Job Description

Java Tech Lead - Java 8, AWS, Greenfield

I'm looking for Tech Leads or Senior Java Engineers that are looking for something genuinely challenging, that want to create something new & fresh and that value high quality code, that is flexible & scalable.

If you want to set the tone, rather than 'walk-to-the-beat of someone else's drum', read on….


2 X Tech Leads are required for a greenfield venture to develop a new platform that our client is developing for a organisation that has over 7 million members. The role involves joining a new organisation that is been created as a joint venture between a technology company & a well-known 'not-for-profit organisation' that have handed our client control of their digital strategy as part of the JV.

The Tech Lead roles will head up a new Squad each (will in a SAFe model), overseeing the development different elements of the wider platform, mentoring other less experienced developers, contribute to architectural decisions and tooling, but fundamentally produce high-quality code, within a fast paced environment.

The platform itself involves B2B & B2C aspects, will be highly transactional & data-driven - apologies for the vagueness, but there is some degree of commercial sensitivity around the platform.

The tech stack current includes Java 8, Spring, Spring Boot, AWS, Hibernate, Android & iOS, DynamoDB, but will incorporate Python, Node.js, JavaScript & React.js in later releases.

We are looking for technically savvy people, that have team or tech lead experience or senior engineers that feel confident that they can lead others.


We can pay up to £65,000, offer flexible working with the occasional day from home, stunning city centre offices.

Some points to consider:

  • The work is in its infancy, therefore you can drive the quality & help define the culture
  • You are not rectifying pre-existing code
  • As the platform scales, there is a genuine scope to progress into an architecture role
  • You will get the chance to help build your own team
