Lead Engineer - £55,000-£65,000

I am partnering up with one of my longest tenured clients to aid with the recruitment of several software engineering team leads to be based out of their office in Central Manchester. They are a market leading eCommerce provider, operating as a market leader and with an excellent reputation for utilising new technologies. They consider themselves to be a 'tech company within an eCommerce provider', driven by technology and using it as an enabler rather than a blocker.

The role is heavily focuses around product development (both existing and greenfield) utilising JavaScript frameworks such as React and Angular as well as additional front end technologies including HTML5, CSS3, AJAC, JQuery and Bootstrap. You will be expected to work across the full Software Development Lifecycle and will be involved in a number of methodologies/processes including Agile/Scrum, TDD, BDD and DevOps.

So in essence…. It's pretty hybrid!

In terms of specific requirements, they are ideally looking for a number of skills. But rather than just regurgitating the JD, I wanted to highlight a few of them below
  • Web Technologies - A wide range of web based skills is also crucial to be considered for this position. You will essentially come in as a 'full stack' Senior Engineer so should have knowledge of both back end and client side/UI applications. Good Commercial Experience with JavaScript frameworks (React, Angular, Vue) and front end technologies including HTML, CSS and Bootstrap.
  • Agile Methodologies - Whilst they aren't a 'pure agile' tech house (I mean… who is?) Agile does play an important part in their engineering process and they endeavour to utilise methodologies/processes including Scrum, Kanban, XP, DevOps and Continuous Integration. A wider understanding of multiple methodologies is therefore important when considering submitting an application for this role.

In return, you will benefit from a competitive base salary (between £60,000- £70,000) as well as flexible working hours, home working and their company benefits package.
