Job Title: Technical Lead (Technical Success Manager)


About the Role

  • As a Technical Success Manager, you will primarily manage Developers placed on engagements with Partners, and ensure that teams are working well together. You would walk a very fine line between the Success of our Partners and the Success of our Developers. Our Partners operate in a wide-range of industries, but their common thread is that they create mobile and/or web-based products that bring value to their customers through the use of technology.
  • As a key Partner-facing member of  Andela’s Partner support team, you will be responsible for providing team and engagement support in relevant areas. Our core consulting model is embedded software developers and teams.
  • Distributed work environments are growing in popularity but the lack of physical proximity still brings unique operational challenges. No two days will ever be alike, variety will be constant.
  • With your knowledge of business, technology, remote communication and agile project management, you will help make the distance between our engineers and their teams---thousands of kilometers in most cases---feel like a logistical afterthought.

  • Direct Management of up to 20 Developers embedded within global Partners, to ensure their success

    • Ensuring Developer’s delivery are aligned with Partners goals and visions
    • Ensuring that Developers understand business context, value and impact of their tasks
    • Working with Developers in regards task brainstorm, decomposition and prioritization
    • Providing high level design support on how to solve specific coding challenges.
    • Performing code reviews when required
  • Guide the first 30-days impression relative to effective communication, on-boarding expectations etc.
  • Share, advocate for and promote best practices in engagements across their team
  • Mentor and Coach direct reports on their team
  • Accountable for Partner and Developer related action plans, to resolve delivery concerns
  • Support Success via reporting compliance using key internal tools
  • KPI monitoring/review to enable Partner/Team/Developer success and compliance
  • Collaborate on Developer’s Performance Management: tracking, plans, process, review, survey
  • Support the Senior Success Manager (SSM) on strategic, operational, and team areas
  • Effective collaboration with other Success Managers (Success Operations, Consultant Manager etc.)
