Head of Software Engineering

Location: Central London

Salary: Up to £100K Basic + 15% Bonus + Excellent Benefits Package (14% pension pot, Private health, etc)

Head of Software Engineering | Software Development Manager sought by Media Broadcaster based in the centre of London, with technical experience in Containerised Java 8+ Microservices, team leadership & strong engineering practices.

Ideally, you will want to move your career forward from a “lead” role & progress your career into Software Development Management & Head of Engineering. We’d still expect you to be technical in nature & interest, but this role will be more about team building, leadership, guidance & making sure that the engineering teams are speaking to each other & collaborating as needed!

You’ll take control of a small team of 6 Java Engineers directly, with some responsibility for near-shore resources, testing & mobile app’ developers, within a larger company of circa 80, who in-turn are owned by 2 household names in the media sector. Funding to drive the platform forward will not be an issue.

We will also want your input & to take ownership of growing the Java Engineering team to 10+ within a year or so.

Office culture is incredibly relaxed. We are in the media sector, so jeans, t-shirts & trainers are office dress code really.

Flexible working & work from home are “the norm” & as long as you can collaborate, effectively lead your team & be available for code reviews, Product meetings & Management meetings, then we are very open to work from home.

Technology stack is below. If you have a good amount of experience in most of it, then that would be excellent, but as stated – the main thrust of this role is the technical leadership of the team.

Please give me a call or pop over your CV, or Git profile, or other on-line profile here to me so we can start a conversation about this.

The main stuff we use:

 - Java 8 for maintenance on current features. Java 11 for new feature development.

 - Spring Boot framework with Microservices architecture.

 - Google Cloud Platform  / Cloud technologies.

 - Kubernetes Cluster / orchestration. Docker for containers.

 - We do get hands on with a lot of complex API’s, so any event-driven architecture using Pub/Sub or message brokers knowledge is good.

Keyword stuff: Software Development Manager, Head of Engineering, Technical Lead, Lead Technologist, Senior Java Developer, Java Software Engineer, Google Cloud platform, GCP, Kubernetes, Java 11, Java 8, Spring Boot, Microservices, AWS, Docker, London.
