Flutter Team Lead



Amsterdam, Netherlands · Remote
Posted on Wednesday, July 12, 2023

Stream is looking for a Lead Flutter Developer to head up our SDK development for Feeds, Chat and Video SDKs. Our SDKs are used by thousands of companies and billions of end users.

Building SDKs is a little different from building apps. It takes excellent engineering to build an SDK that other engineers want to use. Our Flutter SDKs are all open-source and hosted on GitHub, giving your the opportunity to showcase the quality of your work and help elevate applications for other developers.

For this role, we’re hiring in Amsterdam or remotely (EMEA).

What you will be doing

As a Flutter Team Lead, you will spend your time on engineering by setting the technical direction of our SDKs, managing sprints, and leading a team of 2 - 3 direct reports. You will also have the opportunity to work closely with other team leads and product leaders at the company.

The challenges

  • You are building SDKs that other developers use. This sets a very high bar in terms of code quality.
  • Our SDKs are used by some of the world’s largest apps. Stability, performance, and world-class documentation are essential.
  • Since we provide APIs & SDKs that thousands of companies use, we can and should optimize to a very high-quality level.

About You

You are/have

  • 3+ years of experience as a Flutter developer
  • 2+ years in a management role
  • A passion for ensuring quality by writing pragmatic automated tests
  • Attention to user experience details - visual look and feel
  • A deep understanding of design and interaction with REST APIs
  • Experience building libraries or tools that are used by developers

The opportunity of true ownership and accountability has a massive impact on your career. These are the things you can rarely experience in huge corporations.

While working with cutting-edge technology, we are passionate about tackling difficult tech problems at scale and creating reusable components for them, empowering engineering teams to ship apps faster, more securely, and with a better user experience.
