Team Lead - Full-stack - PHP and ReactJS (f/m/x)


With its leading delivery platform to ship parcels, Seven Senders makes international shipping a simple matter. Established in 2015, we have 280+ employees and have delivered 100m+ parcels thus far.

Are you bored with refactoring the code or reading somebody else’s code and trying to understand what happened before? Do you want to create brand-new applications with your team by practicing clean code principles?

For our new project, we are creating a new team that will develop a backend service, including two frontend apps from scratch: one customer-facing and one for internal use.

In this role, you will act as a technical lead and people manager. You will be working hands-on to develop products with your team, guiding team members on technical topics while showing servant leadership philosophy to support team success and wellbeing.

Our technical tech stack for the products will be PHP 8.x, Symfony 6.x, API-Platform 3.x, TypeScript, ReactJS, MongoDB, Git, Docker, Amazon Web Services, SQS, Kafka, Kubernetes and Terraform. Also, we are using Domain Driven Design / Hexagonal Architecture.

The essence of your role:

  • Building internal and B2C products from scratch with your team

  • Leading a team of four (backend and full-stack engineers), reporting to Senior Engineering Manager

  • Collaborating closely with the Product Manager, and other engineering teams

  • Leading the team, having performance reviews and one-to-ones with them, supervising them on technical topics

This is what you need to succeed:

  • 5+ years of professional experience with PHP and Symfony (or Laravel)

  • 2+ years of experience as a full-stack engineer (TypeScript / ReactJS)

  • Strong experience with NoSQL databases (MongoDB is desirable), Docker, and Git

  • 1+ years experience in leading a team with best practices in Agile Methodologies

  • Good English communication skills both verbal and written

7 reasons to join Seven Senders:

  • Flexibility: Recently we moved to our new brand office, we have a hybrid model of working with flexible remote-office set-up and flexible working hours. And if you wish, for 2 months per year you can work from almost anywhere.
  • Benefits: We offer annual inflation increases, a 15 % subsidy for the company pension scheme (BAV), up to 2,500 € relocation allowance, German & English language courses, mental & physical health program, choice of own hardware, and corporate benefits platform.
