Team description

Our Cloud and Infrastructure (C&I) community mission is "We provide services, tools, support to give Adevinta developers an excellent cloud-native developer experience. We make it easy and efficient to ship and operate secure, flexible, and scalable solutions for Adevinta's customers". The Cloud Platform community helps developers take their deployable artefacts to production and operate their products.

The Runtime team is part of the Cloud Platform community, so you will report to the Head of r¡the Cloud Platform team. We provide SCHIP, a multi-cluster (30+), multi-region (4), multi-tenant (80+) Kubernetes runtime, as a service to the rest of Adevinta. We aim to offer the best runtime experience so our users — other developers — can build and run their applications, not the underlying infrastructure. As of today, we're serving more than 8 billion requests per day, on average (200k rqps at peak time) and serving final users looking for a new job, car or flat across Europe.

Position responsibilities

  • Be the liaison between the team and the organisation:
  • Ensure the team's external blockers and issues are correctly identified, communicated and addressed.
  • Work with the team's Product Owner(s) and the larger product organisation to ensure the team is building the right products.
  • Collect strategy and high-level direction from senior management to influence roadmaps and short-term backlogs, and be the representative and advocate of the team in the upper-management councils.
  • Communicate big updates & act as mediator between the team and other parts of the organisation, including in case of major issues (technical and otherwise)
  • Maintain healthy team dynamics and keep the team output at high levels of velocity, quality and reliability.
  • Career development and mentoring for team members.
  • Help the teams with coordination/agreement/methodology challenges.
  • Support the team and help them with high-level tech decisions, technical architecture, and to raise blockers and needs from the organisation.
  • Read, review and evaluate code, and if necessary, write it.
  • A mindset for continuous improvement and identifying improvement areas.


You are looking for a job where most of the efforts are NOT invested in tech matters (able to delegate, trust but follow and "challenge" your teams):

  • Good partner management skills.
  • Expertise in similar tech challenges.
  • Team Lead, better with experience managing multiple teams.
  • Good foundations on Agile methodologies.
  • Strong tech foundations (Software Engineering, Ops / DevOps, Cloud / Distributed Systems)
  • Global mindset / engineering teams and components at scale
  • Structured, analytical, with also good foundations on Agile methodologies/working frameworks.
  • Strong problem solving skills.
  • Experience and interest in modern development tools and practices.

Company description

We’re Adevinta, a global leader in digital marketplaces. Our household name brands, including Marktplaats in the Netherlands, in Germany and leboncoin in France, reach hundreds of millions of people every month.

We’re all about matchmaking, and our sites help people find whatever they’re looking for in their local communities – whether it’s a car, an apartment, a sofa or a new job. Every connection made or item found makes a difference by creating a world where people share more and waste less.

Our brands are supported by global Tech Hubs in Barcelona, Amsterdam, Paris and Berlin. Their goal is to develop common global products and innovation platforms which all of our brands can use. This means using cutting edge technology to create highly scalable, customisable and secure products and components that free up development time and leverage our access to global data.

Adevinta is an equal opportunity employer and we value diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status or disability status.

If you feel like you don’t meet all of the requirements for this role but are interested, please consider applying anyway. Research suggests that women and individuals from underrepresented groups may self-select out of opportunities if they don’t meet 100% of the job requirements. We strongly encourage people from historically excluded groups to apply and look forward to speaking with you.
