell and in Python. Each service exposes a REST API and our services are composed together in a service-oriented architecture in which we can continuously improve each service.
We employ a continuous integration pipeline that allows us to quickly and safely deploy features, updates, and fixes several times per day. Our infrastructure is running on Google Compute Engine and we strive to automate each part of the software development process as much as possible. We are committed to high engineering standards and are looking for a candidate that shares our values.
We use Haskell extensively for our core software infrastructure, which the Infrastructure (Infra) team is building and maintaining. We are now looking for a second team lead for one of our two Infra teams (Infra Red and Infra Blue). As part of the role, you will spend approximately 50 percent of your time leading and managing the team, while in the other 50 percent you will do hands-on work yourself. Together with your team, you will work on our backend services consisting of several different services, written in Haskell and Python, like a job scheduling system, a high-throughput data processing system, and an API gateway.
You will initially be managing a team of four Haskell developers, which will be growing over time. And you will be working closely together with our second Haskell team lead and with our CTO.
Your day-to-day tasks will include (but are not limited to) the following:

You have previous experience managing an engineering team or you are a senior developer looking to take the next step in your career. You are a mentor to other team members and you help them grow both their hard and soft skills. You like working in a young and dynamic team of skilled engineers discussing technical decisions openly and collaboratively. It is easy for you to break down big issues into smaller tasks, and to prioritize work in a pragmatic way. You recognize yourself in our philosophy of doing things the right way and in our company values. In more concrete terms, we expect you to have the following:
