Senior Java Software Engineer with Java development and project lead experience is required by a global consultancy, as part of a Software Engineering team of 60+. - Will offer Home working also, with the odd trip to the client side in Cheltenham (Which will be fully expensed)

This is an exciting & challenging time and they are looking for a senior/lead engineer with a strong mix of Java, web and application experience to help them accelerate the delivery of their next generation of products.

My client will look at both full-stack developers but also back end developers as there are lots of different projects that you can get involved in.

Experience needed:

  • Strong experience in Java & building customer-focused sites / back end application development
  • Developing highly available, performant RESTful APIs
  • Development of web applications with modern JavaScript web frameworks e.g., React, Angular, Vue etc.
  • Agile methodologies
  • Using TDD (or similar) to deliver high-quality solutions
  • Ability to mentor junior developers and take the lead on projects
  • Ideally some cloud experience AWS or Azure would be a bonus

Ideally looking for some previous experience of taking a senior role within a development team, for example:

  • Taking responsibility for outcomes/delivery as a technical lead.
  • Be the technical expert, the go-to person to solve the most difficult technical challenges.
  • Lead the design and architecture of solutions.
  • Coach the team, sometimes filling a SCRUM Master role and mentor junior team members.

Areas of the role include:

  • Join a team of software engineers, who are responsible for the new customer-facing features & solutions.
  • Help create and push and true Agile and DevOps culture throughout the software engineering function
  • Be that product expert, providing technical leadership and ultimately acting as the technical authority for key decisions across the business
  • Contribute to the development of the application and hardware strategy as well as the implementation of new features.
  • Work closely with the product and delivery teams to release features on the right schedule.
  • Drive continuous delivery practices to deliver high-quality software as well as value to end customers as early as possible.
  • Take responsibility to lead on certain projects and help improve and develop junior members of the team

If you are feeling stagnated in your current software team, or want to be in a true Senior / Lead role then this could be the exact kind of role you are looking for. While they are a consultancy, they don't let people work long hours like other consultancies can. A company that truly believes in work-life balance for all staff, which means people love working for them and tend not to leave.
