What even is an Operations Team Lead? It's a stepping stone to be an Operations Manager. Learn the ropes at this MSP as a Team Lead, helping guide and mentor the support team, then as that team grows, you move into the Operations Manager role and appoint your Team Lead successor from the team.
You still get to be hands on with technical stuff. You also get to do projects and look after a fairly complex hosted environment of client servers. You look after small business clients but also larger data center hosted infrastructure. The best of both worlds. You get to design and deliver projects end to end, mentor and lead a team while helping them support the client base as well as be the Sys Admin for some decent enterprise grade kit.
If you're an all rounder and you're looking for a Team Lead role with one eye on a future manager position. This could be it.
