Information about Tubes division Lead developer

English After some months working in Pornhub I was moved to a multiple tube sites project as Lead Developer. The switch was because of a structure change within the company: the lack of leaders in the team was affecting productivity and good quality of the code. We were missing coordination between different teams, and even inside the same team because we had back-end developers splitted in only two big teams. The change was raising more developers as lead developers, in order to focus more exhaustively on each project.

In that situation some developers realized that the lack of a leader was affecting our work, and thus we took in practice the leader role; without the official title. Some months later the company realized that, and made official that schema. In this context I became lead software developer of 4 tube sites, with 15 million registered users and about 19-21 million visitors a day in total.

All sites I'm managing are using different technologies, but they are not having the best from them. My work is to improve the framework and code of these sites -they are all using the same framework-, while training new developers.

From the point of view of management, I'm in charge of getting tasks from the Product Manager and understanding his priorities; while coordinating with other teams and members of my team to deliver a good quality code. I report to the Development Manager, who also participates in key decisions like migration strategies or infrastructure changes.
