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.
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.
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.
