description

Software Engineering Lead, Java, AWS

A Software Engineering Lead / Senior Developer is required to join an amazing company based in Oxfordshire.

What will the Software Engineering Lead be doing on daily basis?
The Software Engineering Lead will be working on a multi £billion programme of work, advising the team as a Lead/Senior in the team how to get the most effective and efficient delivery. This Lead Developer role has commercial aspects to it, meaning the right person for the role will understand MVP and have the maturity to understand that delivery is key. The environment replicates the “Spotify Model” of Agile and uses technologies such as Java 10, Kafka, AWS and Oracle – but you do not need to be an expert with these technologies, just be flexible enough and interested enough in working with them. Training with these technologies will be provided.

So, what skills do I need to apply for this fabulous opening?
This Lead Developer role does not require you to be an expert in any technology and you don’t need to be the most technical person in the room. What the Developer does need though is the common sense, attitude and application to help the rest of the team with allocating work and delivering that work. The Developer will not be the Scrum Master or the Product Owner or anything, but will help, advise and lead a couple more junior Developers/Engineers on getting results. So, what do you need – essentially:
• Some java exposure – 2 weeks or 2 decades, they are both fine
• Good common sense and a strong aptitude for delivery
• Good communication and ability to advise and mentor more junior members of the team

The Software Engineering Environment:
• Agile, “Spotify Model” style Squads, Tribes and Guilds
• Large, global team with multiple locations and project teams
• Large budgets - £billion programme
• Latest tech stack – Java 10 (will be 11), Kafka, AWS, Oracle R12, Salesforce.

What are company offering for this role? What is in it for you?
• Great salary – up to and around the £79k (If you are all singing, all dancing then I may be able to push the client on this, but no promises)
• An awesome pension – one that puts my employee to shame
• Healthcare and Gym
• Unlimited career progression within the organisation. Can move into Architect type roles, management, Principal Level Developer or move into DevOps type roles even.
• Lots of training – you will get put through as much training and development as possible. AWS certifications, Salesforce qualifications, Java Seminars and conferences, Agile conferences.
• Working from home – as long as more of your time is in the office than out of it, the hiring manager can be flexible with you. That includes moving your day around to fit in with traffic – great for anyone that may be using the A40, A34 or Oxford Ring Road.
• The Manager is a star – he doesn’t micro manage you, but hires experts so that they can do what they do best. If you want a manager that puts trust in you to do your job, then this is a project and a team you want to be part of.
• Help with relocating – if you live too far to commute (even on just 2 or 3 days) then let us know, we can arrange for support with relocating to the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside or a nice home in the City of Oxford.

So, if this Software Engineering Lead sounds the right type of role for you, or even just a project that you want to be part of, let me know. We have similar roles and vacancies within the programme and a great relationship with the business.
