Looking for an engineering / technology background from a premier institute .
++ 6 years work with a product company in TECH role.
A Technology Lead is the key between the Technology Architects and the developers who actually write the code.
Guiding the team, identifying the right design, fixing conflicts is the bare bones that keeps tech running.
At the same time, fixing the cutting edge problems on the latest technology, making different pieces of code (or even hardware) with each other, and researching the latest tools and techniques is what keeps the team ready for tomorrow.
This is a VERY hands-on tech role and the person is expected to provide tech leadership within their team.
Managing a group of people who are writing code on a daily basis, along with the tech leadership, is what should be the key drivers.
