Leadership  •  Back End Development

Enjoy managing and leadership but still like getting your hands dirty and stuck into code? This is a position where you have the best of both worlds, where you're offering strategic direction, architectural guidance mentoring and producing code alongside talented engineers.

You will work on a brand new project leading a team of 10 engineers. Working on one of the most exciting projects within the business, building from scratch a core retail system for one of the largest retail organisations across the UK.

As a role model for an experienced team of engineers, you will be a key influence on the overall digital and technology strategy across the organisation implementing industry-leading engineering practices.

This brand new system is being built with a modern Open Source approach with a stack featuring Python, Javascript (React), CI/CD and AWS with a real importance on working in a collaborative environment ensuring clean code, pair programming and TDD/BDD.

As well as working with a team of intelligent engineers at all levels, you will also shape the team further as the project grows under your leadership there will also be opportunities to bring more people into your team.
