About the job

Lead Software Engineer, Manchester Up to £70k

I know what you are thinking, just another job advert a few keywords and a bit of vague information that means the job could be anything, literally anywhere.

Well Not today.

Here in this moment, reading this advert, this might just change your life because I know your application will change mine.

I would like to do this without any clichs, but lets face it we cant get through without some sometimes.

So here it is

This life changing moment begins with a
Lead Software Engineering role in a bustling Northern Technology Power House. Its nothing too big, only one of the biggest ecommerce companies in the world and they are looking for you. A Software Engineer of either Senior or Lead capacity looking to delve into a deep Enterprise challenge.

This modern company work as close to an
Agile Environment as could possibly be, keeping close to their promise of only working with the technologies of today and tomorrow. There are no legacy systems here, and no dinosaurs in this office. They are a modern, relaxed environment with an office that boasts some of the best facilities in the area and the recreational space to match.

The moment your life changes is when you tell me that you can master the art of
dealing with stakeholders,
code like no other,
lead a team and be really
passionate about technology. I am looking for someone with
Java knowledge, or
PHP (either works), who understands
Agile like it was the back of their hand and just gets Architectural principles.

Here is what is important:

HandsOn Technical Experience my client needs someone who wants to still be close with the technology, they are looking for someone to be able to code as well as step up to manage when it is needed. You will be second inline to the throne, you will be the voice of technology and can code with your eyes closed but will be able to hold the torch when the time comes.
Java will go down sweetly and frameworks such as
Spring, Hibernate and J2EE will be close seconds.
PHP gurus are encouraged to apply to!

Agile aware part of your role will be to influence the Agile environment and habitat this company have grown. The ideal candidate will understand methodologies, host standups if needed and plan sprints. This is an urgent requirement of the client, if you are to become the Lead within this team, you need to show them the ropes. A good solid understanding of
TDD/BDD will seal the deal.

Leadership If my client is to bestow the powers of this role upon you, they need you to prove you have led teams before. Any evidence of mentoring or coaching and giving a project direction will do exactly this.

So, interested in changing your life?
