I am partnering up with one of our long-term clients to aid with the recruitment of several Lead Software Engineers 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 focused around product development (both existing and greenfield), utilising a diverse set of technologies including Java (7, 8), PHP, MySQL, Docker and Jenkins. Additionally, you will get the chance to work with JavaScript frameworks such as React and Angular as well as additional front end technologies including HTML5, CSS3, AJAX, 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... its 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:

Software Engineering - The core focus of this role will involve working in a product-focused environment, getting involved in both brownfield and greenfield development. The main tech stack they operate is Java (Java 7/8, Spring, Hibernate) but they have a diverse estate including both C++ and PHP. You should therefore come from a solid programming background with an understanding of back end software engineering and object oriented principles.

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. Experience with JavaScript frameworks (React, Angular, Vue) and front end technologies including HTML, CSS and Bootstrap would therefore be hugely beneficial.

Agile Methodologies - Whilst they arent 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.
