Software Lead

Location: Vantaa, Uusimaa, Finland
Date Posted: 09-01-2019
Hello future-maker! We at Amer Sports are building exciting digital solutions for all sports-lovers and right now we are looking for a Software Lead (also known as Squad Lead).

So, what does this Software Lead mean? Well, unlike Team Lead (also known as Chapter Lead) who has line manager responsibilities in a certain software domain, your role is to lead a team of Software Engineers and UX Designers day-to-day work to create concrete value, from planning to consumer delivery. You’ll also bring clarity for the everyday work of the software development squad and enable others to have visibility for progress. In a way you're making sure the project/product development is going smoothly on the software side.

We’re hoping you to be an agile practitioner and have experience in leading a team either from embedded software side or mobile app environments. It wouldn’t harm to have a background in hands-on software development and have a data-driven mindset.
In a nutshell your role is to:
  • Lead the software work from consumer value proposition to consumer value add in a form of software releases
  • Take part in the decision making regarding effort estimation, planning, prioritization and be a key contributor for architecture planning
  • Be part of the Consumer Software leadership team and be a Squad representative in the leads’ daily cross-functional communication
What’s in it for you, you ask? Be the lead of cross functional software team with mission to make the adventures more rewarding - from healthy urbans to experience seeking athletes. Work with interesting tech and the most loveable connected sports equipment in the world by having fun and making a difference.

Do some or all of the above make your mind race with ideas? Let us know about you by Sunday, January 20, 2019. For more information, contact Amer Sports Recruitment Partner Bea Grandell,, +358 40 551 4454.
