Software Engineer, Team Lead
A Team Lead is responsible for the overall planning, execution and success of the software solutions their team creates.
As a team lead, a good amount of your time is spent identifying and clearing roadblocks for your team. This requires effective collaboration skills.
You need to collaborate with different business functions in order to get what your team needs to move forward. From collaborating with the Software Engineering management team, to Product Designers to get high fidelity designs of a particular feature, to Operations to ensure the developers on your team have the right hardware to get their job done.
A great team lead thinks ahead, anticipates risks, and addresses them before they become a bottleneck for the team.
