What is your dream team?
My company is the middle of a big reorg to make the engineering teams more autonomous and productive. A new role of “Technical Leader” has being created and I tried to apply. Unfortunately, I have not being selected for the interview as there were other candidates with more experience than me. I firmly believe that leadership is not a role and that everyone can be a leader.
If you was the technical leader of a team, what would be your dream team?
This is an extract from my cover letter of what is my dream team:
My dream is to create a team which embraces the vision that maximizing learning is the key to success. A team that believes collaborative working and knowledge sharing is the number one priority. A team that wants to learn more about its customers and the commercial needs of the business in order to find ways to deliver more value. A team where experimenting and challenging the status quo is the norm and where there is no punishment and no fear of failure. A team whose members feel safe to ask for help and talk. A team that values honesty, transparency, and respect in an environment where people constantly give feedback and motivate others. A team that is proud of the clean and simple code it writes and one which cares deeply about design, quality and testing. A team of disciplined engineers who reflect on what they produce, how they work, what tools they use and who want to become masters of their craft. A team that feels like a technical community with a shared and clear goal and which continuously grows. A team where everyone can be a leader.
