I am partnering up with a Global Analytics Agency who are looking to recruit an experienced Software Development Lead with proven commercial experience in Scala/Java to be based out of their London HQ.


The company work with a range of leading brands in the Telecommunications and Online Retail space, utilising their state of the art data platforms to produce a range of services including market analysis, market forecasts, research reports and industry metrics. They are considered to be a thought leader in their specified verticals and are going through a huge period of expansion in 2019.


The role is hybrid, focusing on a mix of technical leadership, architectural direction, people management and stakeholder management. You will be given the autonomy to design and build a range of platforms in Scala, ensuring that everything developed is testable, repeatable, scalable and most importantly automated. You will be expected to mentor and coach Junior Developers, acting as an SME in the team for all things software engineering, as well as managing a team of 4 Software Engineers on a day-to-day basis.


Moreover, the role offers excellent progression with the long-term goal moving into a Head of Engineering role, as well as the chance to work with cutting edge technologies in an Agile/DevOps environment.


In terms of their requirements, they are looking for the following:



  • Proven leadership experience including people management, team leadership and technical leadership. Previous experience working as either a Technical Lead, Development Manager or Software Engineering Manager would be ideal.

  • Experience managing both technical and non-technical stakeholders, ideally up to c-level if possible.

  • Proven commercial experience working with the Scala tech stack (Scala, Play, Lift, Scalatra, Akka etc.) and/or Java technologies (Java 7/8, Spring Boot, Hibernate, JBoss).

  • Knowledge of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Microservices and Web Services (REST, SOAP, JSON).

  • Exposure to Cloud technologies including AWS and Azure.

  • Proven understanding of modern engineering practices including Agile (Scrum), Test Driven Development (TDD), Behaviour Driven Development (CDD), DevOps and CI/CD.


In return, you will benefit from a highly competitive base salary (between £100,000 - £120,000) alongside an annual bonus (15%-30%), company pension (6%) and 26 days holiday. You will also be offered the opportunity to progress via their tailored 'T-Model' development plan, aimed at fleshing out the skills of their employees.
