Who we are and what we do

Deel is a global team that helps businesses hire anyone, anywhere, easily. Deel consists of more than three thousand self-driven individuals spanning over 100 countries. Our unified yet diverse culture keeps us continually learning and innovating the Deel platform and our products for customers.

Companies should be able to hire the best talent anywhere in the world, so we are building the best platform to make that a reality. Our market-leading technology, expertise, and global team are crucial to the success of Deel’s platform. We deliver the best products and platform features in our space, enabling millions of jobs worldwide and connecting the global workforce with the best companies and opportunities.

Why should you be part of Deel's success story?

A 30-mile hiring radius should no longer dictate how companies hire because great talent lives everywhere. Deel sees a world without hiring borders and endless talent that pairs perfect candidates with great companies.

We offer global teams all the tools they need to hire, onboard, manage, pay, and scale at full speed. We aim to foster a diverse global economy by building a generational platform that seamlessly connects companies with talent worldwide.

There’s never been a more exciting time to join Deel — the market leader in international payroll and compliance.

As an Engineering Team Lead at Deel, you will be responsible for leading a small cross-functional team (6-10 professionals) to meet organizational goals.

We develop at scale, we innovate rapidly and we put our customers first - Despite our company size, Deel very much operates like a start-up, so the ability to wear different hats and juggle multiple competing priorities is crucial.

  • Provide your input at all stages of the Development Lifecycle; Design, coding, testing and production release

  • Craft web applications that embody accessibility and TDD best-practices.

  • Collaborate closely with design and product teams to create extraordinary product experiences.

  • Deliver clean, efficient code in an agile team environment.

  • Push boundaries through rapid prototyping and iterative development, always driving innovation.

  • Possess a passion for technology and developing cutting-edge, scalable, and robust software systems.

  • Mentor and provide technical leadership to your team.

  • Conduct code reviews to drive the team to excellence in Node and Java web applications.

  • Explore new avenues for innovation through rapid prototyping and iterative development.

What you’ll bring to the Team Lead role:

  • Expertise in JavaScript technologies for application design, development and testing (Our team use Node.js on the backend and React.js on the frontend)

  • Good knowledge of TypeScript and developing applications on top of RESTful API’s.

  • Leading small teams whilst being hands-on comes with ease

  • You have a true passion for developing user experiences that are nothing short of amazing.

  • You're hungry to learn, experiment and share knowledge with others, driving innovation every step of the way.

  • You've navigated the real world of cross-browser, cross-platform and design constraints on the web like a pro.

  • Automated unit, functional, and integration tests are your bread and butter - you develop and execute them in your sleep.
