Are you tired of working in a corporate environment with rigid working hours and a clear lack of flexibility?

Do you feel bored and de-motivated?

Do you simply want a new challenge?

If so, then it might be worth sparing a couple of minutes to read this job ad...

A financial company based in Manchester city centre are on the lookout for a technical lead to join their team.

In terms of the role itself, you will be expect to ensure the quality of the delivery of software is of the highest standards that the business expects.

This role isn't 100% hands on, although not every role at this level would be. With regards to the technical side, you will be solving technical uncertainty with advancement of software solutions. On the non-technical side, you will be offering support and guidance to others and organising training where required.

Finally you will liaise with all sections of the business and technology teams through participation in daily scrums, progress and technical meetings.

So in terms of imaging what it would be like to work at this company, let me attempt to paint a picture for you.

You will be working in a collaborative, informal and relaxed work environment with agile teams. You will also be working on a new platform built from scratch using the latest technologies such as AWS, VueJS, Java and Springboot.

One of the most important aspects of a company these days is there culture and I'm just talking about a ping pong table in the kitchen.

The company I'm working understand that culture is key to its employees. This company invests in your growth as a technologist and maybe more importantly as a person. You'll have a manager sit down with you every 3 months to go through your personal development plan - this could be a chance to review salary, talk about what kind of projects you need help with at the time, or just a general chat about your wellbeing - whatever you want out of it, it's your chance to talk to the people in the business who have an impact on your future.

If you want to apply for this role then you are thinking along the right lines. Having knowledge and experience of the following would certainly help your application...

  • Object Oriented (OO) principles and advanced experience in Java and the JVM
  • Understanding of the iterative software development lifecycle: Lean, Agile, Kanban
  • Experience in Agile Practices: XP & Scrum; Pair Programming
  • Experience in Test Driven Development using JUnit, Mockito or other unit test tools
  • Experience of using Build Tools (e.g. Ant, Maven, Gradle) for automated build and deployment and continuous integration
  • Experience of working with Source Control/Configuration Management tools e.g. Git
  • Experience of building RESTful services/systems (JSON, XML)
  • Experience of Integration with services/systems (JSON, RESTful)

In return for all of this you will be paid a salary between £65,000 - £75,000.

Interviews are currently ongoing for this role so it is in your best interests to make your interest known as soon as possible.

Please call me, Callum Robinson on 0113 887 8069, or email your CV . If you don't have a CV, no worries, just drop me a call or an email and let's have a chat.
